MIX #12 – OH LONG LIVE THE LOVING PEST – Cough Park Compact Discs


COUGH PARK COMPACT DISCS is a submission based mix system collaborative which is created 2x a year. A great deal of the audio is a result of the COUGH PARK HOTLINE. (347) 601-4266 where people call and leave messages about dreams, ghost stories, music, rants and recipes for better living. 

Every special physical DISC has unique limited edition packaging by Jason & Henry McLean  For a while we only made the DISCS available by physically going to COUGH PARK at GPS Location: 40.67451, -73.99984 in person but we have since set up this bandcamp page. Any funds generated from sales or merch will go to postal fees to send out actual discs.

Thus far DISCS have been given by hand to Thurston Moore, RZA, Gary Panter, John Giorno, John Cale, Mark Mothersbaugh, Phill Niblock, Jeff Koons, Laurie Anderson, Martin Rev, Aaron Cometbus, Eric Wareheim, George Takei (Sulu)  and others. So you are in good company! We strive to make COUGH PARK COMPACT DISCS for people we respect.

There is something for everyone big and small at COUGH PARK COMPACT DISCS!

Thanks for doing what you do.




The new mix is a bit of a feedback loop of sorts. Or multiple feedback loops. There are people calling in response to coughpark bicycles that have been placed around in two countries with the hotline number but we don’t really know what country people are calling from because they don’t remember what their numbers are anymore. We are on one global bicycle riding into the void of memory. There are also people calling in from a large show that was up in Stratford, Ontario that featured a MASSIVE olde radio that played 11 hours of coughpark discs continuously. You’ll notice that one guy at the show actually parrots the Fox in Sox poem from disc5. You can see the olde time radio in the background of this picture from this article. https://whitehotmagazine.com/articles/ross-bell-at-gallery-stratford/5496 The UFO will pick up the radio soon and add this mix to the unit.
That being said, we live in remarkable times and this mix is guaranteed to make you forget your troubles.

We have also started an instagram for collective visual art efforts. https://www.instagram.com/coughpark/

This mix was a bit like doing some impossible wedding seat planning where a lot of people may not always socialize together or even speak the same language, or are from the same solar system. In the end everyone nods and has a really good time though and there is a COSMIC UNION and it all flows like some EZ STREET CHEEZE. 🧀
Some great new people and olde favorites. In these dour times I hope this lifts people out of the emotional muck we are swimming in.
The cover art was a combo of Jason McLean and Margaux Smith. Limited Edition MERCH is here.
A video was created by apaull specifically for his submission March Song.

Well it’s been a strange six months. Probably the strangest in our lives. But whatever. I am sick of talking about it and of junk breaking in my apartment and vermin taking over.

Everyone needs a vacation globally. This mix is even more evidence of the collective societal unconscious that flows like a river from the mountains with fresh clean mind water. Maybe it is a sort of vacation.
Unfortunately, there is a level of angst, sickness and paranoia in this mix, but it IS what it IS and somehow I’m not surprised. Coughpark tries to be apolitical, but given what just happened in the US of A the inferences are unavoidable. Apologies to our Canadian Brothers!!! America still makes really decent reality TV!!!
More than a few people have called in via random flyers which Jason has left everywhere. So I’d like to tip a hat to those individuals that took a chance to tell their stories.
Inexplicably,  Godfrey Bigbird has some lucky voicemail where an automated bot calls him incessantly from an Indian call center, only the scammers don’t know it  so they just say hello?! hello?! over and over. He has like an hour of these delicious calls and gets more everyday. SO WE ARE HARNESSING THE BROKEN BOTS FOR OUR OWN AMUSEMENT AT COUGHPARK.
The future will be a wonderful place if people would let you just dream.
