A part-time cabal. A fusion of assemblage art, hurly-burly, bedlam, disquiet and poetry. Indie music, art, writing and treasure. A podcast of Real Fiction featuring music from the This Isn't Just a Cult constellation of artists and stories of regret, elation, mysticism, headaches, heartaches, harpoons and merit badges. Perfect for every situation. Except four.

This Isn't Just a Cult is an art collective with a focus on collaboration and creativity. It is often absurd. It can be a comedy or a parody. It is often abstract. It is poetry and fiction. It is the bubbles of a creative community.

    Song Dismantler - Bosky Rumbluffer

    Bosky Rumbluffer doesn't spend a great deal of time looking back. As a massively prolific artist, he is constantly working on the next project. We were honored to catch him in a nostalgic mood to discuss the recording of his classic anthem Eat Your Soup and Shut the F**k Up. It turns out to be quite the epic story of hallucinogenic skiing, puppet masters, broken bones and a chance encounter with a musical genius.

    This episode was written, produced and narrated by Björ6n Oranj. Bosky Rumbluffer and Michi also provided narration. In addition to Eat Your Soup and Shut the F**k Up, this episode features a bonus track by Bosky Rumbluffer from his greatest hits collection Buffet!: Someone Said I Love You.

    The Long Lightning pt. 8

    Part 8 of The Long Lightning by Erik Blagsvedt as narrated by Björ6n Oranj.

    All apologies. After the last installment of The Long Lightning, we fully planned to get on it and release pt. 8 just a few weeks later. Then, well....the exorbitant pina colada moonshake Valium tammy bin pamplemousse vodka house spread eager totalities and miscreants violated as they will from time to time and you know how that can go in a world mislead by time and erosion be-speckled by warrant furnace sniffle. Despite the waterfall cranks and distilled eagles we are back with more from the abstract mind of The Blagsvedt.

    The soundscape for this episode was by Dorje Lamb. Check out his latest release 0 at Bandcamp.

    This episode was produced, edited and by Björ6n Oranj.

Unlike anything else

The pieces are then Reassembled in a pleasing way that even a casual art fan could enjoy. Strap in and enjoy.
