Missing Links

Porter fought the robots the only way he knew how -- by deleting the Mainframe! Sure, mankind was thrown back into the dark ages of no Mannlicher Carcano Radio Show archive links except for the ones on, but now mankind can crawl back from the ooze all over again and relive those glory days of gradually emerging higher consciousness, as if nobody had ever listened to Mannlicher Carcano before! Let's start here:

Do you, Really?

These next two should work, but have no associated file, we'll check it out...

OK, let's try one more and see if there's something screwy going on with the archive...

This is okay! This one is alright! This one is alright! This one is all right!!

MC Live at Art Basil LA 2016

 This is the youtube archive of Mr. Let's Paint TV's live stream from the Art Basil LA art fair in his backyard in Van Nuys CA. The actual performance is the first hour +45 or so, then there's an MC soundtrack over a fairly minimal video, then several more hours of less eventful documentation. Participating in this performance, which was the LA segment of the regular Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour, were Really Happening, Kenneth Friendliness, and Herr Schurdt, with cameo appearances from Mr. Let's Paint TV and new member Sun Dog, plus sonic backwash from Porter in Newfoundland. The actual broadcast version of the show will be linked here shortly.

In 1985, at the nadir of L. Cohen's career (his masterpiece Various Positions having been released only in Canada), Mannlicher Carcano resolved to jump start it by lending the weight of their endorsement via a tribute LP of Cohen covers, to be entitled "LEONARD COHENS GREATEST HITS (as performed by mannlicher carcano)", and they recorded 3 or 4 numbers before Jennifer Warnes (who had apparently been listening in to private conversations in the Tower of Song commissary) beat them to the punch. On Saturday, Nov 13 2016, the group realized one of the originally conceived covers with this profound yet danceable rendition of one of Cohen's most obscure numbers, the rambling, desperate "Please Don't Pass Me By (A Disgrace)" from 1970. Dig.

PS: This version does not appear on the broadcast version of the radio show linked below. So you'll just have to download both.

This is Really Happening!

Douglas Coupland

What if, in the tech world, there is no next big thing? First we had fire, then came the wheel, and the PC, then the internet and then Google and then the iPhone and then … that’s it. There’s nothing more left to come. We’re waiiiiiiting—but no, we’ve received all there’s going to be and tech’s broad strokes have all happened. Does this sound scary, or kind of sad? We can laugh at such a proposition because we know it’s not going to happen. We might dream of a year when people would just stop inventing new things, but in reality there’s going to be more and more new stuff. All of us will continue our lives permanently vibrating on the tech revolution’s vertical asymptote—screaming like Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby, mid-coitus with the devil: “Oh my God, this is really happening!”

Go!Go! Smart Animals = Radio Show MP3 backlog?!

I'm not sure how many of these 15 links are still active, but we'll put them up now, and adjust them as they're checked -- the first few should connect to shows. Quite a backlog! UPDATE: Dang! Well, what with expired links and mysteriously dysfuctional ones, we whittled about 30 hours of material down to 6. Guess you'll just have to wait for Courtesy Flush Volume 3!

Mannlicher Carcano on Glossolalia

Free 2 hour mp3 of Mannlicher Carcano on Glossolalia last week. Glossolalia, hosted by Mitchell Brown and Don Bolles can be heard every Monday from 6 - 8 PM on KXLU 88.9 FM in Los Angeles, and streaming 24/7 at

Mannlicher Carcano admin took over the timeslot on April 04 2016 to create a roughly chronological 2-hour profile of the band. The recording of this intervention was tweaked back at HQ to maximize diversity and cut back on the yikyak.

This recording is historically notable for the return of founding member Gogo Godot to full participation after an absence of 7 years! Listen for his electric aluminum cello...

Rediscovered 2001 Mannlicher installation soundtrack NOW AVAILABLE!

Now available for free download at

Mannlicher Carcano  Off Register (2001/2015) 1:17:31 mp3 @ 320 (+ other formats)

Soundtrack to Mannlicher Carcano's audio installation Off Register.
"Mannlicher Carcano: Off Register"
2001-07-24 until 2001-07-24
University Art Museum, CSU Long Beach
Long Beach, CA, USA United States of America

Mannlicher Carcano's Off Register is a soundscape created by the simultaneous playing of three individually composed sections of different lengths, which constantly recombine into new configurations. Mannlicher Carcano is comprised of three members, Porter Hall, Really Happening, and Gogo Godot, each of whom lives in a different North American city.

Each collaborator created his portion of Off Register without knowledge of the other components, thereby creating a sound environment removed from both geographical specificity and individual creative intent. The work is a continuation of the group’s Ambient Narrative series, which uses narrative elements and structures (musical, verbal, documentary, and theatrical), and assembles them into a shifting, participatory, non-hierarchical continuum.

This particular iteration is a reconstruction. Although a field recording of the installation was made, its present whereabouts is unknown. The three individual CDRs that constituted the components of the piece - thought lost - were recently unearthed in Really Happening's audio dungeon, fallen behind a moldering Optigan. These were mixed into a single track simulating the mix an auditor standing in the center of the gallery might hear. Other mixes, including one that simulates the experience of moving through the space, may be forthcoming.

Mannlicher Carcano is an experimental, improvisational audio collage group who have been working together since 1987, creating performances, recordings, installations, and radio art. They produce a weekly radio and web-cast, The Mannlicher Carcano Radio Hour, and have released over 25 cassettes, CDs, CDRs, and vinyl recordings.

New Mannlicher Carcano LP "Reconstituted Cream of CRCA" available for free DL!

In 1992 Mannlicher Carcano was invited to perform at UC San Diego’s prestigious Center for Research in Computers in the Arts, or CRCA. Extra performers included Minister Altair-5 and the Ex- Rev John Poo Poo Bleeding Bear von Higham, and hundreds of sound and image producing devices (none of which had anything to do with computers). Several hours of the performance recordings were later reduced by Porter Hall into a two-minute track using a laborious analog tape-to-tape dubbing process, and subsequently released as Condensed Cream of CRCA on the 1993 cassette War Measures Act (also included on several subsequent compilations).

Reconstituted Cream of CRCA consists of that track digitally re-expanded into an hour-long ambient composition by Really Happening. It is available for a limited time as a free download at dropbox. The cover image above is a detail of a lo-res thumbnail of Porter's graphic score for the original condensation, resampled to 300 dpi and color-inverted.

MC gets some love from the press FINALLY

Mannlicher Carcano – Hyperactive Agency Detection (MCRH20140621)

A bit more cartoonish, a blending mix of sounds that are coming across as coming from someone with a sense of humor. A nice delay effect in which the stuff seems to be thrown in. You can hear the sound maker enjoying and if you listen carefully; you can hear your reviewer enjoying himself too.

- Kai Nobuko


Here's the album

and here's the FULL review!

JFK = 10/6//11 = 27 X 51 X [9/11 =] 20 = 27,540

Presidential Doodle by JFK - Clearly during Operation Northwoods, a Masonic cabal proposed flying planes into skyscrapers as a false flag operation to justify another invasion of Cuba, and set the date for the hermetic reasons outlined below.

"WTC Facts:

The date of the attack: 9/11 - 9 + 1 + 1 = 11.
Each building had 110 stories.
After September 11th there are 111 days left to the end of the year.
September 11th is the 254th day of the year: 2 + 5 + 4 = 11.
119 is the area code for Iraq/Iran. 1 + 1 + 9 = 11, 911 - 119 are opposites - enemies?
11 11 polarity.
Twin Towers - standing side by side, looks like the number 11.
The first plane to hit the towers was Flight11.
State of New York - The 11th State added to the Union.
"New York City" has 11 letters.
"Afghanistan" - 11 letters.
"The Pentagon" - 11 letters.
"Ramzi Yousef" - 11 letters (convicted of orchestrating the attack on the WTC in 1993).
Flight 11 - 92 on board - 9 + 2 = 11.
Flight 11 had 11 crew members onboard.
Flight 77 - 65 on board - 6 + 5 = 11.

Flight 11, 93, 175, 77 - If these numbers are broken down, 11 actually remains the same in numerology, 93 becomes 12, 175 becomes 13 and 77 becomes 14. 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 Broken down again and you have
2 - 3 = 4 - 5. Add them all up and break them all down!

11 + 93 + 175 + 77 = 356 = 14 = 5
11 + 12 + 13 + 14 = 50 = 5
2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 14 = 5

The Master Number

As before mentioned, the number 11 has special significance. In Numerology it is not reduced to a single digit. It is a power number as is 22, 33 etc. The number 11 represents the vision. The number 22 combines vision with action. The number 33 offers guidance to the world. The master numbers 11, 22, and 33 represent a triangle. A triangle of enlightenment or illumination.

11 22

July 6, 1946 was George Bush's birthday. It can be reduced to the power number 33:
7/6/1946 => 7 + 6 = 13, 1946 => 1 + 9 + 4 + 6 = 20. 20 + 13 = 33 .. .. 11 + 22. George is a member of Skull and Bones (a spin-off of the Brotherhood) just like his father and grandfather. Seems old Dubya is a master in more ways than just President of United States. There is more to George's name then meets the eye as you will soon find out. First let's look at what else the occult has to say about its 'master number'.

11 is a "master number or "power number" as most numerologists will testify. It is a number which cannot be reduced by adding the two digits. 11 is associated with someone who is on a higher plane of existence. Someone who brings "mystical revelation". Someone who often feels slightly distant from the people surrounding him or her, and has trouble feeling any real empathy for them. Also, this is sometimes the number of the matyr.

The blue cord of the mason masters is large of 11 cm.

The Hebrews concider it to be a bad number.

The Number of the knowledge of God is 11. According to Arabs, this one passing by 11 steps.
In the Golden Dawn, There are also 11 steps, or degrees,. Aleister Crowley revered this number as well when he said that the whole object of magick was the 5 (black, yin, pentagonal) with 6 (white, yang, hexagonal) – thus making 11!

The general number of magic or sorcery and magicians. The individual in confrontation with the world. The number of war and the battle with the demonic element (The images of the destruction played over and over again could certainly be considered mind-control-sorcery).

The symbol of Martyrdom.

Symbol of the interior flight, the rebellion and the mislaying which results from it.

The trangression of the law is represented by 11 because of it exceeding the number ten by 1. That is the one of the Decalogue. According to Saint Augustin, it represents the sin. The punishment of the wicked is asked in Psalm 11 (Vulgate numbering). This symbolism is confirmed by theoretical speculations. If you added all numbers from 1 to 11 they will equal 66. And by multiplying 11 by 6 (the number of evil) you get 66. If you added the two digits together it is reminiscent of the Roman number II (number of both the division and corruption).

11 is the number expressing more than human sin in general or cosmic. According to R. Allendy."
