Brother Theodore - Fate Conspires With Destiny To Do Me Dirt (1959-1972)
Iron Mountain Analog Research - Vinyl LP w/ 7" Vinyl
The Fevered Rantings of a Delusional Madman? Or… The Profound Musings of a Stand-Up Tragedian? You decide. Here, reissued for the very first time, are the seminal recordings of Brother Theodore. Theodore was a staple of late-night talk shows like the Late Night With David Letterman show, a denizen of dubious ‘70s exploitation films such as the ‘Jaws’ sex-parody GUMS and the disco-vampire flick Nocturna, onetime Chess Champion of New York City and alleged offspring of Albert Einstein. Whether raving at midnight at Carnegie Hall or delivering dark diatribes over musique-concrete tape mash-ups, Theodore was unlike anyone before or since. Prohibitively rare and criminally misunderstood, the masters thought lost or destroyed for decades, Brother Theodore’s premier recordings are now presented in a new and official deluxe edition. Lectures to abandon bipedalism, craven bloodthirsty hallucinations, bongo beatnik-ism and Marshall McLuhanian pre-Post-Modernism - Brother Theodore was a philosopher, metaphysician and comedian of the grotesque - an absurdist storyteller, delivering masterful expressionist-horror monologues and nihilistic gallows humour dialogues. In these days of darkness and doubt, of crisis and confusion, what the world needs is a truly great soul. BROTHER THEODORE IS THAT SOUL.
