snacktime - 32 pc. vintage party set @ the way out club 9/23/2014

• February 19th, 2015

John Parker and Justin Pitonak have made a name for themselves in the STL music scene in a relatively short period of time, playing with their various projects (32 Pc. Vintage Party Set, Pet Rock: the Musical, and Stone Hen), and booking a series of ambitious and successful shows with diverse lineups that straddle several genres.  This piece, entitled "John Carpenter Lied To Me" closed out an evening at the good old Way Out Club back in September, a sparsely attended show that Davelybob booked as part of the Way Out's 20th anniversary celebration.  Not a lot of people came, but every single set that evening was blisteringly great (also on the bill were The Top Grossing Films of 1984, Jaded Evil Lambs, A Black Cat, and all the way from Indiana, the amazing chiptunes artist Hypnogram).  Luckily Dingus and his Zoom recording thingus were there to document it all, so you don't feel too terribly left out by not having been there.  But next time, don't fuck around.  Get your ass to the show.

snacktime - undercurrent #1 bonus track: catholic guilt

• February 12th, 2015

Here is the rest of Catholic Guilt's set at the first Undercurrent show way back on 1/30/2014 at the Schlafly Tap Room.  The rest of their set was featured on the cassette put out by Eat Tapes, and available to download or stream at

Catholic Guilt is playing a show tonight at Melt (2712 Cherokee) with Larva Lu and Taboo from Portland, Maine, and three acts from Nebraska: Coyote, Black Pillar, and Aqua-Eroticum (who played here back in November at the show at Plush that spawned the Janet/Jaded Evil Lambs collab a couple snacktimes ago- highly recommended noizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzze).  10 PM - 12AM, short and sweet, $8 get you in, additional $$$ gets you merch, booze, and waffles.  Do it.
Undercurrent WAS a production of Wrong Division, Paradoxal Pterodactyl,, and Schlafly Tap Room.  Recorded live by Charlie Nehr and David Bell, the two recordings were mixed together by Brad Schumacher, edited and retouched for the podcast by Dingus. <- FREE DOWNLOADS- ALL 12 UNDERCURRENT MIXTAPES! <- UNDERCURRENT VISUAL INSANITY

snacktime - undercurrent #12 side c

• January 29th, 2015

Tonight is the very last Undercurrent event at the Schlfafly Tap Room, and the release of the last FREE cassette mixtape.  If you've missed out on everything so far, or are a completist, or just love us all that much, there will also be a limited edition box set available for purchase (proceeds go to Stephen Houldsworth's Ferguson leadership fund), which includes all 12 tapes, a specially made box with two different covers to hold them all, and a REALLY groovy DVD from capturing some of his favorite perfomances from the whole series paired with video of the live improvised video projections he was running with them.  A very exciting set, only 10 available, $75 each.  And as always, great beer, great food, and great tunes. Tonight we have encore performances by Trauma Harness and CaveofSwordS, two exciting new bands Hardbody (members of Braining and Stonechat) and Skin Tags (members of Little Big Bangs and Spelling Bee), and the ever amazing GHOST ICE. 

So, tonight's the last show, and this is the Side C for the last mixtape, featuring 18andCounting, Animal Teeth, The Conformists (totally taking the piss, I might add), Ben Hanna, and Skarekrau Radio.  It's an interesting mix and an appropriate send-off for the Undercurrent series, but don't think the fun is over yet.  There is still lots of material we'll be dropping for a while longer- we'll have the missing Side C for #7 eventually (was a problem with one of the recordings, it's fixable but haven't had the time just yet), several additional selections to be released as individual bonus tracks, maybe some bootleg audio from tonight, and then some of the remaining clips may just find their way into episodes of Paradoxal Pterodactyl, so please do stick around for all the fun to be found in this feed.  It's been a fun journey together thus far, right?

This one-off improvised collaboration between Grace Smith (Janet) and David Bell (Jaded Evil Lambs) was recorded at Plush STL (RIP) on 11/24/2014.  It was an interesting evening to say the least.

Speaking of, one week from today (1/23/2015) there is a killer noise show going on at Livery Company, featuring Janet, Jaded Evil Lambs, Small Pox Champion, and Fecal Dam as the STL locals and the EXCELLENT touring lineup of Mass Comm (Dayton, OH), BOAR (Dubuque, IA), and Justin Marc Lloyd (Chicago, IL).  Highly recommend you do not miss this one.

snacktime - undercurrent #11 side c

• December 24th, 2014

A bit behind schedule (no surprise to regular listeners to the podcast), but worth the wait (natch).  Last Thursday was the last Undercurrent show of the series to be recorded, and the release party from last month's tape (released in conjunction with Close/Far), featuring John Tamm-Buckle, Kevin Harris, NNN Cook, and Britches.  Charles Evans also delivered an acidic spoken dissertation/dissection of various subjects and sources, which was not used on the tape for reasons.  Accordingly, this digital Side C is all for him.  Full-on rethinged hoo-ha deluxe edition- AKA Charles Evans Vs. Jaded Evil Lambs.

BOX SETS and several other surprise goodies will also be available, along with plenty of always delicious Schlafly beer.  Drink all you want!  They'll make more!  (Please drive responsibly. Dumbass).  Entertainment for the evening will be live, not-to-be-recorded-or-put-on-tape-but-fantastic-and-not-to-be-missed-anyway performances by Cave Of Swords, Trauma Harness, Ghost Ice, and Skin Tags.

snacktime - undercurrent #4 bonus track: hess/cunningham duo

• November 18th, 2014

Way back in April, our monthly gig at the Tap Room commenced with a thoughtful set by Undercurrent honcho and prominent local skinsman Joe Hess and his string-oriented compatriot Alex Cunningham, which was in turns both sparse and layered; both meditative and ominously foreboding.  Grade A trippy shit, MAAAAAN. The set didn't make it onto the tape or the digital Side C in our feed for a few reasons, mainly because it was not part of the scheduled lineup, but an impromptu thing to fill a last minute cancellation, and was not recorded through Charlie Nehr's nice recording rig like the other sets.  David Bell did, however, catch it on his thingus- er, ahem- on his RECORDER, rather.  There are only two more Undercurrent shows left (this month's installment featuring Kevin Harris, John Tamm-Buckle, NNNathan Cook, Charles Evans, and Britches is in a scant two days!), so we're rolling out this and a few other choice morsels we've been sitting on, as we intend to go out with a bang!  Still plenty of surprises left, so make sure you're there to witness them!

• May 28th, 2014

It already seems like it has been ages and ages since NOISECAMP, even though we only powered down the Noisedonut™ and left Interfuse a mere 24 days ago.  Here is the first audio selection from the second iteration of our experimental foray into mass punitive sonic endurance and synchronistic audience participation.  This recording took place shortly before the effigy burn on Saturday, as our section of campground was still reeling and winding down from a massive "all comers" jam session.  Brad was holding it down on the cracklethumps when Annie poked her head into the dome investigating a rumored trumpet sighting in the vicinity.  The rest of the story kind of writes itself- another random joyous moment of experimentation, brought to you by adventurous hearts and dumb luck.  Stay tuned for more tales of NOISECAMP to come, there were many unexpected moments of discovery such as this, each one of them alone well worth the effort...

It's already been a busy year for Jaded Evil Lambs.  In addition to the work on this here podcast and all the UnderCurrent editing and arrangement and preparing for this year's iteration of Noisecamp at the regional Burning Man event Interfuse, our man Davelybob managed to squeeze in releasing a new collection of Jaded Evil Lambs recordings ("Left To Their Own Devices", available on, and somehow got roped into playing a unexpected series of shows that have been highly fruitful, resulting in some of his best knob twisting to date.  This tasty morsel is the most recent exhibition of audio oddities he unleashed, recorded on 4/4/2014 at the Livery Company by Brad Schumacher.  The fitting title "I Am A Scary Dinosaur" was decided on that evening shortly before the show when Dave's little buddy Zephyr uncovered the shocking truth that Dave is, in fact, a scary dinosaur.  More fossilized waveforms are to be had on 5/20 when Jaded Evil Lambs next throws down at Blank Space.  Be there.

snacktime - undercurrent #1 bonus track: the jerk

• February 27th, 2014

If you hadn't heard, Paradoxal Pterodactyl is participating in a special project in association with Wrong Division and called Undercurrent, a series of (FREE) monthly shows at the Schlafly Tap Room aimed at fostering communication and collaboration amongst the diverse artistic and musical scenes around St. Louis.  Each month, Joseph Hess curates a select lineup of the best experimental/noise/punk/hardcore/spoken word/comedy/etc/etc/etc performers in town, including some specially arranged collaborations that would likely never have happened otherwise.  Everything gets recorded, and then your favorite avian reptiles work their magic and edit it down to a funky mix that then will be released as a physical mixtape at the next month's show on professionally duplicated cassettes, again free for the first 100 people through the door.

The first installment of this series took place on January 30th, 2014.  The second concert and release of the mixtape from the first show is tonight.  To celebrate, here is a special bonus track, a performance by the duo of Jake Cohen and Jason LaChance (both members of the group Barely Free).  Billed for the evening as "The Jerk", their set was largely based around samples from the classic film of the same name starring Steve Martin and Bernadette Peters.  The audience loved it, but the record pressing plant rejected the first mix of the cassette due to copyright issues, and we had to replace their segment in the mix entirely and leave them off of the tape.

Luckily we have a podcast that doesn't mind a little grey area...  Here is the set, in its entirety, with love, from Paradoxal Pterodactyl to you.

Recorded and mixed by Charlie Nehr.

snacktime - going where gender isn’t

• January 27th, 2014

Genderqueer activist Andy Semler gave this platform address at the St. Louis Ethical Society on 11/11/2013, as part of National Transgender Awareness Week.  Recording taken from the Ethical Society podcast feed, and shared with our audience with Andy's gracious permission.  

"Genderqueer people are gaining increased visibility within a society that doesn't legally recognize our existence, but we are still a minority within a minority. This talk will explore the social, economic, and health aspects of living outside the gender binary in the USA. I will also share from my own "coming of gender" story, as we begin a broader dialog: What can the humanist community do to create a society where people of all genders flourish? 

Andy Semler is an active member of the LGBT Center of St Louis, the Metro Trans Umbrella Group, and the greater online community of non-binary trans and genderqueer folk everywhere."

snacktime - darin gray, tatsuya nakatani, & vanessa skantze

• November 7th, 2013

For the second portion (and main event) of the evening, Darin & Tatsuya were joined by butoh dancer Vanessa Skantze, who gave a truly beautiful, haunting, and mesmerizing performance (other adjectives used that evening also included "gut-wrenching," "grotesque," and "horrifying").  Butoh, if you didn't know, is a subversive, confrontational, and often painfully awkward style of dance that emerged in post-WWII Japan after a series of student riots.  Tom Hill's video of the performance is well worth watching:

As before, this recording was made at Lemp Neighborhood Arts center on 10/4/2012 by Dingus with his Zoom recording thingus, and lovingly presented in 320 kbps.  See you kids at the gong show.

snacktime - darin gray & tatsuya nakatani

• October 25th, 2013

It physically pained Dingus to sit on this snacktime so long, but we were saving it for a special occasion.  Legendary St. Louis bassist Darin Gray (Dazzling Killmen, Grand Ulena, On Fillmore, etc) and NYC-based percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani (as shining an example of a man living his dream as you are likely to ever meet) unleashed this rumbling, shuddering, improvisational maelstrom a little over a year ago (10/4/2012) at Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center.  Darin is currently on tour with the live production of the acclaimed public radio show Radiolab, and Tatsuya has a new record out and will be back at LNAC on 12/20 with his gong orchestra in tow.  Yes, GONG ORCHESTRA.  Put that shit on your calendar.

Recorded by Dingus, with his Zoom recording thingus.  Someone (Tom Hill, I think?) also posted video of this performance at:

snacktime - will to nothingness

• October 12th, 2012

Adolph Bunyan & The Nazi Lumberjacks is up in this piece!  This track was a live brap by HLIC (head lumberjack in charge) Davelybob, with special guest Ra3ndy (accomplished visual artist and board game designer), and will be featured on one of the two Bunyan albums that D-Bob is currently polishing for release (and has been for quite some time now, to be honest).  Once that feat is accomplished, the AB+TNL moniker will be shelved indefinitely in favor of his new project Jaded Evil Lambs, not to mention resolving the yin/yang dichotomy that comes with simultaneously being both Davelybob and Dingus.

[  whatever would our hero do without his mask?  #LOLCHAD  ;P  ]

UPDATE:  Those albums were eventually released under the name Jaded Evil Lambs.  (  The Bunyan sleeps tonight.  Heil Bunyan.

snacktime - charlie @ lemp 8.8.12

• October 10th, 2012

Your pal and ours, one Mr. Charlie Turner  (née moneybags) doing what he does best.  This one starts with a nice throbbing, pulsing drone, and ends up in unrelenting tormented spasms of howling glitchery.  Oh my goodness, indeed.

snacktime - time traveling porn

• October 8th, 2012

Michael McKay, president of the Skeptical Society of St. Louis, gives a talk on the implications of psychologist Daryl Bem's research into precognition.  Recorded by Dingus at the inaugural edition of SkeptiCamp St. Louis on August 18th, 2012, held at the St. Louis Ethical Society- one of numerous SkeptiCamp events put on this summer all over the US, and thus far the largest in attendance!  The Skeptical Society of St. Louis exists to  promote critical thinking, education, and the rigorous application of the scientific method to all aspects of life.  This podcast is firmly in support of those goals.  :)  The Society regularly meets up for workshops, picnics, and the popular "Skeptics in the Pub" events.

snacktime - the yellow five

• October 6th, 2012

There's a lot of nostalgia going on right now.  So here's one of Dingus's old favorites, the "Rock Star" EP by The Yellow Five.  It's peppy, catchy, sloppy fun circa 2002.  Because there's nothing more pure at heart than a high school ska band.


1.  My Life

2. Super Monkey Toenail Flesh

3. Same Old Line

4. Iron Curtain

5. Spontaneous Erection

(full disclosure, we re-EQed this a bit for the podcast)

snacktime - taka o’lueken, ajay khanna, mike pagano, & sean burk

• October 4th, 2012

This four way battle royale of analog persuasion was recorded by Dingus at  the "Spend an Evening With  Tapes" event on  3.14.2012 at Floating Laboratories, which is apparently no longer a place.   Dingus misses that joint already,  and wishes he  had spent more time there.
