Thanks for the interview!

My copy of Bruce Russell's book arrived a few days ago, but I haven't started reading it yet. Going by your comments and the back cover blurb it sounds like it's a fairly theoretical book.

I'll probably leave it in the shrink-wrap for at least another month because I'm already going through a pile of 4-5 English books at the moment and when that's done I'd imagine I'll probably want to read something in Dutch again first.

Finally took it out of the shrink wrap this morning and while browsing through it, it does look like it's not an easy read, at least not for a non-native speaker like me. I'm gonna have to keep my English dictionary right next to it.


Did anyone get the Clyma est Mort/Tentative Power reissue?
There's supposed to be a CD inside the 2LP, but mine doesn't have one. boohoo.
For those who have it, is it a loose CD or something with a cover? Does it have just the Tentative Power tracks or also Clyma est Mort?

There's an interesting story by Tom Lax on the Volcanic Tongue site about the making of Clyma est Mort:
Cowbell Need Not Apply: The story behind the making of the Dead Cís Clyma Est Mort

i read an interview with bruce russell recently where he said he deliberatley uses vague or oblique language, here:

I've been really into the 'Free Noise Manifesto' lately. Did you have a
background in philosophy?


I did a couple of degrees. I was in the political studies department but my
focus was on political philosophy. I've always been interested. I've done a bit
of reading, I guess. Part of the manifest…part of the presentation is slightly
tongue-in-cheek in the sense that it's couched in some fairly oblique
indeterminate language. Also, at the time I was trying to make a point that
there is more to music than writing the perfect pop song. Where I was in the
south island of
New Zealand
,
basically there was this overwhelming orthodoxy that writing the perfect pop
song is all that matters. I was trying to make a point that there is a lot more
to music than that and maybe that's a worthwhile pastime but a sad ambition. I
don't regret having written that manifesto by any means. At times, it has become
a bit of an albatross for me because people tend to regard it as the
be-all-end-all of what I do. It's a little bit limiting in some ways but I stand
by most of what I said. You must understand, I wrote it…when did I write it…I
wrote it about 15 years ago. It was very combative, at that point, because I
felt that I was kind of going to bat against the odds in terms of where I was
coming from in New Zealand. I've recently republished it in a book of essays
that I've done. I certainly still stand by it, I guess.

New album "Patience" coming out October 12th on BaDaBing!




 


Patience is both appropriate and inappropriate as a title for the latest release by The Dead C--inappropriate because it's been only two years since the last album, which in Dead C Time is but the flicker of a candle; appropriate since the key to enjoying their sounds is willingness to sit down, listen and let the music take over your mind. These four unforgiving and intense tracks will not be confused with the work of any other band. Recorded in Dunedin over the Southern summer of 2009/10, Patience captures a restless band that never settles into any form. The trio of Michael Morley, Bruce Russell and Robbie Yeats makes their improvised music sound like the most substantial ever recorded, no matter in what direction they go. Here, vocal-less, thick and thundering electric drones compound and retreat like a Pacific Ocean of noise. Morley once again provides the artwork and continues in his color palatte of late. Its circular, flowery texture provides the perfect mandala for contemplation while lost within the deep meditations that Patience inspires.

For those outside the US who are getting the vinyl it is probably cheapest to (pre-)order it from cdwow: €14.99 with free shipping.

They have the CD as well but that's cheaper from the BaDaBing store.

What did he say? I was wondering if it had struck them actually because I knew he's from Christchurch (I think Michael Morley is from Dunedin?).

edit: nevermind, I found it
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010...ch-new-zealand

Quote:
Bruce Russell, 50, said that although he lives in Lyttelton, a port town to the south of Christchurch, which is on firmer volcanic ground, the earthquake had been "very alarming".

"We were woken up at 4.30am and it swayed like a ship at sea," he said. "It was very alarming. We have no power, which is a problem across [Christchurch]. We're listening to reports on a wind-up radio. It's still very frightening."

Russell said he had not experienced an earthquake on this scale before. There have been local reports that some people many have been trapped in damaged houses.

Excellent re: the new release. I wish they'd play some shows here to coincide with the release, but that's pretty unlikely. They have some shows in Melbourne though, according to last fm. Seems silly to have to chase them to Australia to catch a show.

how difficult would it be to book a show for them yourself?

looking forward to the new record, the little samples sound good.

Great with a new album coming out! It's so strange listening to that new Gate album, it's good but so different from everything Gate and The Dead C has released before. I wonder if this will take a similiar approach to the recording, of if you'll still be able to hear that it is a Dead C record you're listening to!

from the sound clips on the badabing website it definitely sounds like a dead c record.

Ok, this will likely be more controversial than Trump. What is the obsession with "push button" ignition? I dont see the advantage in the new cars that have it, and the old stuff just looks silly with it. I see in hot rod catalogs "kits" and many just replace the key with an industrial button switch, but never do I see an advantage. From a mfg stand point it is likely cheaper to mfg a bunch of "fobs" with their own distinct code than a bunch of keys which have a limited number of combinations, but it has been proven to be no more secure than the old key switch. So why the obsession with retro-fitting it to older cars?
