“deviant free-jazz destruction”

LAMONT THOMAS is maybe best known as the drummer of blues punk legend THE BASSHOLES, but he has started a very own project as OBNOX some years and eight albums before. “His approach to punk is well… punk as fuck. Thomas doesn’t care about rules and he certainly isn’t afraid to experiment, blending his sound with noise rock, hip-hop, garage, soul, and hardcore. It’s usually abrasive and often pretty steeped in political and social consciousness, he speaking as a voice for the oppressed without gimmick or pandering” – as Post-Trash Mag wrote about him and I just could write the same.

A few years ago Monofonus Press head Morgan Coy had that crazy idea…why not ask OBNOX to make a free jazz record? And he has made one. Morgan says about it: Although it may not directly sound like it, to these ears it’s an updated take on some of the late 70’s free jazz LP’s that, at the time, were panned by critics but now are being rediscovered… think Albert Ayler’s “New Grass”, Archie Shepp’s “Attica Blues,” Larry Young’s “Fuel”, even reminds me of Tony Williams Lifetime at times. OBNOX has infused “templo del sonido” with that same sense of urgency and protest.  Like the 70’s, we are once again in a time of protest and discontent with the world around us – as Thomas so elegantly states in the first lyrics of the album:

“wake up… wake up… America… wake your punk ass up!”

 

Perhaps you are afraid of jazz, even more free jazz, but this album is so much punk than jazz. It needs your open mind only:

Anyway his previous recordings were released e.g. on punk rock’n’roll label Slovenly or noise rock one 12XU.

 

“A nyolcvanas években az embernek csak és kizárólag apokaliptikus, világmegváltó tervei voltak… ” interjú Sőth Sándorral (Spenót)

 

Sőth Sándor, 1988. Fotó: Halas István

Annak ellenére, hogy a Megáll az idő című kultfilmet gyerekkorom óta ismerem, először csak tíz éve hallottam a filmben Pierre-t játszó Sőth Sándor zenekaráról, a Spenótról. Az Ultra Rock Agency című tematikus blogon fedeztem fel őket, és azóta is a kedvenc magyar zenekaromként konferálom fel őket új ismerőseimnek. Legtöbbször jól jön a térítés, mert nem igazán szokás ismerni a Spenót paranoid szintilüktetéssel tarkított new wave/post punk ihletésű zenéjét. Ráadásul szomorú módon végül a Spenót nem került be a nyolcvanas évek ún. underground panoptikumába. A többi, akkori zenekarhoz képest viszonylag keveset lehet tudni róluk, ezért borzasztóan örülök annak, hogy összejött ez az interjú az egyik alapítóval, Sőth Sándorral – aki nem mellesleg zenés pályafutását követően a nemzetközi filmszakmában is szép karriert  futott be producerként, forgatókönyvíróként és rendezőként.

Target: Budapest

A VOIVOD az egyik legnagyobb hatású, mondhatni kultikus thrash metál zenekar. A banda fennállásának 35. évfordulóját turnéval és új lemezzel ünnepli. Budapesten szeptember 15-én a Dürer Kertben.

A hidegháború másik oldalán 1982-ben alakult, a kor nukleáris- és csillagháborús félelmeit megjelenítő, azt továbbfejlesztő, saját mitológiát és vizuális világot építő francia-kanadai együttes nem hétköznapi metál csapat. A műfaj keretei hamar szűknek bizonyultak, gyakran ki is lépték belőle.

Első lemeze szinte ipari thrash, azaz jófajta csörömpölés, amiben hardcore és punk hatások is megjelentek, majd pszichedelikus elemek, Pink Floyd és King Crimson feldolgozások jöttek. 1991-es Angel Rat című lemezük egyenesen progresszív rock – producere a Rush-sal sokat dolgozó Terry Brown volt. Az albummal sikerült két szék közé ülniük. A metálosok megdöbbentek, a progresszív rockerek meg nem vettek róla tudomást, egyedül a kritikusok lelkendeztek. Ők viszont nem szoktak lemezeket vásárolni. Az együttes a progresszív elemeket megtartva, jazzesekkel vegyítve szépen visszametálosodott, közben kilépések miatt trióvá alakult, s az énekes/basszeros autóbalesete után az ezredfordulóra tetszhalottá vált.

A zenekarba az eredeti énekes (Snake) visszatérése, és a Metallicát otthagyó, Voivod rajongó basszusgitáros, Jason Newsted belépése lehelt új életet 2002-ben. Ő már az addigi utolsó, 1997-es lemezen (Phobos) is feltűnt: egy dalszövegét zenésítették meg közösen. Ismertsége óriási segítség volt. Az új lemez (Vovod) saját kis kiadójánál jelent meg, és sosem játszottak még annyi embere előtt, mint ebben az időben. Aztán 2005-ben későn diagnosztizált rákban nagyon hirtelen meghalt Piggy, gitáros és legfőbb dalszerző. A zenekar következő két stúdióalbumát az ő hátrahagyott házi felvételei és instrukciói alapján készítették úgy, hogy a lemezeken Piggy gitározik (Katorz, Infini). A 2013-as Target: Earth már Newsted nélkül készült. Az albumon a visszatér eredeti basszusgitáros, a 91-ben kivált Blacky – aki közben kortárs táncdaraboknak írt elektroakusztikus zenét. (Viszont pár év múlva ismét kivált.)

A legújabb nagylemez a The Wake e hónap végén jön ki. “Futurisztikus progresszív thrash metal” – mondja róla Away. Olyan egyre kevésbé futurisztikus témákkal, mint tudatmódosítás, összeesküvés elméletek és gyakorlatok, káosz és katasztrófa – ahova a mesterséges intelligencia fogja vezetni az emberiséget.

A természetes intelligencia viszont VOIVOD koncertre vezeti a népet

SZEPTEMBER 15. BUDAPEST DÜRER KERT

Black Heaven on Blue Danube

Hash Wednesday with two American eclectic psychedelic rock bands

EARTHLESS and PALLBEARER

on 8 AUG in BUDAPEST at A38

 

EARTHLESS is heavy psychedelic rock trio. Creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking mainly instrumental music inspired by an eclectic semi-improvised mix of German krautrock – like Guru Guru, Amon Düül II – and Japanese heavy blues-rock bands like Flower Travelling Band or Blues Creation. But there are other stuffs which are affecting their music e.g. and especially the first three ZZ Top albums, the Aussie post-punk band Scientists, lots of jazz like old Coltrane and Thelonious Monk or some mid-60s garage rock bands. But for me their music often cites when Black Sabbath played with Jimmy Hendrix at an acid jam session in my mind.

Their new album BLACK HEAVEN released this year on Nuclear Blast Records. You can listen to it in full entirety.

The other band will be the PALLBEARER that lysergic night. They are mixing progressive rock in its classical sense, alterative rock of the nineties and the timeless weight of doom.

So the best if you accept your fate and take a psychedelic mind trip at full tilt and celebrate Hash Wednesday with them that night on the spot.

Slovenly, Solo Male, Gay, Hunks, Handjob, HD

Új zenekar a Black Gladiator/Slovenly Recordings-nál (a Slovenly alkiadója a Black Gladiator ami a durvább vagy punkosabb, trash-esebb cuccokat adja ki. A Black Gladiatort Peter haverje Bazooka Joe nyomatja), szeptember hetedikén ki is jön majd egy öt számos kislemez, aminek egyik dalára videó is készült, ami olyan jóra sikeredett, hogy a kiadó a szokásos promóciós csatornákat (fb yt) bölcsen megkerülve egyből egy melegpornó oldalra tette fel azt.
A zenekar (Puppy and the Handjobs) vezetője és a videó főszereplője Jamie Paul Lamb, akinek a We’re Loud dupla válogatásalbumot köszönhetjük, amiről itt írtunk bővebben >> LINK <<

Ha úgyérzed, hogy felzaklatna, akkor ne kattints.

Az 1971- es születésű Lamb a 90-es években jött-ment az USA-ban négysávos Yamaha MT50- es magnójával és felvételeket készített mindenféle punk / garage bandáknak miközben ő maga is jó néhányban zenélt plusz igyekezett megszabadulni erős heroin függőségétől. Ami hol sikerült, hol nem. Leszokás, visszaszokás, hepa c, halott zenésztársak stb.
Főleg a Houston-Phoenix-New York tengely mentén mozgott és rögzített, játszott mániákusan és igen jó ízléssel. Ezek a felvételek csak 2015-ben jelentek meg a már említett We ‘re Loud válogatáson, addig különböző kazettákon pihentek. A teljes dupla album meghallgatható >> ITT <<
Gitár, basszus, dob, billentyűsök, ének -minden megyen Jamie-nek! Igaz a fő csapás a punk és a power pop, de van minden a tarsolyban free jazztől az exotica-ig, garage funk-ig.

How To Disappear Completely

Portuguese blues passionate THE LEGENDARY TIGERMAN began a solo career in 2000. He plays with the clichés of rocker macho, fascinated by the 50’s aesthetics

His 6th album MISFIT was inspired by Dave Richmond’s book How To Disappear Completely and Never Be Found. He imagined the journey of a man called Misfit who wanted to lose himself in the desert and actually become nothing. Therefore, in May 2016, The Legendary Tigerman i.e. PaoloFurtado and his image crew headed to Los Angeles and film a psychedelic adventure in the form of a road movie between Los Angeles and Death Valley, about the philosophically disturbed journey of a man searching to become nothing.

There Furtado spent his days writing the diaries of this imaginary man, acting, while at night, in motel rooms across the California deserts, armed with a Gibson SG. The album was recorded in Joshua Tree, in the heart of the Mojave Desert.

“We lived the slow desert life, between the studio, the Joshua Tree Saloon, and the Pappy and Harriets, a pub in Pioneer Town, where we went to enjoy some live music. While Dave cooked some amazing Louisiana and Tex-Mex dishes for dinner, fueled with red wine, Modelo beer and Tequila, we recorded the songs in live takes, and then built the wall of sound with overdubs.”

But we now go to Japan. The clip “Motorcycle Boy” is equal parts documentary and music video. Offers a raw glimpse into the slowly vanishing culture of Bōsōzoku – the motorcycle gangs that once ruled the roads of Japan back in the 90’s:

Just Leaving Footsteps in The Snow

 

PRIMO! is a raw minimal guitar pop band from Melbourne with the two girls from one of the most amazing Australian pop bands TERRY. Their short, beautifully simple and purposeful songs reference the 40-hour working week, the city, bureaucracy, walking, a ghost and a mirage:

They are going to European tour in August. And also there will be a TERRY tour in Europe in September.

AMICI will release on 13 July on UPSET THE RYTHM RECORDS (UK)

 

Fast & Loud

 

JOHNNY MAFIA hails from Sens, Burgundy (which is known more for it’s wheat and cereal production than rock ‘n’ roll) and bring a young, snotty, explosive and ferociously fun energy that drives audiences into a near-frenzy. Inspired by classics like The Ramones, T-Rex, and The Clash, they also draw heavily on contemporary acts like
Ty Segall, Jay Reatard, and the Wavves. The band have just released the video single for BIG BRAWL

after recently finishing recording and mastering their sophomore album PRINCES DE L’AMOUR with producer JIM DIAMOND – who was the bass player of Dirtbombs and produced albums for The Sonics, Andre Williams, The John Spencer Blues Explosion, White Stripes and countless others.

Jim was forced to shut the doors at his studio Ghetto Recorders in 2015 due to what can only be described as “hipsterfication in the downtown Detroit area when his landlord doubled his rent. He set up a new base in Montpellier, and continues his prolific presence across the scene, working with bands as far and wide from Cambodia to Cleveland. In recent years, Diamond has become something of an unofficial in-house label producer/engineer at DIRTY WATER RECORDS.

The album PRINCES DE L’AMOUR will release on 9 November on DIRTY WATER RECORDS (UK).

LAST RECORDS OF THE LEAST LABELS
EVERY MONTH LAST WEEKEND ONLINE
and LIVE at BEAT ON THE BRAT in BUDAPEST

 

1. Experimental, kitchen-produced hybrid of folk, musique concrète and psychedelia by ODETTA HARTMAN.

She raised by pioneering parents on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, NYC, Odetta’s milieu was a “colorful culture of artistry,” that included early exposure to community activism, renegade film screenings, poetry readings and trips to CBGB’s. Inchoate punk and hip hop were aural wallpaper, as were the 45s spinning in the household jukebox featuring her dad’s extensive collection of soul and afrobeat records, as well as her Appalachian mother’s classic country selections. A classically trained violinist with a penchant for back-porch banjo, Odetta combines these variegated sounds of her childhood with her personal passion for folk music and the musicological legacy of Alan Lomax. But she never takes herself too seriously and always tries to have fun, so she went to the kitchen.

“Many of the beats on the album were recorded in the kitchen: the snare sound is actually a running faucet, or if you hear these glockenspiel bells that’s actually a set of kitchen bowls. Other percussive elements include scissors, a pepper grinder and keys on the radiator.” Anyway she loves mistakes in songwriting or recording, because they so often lead to something greater. I do not know how many songs got its final form by mistakes on this album, just know that is weird and wonderful. Her second album OLD ROCKHOUNDS NEVER DIE is slated for release on NORTHERN SPY RECORDS and MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES on August 10, 2018.

2. THE DUE DILIGENCE is a free form band of songwriter Isaac Gillespie and his friends. The new alum LIFE IS HARD is the final piece of a trilogy. It was started with the country-soul album “I Will Wreck Your Life” in 2011. It was the encapsulation of the years Gillespie spent in the antifolk scene. The second part was the frenetic Velvet Underground-infused sarcasm of 2014’s Are You Down. It’s the wild night on the town, but it’s also the morning after. A recognition of the difficulty of life.

LIFE IS HARD is largely inspired by songwriter Gillespie’s grandmother’s passing, and her perseverance through the many challenges of being a single mother and a child of immigrants in the 1950s. LIFE IS HARD is both the death album and the pop album. It provides a trash-gospel meditation on the tug of war between the lusts that drive us and the deaths to which we’re driven. It was inspired by the psychedelic soul of Sly & the Family Stone and the “plaintive mythologizing” of Grateful Dead. It will be released in June on PAPER GARDEN RECORDS (US).

3. Atlanta’s SUBSONICS are a gutter-glam, minimal rock’n’roll trio. FLESH COLORED PAINT is their 8th album. Like all their previous works, this is a distilled hodgepodge of decades of popular culture and classic literature culminating in a collection of short and groovy shambolar: Chuck Berry, Albert Camus, AM radio rock jocks, Bo Diddley, Golden Age TV, surrealism, Mad Magazine, kung-fu flicks, Herman Melville, Little Richard, self-negating philosophy, David Johansen, The Bible, Dee Dee Ramone, Lee Van Cleef, Cornell Woolrich, advertising jingles, Dada, Carole King, Bugs Bunny, and Casablanca; the poem, not the film. The album was released by SLOVENLY RECORDS.

——–

4. New Yorker PARQUET COURTS is a punk band. Hard to say anything else. OK, compared to Total Punk Records style punk bands they rather play pop music. Their influences come from Velvet Underground, Ramones and Talking Heads, but I also hear The Fall and even Country Teasers in their music. I remember their first album was a big revelation for me. There the sound was more punk than on the next ones. Fortunately unlike many others they don’t write the same record year by year. And now with the new album WIDE AWAKE we arrived to New Orelans.

5. Howe Gelb refused to cancel their first Los Angeles live gig when his band Giant Sandworms had broken up days before in Tucson, Arizona. Instead, he headed out anyway with Scott Garber, the newest member who’d only been in the band for about a year. Gelb asked fellow Tucsonan Winston Watson who lived in Los Angeles to jump in as drummer for the live date. And he did it with no rehearsal. The result was so sparked with adrenalin, that the trio set up an impromptu studio session the next day to attempt to capture the sonic thrust on tape. Later they recorded some songs to make it to a full LP with a different drummer in Tucson. The album Valley Of Rain was released in 1985 under the name of GIANT SAND.

But at the time of the recording Gelb was unacquainted with the possibilities of tube amps. So 30 some years later, now that the band had been put to sleep indefinitely, those very first songs had begun creeping into the last Giant Sand tours. It somehow seemed appropriate to give them another shot with the proper amp just to see what they could’ve been. What made the idea more approachable was the availability of both original drummers living back in Tucson. And they recorded the songs again together with the two newest member. And the sound is insane.

The album RETURN TO VALLEY OF THE RAIN on FIRE RECORDS (UK)

6. After a few months spent abroad in Spain and her infatuation with Brazilian music, Chicago based Vivian McConnell was inspired to create a dreamy new genre she calls “nap-rock” and to assume the moniker of V.V. LIGHTBODY – the name of her piano-playing grandmother. The ocean-like tunes on the album BATHING PEACH combine the vivid lyricism of Joni Mitchell with the jazz-inflected chords of Sam Prekop’s early solo records. Unanchored in a sea of glitching mermaids, V.V. LIGHTBODY is a surreal reflection of McConnell’s experiences and influences that coalesce into an intimate narrative of self-discovery.

——–

7. After half year that her album with Kurt Vile was released Australian indie rock songstress COURTNEY BARNETT has released her new album TELL ME HOW YOU REALLY FEEL with contribution of Kim and Kelly Deal from Breeders on MILK RECORDS (AUS), MOM+POP MUSIC (US) and MARATHON ARTISTS (UK)

——–

8. So here is PALBERTA‘s new album ROACH GOIN’ DOWN on WHARF CAT RECORDS (US) soon. The best phrase which best describes the music of these girls is: wap wap wap dabbada ding ding dack dabbada.

9. THE DREEBS have been making music in New York since 2009. Over the next couple years they would find a home in the Brooklyn noise rock community, while staying true to their specific sound palette. The best if their friend Andrew Savage (Parquet Quarts) tells you about the band and their new album FOREST OF A CREW on RAMP LOCAL RECORDS (US).

First a little catch up for the unacquainted: Every member of The Dreebs has, at some point, been a member of PC Worship (that is if the players in the notorious New York City collective could ever be called members). The Dreebs were first described to me years ago as PC Worship’s weirder side project, which immediately caught my attention because, how could a band be weirder than PC Worship. I’m not going to even attempt to quantify that because it’s utterly impossible. Though over the years, we’ve seen a sort of Dreebian declaration of independence by their increased presence in the New York City DIY and avant-garde scenes. That independence has been loudly articulated in the form of Forest Of A Crew. It’s the sum of eight songs and seven instrumentals. These pieces wash over the listener like vignettes of a fever dream, punctuated with moments of terror and beauty. It exists not in romanticized New York of old where artists could survive in squalor so long as they existed in inexpensive and undesirable locations where no squares fear to tread. Rather, the hellscape of The Dreebs is of a different variety, where even Bushwick is unaffordable and the decision to live as an artist in the city has become a perilous one.

——–

10. THE COMMON COLD is an English psychedelic rock band whose sound incorporates elements of Krautrock, post-punk, and northern soul. It has been formed by two friends Ajay Saggar and Mark Wareing, the duo had served time in legendary British punk band Dandelion Adventure many years before. Two years ago they took to the stage for the first time together nearly after 30 years to play a set of psych jams. Later they got three drummers, but one time just two play. They got the influence from Kaleidoscope, Neu!, Quicksilver Messenger Service, and The Fall. On their debut album SHUT UP! YO LIBERALS! on ACTION RECORDS features former drummers of Cornershop and The Fall.

——–

11. SECOND STILL is an LA based post-punk, cold wave wave band. Best describe them the names of the labels which release their music: Manic Depression, Weyrd Son and Sentimental Records. Their new EP EQUALS was released on WEYRD SON RECORDS (Belgium). I was so lucky that i saw them in Budapest not long before. It was a frantic night.

——–

12. APOSTILLE is the solo electronic project of Night-School Records‘ head Michael Kasparis. His second solo album CHOOSE LIFE will release on 8 June on UPSET THE RHYTHM RECORDS, and it’s the greatest new wave synth-pop music what I heard recently. Minimal and courageous. It’s not a simple thing. Through EBM and acid techno finally it reach to Prodigy.

——–

13. It’s time for mysterious cinematic pop melancholia with Scottish musician PICTISH TRAIL. He is a svelte, intelligent, adorable balladeer, trapped inside the body of an oversized, oft-bearded folk ogre. Runs Lost Map Records, up on the isle of Eig. It’s one of the Small Isles in the Inner Hebrides with a population around 100. His extraordinary vocals reveal hidden depths and have been accompanied by everything from acoustic guitar to a full-on four piece metal band to throbbing dance beats and samples, and often during the course of the same gig. The album FUTURE ECHOES originally released in 2016 on his label, but now it will be re-released with a bunch of unreleased remixes and live materials in July on FIRE RECORDS (UK)

——–

14. “Searching for the light in the pouring rain” is the motto of THE GOLDEN DREGS. It’s the project of Benjamin Woods with a musical approach inspired by 70’s Americana and jam bands, The Grateful Dead, Bob Dylan’s The Basement Tapes, and the documentary movie about the Mussel Shoals Studio.

The debut album LAFAYETTE is jangly summer-summoning pop for the hours when the sun is disappearing below the sea. What it plays out is a rich representation of small town living; from the churn of the rumour mill to the assortment of intriguing characters that only seem to exist far away from motorways, Itsu chains and the relative anonymity afforded by city living. It was recorded with contributions from some of the town Falmouth’s best musicians – the Cleave brothers (The Red Cords), Samuel Stacpoole (Holiday Ghosts), Jake Wilbourne (The Black Tambourines) and plenty more. And released on ART IS HARD RECORDS. And good to listen to it.

——–

15. ONYX was the avant-garde electronic duo of American songwriter and instrumentalist Judd Stone, and British vocalist and fashion model Beveur in the early 80s. The only instruments they used are drums /percussion and synthesizers – except for a primitive drum machine track that is used on “Planet X”. All of the instruments are played, and there is no syncing or sequencers used on any of the recordings. The bass tracks are keyboard bass. And what they recorded it is still fresh.

COMPLETE WORKS 1981-83 will release in June on Osaka based Franco-Japanese label MIND RECORDS.
