Chris Porter - Screaming from the Cosmos (reel)
One of the great joys of the 1970s hi-fi era was wowing your friends with the newest in stereo technology. Seriously… Look at Playboy magazines of the era and find stereo reviews of esoteric equipment you have never contemplated before. We imagine that those were heady times of consumption of mass quantities or Acapulco Gold while listening to the Allman Brothers on your reel-to-reel tape deck. We have partnered up with our friends at Dead Media Tapes to make a super limited edition run of reel-to-reel tapes for our man Chris Porter's debut album, "Screaming from the Cosmos" in order for you to recreate our fantastical premise. This unique artifact is extremely limited to fifteen copies worldwide, and most of those have already sold. We've set aside a small portion for you, though! Don't pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece that will befuddle your friends and confound your loved ones.
(Original release description)
Chris Porter's first live performance release, "Screaming from the Cosmos," might be misnamed. Instead of screaming, Porter rolls into his performance, a little closer to the cosmos with the help of some pre-show merriment. Oh yes, folks, he did inhale. Pot, for Porter, is like Tang for astronauts or steroids for Barry Bonds a performance-enhancing drug that helps him get the job done each and every time.
Porter, best known to many audiences for his top three finish on NBC's competitive comedy show ''Last Comic Standing,'' delivers top notch, relatable humor with the candor and comfort of a college buddy. Before a psychedelic backdrop in his hometown, he belies his stoner persona with whip smart, staunchly apolitical jokes that cannily hit on life's highs and lows and definitely its absurdities. Porter seems as at-home on stage as he might be on your couch as he saunters through his wry observations on everything from Axe body spray to the bad manners of the elderly and the ridiculous world of nightclubs. Minute by minute, Porter tells people jokes of the highest order.
