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....

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 ...

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...

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...

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....

Biota - The Biota Box (6 CD Box)

Biota - The Biota Box (6 CD Box)

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. 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...

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...

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. Joan 3:06       4. Maze 5:06       5. In Two Minds 8:58       6. Terrain 3:49       7. The Tube 3:05       8. The Dance 5:09       9. Pirate Song 1:28       10. Labyrinth 2:15       11.

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 -...
