NOT REVIEWING ART PROPERLY SINCE 1066
ASTPAI / CODES / CURXES / EMILY CAPELL / FALSE-HEADS / HYPERBUBBLE / TANKUS THE HENGE / THE SADDEST LANDSCAPE / THE SEA KINGS / VOMITFACE
Words and noises come to us from the USA and they are sent, transmitted and piped over by KFR Radio and they do something called a 'KFR Radio Sampler' and there are loads of tracks on it, most of them are shit, especially the one from the Shed Spiders, but we Percy Veered and found a wholly mental and uplifting collision between early 50's rock and garage hip hop. The good guys here are DJ Tanaboi and JC Styles and they do this thing called "Ready To Rock" and it's called that because they can't be arsed to write 'to' and because they're damn fine at the cutting and pasting magic that very roughly stitches both ends of black musical culture together. There is an endearingly visual free version on Youtube, click and click and click again is our advice.
HIP ROCK AND HOP N ROLL TOGETHER AT LAST!
WEIGHT GAIN 'WUTHERING WOMAN" ASTOUNDS MEDIA BY SINGING AGAIN
DAWN FRENCH IS COVERED IN STAINS
The hysterically privileged, well connected, appallingly middle classed home counties gel, Kate Bush was and is a genuine and genuinely talented artist and she has now confounded the entire music industry by resurfacing after many years and many bars of chocolate to sing in tune, introduce new material that stands up well against her earlier work and, god forgive the poor bitch, turn in some dead good live performances. As many as two people have complained that Ms Bush didn't include "Wuthering Heights" in her set list, but we are neither of them.
"STALINIST BURGLAR ALARM A TREAT FOR THE EARS!" DECLARES ART ENTHUSIAST
PROXIMITY AL-AHM GIVES THIS OFF
Acclaimed thereminist, Carolina Eyck pauses to masturbate the Invisible Man...
Of course, you all know that the Theremin was originally invented by Lev Termen and intended to be used as proximity sensor. In plain, this means that it's a device that makes noises of varying weirdness that depend on the position and proximity of a person to it, bits of it, it's complicated, but it has a range of sounds that have been used to both decorate and generate musical composition, including the one we're quite keen on at the moment; "Improvisations For Theremin & Piano" by Carolina Eyck and Christopher Tarnow. It's a stunning piece of work and while the Theremin is always going to be an instrument that adds cinematic elements, this time we're away from the goofy and the gothic and luxuriating in adult composition and when you buy the album from Butterscotch Records on the 18th November you will hear, immediately, that Christopher Tarnow and his piano have been very equal partners in a compelling creation.
I told you this would happen!
HATE CORNER HATE
Things, people and concepts that should be shot in the face, a lot.
Strictly Come British X-Factor Bake Off.
All bands who call themselves 'The' something or another and all bands who think that proximity to Hoxton means anything, apart from the fact it's the home of shit music.
Any and every artist farted from a 'Fame Academy'.
