MIX14 – POWER AND DUST – 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.




This mix seems a bit mystical or it gets mystical in the second half which is OK considering everything that’s happening these days. You can never get exhausted about the mystical. Maybe the world needs a little coughpark 14 at this point. Or a little POWER AND DUST anyway.

There are a few people calling from a remarkable place in NYC called Freeman’s Alley downtown. The alley is covered in tags and stickers. Due to coughpark flyers and sneakers left there people proceeded to describe what’s in front of their eyes.  It’s just right. https://www.instagram.com/p/Ctk_6xFuKBu/

A London Ontario legend named Dan Dan the Radio Man called in to talk about his new invention. There are some great street recordings of a clog dancer, a street preacher and some heavy duty improvements they were doing on the BQE right next to coughpark in the middle of the night. The city is just trying to make it nicer for everyone!

There is some great new merch on the bandcamp including some somewhat used cologne once owned by an airline pilot. Actually the new physical coughpark14 discs may have a slight waft of that long haul flight into JFK from Tokyo as a bonus.  There is also  a new Flyer Satchel where you can organize your flyers by theme and find everything instantly. As far as we know there are no Flyer Satchels available for sale anywhere!




Think PEACE, 🎃🎁📀💿🔦🗝️



Here’s lucky number 13. I don’t believe in luck or numbers or prisons of the mind. I do believe in people’s ability to survive and tell stories. Not sure what this title is about but I consider the people on this disc to be heroes in their own ways. We gotta look towards the heroes always in these weird weird times.

This disc contains some things like people looking for baby daddies, a call from a laundromat in Tennessee via a flyer that was probably left there years ago, a memorial call, a recipe call, some dreams, a meditation on the solar system, and finally a call about THE VOID.

Enjoy and keep being YOU!

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.
