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...

Fred Frith - Live in Japan

Fred Frith - Live in Japan

Concert recordings made at various venues in Japan in 1981 and released by Recommended Records Japan in 1982 in an edition of 1000. Out of print since, though highly sought after, it has now been transferred and remastered by Tom Dimuzio for this official reissue. 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. Some great music - and an historic and important document....

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....

Skeleton Crew - Learn To Talk / Country of Blinds (2CD)

Skeleton Crew - Learn To Talk / Country ...

With 10 extra tracks. A reissue of two timeless classics. On the first CD it's just Fred Frith and Tom Cora, the legendary two man crew who somehow - in real time, not with endless overdubs - managed to play all their own instruments (cello, bass, electric guitar, violin) and sing - as well as, between them, constructing the drum parts - dislocated into elements, with each of them having bits of the kit. This made for some fantastic, and normally unplayable, parts - most drummers having only one brain. No one sounded like Skeleton Crew, ever. Devious, complicated, brutally simple, always unexpected, turning on a dime, this was not just a pop band then, but a tocsin, a call to arms - and a catalogue of invention that is remains breathtaking today. On the second album, the inspired addition of Zeena Parkins (keyboards, accordion, more drums, more vocals) led to some of the best music of the decade. The recording was rawer, more urgent, the songs stand out in sharp relief; every part esse...

Necks, The - Body

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 ...

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 -...

Wydanie w kopercie foliowej z okładką 4-stronową.CD packaged in plastic sleeve with double page printed booklet. No jewel case, no tray.Limited Edition. 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...

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...

Slap Happy & Henry Cow - Desperate Strai...

(Henry Cow Definitive Reissue series No. 4) In 1974, Henry Cow took a sabbatical while it considered what to do next. SlappHappy meanwhile was planning its second record for Virgin. One night the trio showed up at the quartet's door and proposed that the two groups make the second Slapphappy LP together. So incompatible - Slapphappy was making eccentric pop songs and Henry Cow was composing complex epic instrumentals - so how could a merger fail? Henry Cow jumped at the chance and Desperate Straights -was the result. It's still a gem to my ears, and now at last it's possible to release it, properly re-mastered (by Bob Drake), its sound closer to the original tapes even than our earlier Nimbus vinyl pressing. Great songs, great arrangements, great performances and Dagmar on top of her form... real people in a room together, playing straight to tape. Those were the days..

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...

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.

The second and last release by this most exquisite and eccentric of groups, who hardly touched the world of working bands, and whose existence was tenuous, flickering, mythological – and yet who managed, stealthily, to find its way in time to legendary status – rather like Duchamp’s fountain - by leaving an indelible trace in recorded form of their verifiable existence. There’s been nothing like them before or since. Though, if Captain Beefheart had been Erik Satie... Late 70's French duo with a serious Erik Satie fixation. Hector Zazou and Joseph Racaille both on keys and vocals plus some guitars, reeds and violins by guesting musicians. Lots of short & quirky songs with funny titles in the true spirit of their model. Best can be described as chansons in chamber settings but done with a rock feel, unique and in fact pretty indescribable. And georgeous. Totaly French. If you're not careful enough, you may end up falling in love with it... Traite is the second (and final) album...

After 19 years, the return of the Peter Blegvad Trio, in supernal form and now a quintet with Karen Mantler and Bob Drake. Recorded over 10 days at studio Midi-Pyrenees the old way: sitting in a room, working on arrangements, rehearsing a bit and then quickly recording to capture every nuance and interaction: your front seat in our hi-tech sitting room. The sound is the best so far, according to our friends - and the playing is organically elastic, giving form to a glittering chain of lapidary songs crafted by a master of the form.

An unusual record, mostly recorded in the early ‘60s with Ra, Marshall Allen, John Gilmore, James Jacson, Nimrod Hunt and Thea Barbara that explores stripped back forms and colour combinations - very far from jazz - and includes the extraordinary Conversation Of J.P. for piano and percussion. This and the opening track - probably recorded in 1970 - an 18-minute Moog solo, made just after Ra had newly acquired the instrument and was putting it through its paces, would make this an essential release in the Sun Ra canon – even without the rest of this excellent CD. Nice cover too, as usual....

Sun Ra And His Omniverse Jet-Set Arkestr...

Two related classic Saturn LP reissues on a single CD, both recorded at the Detroit Jazz Centre in 1980 and 1981 respectively. They share an excellent sound quality and great playing -- there's a classic version of 'Rocket No.9' and plenty of otherworldly Moog and electronic keyboards -- it's up there with Ra's best on record. 'Rocket' excepted, all the pieces are original to these LPs and don't appear elsewhere, though the first track of Purple Star Zone is heard again at the end, with another name (exactly as it was on the 2 LPs), so it was clearly much liked by the boss. These were 10-14 piece bands, featuring the regulars, including June Tyson, and some visiting guests. The first LP features prominent electric guitar (not identified in the personnel list on the CD, but every listing I've seen for these LPs is different; this one should be fairly accurate in general, since the promoter helped to get the CD together). A fine release, touched with greatness and with a good sound. Come...

This sounds like a studio recording, carefully thought out - most of the compositions appear only on this record (apart from versions of Nature's God and Space is the Place), and include a chain of very interesting accompanied /interpolated) spoken texts: There is a Change in the Air, The Antique Blacks, The ridiculous "I" and the Cosmos "Me" - as well as a very long and scary coda to Space is the Place. Ra plays Rocksichord and Moog throughout (solo on track 7 and at the end of track 8). Theatrical and political; this is a fascinating release....

In 1971 Sun Ra and the full Arkestra of the time went to Egypt. Three Saturn LPs were released memorialising this visit: Horizon was the last (it has also been known as Starwatchers and Sun Ra in Egypt Vol.2). It's a fine recording of a classic band - in great shape here -and comprises a big chunk of the now legendary Balloon Theatre concert (there's more on the companion CD Nidhamu). The first three tracks (what was side 1 of the LP) form a continuous uncut block, and feature a lot of Ra's all-hell-let-loose Moog soloing, some (borrowed)Tiger Organ, and a great version of Discipline 2. Side 2 kicks off with an instrumental version of Enlightment, (restored in its place from the original concert. It was not on the original LP) segueing slowly into Space is the Place - followed by drum orchestra, more solo Moog (bloops, hoovers, whistles, concords taking off, insect hordes.) which leads to a first lurching, then wild, Discipline 8.

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....

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.

Pointillistic improvisations by the experts. A conservative but beautifully recorded live concert performance from the Angelika festival, 2011.Pauline Oliveros V-Accordion. Roscoe Mitchell alto & soprano saxophone, flute. John Tilbury piano. Wadada Leo Smith trumpet. music by Pauline Oliveros, Roscoe Mitchell, John Tilbury, Wadada Leo Smith. “In 2011 Pauline Oliveros, Roscoe Mitchell, John Tilbury and Wadada Leo Smith opened the AngelicA Festival with 3 days of concerts… they performed solos and duets (Pauline and Roscoe; John and Wadada), and finally, for the first time ever, these 4 distinct musical voices performed together, as a quartet… Over time AngelicA (which is 26 years old) has always tried to bring together different worlds, even ones that were very far apart from each other (although distance is nothing but an illusion if it is not prescribed by cultural boundaries): through the creative forces that come alive in these encounters, if possible, to re-discover spaces for ...

Steve MacLean - Ordinary Objects and Other Distractions

Steve MacLean - Ordinary Objects and Oth...

In this episode, a number of short recordings of household objects and curious instruments become the core thematic material for a range of exquisitely conceived and realised pieces in which the recordings are shaped, stretched, tuned, combined and otherwise manipulated before being folded into a variety of musical structures with additional elements or parts added. Much use is made of rhythms derived from gravity – that is, dropping and bouncing - embedded into microtonal, poly-rhythmic and deeply engaging structures. Steve has been a hard sell in some ways, like Jon Rose, Biota and Bob Drake. But we think that, in the end, quality will out. ...

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...

Fred Frith - Propaganda

Fred Frith - Propaganda

Written for theatre in 1987 using a host of avian and mammalian voices, snippets of unidentified musical material and electroacoustic noise- sculpting, as well as invented and real instruments played by Fred. This was a hard time and the mood is intense, lean and not cheerful, though there are some gruesomely cheery inserts. There’s no fat but a lot of meat here....

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...
