Xerox Exotique #030: Bodycocktail – James Wyness – The big Black riding Hoods – 30.08.2018

Bodycocktail: “Nobody loves you my way. My heart, my soul, my way.” Across 25 years Zan Hoffman’s Bodycocktail project has nearly 250 releases ~ in excess of 2200 songs. Popular on Spain’s west coast in Galicia this artist from Kentucky has an extensive history in home-taping. 1984-2011 his label ZH27 was a networking powerhouse of creativity responsible for over 1100 releases including collaborations with over 300 artists worldwide. But these eye-watering figures do little to describe the wonder of his concerts. Zan’s live shows display consummate artistic commitment and are full of love and wonder. “Nobody loves you my way, no way!” he croons with the deepest sincerity. There are few artist that win over audiences unfamiliar to their work like Zan does.

The big Black riding Hoods [capitalization their choice] are an illusive triumvirat shrouded in mystery. Who are they? What do they do? Why do they do it? And probably most pressing: WHAT are they?

Rumours abound: A rogue darknet AI made flesh through chthonic incantations? An escalated experiment in transgenetic altercation? Apocryphal angels avenging altered atavistic anachronists?
Come… and try to find out.
