about

“Believe me, it’s hard for me to listen to also.”
– Dave Soldier

Needlejuice is pleased to announce the release of Dave Soldier’s The People’s Choice Music. The album is available in 2 fittingly bizarre LP variants: Pretty Ugly (baby blue/dookie brown swirl) and Wally Wheel (yellow/blue pinwheel). The album will also be available on CD and cassette after being out of print for over two decades. All formats will feature remastered audio and brand-new artwork.

The People’s Choice Music is the brainchild of Russian conceptual artists Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid. In the 90s, the duo conducted a series of polls to determine what aspects were liked and disliked in art. With this data, the two constructed “most wanted” and “most unwanted” paintings based on the results. Experimental musician Dave Soldier was enlisted to compose a musical extension of the project, resulting in The Most Wanted Song and The Most Unwanted Song. The Most Wanted Song features smooth guitar work by In Living Color guitarist Vernon Reid, while The Most Unwanted Song is a cacophony of bagpipes, children celebrating the holidays, and an opera singer rapping about the Old West.
