FAUST


From Glass Onyon PR

Krautrock Legends faUSt to Tour North America Summer 2018!

Vagabondages in North America tour featuring founding members Jean-Hervé Péron and Werner 'Zappi' Diermaier



German Krautrock legends faUSt will be embarking on their Vagabondages in North America tour in July 2018! faUSt is an experimental rock band which came out of the Hamburg music scene in the late sixties. Formed in Wümme in 1971, faUSt were the first band to have the term “krautrock” applied to their music, and to the genre that ensued. German for “fist,” and also the protagonist of Goethe's eponymous play, faUSt were one of the first bands to use the recording studio as an instrument. Their live appearances were explosive (literally), as the pinball machines and jack-hammer legends detail.

Featuring founding member Jean-Hervé Péron, faUSt's North American tour begins on July 11th in Chicago. There will be line-up changes and guest additions at various points of the tour – founding member and drummer Werner 'Zappi' Diermaier will join the ensemble in Brooklyn on July 22 to the end of the tour. Also featured with the band is guitarist Amaury Cambuzat.

Hello faUSt friends in Canada and USA!

As for 1994! and for the fifth time now, faUSt will ride again the highways of your continent, up and down from Chicago/IL to Montreal/QC, across and back, from Brooklyn, NY to L.A., CA, spreading the good words of DadaKrautRock.

Here all musicians involved in the tour... well, almost all because we do have “last-minute guests”...

In the North East faUSt will be: Jean-Hervé Péron aka art-Errorist (voc, strings, wind and tools), Amaury Cambuzat (guit, voc), Tim Barnes (drums and sounds). In Chicago we will share the stage with Bobby Conn (guit, voc), Monica Boubou (voc, violin) and Josh Johannpeter (drums). In Brooklyn we will meet up with Braden Diotte (bass and sounds)... and Zappi, yeah! That's “ze big man wiz ze big nose!” on drums, voc, tools and metal.

But wait: on the West Coast faUSt will fuse with the German/Spanish/Croatian all female dada-punk trio Ernsthafte Angelegenheiten. Yes, just call them “E.A.” before your tongue get cramped.

Each day, each gig a new adventure, like vagabonds on tour... Rund ist schoen!!! - Jean-Hervé Péron

faUSt line-ups:

July 11 line-up:
Bobby Conn (vocals and guitarist), Monica BouBou (vocals and violin), Josh Johannpeter (drums), Amaury Cambuzat (guitar and vocals), Tim Barnes (drums and sounds), Jean-Hervé Péron ((vocals, strings, wind and tools)

VARIOUS ARTISTS - MAPPA ZAPPA

"Mappa Zappa" arrived at the U.M.Headquarters last week.
15 tracks by a superfine selection of artists.
Compiled by Andrew Greenaway.
As the album title hints, all the tracks were composed by Frank Zappa and carry the name of a place in the title.
The Todd Grubbs Group performs 'Transylvania Boogie', Gabba Zappa Hey! tackles 'Dead Girls Of London with an appropriate 'London Calling' intro, and so on and so on...

Beautiful stuff.
This album belongs in every Frank Zappa record collection.
Period.

MORGAN AGREN, JANEK GWIZDALA, DAEDELUS - PABLO DALI COMPUTER PROJECT

Morgan says:

This music was recorded during the making of Carl Kings documentary movie Conundrum. I was fortunate to have some great people coming down to Bell Sound Studio in Hollywood to join two days of open jam sessions and also sharing some fermented herring! The herring was the only critic moment of these two days. The rest was just great fun. Short snippets of the music can be heard and seen in the Conundrum movie, but much more was recorded. I kept all the pro tools sessions on a hard drive and opened them up recently and decided to bounce down a few sections. The musicians that took part in this was DAEDELUS (electronic mastermind and Ninja Tune/Brainfeeder/Warp records artist). JANEK GWIZDALA (bassist ace that has been heard with Wayne Krantz, Pat Metheny, Mike Stern, Marcus Miller and more) TOSIN ABASSI of Animals As Leaders also came down to join our adventure but this session is not mixed and ready yet. Will return to that later. Anyways, what you will hear on these three tracks is me together with Daedelus and Janek. A long open jam session straight down to "tape" without any overdubs. I did however edit some sections and added just a few sounds and a tribe man and his wise words on top of our recording. As Daedelus responded when I sent him my mixes "What a wonderful mess of everything".

Mixing experimental electronic sounds with a powerful bass and ditto drums.
Data has been added to the United Mutations Archives.

Out on the MoonJune Records label.



TRAVIS ORBIN PLAYS DR. ZOLTAN


Back in 2010, my friend Carl King released an insanely dense and highly musical album under the persona of Dr. Zoltan Øbelisk. After finishing drum tracking for my next solo EP, he challenged me to cover a song entitled "Upptäckten Av Ancient Alien Obviation Ruler Kit" (0:26). Being a fan of the record, I also suggested the tune "Join the War on Fun!" as a brief intro piece, for it is both bitchen and--ironically--fun to play. I 'Orbinated' them, rehearsed for a week, and what you see here is some of the hardest stuff I've ever had to track.



41POINT9


from Glass Onyon PR

Prog Ensemble 41POINT9 is premiering the first video and single from the band's forthcoming album “Mr. Astute Trousers.” “Confessions At Midnight” is the risqué new video that has been accepted into a service providing music to over 2500 strip clubs in the US making the single the first ever Prog Rock single and video to be accepted into this type of market. Yes, you heard that right, for the first time thanks to 41POINT9 you can hear Prog in a Strip Club. Gentlemen, you're welcome.

Says bassist Bob Madsen, “What started as an inside joke has actually become a pretty cool lil' tune. One evening the band was wondering why you never hear Prog in a Strip Club? That just seemed unfair. So 41POINT9 set out to rise to the challenge and correct this tragic wrong. Hence, 'Confessions At Midnight' was born. For the first time Progsters can now hear 'Prog In A Strip Club.' Gentlemen, yer welcome... This video tells the story of a burlesque dancer that falls in love with her Emcee and the sparks sure do fly! Enjoy!”

Superb album.

JESUS IS MY SON - TOUT A UNE FIN (MÊME L'AMOUR)

  • jesus is my son: tout a une fin (même l'amour)
        (2018, cd, bel, cheap satanism records)
Jesus Is My Son is the solo project of guitarist Grégory Duby.
"Tout A Une Fin (Même L'Amour)" (Everything Has An End (Even Love), is the fourth release by Jesus Is My Son. The album presents seven beautiful pieces.
Melancholic at times, experimental but without losing the melodic context, "Tout A Une Fin (Même L'Amour)" invites multiple listening sessions.

Very nice.

Here's a piece from his previous album.



MAPPA ZAPPA

There's a new Zappa-related album out on Cordelia Records: Zappa compositions performed by various bands and ensembles from around the world.
Compiled by Andrew Greenaway to coincide with Mick Zeuner's book.

As Andrew puts it :

This collection was inspired by my dear friend Amaretto Mick Zeuner, who is currently working on The Zappa Tour Atlas. It is hoped that this will be available in time for Zappanale in 2019. The tome is very much a labour of love ("by fans, for fans"), which this CD happily heralds.

Mick's cartographer chum Klaus Kühner is providing all of the necessary graphics for the book, while ‘my Cal Schenkel’, Antero Valério, has supplied the artwork for the CD.

THE RESIDENTS - I AM A RESIDENT


  • the residents: i am a resident
        (2018, cd, usa, mvd1330a)

October 2017, The Residents asked their fans to submit their version of a Residents' song. A selection of these were layered and edited into 'new' tracks by The Residents.
I was rather curious to hear the actual finished product so I was happy to receive the album earlier this week.

As a result, I have been playing "I Am A Resident" at least once a day.
Haunting, captivating, sounding familiar, soothing and strange at the same time.
I love it.

ORCHESTRA TOUT PUISSANT MARCEL DUCHAMP - SAUVAGE FORMES

L'Orchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp was one of the revelations of last year's Zappanale festival. They have just released a new album. On the Bongo Joe record label, in cooperation with Red Wig.

"Sauvage Formes" is the OTPMD's fourth album and it doesn't disappoint. Quite the contrary, actually.
Beautiful minimalistic layers (marimba, guitar and violin) serve as the basis for fragile songs.
Excellent.

JEAN-LUC FAFCHAMPS - H1KhH2WM

  • jean-luc fafchamps: H1KhH2WM (du seuil), a five-letter sufi word
        (2018, cd, bel, sub rosa)
Contemporary classical composer Jean-Luc Fafchamps started his Sufi Letters project in 2000. He wants to write and dedicate a composition to each letter (28) of the Arabic alphabet.
His latest five compositions materialized in "H1KhH2WM (du seuil), a five-letter sufi word", part three of the series.

Jean-Luc adds:
"I am drawing inspiration from the symbolic charts found in Sufi mysticism. Each Letter is a sonic meditation on the frontiers of conscience and the paradoxes of time.Today's word, Du seuil [From the threshold], is the third word to be released by Sub Rosa. It is a journey of sort through grief: stages of conscience, journey through hell, nocturnal anxieties, meditation, resilience. Do not worry too much though, for isn't it from the distance of death that one can shine the best light on life? Isn't all grief also a threshold ? "

Beautiful.

Out on Sub Rosa.

Here's a live version of an older Sufi Letter piece.



CHEER-ACCIDENT - FADES

Last year, the Skin Graft Records label re-released remastered versions of "Trading Balloons" and "Salad Days", early albums by Cheer-Accident.
So it comes as no surprise that the brand-new "Fades" album is also being released on Skin Graft Records.

The Cheer-Accident line-up has been changed numerous times. On "Fades" the core members are Jeff Libersher (guitar) and Thymme Jones (drums, vocal). They are, however, supported by a large and impressive group of guests.

Some tracks sound more 'pop' than what I expected, but that's not a bad thing. The variation in vocalists adds to the diversity.

Out on LP (black and colored vinyl) and on CD.
The CD has two bonus tracks !

AL DOUM & THE FARYDS

Fourth album by Al Doum & The Faryds : "Spirit Rejoin".



"Basically the Faryds absorb and re-elaborate with remarkable insights disparate elements and influences of certain Electric Jazz or Rock-Jazz-Blues of the ’70 (Miles Davis, Dr.John, Graham Bond, Jeremy Steig) and Spiritual Jazz (Sun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Don Cherry, Brother Ah), marrying them with the forceful instances of certain Afro-Free (Pyramids, Alkebu-Lan) and the more Freak-Jam plots typical of Space Rock."

THE SIMPLETONES - EINFACH

Founded by Johan De Smet and Rudy Cabie, The Simpletones project took a start in the late seventies. In their early years, all the compositions of the band consisted of maximum three different notes. A minimal music punk band.
In the eighties, the band morphed into a marching band, just to prove that there were no boundaries.
Later, Johan De Smet, as he got influenced by Frank Zappa, Edgar Varèse and Igor Stravinski, started composing classical music.
"Einfach" by The Simpletones is a fine example of this. The album features Peter Vermeersch, Bart Maris, Kristof Roseeuw and Tom Wouters (all from Flat Earth Society)

If you liked Hardy's previous (self-titled) album, you should definitely take a trip on this "NightTrain".

THE RESIDENTS - RMX

  • the residents: rmx
        (2018, cd, austria, klanggalerie gg276)
Around 2004, The Residents released a couple of remix / RMX albums. A couple of years after that, a number of remixes were made available on iTunes. That's the source for this album.

Klanggalerie:
http://klanggalerie.com/gg274

The Residents are fiddlers. Not fiddle players, just fiddlers. They like to play around and see different ways their songs could sound. They call this RMX. Some say RMX stands for "remix" but with The Residents, who knows? While the RMX concept is mostly associated with two album projects (The King and Eye RMX and WB:RMX), The Residents had also tinkered with individual songs. These were released as free streaming tracks on the band's official MySpace page (yes, they had one). In 2007 most of these tracks were collected in a compilation simply titled RMX, first made available on iTunes. Never before have this tunes been available on a physical release, so we are now glad to present you RMX as a CD including two previously unreleased rmx's! New cover artwork by Pore Know Graphics.

1. Icky Flix Theme 
2. Kaw-Liga RMX 
3. Blue Rosebuds RMX 
4. Teddy RMX 
5. Picnic In The Jungle RMX 
6. Jelly Jack - The Boneless Boy RMX
