Drone music
I've become a huge fan of drone stuff in the likes of Birchville Cat Motel, Sunroof! etc. Can you by chance recommend me any other projects that are worth checking out?
thanks pals

Robe indeed.

Possibly Larsen or (r) - They're not pure drone, but they have drone elements, I think.

Double Leopards are fantastic.

Lovesliescrushing have some drone elements, even if they're not true drone, but they're really good

Brother Ah - Sound Awareness

from Aquarius Records:

Ex-Sun Ra band member and musical visionary Brother Ah created a world even farther out than Sun Ra's if you can believe that. This early seventies classic features two extended numbers, the first a dreamy, spacy, psychedelic soundscape with heavily reverbed, chanted vocals, and heavily affected nature sounds. Dark and drone-y and completely overpowering. As tripped out as anything Acid Mothers Temple or any other modern psych band has attempted. The second, a spare, rhythmic, super free, clattery No Neck Blues Band-ish hippy jam, with thundering percussion, howling horns, and bells and chimes and hand drums that slowly develops into a throbbing, jazz rock revival complete with celebrated drummer Max Roach testifying to the glory of LOVE while an enthusiastic crowd cheers him on as gongs and shouts and thrumming bass lines get more and more feverish, climaxing in a furious eruption of wild percussion. Way, way out there. Not for the faint of heart, but definitely for fans of Sun Ra, No Neck Blues Band, and all sorts of out rock/free jazz.

Keiji Haino - Reveal'd To None As Yet
No Neck Blues Band - Letters From The Earth
Avarus - Jattilaisrotta
Toho Sara - Hourouurin
Acid Mothers Temple - 41st Century Splendid Man

I would add these to the list:

Taj Mahal Travellers
Takehisa Kosugi
"Dreamweapon" by Spacemen 3
"The Sadness Of Things" by Steven Stapleton and David Tibet

I will think of some more later.

racehorse 09.18.2006 11:46 AM

definately check out some "boris".
and the double leopards are fantastic, it's a shame "Half Mean" is out of print now, because that album is fucking amazing.
"glad i nabbed myself a copy" :):)

Boris - Absolutego. None of their other albums are drone, though.

Diesel 09.18.2006 05:27 PM

i like drone in very small doses. if an album is rocking and then splits things up into a drone piece albeit a good one then i can like it, root as an example but what the fuck is up with albums full of drone ?! i used to make drone when i was a young un' cos' i couldn't play geeeetar feck haaa.

lovesliescrushing is the most boring band i've ever heard in my life, it's just some old casio keyboard sitting on one chord for 10 minutes. it's awful.

i got the tandoori dream cd-r and the wapstan/clon collaboration from martin, both are amazingly ace.
