NEW ALBUM BY PIERRE VERVLOESEM / THE KINGS OF BELGIUM


For their Kings Of Belgium project, Pierre Vervloesem and Gil Mortio invite a drummer to participate in an improvised recording session.

Their first recording, with Al Battor (Brussels session), resulted in "Unchained Melodies" in 2009.
In 2010, the second session, with Morgan Ågren (Stockholm session), gave us the "Très Fort" album.

Their latest endeavour features Didier Fontaine on the drums. It got recorded in Finland in studio Kïppu. The result is being released as "Quality Streets".

Switching guitars and bass between tracks both Pierre and Gil were in an energetic mood. And it sounds like Didier even pushed them a bit further.

Unpredictable. Limitless. Beautiful !

VARIOUS ARTISTS - THE HANGOVER CURE - VOL 4 - TIME TO CHILL

Adding bits and pieces to the huge Zappa puzzle, here's "The Hangover Cure, Volume 4", an Australian sampler that included The Gotan Project with 'Chunga's Revenge'.

"Time To Chill".
Indeed.

Here's a live version of the song :


VARIOUS ARTISTS - LOST MEAT - 100% ZAPPA RARENESS


I finally added the info for "Lost Meat" to the United Mutations Archives.
An excellent opportunity to give this fine album another listen.

All compositions by Frank Zappa, but the goal was to record songs that aren't part of the official FZ discography.
Familiar names, but also some artists that I've never heard of.
It's hard to pick favorite tracks but I really like Z.E.R.O.'s version of 'Grunion Run'. It takes you back to the sixties. 
Fuchsprellen's contemporary take on 'If I Could Only Be Your Love Again' sounds great as well. Ruben & The Jets rule !
And then there's The Vegetarians with 'Touch Me There', from the Shankar album.
And Gabba Zappa Hey!, and Fred Händl (hilarious !). And many more...

Another excellent compilation on the Cordelia Records label.
Tip to the hat to Andrew Greenaway and Alan Jenkins !

JUNE TYSON


Modern Harmonic is about to release an album that will put June Tyson in the spotlight !


From Modern Harmonic:

THE VOICE OF AFROFUTURISTIC SCIENCE NON-FICTION!

Undoubtedly the most sublime constellation in the Sun Ra cosmos, June Tyson’s voice is the perfect guide through one of the most challenging and varied musical legacies ever to be encountered. Capable of strong, fierce, and emotive vocalizations as well as intricate weavings, her voice transcends genre. This first ever collection affirming June Tyson’s unassailable gravity in Sun Ra’s realm features previously unissued cuts and includes a full color zine-style insert featuring rare photos and extensive liner notes!

The strong, powerful and fiercely feminine voice of Sun Ra’s Arkestra for decades was the strong, sassy and spacey June Tyson. As Sun Ra’s closest companion throughout his time on Earth, she represented Afrofuturism as boldly and powerfully as her Saturnic leader. He the king of Afrofuturism and she the queen. The zine style insert is externally a replica of one of June’s personal items, her “Dream Book”; open the composition pad to unveil stunning unseen photos courtesy of June’s daughters and a powerful set of notes from Cat Celebreze.

Finally the Princess Leia of avant-garde jazz gets her due. Mastered by Joe Lizzi, cut at Cohearent Audio by Kevin Gray and pressed on stocking gold vinyl at Third Man.

Also available on CD.


THE WATTS - DECOHERENCE

Yumi Hara isn't afraid of the musical experiment or adventure.

She can be heard in The Artaud Beats, in the Lindsay Cooper Songbook (performed at Zappanale in 2018!) or in her collaborations with Hugh Hopper, Geoff Leigh, Daevid Allen and Chris Cutler.

One of Yumi Hara's most recent projects is called The Watts.
The ensemble features Yumi Hara (piano, voice, objects), Tim Hodgkinson (lap steel guitar) and Chris Cutler (drums, percussion).

For "Decoherence", live recordings of improvised music (from Cafe OTO and from the RIO Festival) were edited and mixed into four tracks.
Texts are cited and are surrounded by soundscapes, resulting in an intense yet intimate listening session.

Available from:
http://www.yumiharacawkwell.co.uk/



DECOHERENCE

Decohere and
All those
Weirdness problems
Disappear
... Instead of paradoxes:
Moons unlooked at,
Half-dead Cats in boxes...
Leaving what's already
There
Already there
So
De-Co-Here

(Chris Cutler)

ZAPPA COLORING BOOK

WIDMER - STAUSS - DUOS


  • widmer - stauss: duos
        (2019, cd, switzerland, unit records)

"Duos" got recorded December 2018 and features Jacques Widmer on the drums and Markus Stauss on saxes and flute.
This is improvised music. It needs a certain mindset. It needs your full attention.

I've listened to the album a couple of times the last week and I really enjoyed it.
Full of surprises, interacting and responding to each other, Markus Stauss and Jacques Widmer will make you part of their world.

One of the things that I like about this album is that Markus Stauss is able to mix free jazz phrasing with more reserved melodic playing, while Jacques Widmer both follows and directs.
I love it.

SNARKY PUPPY


Snarky Puppy is still touring.
Check them out !

We saw them in Eindhoven and had a great time.
Utrecht wasn't an option as it had sold out immediately and the Antwerp gig was at 'De Roma', not my favorite venue for a big event.

Fortunately, Snarky Puppy does offer soundboard recordings of most of their shows in their store.
In the Live Snarky section.
Listening to these three shows will be a nice start of my Sunday...

It looks like they shuffled their setlist every night. Nice.

GÖRAN KLINGHAGEN - HÄLSINGLAND

  • göran klinghagen: hälsingland - by the lake beside the trees
        (2019, cd, sweden, country & eastern)
Swedish jazz guitar player and composer Göran Klinghagen has already been mentioned on the United Mutations blog as he contributed to Bengt Berger's impressive "Beches Brew Big" album.

On his latest album, Göran has used several Swedish folk songs as a basis for his compositions, arranged for his jazz sextet. The result is very enjoyable. There is a certain calmness, a certain peace surrounding all the tracks. I guess the subtitle, "By The Lake Beside The Trees" fits the package perfectly.
Featuring Göran Klinghagen (guitar), Fola Dada (vocals), Markus Harm (sax, flute), Joo Kraus (trumpet, electronics), Veit Hübner (bass), and Torsten Krill (drums and percussion).

KEITH EMERSON MUSIC TRANSCRIPTIONS BOOK


from GlassOnyon PR

The Keith Emerson Estate Announces the Release of the ‘Selections From Emerson Plays Emerson and Other Works’ Music Transcriptions Book – OUT NOW!

The Keith Emerson Estate is pleased to announce the completion and release of the music transcriptions book that Keith Emerson had been approving at the time of his passing.

The 25 transcriptions were created by a group of fans of the late composer’s work, and began as just the compositions on the ‘Emerson Plays Emerson’ album, before the book was expanded to include other works including “Piano Concerto No 1.”

The Emerson Estate would like to thank Jean Casavant and Gianfelice Riccardi for leading the groups of fans preparing these transcriptions. The Emerson Estate has commissioned its own quality control of the transcriptions and approved this book.

The book features a foreword adapted from Emerson’s emails about the project and a previously unpublished poem about composing which gives us an insight into Emerson’s mind.

Part of the late Keith Emerson’s foreword reads “So imagine my delight when news reached me that people had felt moved enough by my compositions to create transcriptions of them! Hopefully the “Emerson Plays Emerson” transcriptions will, in some small way, be useful to the next generation of composers to play and practice upon. I am humbled.”

KMFDM - DON'T BLOW YOUR TOP - 12"

In an attempt to complete the data on KMFDM's 'Don't Blow Your Top' (a track that includes fragments of lyrics of several FZ tunes), here's the picture of the 12" that got released in 1988 on the German Cash Beat record label. (the same 12" also got released in the UK and in the US, on different labels).
This version lasts 5 minutes (compared to the 3-minute version on the album).

This is the track that got put on the "KMFDM - Extra Volume 1" album (and on 7") in 2008.

At least five different Zappa tunes contribute lyrics to 'Don't Blow Your Top': 'Son Of Suzy Creamcheese', 'I'm The Slime', 'Dirty Love', 'The Orange County Lumber Truck' and 'Bow Tie Daddy'.
Released around the same time as the "KMFDM - Extra Volume 1" collection, that also included this track.

ANOTHER RESIDENTS UPDATE


God in 3 Persons MoMA Premiere!

the project will premiere at the Museum of Modern Art in New York!
Save the date: January 24 and 25 2020!


RESIDENTS UPDATE


In support of the IndIegogo campaign for God In 3 Persons
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-residents-god-in-3-persons-live--4/x/8549999#/

A 1972 7" in a new, wooden box.
One copy & Sold, of course, but pretty neat.


Released in the holidays during the innocent era of 1972, Santa Dog, a two record set of 45 rpm discs, is the holy grail of Residents’ collectibles. Due to a manufacturing malfunction during the cover printing process, only 400 of the original pressing of 500 were actually produced; of the remaining hundred pairs of records, only seventeen are currently preserved in The Cryptic Corporation Archive. Earlier this year, artist Dustin Edwards volunteered to personally produce hand made wooden boxes for these long orphaned discs, and now Cryptic has donated one of these deluxe box sets to The Residents’ God in 3 Persons Indiegogo campaign as a crowdfunding premium. On the rare occasion that an original Santa Dog is offered for sale, the price has gone as high as $5000, but this special edition can be yours for only $1000 - but you have to act fast. ONE ONLY!!! Make your bids here: https://igg.me/at/G3P

THESE ARE ORIGINAL SANTA DOG PRESSINGS FROM 1972 - only the exquisite hand made box is new. (Offer also includes a certificate of authenticity.)

JOE DENINZON & STRATOSPHEERIUS


A new track from Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius !

This song explores the "impostor syndrome" and how too many people that should have more confidence don't have enough, while many of the wrong people, especially people in power have way too much confidence.
