Ingram Marshall, Neil Campbell, Toshimaru Nakamura interviews
In the latest issue of Perfect Sound Forever
<http://www.perfectsoundforever.com>, you'll find (among other things):
Makes a noiseful joy- one of the masterminds behind Vibracathedral
Orchestra and collaborators with almost all of the English underground, he
still finds time to share his thoughts with Jon Dale.
Italy exports drone-rock- don't let the queasy name dissuade you. They're
better ambassadors for their homeland than a plate or pasta primavera
though they don't go down as easily. Interview with Dave Lang (who liked
them enough to release their music on his own Lexicon Devil label).
A collective sigh of dada-rock- in the spirt of Blue Cheer, "After Bathing
at the Baxter's," Chrome, Magma, this San Francisco 'group' spreads it
gospel through CD-R's.
Electronic music, no tropes- in a recent interview, this unique composer
describes his links to Indonesian music, non-worship of technology,
so-called minimalists and the connection between music and 'spiritual matters.'
Sound student of the mixing board- Toyko improviser finds the best
instrument to mix is the mixer itself. Interview with William Meyer.
Loose collective performance art- more a concept(ual) than a band, this San
Francisco 'group' creates and re-creates all manner of configurations for
their 'shows.' Domenic Maltempi valiantly tries to untangle their story
and almost succeeds.
Mark Clifford's indie techno-rock- before Seefeel dissolved into bands such
as Disjecta and Scala, they created an unique niche in the UK
underground. In a rare lengthy interview, Mark Clifford tells his/their
Neo no wave? Part of hardcore's 2nd wave, Jose Marmeleira describes them as
representing "a true contamination between the "low art" of aggressive
music aesthetics with the 'high art' legitimatization of avant, improv
music and art performance." If they sound half as good or interesting as
that, read on.
We're always looking for good writers and/or ideas so let us know if you
have anything to share.
