Re: Digest Number 69
- A friend of mine recently brought over a copy of the newest Porter Ricks CD
from Mille Plateaux that he reviewed for _interface_ and i'm looking to see
if anyone can offer any info on this label: other bands, general sound of
bands on the label, etc.

Do yourself a favor and pick up any compilation on Mille Plateaux, for example
the excellent In
Memoriam: Gilles Deleuze, or the Modulations & Transformations series, or even
any of the excellent
Electric Ladyland comps on Force Inc.
You also would do no wrong investigating the stuff on Chain Reaction (porter
ricks has at least one
album on this label called biokinetics...but there a slew of other great
artists, as well - all very
minimalist type stuff)
I've been listening to a lot of stuff in this arena lately. As far as other
similar artists, you
can do no wrong buying anything off the aforementioned labels, in my opinion.
I've just sort of
discovered all of this stuff, and I'm now buying records that were released four
or five years ago,
so I'm a bit new to these labels myself. I'm sure there are some other veterans
on here that could
break it down more for you. There was a good article on Mille Plateaux in a
past Wire. They have
the article online at the website.
I've been recently enjoying Gas, Various Artists, Restgeraeusch, Global
Pluramon, Scanner, David Shea, Kerosene, etc...etc...
