        hey there,

        this is a short message which might be interesting for the german readers
        of this list:

        david toop is coming to germany for some "EXOTICA" lectures and djing.

        find the exact dates and a short german (sorry!) info below.

        greetings from planet rock

        DAVID TOOP
        lecture & djing tour

        EXOTICA_FABRICATED SOUNDSCAPES & THE REAL WORLD

        27.09. d-weingarten linse
        28.09. d-münchen bongo bar
        29.09. d-hamburg yoko mono
        30.09. d-hamburg symposium "sound aka space" (podiumsdiskussion)
        01.10. d-bielefeld ajz
        02.10. d-frankfurt cooky´s
        03.10. d-koeln popdom

        der godfather des europäischen musikjournalismus ist back für eine kurze
        tour durch deutschland. toop, der erst als elektroniker, flöter und
        multiinstrumentalist in der kreativen experimentalszene englands tätig war
        - u.a. in der zusammenarbeit mit fred frith und john zorn, fand erst über
        umwege zum schreiben. mit kumpel steve beresford suchte er schon früh die
        kürzeste verbindung zwischen pop und avantgarde, u.a. als "general strike",
        er nahm das bahnbrechende prince far i album "close dub encounters vol.
        III" mit onu mastermind adrian sheerwood und den slits auf, bevor er 1984
        das allererste buch über hiphop veröffentlichte: "rap attack", inzwischen
        in der dritten, aktualisierten auflage vorliegend, war eine revolution und
        leitete historisch akribisch die kultur des hiphop aus den oralen
        traditionen der griots westafrikas ab. durch seine arbeit für das britische
        wire, spin und selbst die alterwürdige times konnte sich toop als wichtige
        stimme der europäischen musikkritik behaupten. 1995 wurde "ocean of sound"
        veröffentlicht, das die musikgeschichte des 20. jahrhunderts kreuz und quer
        las, ausgegehend von debussy bis hin zu aphex twin. die sprache wurde in
        diesem buch selbst zum süchtigmachenden sound - so schreibt sonst keiner
        über musik. den ekletizistischen standpunkt von "ocean of sound" schreibt
        "exotica" fort, und so dürfen wir wir auf die von musik unterlegten
        lesungen toops und seinen dj set mehr als gespannt sein. passend zum buch,
        das in mai in london bei serpent´s tail veröffentlicht wurde, erschien die
        compilation "hot pants idol", die lesungen toops (aus "exotica") mit musik
        von bill laswell, scanner, toop usw. kontrastiert. die spex wird die tour
        präsentieren!

            Very easy:
            1000 Fragments (CCI), his first release, is a wild cut-up collage, with
            occasional bits of sinewave madness. Masterpiece.
            +/- (Touch) is just sinewaves, very geometrical, and also a
            masterpiece.
            0�C (Touch) goes back to the style of Fragments, but even more refined,
            and some wonderful droney-passages as well. His third masterpiece.

            Get all of these first, but start with +/-.
            Time/Space, a double 3" cd, and the Mort Aux Vaches sessions, both on
            Staalplaat,IMO are not as divine as the 3 fullengths, but still among
            the greateast music mankind has come up with yet.

            Cheers,
            DeeDee

              I have not heard 1000 fragments. How easy is it to find??? I have the
              other two cds. The first i got was "0.C" .
              Pretty amazing i thought. Lots of little cut ups and blips. Quite
              ryhtmical in his own way. He definately has his own style. And yes, some
              long drone tracks towards the end.

              I recently got "+/-". Not too different from the (later) "0.c", but with
              a few more droning parts. I would still have to say that "0.C" is my
              favourite, simply because it was the first thing i have heard from him!

              Graeme.
