This is the Blorp Esette Gazette. Thirteen years have gone by since this project was first imagined, but it is here now, the LAFMS quarterly audio magazine. This is the first issue, filled with many varied sounds from many varied sources.

In 1977, Ace Farren Ford, one of the founding members of the Los Angeles Free Music Society released a various artists compilation album on the LAFMS label called Blorp Esette, a vinyl lp. In 1980 he released Blorp Esette Volume 2, a double lp. In 1999 his own label Ace & Duce teamed with the Transparency label to reissue these lps on cd and added 2 cds of previously unreleased contributions. In 2011 the 4 cd set was remastered by Ju Suk Reet Meate of Smegma and re-released.

In 2000 Mr. Ford came up with the concept of an audio magazine which would feature contributions of various member of LAFMS, past and present and would be a way of keeping it active. Now some 13 years later it has become the Blorp Esette Gazette, a quarterly annual audio magazine, the first edition of this to be released this fall on the Ace & Duce / Transparency label. This first volume features contributions by Keith Mitchell (Moniter, Mazzy Star), Moris Tepper (Captain Beefheart), Kraig Grady, David Cotner, Smegma, Electric Bill Robinson, Michael Intriere & Anna Homler, the Tenses, Dennis Duck, Juan Gomez, the Mystery Band, Frank Bedal, Larry Easter (Linn County) & more, with cover art by Ace Farren Ford and Ju Suk Reet Meate. The album will ship during September 2013.
