Tonight I'm going to see Charalambides Live
One of the greatest bands is playing in my country which is awesome, as they aren't really popular here. Can't fucking wait to see it!:D :D

This band's finest song from this band's finest album

The Charalamabides are cool but I find I enjoy Tom's solo sets much more and am really digging his current collaboration 1129 with Marc Orleans who infact I'm seeing tonite and also Sunday....

the Charalamabides are playing in Europe this fall...with Steve Gunn-John Tuscinski duo!
10.22.11 Graag Traag festival with Charlemagne Palestine & Tony Conrad, Steve Gunn & John Truscinski, Junzo Suzuki, Tonton Macoute, Ralph White, Gangalai & Gourabai and Dreamweapon (Angus MacLise exhibit) at Kunstencentrum Belgie, Burgemeester Bollenstraat 54, Hasselt, Belgium Amsterdam

Also check out this record (their only?):

I like the name, because it's similar to Ticket Crystals, analbum of Bardo Pond. Hm.

Gulasch Noir 08.28.2011 01:32 PM

Also Bastard Wing, the album of Christina Carter, is eeringly beautiful. Hm.

Cheers. Ive still not listened to any Christina Carter solo stuff, I think im still working thru the Charalambides canon. Just one listen through Market Square is enough to wear you out, its one of the most emotionally exhausting albums ive ever listened to.

Gulasch Noir 08.28.2011 03:03 PM

The opening title on Marekt Square is pure bliss. Our bed is green is also nice, it was re-released a few years ago. I bought it. Marekt Square reaches considerable prices on e-bay. Would be cool to have the LP.

the ikara cult 08.28.2011 03:15 PM

I saw Market Square for 25 the other day, i dunno if thats a reasonable price. I know Siltbreeze has been doing good business over the last couple of years, im amazed they havent reissued alot of this stuff that people are clearly interested in. Id definitely buy a Vinyl reissue of Market Square and Union.

Gulasch Noir 08.28.2011 03:18 PM

25 british pounds is not that much. A few years ago I saw a few auctions up to nearly $ 100.

the ikara cult 08.28.2011 03:30 PM

Ive looked for it before and normally found it at 40 or so, Union has tended to be even more expensive when ive seen it.

crimony, anyone in LA this weekend won't want to miss this <sorry formatting lost> ---------- Emerald Cocoon presents TRAPDOOR FUCKING EXIT, a series of performances taking place inside Helga Fassonaki's Installation, Touching Them Touching Me - A Love Song for the Dead C at Human Resources gallery April 20 - 22, 2012. Address: 410 Cottage Home St in Chinatown, 90012 $10 each night or $20 for all 3 nights!!
7PM TOM CARTER – Pete Swanson once described him to me as a ‘wizard’ and I think he might be right. His last solo set in LA was one of the most life-affirming demonstrations of the term ‘slow-burn’ that I have ever seen. And you weren’t there. Please use this opportunity to correct yourself.
BRIAN CROOK (NZ) – guitarist/vocalist from The Renderers/The Terminals/Flies Inside The Sun/The Max Block/Scorched Earth Policy etc etc etc. If these names mean nothing to you then you may as well stay at home. Hand down New Zealands best guitarist. Ask anyone. GLANDS OF EXTERNAL SECRETION – reclusive legends Barbara Manning and Seymour Glass in their first LA performance (3rd performance in 18 years!). In 2003 they released a ‘no instruments’ cover of ‘Tubular Bells’. We have no idea what is going to happen. QUEEN VICTORIA – “I’m basically only interested in acoustic noise now” – Nick Malkin aka Queen Victoria YEK KOO – Helga will perform the whole of her new ‘Love Song for the Dead C’ LP in it’s entirety for the first time. * plus a performance in absentia by ADAM WILLETTS (NZ) - Adam delivers a mailed-in dose of his non-denominational acid electronics from Christchurch.
CHARALAMBIDES – Forget obscure psych-folk reissue ‘gems’ hitting the shelves daily, you don’t have to look back to the pre-corporate takeover era to find modern psychedelic music of rare beauty. Tom and Christina Carter are perhaps the greatest living practitioners of the form in America. Having been through various configurations and conceptual approaches from avant-folk, through minimalist improvisation right out the other side into folk-form again over a period of 21 years they have consistently chosen the path less trodden, leaving behind them a body of work as monumental as that of Keiji Haino or The Dead C. Don’t get left behind in the wake of cheap party music and illusionary careerist cash dreams: there are visionaries in our midst. 500 MG – Michael Gibbons of psych warriors Bardo Pond performs in his 500mg guise for the first time in LA. Twisting/burning psilocybe mantras. PURPLE PILGRIMS (NZ) – Sister duo from Christchurch, fog shrouded choral vox coated with distant reverb guitar. Immersive. PETER KOLOVOS – Thin Wrist Recordings proprietor plays electric guitar like fireworks built out of stained glass. GABIE STRONG – Local artist and bassist of Lady Noise. No-one knows what to expect - bass? UN CIEGO – Plans to one day release something that isn’t a lathe-cut. Perhaps a one sided c20 in an edition of 5?
6PM MARYROSE CROOK (NZ) – Of The Renderers/The Max Block/Above Ground (whose sole cassette was recently reissued by Siltbreeze). Aching loose country psych ballads from one of the godmothers of the NZ underground. LA LAKERS (NZ) - New Zealand facsimile of LA basketball team slam dunks improvised tape compositions. METAL ROUGE – First LA show in a few months and probably the last for a few more. New material. Less interested than ever in ‘entertaining’ you. DEREK ROGERS – Recent Texas transplant with a million tapes on a million labels everywhere. Laminal. BAILOUTS – First performance from new duo unit made up of members of The Faraday Trippers and Shelter Death. Something’s brewing in the OC and it’s not just kopi luwak. *plus a non-appearance performance by BILL ORCUTT – Bill unfortunately couldn’t be with us in person because he’s on tour, BUT he did give us an exclusive new work to premiere. New cubist blues, with no interest in your opinion.
