SCHISMS – “SPEECH COPY RAP MASTER”

 

Schisms are a new trio consisting of Bridget Hayden, Richard Chamberlain and Sam McLoughlin. Steeped in rehearsal room ambience and tape saturation, these recordings filter a 50s rock’n’roll sensibility through a noise aesthetic: The Dead C playing the Back to the Future high school dance. Free jams and fuzz-obscured songs from a timeless limbo where VU boots are the basic currency.

OUTTAKES FROM “PURE TOUCH…”

At one point “Pure Touch Only From Now On, They Said So” (Early Music, 2018) was going to be a double LP.

This would have been on the second disc:

 

 

 “Astonishingly spectral blues. It’s so clear and yet there’s this huge layer of silence in the mix that makes everything quietly intense. It’s like listening to classic blues recordings in an opium dream, Favorite track: he put a weight on me.”

SOCIAL ENTROPY ****CANCELLED****

Marcia Bassett (Zaimph, Un, GHQ)  has created a sound collage using recordings of six female musicians reading spoken word responses on the theme of “Social Entropy”. It will be premiered as part of an installation at “Human Resources”, Los Angeles.
