Lorin Cutts talks with stalwart UFO researcher, Los Angeles based Ann Druffel – author of ‘The Tujunga Canyon Contacts’ and ‘How To Defend Yourself Against Alien Abductions’. Ann was one of the first UFO researchers to link the alien abduction phenomenon with similar folkloric tales of other cultures and believes that so called ‘alien’ abductions are perhaps not what they appear to be… and can also be averted. Lorin discusses her work, her beliefs and how perhaps the phenomenon fits in with a Christian/religious worldview (Ann is an Irish/American Catholic). They also discuss the historic case of Reverend Bailey who not only managed to end decades long ‘alien’ intrusions into his life, but also managed to capture several photographs of the visitors with a Polaroid camera given to him by Ann. These have been scientifically analyzed and are some of the most convincing photographs ever taken.
Lorin also talks with fellow Global Radio Alliance co-host and ufology cheerleader, Chase Kloetzke. Chase has some of the best credentials in the business, having spent 20 years at the Department of Defense designing specialist training programs for the US Military… and then becoming Star Team Manager at MUFON (The Mutual UFO Network) where she had first hand experience investigating some of the best cases reported to MUFON. This lead to Chase and her team even having a Close Encounter of the Third Kind themselves – something she talks candidly about on the show. They also discuss the controversial Bigelow Aerospace deal with MUFON and the potential cover-up of important data regarding the UFO subject.. and also about ‘The Resistance’ – the new campaign Lorin and Chase have started to draw attention to the often unfair treatment the UFO subject gets in the mainstream media… and to advocate the use of alternative media outlets to distribute quality information regarding paranormal research.

High Strangeness episode 9 was first broadcast at 8pm EST, Sunday 18th November at http://www.kgraradio.com
I am currently working on an ep of frequency healing /response technology within musical pieces. Unbelieveably, I’ve pretty much gotten to choose my first choice of vocalists for this.
I met Gordon Anderson through a mutual interest in UFOs. Gordon is co-founder of seminal 90s band, The Beta Band and amazing cult noughties band, The Aliens – and he gladly allowed me to have a go at blending his unique vocal harmonies with some of my frequency healing project that I’ve been working on a good while. I have also enlisted the amazing vocal talents of Dexy Valentine from The Magic Wands… so two of my absolute favorite vocalists. Excited! Hope to have this finished early in 2013 and it should be released on mmrmmr music via IODA.

A misspent youth as a singer/bass player in various punk bands from the age of 14 brought cider-fuelled dreams of rock n roll stardom. That was until an opportunity came along to move to the big smoke and work as a tape-operator and later as an engineer in a London recording studio. It was in this studio that Lorin fell in love with the developing music technology of the day. The studio had been set up in a Camden attic by The Eurythmics to record their ‘Sweet Dreams’ LP, and it was here that he learned how to mix in the dead of night by sneakily digging out master tapes and making his own mixes of tracks.
The studio was also host to a couple of very early drum machines/toys built by legendary Kraftwerk producer Conny Plank. Lorin says, ‘it seems almost dreamlike that my first exposure to electronic music making was in these amazing circumstances. I never truly appreciated how lucky I was at the time. I don’t have many regrets, but if I had one it would be turning down the chance to buy Dave Stewart’s ‘typewriter’ drum machine (the one that appears in the ‘Sweet Dreams’ video) for 50 quid. I simply didn’t have the money’. During this time Lorin worked as tape-operator/apprentice and learned how many records were made. He even appeared on a few and is particularly proud of making crowd noises in a supposed strip club alongside Johnny Thunders on his ‘Copy Cats’ LP.
Stints as engineer, studio manager and vocalist in various indie bands followed until in 1991 when a reluctant visit to Trade club in London showed Lorin how the other side of the music obsessed public lived. This music was just as dark, dirty and rebellious as punk, but without all the hideous hours spent hung over in the back of a transit van on a tour of the East Midlands.
Trade became a weekly scheduled stop and using skills learned during his grueling studio experience, he was soon making tracks for legendary Trade DJs Tony de Vit and Tall Paul as well as those at brand new club-on-the-block DTPM. The following year saw the debut releases of original tracks and remixes on fledgling labels Hooj Choons, Positiva, and Jumpin’ and Pumpin’, and of course numerous obligatory white labels.
A seven year publishing deal was signed in 1994 with Polygram / London Records, but by 1996 he’d become tired of the vacuous place that the music industry and club scene can become. Disillusioned and exhausted, Lorin moved once more and became a West Country recluse, listening to Strange Cargo albums with his sheep dogs in Somerset.
By 2004 Lorin had once again became excited by new developments in music technology, and a growing love of the breaks scene in the UK tempted him out of exile. DJ dates followed in places as far afield as Russia, Europe, and the USA. Exposure to a barrage of amazing new music prompted the launch of music label and multi-media company – mmrmmr. Now based in Portland, Oregon, Lorin spends his time between writing, producing and remixing music, researching UFO’s and frequency healing, and working as a freelance writer.
Lorin is currently working with frequency healing / response and incorporating this technology into his music production.
Lorin is also co-founder and executive partner of KGRA and presents Saturday Night Sounds and High Strangeness radio shows there.
