The second album from Original Silence is coming on August 11th:

Thurston Moore dream team at Nighttime Øya


 


THURSTON MOORE’S ORIGINAL SILENCE – AUG. 7

A real tidbit for this year’s Nighttime segment of the Øya Festival has now been confirmed. Like last time, Thurston Moore will not be content with playing only a Sonic Youth gig. This time he’ll bring along a selection of skilled musicians flown in from all across the globe to make delightful noise way into the wee hours on Thursday Aug. 7. In addition, you’ll be able to see the Japanese trio Nisennenmondai the same evening.
We’ve earlier announced that the German act The Notwist will be playing at Nighttime Øya on August 8. It’s now been affirmed that they’ll be accompanied by Grand Archives, led by Band of Horses ex-member Matt Brooke.
Nighttime Øya is a selection of parties and gigs that’ll take place across Oslo after the Medieval Park closes at 11 p.m. Common for all the events is the discount on admission that you’ll get when showing a valid Øya wrist band.
ORIGINAL SILENCE (US/NO/SE/IT)
NISENNENMONDAI (JP)
Rockefeller
Thursday Aug. 7
Nighttime Øya
Original Silence
Feat.: MATS GUSTAFSSON, THURSTON MOORE, PAAL NILSEN-LOVE, TERRIE EX, MASSIMO PUPILLO, et al.
+ Support: Nisennenmondai
Not only will Thurston Moore be playing the Øya Festival with his legendary Sonic Youth, he’ll also bring along some other friends of his and conjure up more magical stuff!
Original Silence will be out with the album ’The Second Original Silence’ – recorded in Rome last fall and released on Smalltown Superjazz – on August 11, and it will probably be just as great as we imagine. Just look what Pitchfork Media wrote:
“Picture Ornette Coleman sitting in with the Stooges (the old Stooges, that is) as they tear through ‘L.A. Blues’, and you’d be in the neighborhood of free jazz/noise rock/construction noise hybrid Original Silence.” (8,0 Pitchfork)
The Original Silence line-up consists of dream team Mats Gustafsson (saxophone, electronics), Massimo Pupillo (bass), Terrie Ex (guitar), Thurston Moore (guitar), Jim O’Rourke (electronics), and Paal Nilssen-Love (percussion).
The Japanese girls in the instrumental trio Nisennenmondai are out with ‘Tori/Neji’ (also on Smalltown Supersound) and have bands like No Age, Battles, and Prefuse 73 as fans. They’ve also charmed Dazed & Confused:
“With walls of distortion and a pummeling rhythmic backbone that fluctuates between krautrock`s repetition and free-rock calamity, bassist Zai, guitarist Ma-Chan, and drummer Hime have formed an unassuming juggernaut.” (Dazed & Confused)
Tickets are available from Saturday May 31, 10 a.m. Advance booking at www.rockefeller.no and www.ticketservice.no

What makes you ask that? I have posted only 2280 posts which means that I have more "life" than 60 members around here.
My wife think you are right though.

Thurston, Jim O'Rourke Ready New Original Silence LP
Plan single gig in Norway that'll probably turn up as Original Silence LP4 in a few years
http://assets4.pitchforkmedia.com/im...alSilence.jpg? Front page photo by Alessandro Capodanno
Fans of logic and order will, at the very least, appreciate the title of The Second Original Silence, the second LP from free jazz/noise supergroup Original Silence. The glorious mess contained within, however, may not sit too well with that set-- more for the rest of us, I suppose.
As you may recall, Original Silence is comprised of Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore, man-about-town Jim O'Rourke, Swedish saxman Mats Gustafsson, Terrie Ex of the Ex, Paal Nilssen-Love of the Thing, and Zu's Massimo Puppilo. The Second Original Silence and follows last year's The First Original Silence. This new one was recorded at a September 28, 2006 performance at Rome, Italy's Brancaleone, and is due out on CD, LP, and digital August 11 from the Smalltown Superjazzz imprint. That cool cover art up there is by Kim Hiorthoy.

Original Silence have but a single gig forthcoming: a set at Oslo, Norway's Oya Festival on August 7. But Thurston, well, you know that dude's got bands for days, and those bands have gigs aplenty coming up. As for O'Rourke, he's got a new album in the pipeline and a bunch of recently reissued old albums out now on Drag City.

The Second Original Silence:

01 Argument Left Hanging - Rubber Cement
02 A Sweeping Parade of Optimism - Blood Strea
03 High trees & a Few Birds - The Doll's Reflection
04 Crepescular Refractions - Mystery Eye

Sonic Youth:

07-04 New York, NY - Battery Park *
08-04 Leucate, France - Les Méditerranéennes Festival
08-05 Lokeren, Belgium - Lokerse Festival
08-07 Oslo, Norway - Øya Festival
08-08 Gothenburg, Sweden - Way Out West Festival
08-09 Saint-Nazaire, France - Escales Festival

* with the Feelies

Thurston Moore:

05-31 New Haven, CT - People's Center *
09-19 Monticello, NY - Kutshers Country Club (My Bloody Valentine ATP) #
09-27 New York, NY - Stone (with Northampton Wools)

* with Ryan Sawyer Duo
# performing Psychic Hearts

available at Volcanic Tongue now (along with a shitload of other interesting stuff I wish I could afford):
Original Silence
The Second Original Silence
Smalltown Superjazz STSJ-144
CD
£10.99

Latest release for this pan-Atlantic free jazz/skronk rock supergroup featuring Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke, Mats Gustafsson, Massimo Pupillo, Terrie Ex and Paal Nilssen-Love. The rhythm section actually keep it pretty tight here, so the sound is closer to No Wave than Fire Music, with fast guitar patterns shredded by saxophone in a way that orbits the early Teenage Jesus/James Chance jams, albeit with a bunch more technical muscle. When they do up anchor, it’s kind of psychedelic.

Original Silence:
The Second Original Silence


[Smalltown Superjazz; 2008]
Rating: 8.0 If the success of a sophomore album should be measured by whether it includes a potential hit (it shouldn't, but humor me here), then The Second Original Silence has struck gold. Not that a six-piece improvisational noise/jazz/rock ensemble has much chance of scoring chart action, but if it did, opener "Argument Left Hanging - Rubber Cement" would fire a bullet into any top 10 it came close to. Shooting out of the gate with scratchy guitar, gut-rocking bass, and a stuttering beat, the track at first resembles a Captain Beefheart jam, then hits shades of electric-era Miles Davis, and ends with a trail of dense electronics. Throughout, Mats Gustafsson's sax wraps the din into a ball of rhythmic noise, suggesting it's actually possible to dance to free-form improv.
The rest of the album (pristinely recorded at a 2005 Italy performance) doesn't match that crackling open, but it's still pretty great. And while it may not have the relentless energy of the group's debut, it trumps that effort in terms of sonic variety. Full-throttle sprints trade jabs with sparser stretches, and recognizable sounds blend with noise so abstract, it actually gets scary. Much of this diversity comes from the increased prominence of Jim O'Rourke's electronics. Pushed forward in the high-speed mix, his ripples and slashes are somewhat stock, but the way he deploys them gives each piece tangible shape. Connecting the high-end of Gustafsson and guitarists Thurston Moore and Terrie Ex to the low-end of bassist Massimo Pupillo and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, O'Rourke strings constellations out of his colleague's starry sounds.
His strongest moment comes on "High Trees & a Few Birds - The Doll's Reflection", a 19-minute piece in which he serves as de facto bandleader. It opens with five minutes of O'Rourke solo, swinging from bursts of noise to cricket-like ambience. When his bandmates each get shots at splattering on his sonic canvas, they all dole out their sounds with disciplined restraint. There was nothing quite this tense on the group's debut, and it works to near-perfection. Gustafsson's slow moans in particular mesh tightly with O'Rourke's blanketing sheen-- during the ending climax, the pair's dying-animal screech is unnerving.
The Second Original Silence concludes with "Crepescular Refractions - Mystery Eye", ramping back up into a pounding jam akin to the album's opening salvo. Where The First Original Silence was one sustained shot of adrenaline, its sequel shows the group can travel in an arc as well as straight line. Which makes the prospect of what new shape they might take on a potential Third Original Silence that much more enticing.
