Take a Nightride with The Pussywarmers

from the sunset till the sunrise

THE PUSSYWARMERS is a Swiss band. I wrote some years ago about them

“The Pussywarmers is a band of a traveling circus. They play swing for the rope-dancers, blues for the knife thrower, tarantella for the lion tamer, dixieland for the magician, cha-cha-cha for the trapezists, tango for the bears, polka for the poodles, waltz for the monkeys and criss-cross for the clowns on four languages.”

They have recently released the Nightride EP under the name of THE PUSSYWARMERES  & RÉKA’S ELEKTRONISCHE ABTEILUNG via Annibale Records. And it is totally different than their previous recordings. So I have had to ask what is the story of this project?

Réka: At the beginning of the year we introduced “The Pussywarmers & Réka’s Jizz Ensemble” which represents our “Tropical Big Band”. For the new record we decided to strip down to a quartet: “Elektronische Abteilung” which means “Electronic Department”. It´s a concept for an “Alter Ego Band”. Inventing this band in a Band-Project lead to more freedom in the creative process of composing and recording.

We have a hideout in the mountains of Italy where we are only allowed to play in a low volume.  These situations forced us to play around with loops which we kept on sometimes for hours. This sounds and loops created sometimes states of hypnosis. In this new found state we also started to experiment with new sounds and instruments. For “Nightride” we wanted to capture those moods and used instruments that would reflect perfectly those nights. From the sunset till the sunrise.

“Nightride” is very cinematique, so a big influence – for this new way of writing and recording music – were definitely movies. In Zürich exists the Institute of Incoherent Cinematography. Pablo Assandri – the head of IOIC – organizes silent movie events to which he invites musicians to create new film scores for these movies in a live situation. He invited us a couple of times and we loved it. To compose music to images is a very different approach. Music can be created which would never arise in normal practicing situations. Characters and scenes of the movie can become your muses. For example we played for Fred Niblo’s film The Temptress (1926).

The event series is called “The Underworld in Silent Film”. Here is a trailer

Next event will be on 30 March. Marena Whitcher’s Shady Midnight Orchestra plays on the film Der Geisterzug (Ghost Train, Germany/UK, 1927) by Géza von Bolváry.

endlessboogie

was formed in 1997 by Matador Records employees and a record collector for jamming. Initially having no plans to record or to tour. They played their first live show in 2001 as an opening act for Pavement’s Stephen Malkmus. First LP in 2005. Their new album Vibe Killer out 19 May on No Quarter Records (US)

POWER has been started when three HC/Punk musicians, Penky, Slimy, and Isaac shared their mutual love of the Australian psychedelic hard rock blues group Coloured Balls while sitting in a beer garden during a Melbourne punk show. Right after they started a new band to play in that raw pub rock style as Coloured Balls and others did it in the early 70s. First POWER album Electric Glitter Boogie was released on Cool Death Records in 2015. Re-release out now by In The Red Records (US)

Hi Hats Are For Post Punk Heroes

TAOS HUMM is a Bristol based experimental rock trio.

Sometimes pop, sometimes jazz, sometimes punk,
sometimes psychedelic, sometimes ambient
but often nerve-rackingly funny

 

from the new album Flute Of The Noodle Bender
on Stolen Body and Howling Owl Records (UK)

but what is Taos Humm, id est Taos Hum?
