Allen Ravenstine - Waiting For The Bomb

Allen Ravenstine - Waiting For The Bomb

Pere Ubu's Allen Ravenstine.Believed missing in action; back with a timely reminder of the importance of quality and swimming against the tide. Allen and I worked for several years together in the second coming of Pere Ubu before we both decided to quit at around the same time. I carried on playing and running this label; Allen became a commercial airline pilot and designed simulator stress tests for other airline pilots. Now retirement has brought him back to music and modular synthesis and in this unusual recording he arrives at a hybrid musical form that is more or less without precedent: discursive, digressive and disrupted by generic and emotional shifts; a music in which real-world sounds and real-world instruments occasionally argue with - or complement - the electronic current; there's agon here - and narrative. For a largely abstract and instrumental recording, that's a real achievement. These pieces and the interactions between them cumulatively capture an historical moment -...

Art Bears - Hopes and Fears

Art Bears - Hopes and Fears

The first Art Bears LP, mostly made by the band formerly known as Henry Cow and completed by Fred Frith, Chris Cutler and Dagmar Krause who went on, as '[Art Bears', to investigate this short song format further over the next two years, once Henry Cow had ceased to exist. Experimenting with the song form and the productive possibilities of the recording studio, this was hailed in its time (1978) as a landmark recording, and has been constantly in demand ever since. Therefore this new version, re-mastered by Bob Drake, and sounding for the first time like the original tapes. Repackaged. 1. On Suicide 1:27       2. The Dividing Line 4:11       3.

Biota - Fragment Of Balance

Biota - Fragment Of Balance

After 4 years of work on their 11th release for ReR, this extraordinary, reclusive, and highly individual audio-visual collective continues to evolve through the painstaking accumulation and disposition of a seemingly incompatible range of both exotic and familiar musical languages, instruments, techniques and studio manipulations - into one of the few genuinely original bands at work today. It took a long time to refine their unique process of composition to this level of ambiguity and depth, and newcomers will wonder how they strayed so far from orthodoxy and yet managed to retain a lucidity and transparency that is quite rare in contemporary music. Timeless, almost weightless - yet teeming with life, motion and complexity - this is a music that suggests an untroubled world in which nostalgia, tragedy and agon, while rudely present, remain subservient to deeper, calmer currents. Sic transit gloria mundi.More plainly, these are not conventional compositions, nor are they collective im...

It took a long time to refine their unique process of composition to this level of ambiguity and depth and newcomers will wonder how they strayed so far from orthodoxy and yet managed to retain a lucidity and transparency that is quite rare in contemporary music. The bullet points are that Biota is a unique project, defying genre with, like all such cult artists, a small but extremely dedicated public that, over the last 15 years has grown continuously as new listeners discover them. Founded in Colorado in the late 1970s, Biota's first recordings were released under the name of the Mnemonist Orchestr...

Bob Drake - Arx Pilosa

Bob Drake - Arx Pilosa

This is such a remarkable piece of work I don’t know where to begin. Anyone who liked the idea-rich, sonically breathtaking and compositionally daring pop music of the ‘60s, will recognise in these 20 perfectly crafted songs a similar mixture of pop-sensibility and radical innovation, but now recast in contemporary terms and not as pastiche or imitation. If you have hesitated thus far, now’s the time to enter the intensely musical world of the Drakian Academy, where unassuming virtuosity and state of the art studio practice are merely means to greater ends. I know we’ve all heard everything these days, but you haven’t heard this....

Bob Drake - Lawn Ornaments

Bob Drake - Lawn Ornaments

After Bob's Drive-In, which, in terms of production was quite restrained and minimal, Ornaments sets off in the opposite direction, piling up great car-crashes of overlapping fragments in a production that makes rococo look like shaker minimalism. Playing only drums, guitars, bass, banjo, fiddle, organ, trumpet and piano Bob herds tamed cataclysms of musical debris into the shapes of coherent - if episodic – songs, en route skipping through half a century of recording history. As to method well, you can’t beat a year of work. The CD comes with a beautifully illustrated booklet that includes all the song texts as well as eighteen commissioned drawings by the meticulous fine-artist Joe Mruk. Extraordinary music, intriguingly wrapped...Bob Drake:My 8th solo album. Since my previous album had a deliberately stripped-down production, the moment I finished it I wanted to do an "overproduced" album. This was the starting point and general direction for Lawn Ornaments. It is very dense, yet s...

Cassiber - The Cassiber Box 1982 - 1992 (6 CDs / DVD / Book)

Cassiber - The Cassiber Box 1982 - 1992 ...

In 1982 Cassiber (phonetically: ‘a message smuggled out of prison’) crashed like a locomotive into the Deutsche Neue Welle. Founded by Heiner Goebbels, Alfred Harth, Christoph Anders and Chris Cutler, Cassiber managed to fuse materials and attitudes drawn from experimental rock, fringe jazz, punk, pop, plunderphonics, improvisation, close structure and musique concrete with an energetic and complex form of studio (and then concert) composition that was unique in its combination of diverse experimental approaches to form with a risky, emotional and expressive mode of execution. Through a deep connection between instrumentation, form and topicality, their musical evolution tracked and anticipated the political and technological changes of their time. Thus, in the course of their 10 years of intermittent touring and 4 records they evolved significantly through the high stakes energy of the earlier releases into their later, more complex and composed, studio works (by which time they had b...

Cassiber - The Way It Is

Cassiber - The Way It Is

Niepublikowane nagrania zespołu Chrisa Cutlera i Heinera Goebbelsa, z lat 1982 - 1992. These are great recordings that paint the best – and most devil-take-the-hindmost – picture of this extraordinary, groundbreaking band. The sound is exemplary and the music constantly thinks around corners. Plus you have all the complexity and serendipity of live interaction and spontaneous rearrangement; you can hear the band is having a good time, even when some of the sounds seem to come out of nowhere. It’s a radical programme, all the more so for its shifts between organised noise, rhythmical intensity, lyricism, cultural debris and semantic complexity. OK I’m biased, but when I finished putting this together it was like finishing a new Cassiber CD and, arguably, the best of them. You really get a picture of what the group was made of. There’s also the pleasure of guests Dietmar Diesner and Rene Lussier on two tracks. This release will be included in the Cassiber Box, which is almost there but ...

Charles Hayward - One Big Atom

Charles Hayward - One Big Atom

Charles’ first new solo CD for nine years, and he hasn’t been resting on his laurels; here are new ideas and a consolidation of the story to date, all plaited up into a fully articulated musical manifesto, characterised by virtuosity, soul, complexity, drive and attention to fine detail…not only that, but it’s also very nicely recorded. In stretched song form, this sounds for all the world like a well-drilled ensemble, with Charles singing, playing, and augmenting his sometimes pile-driving, sometimes loom-like kit with electronics, melodica, ziz zag and swirl (no I don’t know what the last 2 are either). As drummers go, Charles has to be one of the best we’ve got, carving his own way without giving any quarter. And he can write a neat refrain, even if riding a wave of tonal and rhythmic complexity....

Fred was just starting out on his long career as a solo improviser when he made this double LP, and still using the now long retired Charles Fletcher custom double-neck guitar (one fretted, one fretless) and the Burns Black Bison, as well as a pilot's throat mike, a violin and (at one venue) the house piano.

Między muzyką a chaosem. Historyczne już nagrania szalonego duetu Fred Frith-John Zorn, mistrzów free-jazzu i improwizacji. Za pomocą instrumentów jak i rzeczy instrumentopodobnych oraz "kaseciaka" i klawisza Casio, panowie wyczarowali iście psychodeliczny dialog. Nagrania pochodzą z 1983 i 1985 roku z Nowego Jorku i stanowią drugą część cyklu "Art of Memory". Sam Frith opisał je jako "dziwactwa z Zornem wczesnych lat osiemdziesiątych".What makes guitarist Fred Frith and saxophonist/bird caller John Zorn such a great improv team is that their musical personalities are so different. No matter how hellaciously abrasive the noises he makes, Frith always sounds like a happy guy having fun. No matter how mellifluous the noises he makes (and they are rarely very mellifluous at all), Zorn always sounds like an angry guy who's out for revenge. Both of them also have a sense of humor, which is a good thing when your musical modus operandi involves hitting your guitar with stuff and doing unnatu...

Jon Rose & Chris Abrahams - Peggy

Jon Rose & Chris Abrahams - Peggy

Number 12 in the ReR Jon Rose series. Jon Rose and Chris Abrahams (of The Necks), after four decades of being parts of other projects, finally got around to recording as a duo. Jon uses a number of violins, including the bird - a specially made tenor hardanger fiddle with sympathetic strings; his tunings are non-standard, and create complex microtonal dissonances with the standard keyboard. Abrahams is unfazed and somehow manages to make the conversation coherent; they’re still speaking one language – probably because these are both virtuosi and they’ve been around the block a few times. So this is not easy music; the simple problems aren’t stimulating, so these negotiations begin at masterclass level. Though pitch and counterpoint are the main topics, the third extended piece pushes timbral exploration to the edge; piano and violin are typecast as ‘classical’ but here they sound more electronic and industrial. Probably not for everybody, but the real innovators seldom are....

Released by the band (Jean-Herve Peron, Zappi Diermier Geraldine Swayne [all from Faust], Geoff Leigh, Yumi Hara and Chris Cutler) – a good quality recording of a concert (edited) from the 2016 RIO Festival in Carmaux. Neither flesh nor fish nor good red herring, this is an occasionally fierce, occasionally dreamlike unfolding of doldrums, tides and maelstroms filling 42 shared minutes with events, music, noise – and things that just happen, sometimes all at once. So it’s not like a conventional concert, I’d say. At times it sounds like a band, and at times it doesn’t – but, I’d like to say, it’s 40 minutes spent in interesting company. The CD comes with the unique score (a new one is made for every concert immediately beforehand), which is made up of a sparse chain of words, drawings, indications and occasional pitches, sellotaped tog...

Lloyd Swanton - Ambon (2CD)

Lloyd Swanton - Ambon (2CD)

Solowa płyta basisty The Necks!In 1940, 27-year-old Stuart Swanton enlisted at Melbourne Town Hall, and the following year, was sent to defend Ambon in Dutch East Indies from Japanese invasion. Totally inadequate in numbers, the force was overwhelmed. Stuart spent the rest of the conflict in a Japanese prison camp with the second-highest death rate of any in WWII; the day before war ended, he died from beri-beri, caused by acute vitamin deficiency. At grave personal risk, he'd kept a coded diary that survived. Fifteen years later, his nephew Lloyd was born. Stuart had been gifted musically; Lloyd became a professional musician, now best-known as bassist with The Necks. But he also has a passionate interest in the history of the war in which his uncle fought and died, describing the Ambon expedition as "a scandalous part of our history". Now, he says, he is glad to have "got off my chest" this moving tribute. Ambon is a suite of pieces performed by an expanded version of Swanton's regul...

Można jednak rzec, że to minimalizm w swej podstawowej postaci.Another remarkable performance from a group that has no peer and belongs to no genre or movement. Minimal in an essential and structural sense, they succeed where more formal attempts founder, in re-forming subjective time in a way that is genuinely gripping and as far from theoretical as great interpreters can get. Applying extraordinary technique in a remarkably discrete way, they here transfigure a single chord over a long duration, imperceptibly arriving far from their starting place meanwhile all values are subsumed into, and work only at the service of, a music that seems almost unplayed, emergent, inevitable. After all the statements are made there is a resurgence here of the sublime, in the last place you'd expect it, and ...

Nowa płyta The Necks, premiera: 17.08.2018 The new NECKS studio record (there’s one every couple of years) will be officially released on August 17th. It’s another multi-layered classic and I won’t spoil it for you by trying to describe it. Though it’s their 20th, they still have a sack of fresh ideas - and even, on this record, a surprise! - as they further test the BIG structural idea that they have been slowly unravelling from the beginning. Patience, temperament, quiet virtuosity, concentration, economy - and a unique understanding of experienced time - confirm the Necks as one of today's few truly original bands. This record is a labyrinth; each listening different and each exposing further layers.  Don’t think twice. Australia’s greatest cult band, The Necks, has a new piece to offer the world this summer, entitled “Body”. Different again to all previous Necks albums (20 in total), the band has chosen 10 words and phrases that summarize the four richly contrasting episodes of ...

One of the greatest bands in the world, said the New York Times; A post-jazz, post-rock, post-everything sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals, according to The Guardian; Fifty years after Kind of Blue, the new music I would find it hardest to do without is that produced by The Necks, circumlocutes Richard Williams. No one has so far even attempted to copy them since, what they do is so unique, anyone venturing on that ground would be both exposed and be competing with perfection. For their part, they just get on quietly making one great record after another. And here are 8 of their best packed into in a sturdy box: Hanging Gardens, Drive By, The Boys, Aether, Chemist, Silverwater, Townsville and Mindset. Numbered Edition of 1000. ...

Necks, The - Open

Necks, The - Open

Siedemnasty album legendarnego australijskiego tria istniejącego od 1989 roku. OPEN will be the Necks’ 17th album, and the 11th released by ReR. Here the band returns to the territory for which it is best known: a single, glacially mutating, long-form piece that runs for a little over an hour. The previous record, “Mindset”, said bassist Lloyd Swanton, “reached some pretty intense levels at times, and though we never overtly discussed it, I think that on Open, by contrast, all three of us were taken by the idea of working in a field of significant stillness. At least, after a couple of days’ recording, it became clear that the music was leading us in this direction.” Feeding into the ground plan are floating arco harmonics, minimalist funk, iterative piano figures, subliminal and liminal pulses, twittering electronics and at one point an arco bass choir. It is unequivocally a studio work, with layer laid on layer, while still, miraculously, remaining architecturally spare."(Displays th...

Necks, The - Silverwater

Necks, The - Silverwater

Zawsze inaczej, ale jednak w odcieniach futurystycznego jazzu. W swej długoletniej działalności, od 1989 roku The Necks nagrali szesnaście (!) albumów. "Silverwater" z 2009 r. to jeden ponadgodzinny utwór, który ewoluuje, przeobraża się i... ucieka słowu pisanemu jak szybko zmieniająca się pogoda. Trzeba na własnych uszach przekonać się czym jest ten album Muzycy:Chris AbrahamsLloyd SwantonTony Buck Reviews: BBC Music (Jon Lusk): The Necks are among the world?s most consistently great exponents of improvised music. While their last album Townesville (2007) was an inspired example of what they do onstage, Silverwater (named after one of Sydney?s industrial suburbs, synonymous with its jail) returns them to the studio, and finds them on typically fine form.Although they created it spontaneously, much of the appeal of this single 67-minute piece lies in the way individual parts have been edited into and out of the mix as it unfolds in an ever-changing series of overlapping tableaux.

Zawsze inaczej - w swej długoletniej działalności, od 1989 roku The Necks nagrali szesnaście (!) albumów.  Niniejszy album jest soundtrackiem do australijskiego filmu "The Boys" (1998), a dla zespołu jest to złamanie konwencji długich kompozycji.Sound-track to the prize-winning movie. The Necks break with convention here and put several shorter pieces on one CD. All gems and all pared back to the reiterative imperfection that is the Necks' unique and glorious signature. This a band that seems to be coming into its golden age. Prodigious music and highly recommended.Tracklista:1 The Boys I 4:272 He Led Them Into The World 10:203 Headlights 10:104 The Boys II 3:155 The Sleep Of Champions 6:326 Fife And Drum 10:197 The Boys III 3:42...

Necks, The - Townsville

Necks, The - Townsville

Zawsze inaczej - w swej długoletniej działalności, od 1989 roku The Necks nagrali szesnaście (!) albumów.The Necks in quiet mood recorded at a concert recording in Townsville, Thuringowa, Northern Queensland. Though many Necks' pieces open with - or eventually arrive at - some discernable groove, Townsville just floats in a state of suspension from beginning to end. It's like watching the ocean as wave follows wave follows wave: each the same; each different; assymetric. Bassist Lloyd Swanton who, on this occasion, provides the motif that set Townsville running says he had had no idea where it would lead: 'One of the deep joys for me' he said, 'after twenty years of making music with this group, is that we're still completely unable to predict where our pieces will go.'01 Townsville 53:41...

Necks, The - Vertigo

Necks, The - Vertigo

Nowa płyta The Necks, premiera: 09.10.2015Już jest, wysyłamy przedpremierowo!The release of a new Necks album is always news. This is our 12th to date - and their 18th. While most ensembles are driven by personalities, the Necks are powered by an idea. A very large and simple idea - which now seems completely obvious…. but only because the Necks thought of it and made it work. Now their pleasure (and ours) is sequentially to re-imagine and explore that idea – the prime directive of which seems to be to be that each unfolding step and every passing detail of any performance be allowed to evolve organically out of the musical conditions established at its moment of departure. In other words, we are in the territory of chaos and catastrophe theory; of hurricanes and butterfly wings… And, since one can never step twice into the same river, each beginning has led to wildly unpredictable and variant outcomes; and imperceptibly: you never hear the changes until somehow they have already happe...
