The Time Will Be 2:13 Precisely…

John Bisset & Ivor Kallin celebrate something or other, are happy, but occasionally do I'm not sure what.

213TV is Bisset & Kallin's demented absurdist/musical/scatological TV show on the web. Running to an unbelievable 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 seasons, it manages to stay consistently odd. [NSFW: occasional puerile humour, songs about poop, hard to explain away at the desk.]

Individually, they record experimental/improvised music, plus some green screen multitracks. But it's okay, because they involve leeks and John Dowland, surf style.

Outstanding. I now have a new favourite thing. For anyone who wants in some small way to support them, it looks like John Bisset has some stuff on Bandcamp.

Loving the embarrassed-looking metal horns at the end of 'we love leeks'.

That Dowland piece was top - a vibe rather like the 'classical statues dressed as hipsters' nanomeme last week. Would buy an album of early music in thee moderne style.
