Joe Gore: Selected Performances [AUDIO]

Here are audio clips of some favorite performances. For videos with me playing in real time, go here.

The next four clips are from Clubbo, the massive “music fiction” project (AKA “hoax”) I created with Elise Malmberg — and a perfect example of how megalomaniacal the project became. We started by fabricating a pretty pop song alleging to be from 1965. Then we documented its death via ever-worse cover versions: Wimpy ’70s  singer/songwriter. Obnoxious ’80s dance pop. Putrid TV commercial. This is just one of the dozens of bogus stories we created. More here.

Recorded live with no overdubs. (Thank you, looping pedal!)
