Posted in Uncategorized on juin 30, 2011 by debloque

Please find here a biography and also some links you can click on.

Sometimes a shitty band comes to town and they need support from a local
act so they can get their money’s worth. In 2006, two highly respectable
dudes got together to serve that purpose and PNEU was born. After a just
little over 300 shows around Europe (France, UK, Germany…) and North
America (US, Canada) opening for the likes of No Means No, Envy, Oxbow,
Converge… and their first album « Pince Monseigneur », a split 10″ (with
Nervous Kid) and a double split (with Marvin, Papier Tigre, Electric
Electric) ; A lot of people started to recognize them on the street as
celebrities of the Post – math – acid- noise – would you have a blanket
by any chance? – Trash scene.

This is very easily understandable due to the fact that PNEU is made for
the masses, 25 minutes of essential groove and energy for your listening
pleasure only.
The reason why no other band lets them use their gear is because the
French duo beats the shit of what used to be called drums and guitars. I
hear you coming with your Ligthning Bolt and Hella, so what? PNEU has a
powerful melodic approach that will instantly appeal to both
connoisseurs of the MUSIC and even kids making their way through
teenage-hood.

For the past three years, PNEU has toured a lot with some friends and by
themselves. They recently made a quick stop to lay down the tracks to
their second album in Salem (US) with Kurt Ballou from Converge. Godcity
studios suit PNEU perfectly and the X tracks make one hell of a album,
wonderfully aggressive and extremely inventive, « Highway to Health » is
definitely the shut the fuck up record of the new decade. Behold, ladies
and gentlemen ».

I hope to hear from you ASAP.

Regards.

BOOKING OFFER: PETER JAMES TAYLOR

Posted in Uncategorized on juin 29, 2011 by debloque
Hi,

I'm booking some dates for Peter James Taylor in September. He's available
between 9th and 17th September.

Please read carefully the long text that follows and also visit:
http://soundcloud.com/peterjtaylor
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhtz9p6xNGc
http://peterjamestaylor.com

Taylor is a man trying to create the darkest sounding guitar music on
record. Composing music specifically for electric guitar. Live shows
either consist of musicians getting together on the day and creating music
from his compositions or practised performances. “MATE” Written for 6
guitars and drums is a discordant nightmare in the vein of Glenn Branca on
acid. Guitars are tuned into octaves and placed into chorded sections.
These dark and sometimes epic compositions take no prisoners in there
mission to melt your mind. Expect a dense wall of noise that will leave
you short of breath and wanting more. Letting several guest musicians
loose to interpret his compositions and featuring members of action beat,
house of john player and hired muscle. This is truly a musician and
composer showing a mature, tense sound beyond his past experiences. The
12” vinyl on Fortissimo records comes with both CDR and digital download
meaning three formats for nearly the price of one. These 8 tracks lasting
over 40 minutes are a sonic assault on the senses, which will not leave
you disappointed.
and here is a recent review.......
“This is a pretty astounding sounding record. Taking time off from his
main band Action Beat, PJT has assembled a contemporary UK “guitar army”
in the vein of ol’ Noisy bastard Glenn Branca’s NY outfit. ‘Mate’ is the
result. A taut, wiry collision of furious and mighty monotone guitar
thrash & some seriously insane Steve Shelley-esque drum abuse. This
incredibly fine record reminds you of what it is like to get caught right
in the eye of a prime SY maelstrom or the culmination of an Action Beat
curated aural tornado. This is rock music on a very pure, electrifying
plain. Forceful, intelligent, relentless, euphoric & very loud. But with
the source ingredients being relatively minimal, you’re getting all the
uncluttered detail. Just galloping, driving drums & walls of fierce
guitars that slice up and down the side of your face like the most brutal
biting wind. Put this vicious fucker on and you’ll get forced right slam
into the back of your sofa, such is the velocity & fury of this very
righteous rock. Power on boys. Stellar line-up also includes memebers of
House of John Player & Hired Muscle!” 5/5 Norman
Peter J Taylor’s name might make him sound like he’s a columnist for a
broadsheet paper but listen to a mere split second of his music and you’ll
realise that he’s actually a monstrous nutter who’s created an sick
instrumental album of intense, punky guitar driven compositions that sound
like they’re the backing track to a b-movie car chase. He used to be in
some band I’ve never heard of, but who cares about that, care about this.

His album ‘Mate’ is in parts simply white noise and this alone should make
it at least a bit awful. But it’s not awful at all. It’s good. Great in
fact. I put it on and listened to the whole thing straight through. It’s
so manic and tense in nature, it doesn’t let up or let go. It’s akin to a
refreshing citrus slap round the face that barks “Stop listening to Mark
Lanegan you twat.” (Just me then?) It makes me remember how much raucous
fun music can be; and Taylor sounds like he’s having so much fun. I just
want to pick up a guitar join in.

There are also some great little intricacies to be found buried in these
wailing eight tracks, but I don’t think for a minute any of it was done
consciously. ‘Mate’ is like a Kandinsky painting: insane, nonsensical,
alluring; hinting at control and yet overall its odd parts make a
beautiful whole. It’s also a big-bastard sonic onslaught of electric death
too, of course.

The self released album ‘Mate’ is available for a mere £4 on his bandcamp
site but if you’re a tight-fisted, miser, skinflint, cheapskate tight wad,
then you can just stream the thing and rock out in front of your computer
like it’s 2011. But remember: Your ears are for life, not just for
Christmas.

BOOKING OFFER: MIND OVER MIRRORS

Posted in Uncategorized on juin 21, 2011 by debloque

Hi,

 

I’m booking some dates for MIND OVER MIRRORS in
September.

Open dates are on: 2nd, 4th nad 15th September.

 

 

Please read this review and also listen to these
beautiful tracks:

 

http://soundcloud.com/mindovermirrors

 

Excellent album of head-melting drone and Kosmische made
on an Indian Harmonium and recorded to tape – available on vinyl only in an
edition of 450 copies for the world* “Digitalis introduce the Mind Over Mirrors
alias of Jaime Fennelly (Acid Birds/Peeesseye/Manpack Variant) with the endless
Harmonium drone topologies of ‘The Voice Rolling’. Five years since his
previous solo outing, Jaime expresses timelessly primal yet elevated intentions
over seven densely layered vistas of raga-scaling heights and hypnotically
seductive bass undulation. All the sounds were sourced from a medium-sized
Indian Harmonium and then processed electronically via tape echo, harmonizer
and other guitar pedals, diffusing the instrument’s potential into a a grittily
textured and dense spectrum of uniquely frictional drone spirits. This
celestial flight departs at ‘Brickfelder’, ascending gradually through
harmonized clouds of metallic-fragranced tones, almost bitter and gritty, but
calcifying into something quite naturally majestic.

 

As XXJFG eulogised, next track ‘You Ain’t Reeling’
reveals itself like “Some drumless-techno-titan stalking the sand blasted
bazaars of a near future”, amping the Harmonium to excoriating, almost
face-melting levels of grandeur, before drowning in the abyssal subsidence of
‘Coaling’ and being ecstatically extruded through the labyrinthine repetition
of ‘Barely Spun’. After a pause to flip over, ‘Point Hammond’ rolls into view,
tracing a long, linear path across the plains of primitive American blues to the
amp worship of Sunn 0))) and Barn Owl’s narrowed-eye gaze, following the course
of shimmering, coppery overtones through the landscape to the delta of ‘Round,
Around’, and bathing in a more joyous flow of tones like the expressions of the
Sacred Heart singers reverberating a mass of ecstasy to the Ganges. ‘The Voice
Rolling’ is overflowing with emotion that you don’t normally find in many
drone/Kosmische records, and a visceral affirmation of life itself.” – Boomkat

 

I would like to hear from you asap.

BOOKING OFFER: LUGANO FELL

Posted in Uncategorized on juin 19, 2011 by debloque

Dear all,
>
> I’m booking some dates in the Autumn for LUGANO FELL.
>
> Please read this biography and also click on this link:
> http://www.baskaru.com/lugano_fell.htm
>
>
>
> Lugano Fell is the solo project of James Taylor, a founding member of UK
> tech house duo Swayzak. After 12 years spent perfecting the pumping house
> music of Swayzak (whose seminal album « Snowboarding in Argentina » has been
> reissued in 2009), Taylor felt like trying something totally different,
> quieter, and more detail-focused.
>
>
>
> From the noisy (i.e. loud) and pulsating soundworld of Swayzak, Taylor has
> sliced and spliced his way to a noisy (i.e. sound-based) and textural
> soundworld. The music of Lugano Fell is made of unrelated sounds, found
> sounds, prepared sounds, even sounds made with actual musical instruments
> or salvaged from the media. These sounds – a part of which is treated
> while others are left clearly identifiable – are arranged into short
> pieces filled with images and action, but too concise and sharply edited
> to be described as cinematic.
>
> This record features diverse moods (walls of sound samples,
> esthetically-sophisticated vacant spaces, a duet between a stuttering CD
> player and a hesitating acoustic guitar). This music draws from sound
> collage, experimental ambient electronica, noise music, and ready-mades.
> It doesn’t force itself upon you; it’s there, physically present, and
> suddenly it isn’t anymore. And it weaves sense like a spider weaves its
> web, away from prying eyes, hiding behind flurries of sounds.
>
> I hope to hear from you soon.
