DAVID FIRST

David Firstʼs musical life is filled with opposites and extremes. At the age of twenty he played guitar with renowned avant-jazz pianist Cecil Taylor in a legendary Carnegie Hall concert. Two years after that he was creating electronic music at Princeton University (an LP of which was released in January 2014 on Dais Records) and leading a Mummerʼs String Band in Philadelphia parades. He has played in raucous drunken bar bands and in pin-drop quiet concert halls with classical ensembles. As a composer First has created everything from finely crafted pop songs to long, severely minimalist drone-works. His performances often find him sitting trance-like without seeming to move a muscle, unless he is playing with his recently re-formed psychedelic punk band, Notekillers.
MIDNIGHT MINES

This self-styled ‘spontaneous music ensemble’ eschew formal song-writing for laying down improvised bursts of music during their recording sessions. The resulting live jams are subsequently chopped, screwed and assembled into tracks, filtered through their love of obscure 60s garage no-hopers, outsider folk, The Fall, fried dub, early industrial and other esoteric concerns. Baron Saturday and Private Sorrow swap instruments and splice together tracks built out of old drum machines, feedback, 2-note riffs, atonal harmonies, transistor organs and repetitive mantras. They recently released their first LP ‘If You Can’t Find A Partner Use A Wooden Chair’ on their own Mystery Plane imprint, following 3 cassette compilations of basement experiments.
PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS PIGS

It’s a pretty perfect balance of obnoxiousness, ridiculousness, intensity and theatrics, and somewhere within that spectrum is where our music sits too. » reckons Matthew Baty, whose vein-popping onstage performances and cathartic bellow form a primary ingredient of the Newcastle five-piece’s devastating live shows. « We truly love the emotionally dark bands that we are in (Ommadon, Blown Out, Khunnt). Pigs however provided an opportunity to do something different, something that is fun with a different kind of intensity.
PIERRE BERTHET + RIE NAKAJIMA

Rie Nakajima and Pierre Berthet have been creating various ways to vibrate things so that their acoustic shadows dance around: invisible air volumes that reshape constantly, move in the space, enter in the most secret places and inside ourselves. A way to get closer to things inherent spirits is to listen to them. Eventually encouraging them to produce sounds and resonate by various means: to hit, caress, shake, beat, scrape, scratch, claw, boil, clap, rattle, rock, throw, move, magnetize, clamp, cook, pinch, galvanize, motorize, bow, blow, pluck, heath up, let flow, freeze, drop, drip, connect, roll, mix, extend, sing…

Regards.

Alain Bolle
