PATTY WATERS
Patty Waters (born March 11, 1946) is a jazz vocalist best known for her free jazz recordings in the 1960s for the ESP-Disk label.
Waters was born in Iowa and started singing semi-professionally in high school. After school, she sang for the Jerry Gray Hotel Jazz Band. Her family moved to Denver and she started listening to Billie Holiday, whose life and singing had a profound influence on her.[1]
In the early 1960s she followed the recommendation of friends to move to New York. Albert Ayler heard her in a dining club and introduced her to Bernard Stollman,[2] the owner of the experimental jazz label ESP-Disk. Her most influential albums, Sings (1965) and College Tour (1966) were made for this label.
Her best known recording is a nearly fourteen minute version of the traditional song « Black Is the Colour (Of My True Love’s Hair) » (from Sings), which is rendered in a haunting, anguished wail.[3]
In the late 1960s, she spent time in Europe and then left the music world to raise her son (born in 1969) in California. Almost 30 years later she recorded the album Love Songs in 1996 and began performing in public again. This included reunion concerts with pianist Burton Greene at two music festivals in May 2003: Visions Festival in New York and Le Weekend in Stirling.[2][4]
In 2004 she released You Thrill Me: A Musical Odyssey, a collection of rare and unissued recordings from the years 1962–1979. ESP-Disk reissued Sings and College Tour on a single CD (The Complete ESP-Disk Recordings) in 2006.

ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE
California-based experimental musician Brian Pyle (also of Starving Weirdos and RV Paintings) uses the name Ensemble Economique for his solo ventures, which range from dark, Shamanic drone to mystical, echo-heavy psych rock to shadow-dwelling goth/darkwave. He initiated the project with At the Foot of Nameless Roads, an album of clattering, occasionally noisy soundscapes on the Digitalis label in 2008. The label also released No GPS, a limited companion CD-R containing the project’s earliest recordings. Two years later, two very different LPs bearing the name Ensemble Economique were released: the expansive, cinematic Standing Still, Facing Forward (Amish Records) and the intense, tribal psychedelia of Psychical (Not Not Fun). 2011’s Crossing the Pass, By Torchlight (Dekorder) added chilling horror-soundtrack synth textures and shuddering electronic beats, resulting in the project’s most direct, cohesive work to date. The year also saw the release of an eerie, jarring cassette called The Vastness Is Bearable Only Through Love on Agents of Chaos.

DUDS
Hailing from Manchester DUDS are a tight, self-contained four-piece who combine sharp bursts of rhythmical energy with intelligent musicianship. Their lyrics comment on the human condition and arbitrary, sometimes strange scenarios or themes. The band has somehow managed to knock out three EPs in a year; “NLP” and “Unfit for Work” and lastly, “Wet Reduction”, which was recorded at Manchester’s celebrated Kraak Gallery. Stylistically, think James Chance and Beefheart, with a dash of post-punk thrown in.

ALEN ILIJIC
tudied film music with Amit Sen at City of Westminster College in London,UK, and composition, orchestration, electronic music and sound engineering at the Faculty of Music in Belgrade, Serbia, with Dr. Srđ an Hofman. Since 1996 Ilijic is a member of
Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI), USA, and memeber of The International Society for Contemporary Music (ISCM), Austria.
During his studies in London as a singer-songwriter and guitarist, Alen Ilijic formed the band Zealot in 1993. With its innovative sound, Zealot had a big impact on the British underground scene during the nineties.

KYLA BROX
Kyla’s voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer’s art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. Whether fronting the mighty Kyla Brox Band, or harnessing undiluted soul power in a duo with musical and life partner Danny Blomeley, Kyla Brox is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.

TARAB
Melbourne based tarab/eamon sprod explores re-contextualised collecte sounds and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt, junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things, decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply
documenting a given site, tarab is interested in a direct engagement with our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads and heightened awareness.

LYDIA LUNCH + WEASEL WALTER (USA)
Lydia Lunch is passionate, confrontational and bold. Whether attacking the patriarchy and their pornographic war mongering, turning the sexual into the political or whispering a love song to the broken hearted, her fierce energy and rapid fire delivery lend testament to her warrior nature.
Queen of No Wave, muse of The Cinema of Transgression, writer, musician, poet, spoken word artist and photographer, she has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up. Brooklyn’s own Akashic Books have published her anthology Will Work For Drugs, as well as her outrageous memoir of sexual insanity Paradoxia, A Predator’s Diary, which has been translated into seven languages. She performs in a variety of mediums, is a rabid collaborator and continues to release new music as well as re-issuing classic material such as her spoken word indictment against patriarchal idiocy, The Conspiracy of Women through Nicolas Jaar’s label Other People.
Weasel Walter (first name, last name) is a Brooklyn, New York based multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser best known for leading the seminal punk-jazz/no-wave/brutal-prog band The Flying Luttenbachers between 1991 and 2007 on 16 full-length releases.
Seamlessly uniting the intensity and abstraction of improvised music with the nihilist aesthetics of extreme rock forms, Walter is committed to violent momentum, idiomatic unpredictability and rapid articulation.
Expert in the underground music scene of the late 1970’s, Walter has lectured at various Universities including Bard, San Francisco Art Institute, University of Chicago in Paris, and penned the introduction for Marc Masters book NO WAVE, seen as the definitive history of the New York movement from which Lydia Lunch emerged in 1977 with her first group Teenage Jesus and the Jerks.

CANTANAC DAGAR
Cantenac Dagar is a French duo using run-of-the-mill materials – or in their case: a banjo, a beatbox and a tape-player – to create a hypnotic and noisy ratatouille. Their creators, Stéphane Barascud and Aymeric Hainaux, are also the driving force behind the very fine Isola Records label.

I look forward to hearing from you asap.

All the best.

RHAPSOLDYA
They have failed trying uproot us… »
This phrase, the title of their first album, sums up the band’s identity. Calling things into question, thumbing their noses to the standardization of the world around us. The five musicians have a groovy rock sound bearing undeniably modern lyrics in the Breton language. The furious energetic flow demonstrates the engagement and rebelliousness of their revolutionary writing. Rhapsoldya is in full force with their most powerful weapon : their music !

NIGHT VIPER
Night Viper are a hot rockin’ heavy metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden
featuring past and present members of Church Of Misery, Horisont,
Miasmal and Lethal Steele. Combining the classic metal spirit of Judas
Priest with the riff intensity of Metallica, along with a big handful
of rock ‘n’ roll attitude, they’ve proven to be the breath of fresh
air heavy metal have been waiting for. Since their first show in 2014,
they’ve released a single and their first full length album both
through Svart Records, and have toured Europe three times and played
highlight sets at festivals like Roadburn, Muskelrock, and Heavy Days
In Doom Town, and played two sold-out nights in a row supporting
Graveyard in their home town. They are about record a new single and
are working on material for their second album.

THE TELESCOPES
The Telescopes are an English noise, space rock, dream pop and psychedelic band, formed in 1987 by Stephen Lawrie, and drawing influence from artists such as Suicide, The Velvet Underground and The 13th Floor Elevators.[2] They have a total of six released albums since their debut, Taste, released in 1989.

All the best.

BOOKING OFFERS (WEEK 26 – 2017)

To whom it may concern,

I am proposing you these bands and artists this week: Larsen,
Tisiphone, Judy Dunaway and Charlemagne Palestine & Grumblinf Fur
Time Machine Orchestra.

Please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in setting up a
concert for one of them

LARSEN (ITALY)

Availability: Before and after 26th October
Territory; Europe + UK

TISIPHONE (FRANCE)

Availability: From 20th December backwards
Territory: Europe + UK

JUDY DUNAWAY (USA)

Availability: 8th, 9th and 10th September
Territory: Europe

CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE & GRUMBLING FUR TIME MACHINE ORCHESTRA (USA)

Availability: 23rd and 25th November
Territory: Belgium

————————-

LARSEN

After two albums deeply marked by the smoky voice of singer Little
Annie, Of Grog Vim is the first fully instrumental album to be
released by the band since they started 20 years ago and features
special guest multi-instrumentalist Thor Harris (Swans) on trombone
on two pieces.
Indeed there is, among these eight fully instrumental pieces, a
rational aplomb that rearranges, combines and exalts the almost
(chamber?) orchestra approach underlying so much music of the last
decade (by generalization: minimalism/maximalism, post rock, raga
oriented drones, heavy rock). Here the aim is that of a sound beyond
the scenic effect and the instruments punching the listeners in the
face, to which Larsen prefer a rare solidity, infused with a twisted
stillness and ecstasy. Somehow common territories for the band, but
more passionate and straight to the point than ever.
TISIPHONE

Tisiphone is a french band of cold-rock-tribal-mystic.
Multi-instruments players combined into one organ, TISIPHONE is a
chimera producing a luminous yet confused sound. With its mix of
tribal rhythms, cold guitars, bass no wave, and a soaring, screaming
and singing voice, TISIPHONE defies all genres and plunges us into a
mesmerizing dimension.
During two years, they have played a lot in France – with Jeanne
Added, Algiers, Motorama, Frustration, Qujaku and many others , and
Europe – Berlin, Portugal, Swiss
Our first album (L.P.) has been released at the beginning of the
year 2016 by Automate Records.
JUDY DUNAWAY

Judy Dunaway is an avant-garde composer, free improvisor, conceptual
sound artist, transmission artist and creator of sound installations
who is primarily known for her sound works for latex balloons. Since
1990 she has created over forty works for balloons as sound conduits
and has also made this her main instrument for improvisation.
CHARLEMAGNE PALESTINE & GRUMBLING FUR TIME MACHINE ORCHESTRA

Charlemagne Palestine, the shamanic world-maker and sacred toy
emissary associated with the New York 60’s minimalist scene joins
Grumbling Fur Time Machine Orchestra, or the extended drone arm of
London based multi-disciplinary artists Daniel O’Sullivan and
Alexander Tucker’s experimental avant-pop conception.
The signature strumming of Palestine’s piano augmented by Tucker and
O’Sullivan’s earthware electronics and processed strings create
seamless sonic ripples in a constant state of unfolding. This is
perhaps the most demonstrative document of Palestine’s powerful
vocal delivery – an alien hybrid of sacred music drawing deep from
the well of the cantorial synagogue and Hindustani classical styles
in a bid to channel inter-dimensional beings from ancient cultures.
In some respects this could be thought of as Charlemagne in dub as
Grumbling Fur carefully twist and mangle their palette of
electrified harp, viola, bowed mandolin, percussion, tapes and voice
transformers through chains of loopers resulting in a slowly
dilating vapour.

Thank you for reading.

All the best.

Alain
