Michael Morley has no official website or myspace, so I can't easily find tourdates :(

If anyone finds that Gate is playing near them, please post details here :)

I was listened to Republic of Sadness properly for the first time the other night, with no distractions, and realised it's not just good, it's absolutely fucking marvellous. I was so absorbed that I forgot to get off the train at my station, and had to walk six and a half miles home from the next one in the early hours of the morning. I didn't listen to it again while I was walking, it was down unlit roads with no footpath, and I thought it would be a good idea to have my wits about me.

I have two days' holiday left that I can take before the end of January. Do I do this or not?

(I'm just thinking out loud, not asking for advice)

nothing has been posted about any UK Dead C dates yet so it might be worth asking

love to see what effects he's using... its a rather simple pedal setup appears to be the following

Electro-Harmonix Graphic Fuzz -> Boss Space Echo -> Boss Loop Station

Dutch date! Added to State-X lineup according to http://www.festivalinfo.nl/news_deta...?news_id=11502.

pokkeherrie 10.29.2010 07:50 AM

^^Not bad!
Last night I was told by someone in the know that they did try to get The Dead C as well, but they're not (allowed?) doing anymore gigs other than the ones already announced.
Anyway, Gate + Borbetomagus means I'll probably get a ticket for the Saturday.


Also, for Blunderbuss:
Gate in Cambridge on December 7th
http://www.crushingdeath.com/2010/10/25/gate/
(I guess that probably means London on the 8th or 9th?)

blunderbuss 10.29.2010 11:25 AM

I'll keep the ol' fingers in a state of crossedness.

So where will I be on December 7th? In bed, trying to fight off the flu, that's where. I have a feeling that fate is never going to allow me to see a Gate show.

get well soon blunderbuss... :(

I enjoyed his performance in Den Haag, even though I'm pretty sure Michael Morley himself didn't.

Does anybody have this one? What's it like?


 

blunderbuss 12.27.2010 02:13 AM

Never seen it before. What is it? (I promise I won't bid against you!)

pokkeherrie 12.27.2010 03:32 AM

It's a Gate LP called "Amerika". I already "won" it on eBay yesterday... but there's another one up for auction right now:
http://cgi.ebay.nl/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=330511519757

I hadn't heard of it before. The seller has some other rare Gate releases up for sale as well. I'll probably be bidding on one or two of them.

Great! You know where to send them for flacification. :D

Gate at Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit:


Friday, April 1st at 8PM
Michael Morley/Gate, Blank Dogs, Dark Red and Mountains
Admission: $8.00

Michael Morley performs solo as Gate on this very exciting occasion. Michael Morley is one third of pioneering New Zealand experimentalists the Dead C. Willfully obscure, real life legends, the Dead C brought together avant-garde jazz, and a wandering, playful sense of experimentalism. They added a sincere sneer and a little punk rock nihilism and opened the door for fuzzed-out, abrasive, free noise to become the sound of the underground for a generation to come.

Blank Dogs are the project of Mike Sniper, a multi-instrumentalist songwriter living in Brooklyn, NY. Recording for the In the Red label, Sniper has released several albums under the Blank Dogs moniker of skuzzy, indie-pop that are essentially solo albums. As a touring band the group raises and catchy, fuzz-laden throbbing wall of sound that is a marvel to behold live.

Detroit's Dark Red maintain a similarly psychedelic sound but with a more bombastic view of minimalism and drone, punching out sweet and simple pop tones with a gritty, wall-of-noise sensibility.

Mountains are a psychedelic folk music group from Brooklyn, NY using acoustic instruments and electronics to explore the inner depths through minimalist drones and heavy repetitions.

I hope the Dead C guys all got safely through the earthquake.

blunderbuss 02.23.2011 03:33 AM

Yeah. Likewise Peter Wright, who lives in Lyttleton.

Bruce Russell is supposed to be performing there this weekend. I hope for the town's sake it can go ahead.

I'm listening to the local radio station online at the moment, and there's a lot of minor tremours still going on. Hope they stay minor.
