Saw them last night in Rotterdam. They were alright but I wouldn't say you missed a whole lot. I had a feeling they have more in them than what comes out on stage and I had a similar feeling the last time they played here, about 4-5 years ago.

I was considering going to Swing Fest as well.
I think I am looking forward to Container most.
His live shows look great.

Selvhenter
Cafe Oto
Friday 19 April 2013 - 8pm
Tickets : £7 adv / £8 on the door


 


The Danish band SELVHENTER is quickly becoming one of the most exciting new experimental bands in Europe. Their unique sound combines the energy of rock with free improvisation and noise but also draws inspiration from the percussion music of Africa and Southeast Asia, and modern minimalist composition. In their music, the two drummers create strong polyrhythmic patterns while the horns and violin develop simple patterns of melody. In addition, both saxophone, trombone and violin often use effect pedals to distort and manipulate their sounds. The result is beautiful, aggressive and good for dancing. SELVHENTER's live concerts are always curious, focused and full of energy.

SELVHENTER is: Sonja LaBianca (saxophone), Maria Bertel (trombone), Maria Diekmann (violin), Jaleh Negari (drums) and Anja Jacobsen (drums). The five members of the band come from some of the interesting bands on the Copenhagen experimental music scene, such as Pinkunoizu, Havens Fugle, Chimes & Bells, Gud Er Kvinde, Valby Vokalgruppe, Kirsten Ketsjer and Choir Of Young Believers.

SELVHENTER was formed in 2007 as a trio of violin, saxophone and trombone. In 2008 they expanded with two drummers. The band released their first full length album in 2012 under the title “Frk. B. Fricka”. It was produced by legendary guitarist and film music composer Peter Peter and was nominated for the Nordic Music Prize 2012.

In 2010, the members of SELVHENTER founded the art collective and record label EGET VÆRELSE (a room of one's own) – a platform for the projects they create together or individually.

How is it poetic justice? What's the story behind that?

I got the impression that there isn't a single person in Japan that Nanjo hasn't pissed off, mainly due to his releasing loads of people's music on La Musica without asking them first and without paying them.

The band now seems to be called "Makoto Kawabata's Mainliner", which I can't say I'm very keen on.

Anyway, here's a photo.

This, plus that La Musica releases were priced about £20 for a CD-R

I just read some comment saying that Nanjo has even toured the US playing as Mainliner once without Kawabata... dunno if that's true, but if it is I could imagine that pissing off Kawabata enough to hire some replacement dude with a Johnny Ramone haircut instead. But then it seems even more unnecessary to bring Mainliner back to life in the first place.

Plastic Crimewave, supported by Matthew Shaw
The Gorilla Store, 1-3 Rivington Street, EC2A 3DT

FREE ENTRY
BYO
From 8pm.

Plastic Crimewave (born Steven H. Krakow) is a Chicago-based illustrator and writer, avant-garde musician, music historian and impresario.

He is the editor of Drag City-published magazine Galactic Zoo Dossier, eponymous frontman for Plastic Crimewave Sound, founder of the Million Tongues Festival, and Vision Celestial Guitarkestra.

He writes and illustrates the "Secret History of Chicago Music" comic in the Chicago Reader and co-hosts WGN-AM's Secret History of Chicago Music series. He runs Drag City imprint label, Galactic Zoo Disk.

Supporting Plastic Crimewave will be Matthew Shaw. Matthew is one of the most fascinating figures on the UK drone underground, collaborating with thinkers like Brian Lavelle (as Fougou) and Andrew Paine (as The Blue Tree) while releasing music under his own name and the Tex La Homa pseudonym via a host of labels, including his own Apollolaan Recordings. His music delves deep in Hidden Reverse traditions, incorporating specific environmental soundings of occult landscapes into beautiful drone works that advance the oracular/hallucinogenic English underground tradition of Coil, Richard Youngs, Andrew Chalk et al.

NAZORANAI (KEIJI HAINO/ STEPHEN O'MALLEY/ OREN AMBARCHI)

SCALA
275 Pentonville Road, King´s Cross
London N1 9NL
Doors 7pm
£15 adv / wegottickets available here ticket web here

NAZORANAI


NAZORANAI is the dark matter-heavy power trio of Keiji Haino (guitar/synth/vox), Oren Ambarchi (drums) and Sunn O)))’s Stephen O’Malley (Bass).

Inaugurated with a 2011 concert in Holland, the group’s third and most recent show was captured to consciousness-smashing effect on last year’s self-titled LP (Ideologic Organ/Editions Mego). As with the wider range of Haino’s ever-evolving stable of ensembles the Dark Master is very much at the helm in Nazaronai, but this trio still marks a clear and thrilling departure from past configurations.

Fushitsusha, whilst highly fluid, maintain a stout basis of blues-derived ‘classic’-era transatlantic heavy rock, from Sabbath and Hendrix to Floyd and Amon Duul. The output of Haino/O’Rourke/Ambarchi, meanwhile, has a meticulous but deliriously wild, ever-accelerating, no-handbrake-fitted freedom and intensity.

Nazaronai, in contrast, construct a transcendent amalgam of motorik metal and ferociously unfettered space-rock. The blood-deep musical kinship that O’Malley and Ambarchi have forged through Sunn O))) and Gravetemple allows them to lay down a transfixing, remorseless, march-of-an-undead-host fundament of bass and drums from which Haino-san is able to cut jaw-slackeningly loose, fissuring forth from the pit of Hades before setting the overall controls for the other side of the Kuiper Belt.

113 DALSTON LANE
T G GONDARD + GAEL MOISSONNIER + CHORA
Thursday, 18th April

TG Gondard is currently based in brussels. First known as “TG” and active in the french underground since the late 90′s, he (Thibault Gondard) has explored many musical worlds, through his own melancholic lo-fi filter. His current output can be seen as an urban post-R’n'B world full of dirty samples and syncopated beats. His debut, “Avontuur” was released last year on Not Not Fun, and its follower is a new tape album of french electronic songs entitled “bye-bye waterloo”

Gael Moissonnier is based between Lyon and Brussels and very musically active in both cities. His solo shows utilise the crisp warbling of analogue synthesis in an enticing tussle with gnarly tape and voice manipulation.

Chora from London, are finally playing at 113 after many halted attempts. The duo use a multitude of instruments and objects to open the gates of a junkyard gamelan vibe of which only they have access. We’re excite to have them on the bill with a couple of their many collaborators.

Bee Mask
Café Oto
Saturday 1 June 2013
Tickets : £10 adv, £12 on the door

Bee Mask (est. 2004) is a project of Chris Madak and a vehicle for an intricate and deeply warped idea of modern electronic music which draws equally on the ecstatic human/machine couplings of 1970s west coast synthesis, the fractured gloss of sampler concrète, the iridescent thumbprint of High Minimalism on the humid throb of trunk bass, and the barely- sublimated currents of vertigo and terror that course beneath the most unsettling moments in the canon of home-recorded psychedelia.

The 2011 reissue of Canzoni dal Laboratorio del Silenzio Cosmico on the Spectrum Spools imprint of Editions Mego revealed Bee Mask’s place on the leading edge of a world in which distinctions between “head music” and “body music” no longer apply. In the wake of Canzoni and the double LP retrospective Elegy for Beach Friday, Chris has performed throughout the United States, Canada, Australia, Japan, and Europe and completed commissioned electroacoustic works dedicated to The Sonic Arts Union and John Cage. In 2012, Bee Mask debuted on the Room40 label with the Vaporware / Scanops 12″ and returned to Spectrum Spools with the full-length When We Were Eating Unripe Pears.
