Blorp Esette Gazette Volumes Three & Four by V/a

V/a

Blorp Esette Gazette Volumes Three & Four
Gilgongo

***The history of the Blorp Esette, which chronicles the output of the Los Angeles Free Music Society and other entities in its orbit, dates back to 1977, with the release of Blorp Esette Volume One LP (soon to be reissued by Superior Viaduct) and Volume 2 2LP in 1980. Volumes 3 and 4 emerged in 1999, packaged in a boxset with the previous volumes. The Blorp Esette Gazette first appeared with Volume 1 & 2 in 2013. Intended to be an on-going series, it was paused after the passing of Transparency label owner Michael Sheppard who was co-releasing the CDs w/ LAFMS members. While the original Esette is an obligatory who's-who of LAFMS (Doo-Dooettes, Smegma, Le Forte Four), the Gazettes have an even more sprawling reach. Compiled by Ace Farren Ford and Ju Suk Reet Meate, Volumes 3&4 features: Michael Uhlenkott, {AN} EeL, Ace & Duce, Control Unit, Sissy Spacek, Kommissar Hjuler und Frau Mama Baer, Million Brazillians, Lee Rockey, Trance Farmers, Keith Mitchell, Split Second, Mr. Foon, Electric Bill Robinson, Testing Vault, Donkey Flybye, James Dewey, Eric Zann, Threed, Purple Panther Ensemble, Lynn Carey, Collide Burger with Chicken Larry and Patrick Lubow, Dr. Amazon, Io, GX Jupitter-Larsen & Ace Farren Ford, Dan and Letha Rodman Melchoir, Harold Schroeder, Erica Rawlings. Art direction by John Wiese & Ace Farren Ford, with collages from Cody Brant featured throughout the release. Each "issue" of the Gazette features a visual artist (Vol. 1 was Ace Farren Ford, Vol. 2 was Rick Potts).

***CCTK Music combines Gabriella Isaac's exploitative use of laptop as feedback loop / sound source / physical device and James Fella's electro-acoustic / tape as instrument approach. The duo incorporates each other's material in real time (on Side A), cutting the content onto 6 singles-sided reference lacquers. The lacquers were used to assemble a collage in a performance setting in late 2019, and again in a studio setting for Side B. The result is a record that is both scathing but at times harmonious, scattered, and dense but with enough air for the individual contributions to still have room to breathe. Mastered by John Wiese.

Formerly On Fluorescent Paper by Soft Shoulder

Soft Shoulder

Formerly On Fluorescent Paper
Gilgongo

Formerly on Fluorescent Paper delivers 14 jaunts culled from the artist’s tape soup collage of several generations’ worth of punk and no-wave adjacent music. Be it jagged, angular, short tracks… atonal layers in otherwise listener-friendly settings… repetitive string clang aside gurgling synth and flailing reed-bite… Soft Shoulder continues to be the primary vehicle for Fella’s take on songwriting, in whatever the loosely defined genre(s) may be. However, compared to Not The New One (an eclectic collection of various incarnations), Contextual Depreciation (performance and practice tapes from the current group) and the recent Copy Machine Fall Down 7” (an abstract, long-distance-collaboration) …Formerly On Fluorescent Paper finds Fella alone. Written and recorded in the fever-dream of late 2020. Mastered by John Dieterich. (STREET DATE - 7/09/2021)

***A screeching smash of searing grit and demolished shock from the trio of Blankenship / Mumma / Wiese, which can be identified as a distinct subgroup within the Sissy Spacek discography, responsible for such carnage as Wreck (2013), Basement (2014), and Slow Move (2017). BMW stands as a sharp-edged monument in the trio’s advancing decay, culled from a session at Blankenship's high-security Bronson studio and utilizing the equipment and environment that fueled sessions by LHD, White Gold, and The Cherry Point. Limited edition, partially metalized CD housed in a 6-panel digipack, featuring a series of detailed collages by Wiese.

Soft Shoulder

Copy Machine Fall Down
Gilgongo

***Compiled by James Fella in late 2020 using remotely recorded components: Side A features the current Phoenix-based line-up (Caleb Dailey, Josh Rodriguez) of the long running junk-kraut post-punk group offering a constructed and dubbed out single while the flip finds a much more far-our free/faux-improvised medley with members old and new, near and far: Paul Arambula (Chandails, Vegetable - Berlin), John Dieterich (Deerhoof - Albuquerque), Hiromi Inada (Nicfit, Free City Noise – Nagoya) Seth Kasselman (Warn Climate - Phoenix).

Building A Better Void by Nordile, Max

Nordile, Max

Building A Better Void
Gilgongo

***Max Nordile (Preening, Violence Creeps, Uzi Rash, et al.) tosses Gilgongo 30 minutes of trudging, free-form sprawl that draws unassuming and collateral reference points (in the label’s mind) to a highly regarded catalog of outsiders that spans decades (Jandek, Little Howlin’ Wolf, Nihilist Spasm Band). It’s an honor to challenge any listener, with Building a Better Void.  “Max Nordile has a patented collage method. In this day, I almost hate to say it’s perhaps a distinctly American sound, like squawks from the rubber room. Although, this is sharply not a conversation between "Mattie" and "Hattie" concerning the "Wooly Bully" and the desirability of developing dancing skills (with no attempt made to synthesize these divergent topics). What you’re listening to is a tangled mass, a phone call from a scribbled area code, herking and jerking its way off the map. It’s catchy, it’s bent.  After it said so much to me, I returned to the record, and then again and again. “Thanks so much,” I said to it, like it is said in the divine hand of “Diligent Pores.” And once more I’m gripped into powerful clang at the intersection of joy, mystery & abrasion.  It is mercurial; an icy slip wherein the listener is absolutely unable to get the balance or footing to stand upright for all of thirty minutes. Building a Better Void is a jittering slob but a true testimonial to the San Pablo blocks of trauma-cracked sidewalks of Ishmael Reed’s Blues City: Oakland, brawling...

Not The New One by Soft Shoulder

Soft Shoulder

Not The New One
Gilgongo

***Not The New One delivers a dose of SOFT SHOULDER which is similar to 2017’s Song and Intermissions LP: sharp bursts which reference no wave, free improvisation, abstract electronics and riot grrrl from various configurations of the group: this time around with members of Oakland’s NO BABIES, Montreal’s FILTHY GRIN, GAY KISS from Phoenix, Berlin’s PAUL ARAMBULA (CHANDAILS, VEGETABLE), etc. Sandwiched between a new 7” and LP from early 2020, and a forthcoming 7” and LP in early 2021, Not The New One ties up loose ends from the second half of the 2010’s. Recorded sporadically between 2015–2019 in various warehouses, practice spaces and bedrooms in the Phoenix area.

***"ACE FARREN FORD, DENNIS DUCK and JU SUK REET MEATE (three original members) are joined by ROCK ’N’ ROLL JACKIE (35 years in the band), JOHN WIESE (approximately 10 years), and a cast of others form the current third phase SMEGMA. The personnel of this album consists of this line-up plus CHARLIE MUMMA, a member of SISSY SPACEK since 2008. The source material of Ballast was recorded at home and on the Los Angeles radio station Dublab, but what we hear is not exactly Smegma and Sissy Spacek performing together as a live group. Wiese’s production of the recording is a kind of un-doing of the live group playing, forging it into a new collage of sound. The title of the album, Ballast, refers to a weight on a ship which improves it’s stability, but it is also a term for an electrical component that regulates electricity so as to not destroy the other components. It’s double meaning fits between the cover art and the collage process which is constantly partitioning and interrupting the elements of sound."—Takuya Sakaguchi, from the liner notes.

***While it’s relatively easy to refer to SANDY EWEN's use of guitar as unconventional or abstract, the true nature of her work is much more exploratory in nature. Without relying on the use of effects or looping, the instrument itself functions as a canvas for Ewen’s ever-evolving arsenal of objects and ever-expanding techniques. Ewen has collaborated and performed with everyone from Henry Kaiser to Roscoe Mitchell, from Jaap Blonk to Lydia Lunch, from Keith Rowe to Tamio Shiraishi, from Damon Smith to Id M Theft Able, from To Carter to Weasel Walter, the list feels endless. Ewen’s drive to create and perform is rivaled by few, and a healthy body of releases documents much of her work in both solo and group settings. However, You Win, represents her first solo appearance on the full length, vinyl format.

Contextual Depreciation by Soft Shoulder

Soft Shoulder

Contextual Depreciation
Gilgongo

***A collection of live recordings and practice tapes from JAMES FELLA's long running junk-kraut / no-wave / post-punk group. The band has been releasing a steady output of 7"s and LPs since the mid-2000s with this release capturing one of the more stable lineups of an otherwise chaotic rotating cast of musicians from throughout the world of underground music in Arizona, Oakland, Berlin, etc. Heavy on the repetition, tangents of improvised drone and a few abstract tape collages round out a cohesive document of the group from 2018-2019. Each LP comes with a variety of different inserts / prints and download. Edition of 300.

Aerosol Can Stand by Soft Shoulder

Soft Shoulder

Aerosol Can Stand
Gilgongo

***Aerosol Can Stand finds JAMES FELLA's long running “post-punk / no-wave / junk-kraut” group in a rare moment of pop sensibility (subject to objection and critique). Recorded spur-of-the-moment during practice, these two songs are a snapshot of Soft Shoulder as a trio (with JOSH RODRIGUEZ and Moone Records’ CALEB DAILEY) in late 2019. However, the same variety of haphazard approaches and bedroom-style recording methods which Fella is accustomed to using when processing songs alone were utilized here with the full band. Everything captured on the second take: microphones taped to broken pieces of drum kit hardware and whatever else was sitting around on the floor, overblown overdubs done with a faulty reverb unit, synth later dropped in as an afterthought directly before a maniacal full-volume mix-down in the same rehearsal space later that week. Comparisons aside and credit due as collateral: RIYL The Fall, The Homosexuals, etc. Edition of 600 (includes download and every copy comes with a unique print made using components from the artwork).

***The work of JOHN COLLINS MCCORMICK straddles sculpture and music by using sound as material to highlight the ability of sound to change scale through visual and sonic rhythms and textures. What is heard is generated by small objects, percussion and electronics—interactions occurring in the realm of art and noise: a McCormick performance may consist of repurposed motors, clutter jostling on exposed speakers or something familiar from your office rolling across floor in an unfamiliar way. Ad For Nails functions as a sort of audio diary, finding these types of sounds woven between field recordings, captured conversation and old-fashioned drum kit. McCormick’s LP offers a peak into his sonic world and how these pieces of it may be heard (including the types of moments in which we instinctively feel there may be nothing to hear at all).

Imminent Fold by Waxy Tomb

Waxy Tomb

Imminent Fold
Gilgongo

***Amorphous and perplexing, JULES LITMAN-CLEPER's work as WAXY TOMB can incidentally incite a notion of chaos or randomness in the foreground while expressing a series of distilled dialogs that are best understood while digesting the project as a whole. On a surface level, Imminent Fold may seem like a playful exhibition of alien commentary—guided by colliding textures and electronic anomalies. This material, in conjunction with her visuals, functions as a field report on the intrusion of industrial and urban landscapes and digital processes on the fabric weaved by natural structure. Jules Litman-Cleper is a Bay Area native and has been offering multi-media performances and releasing work under the Waxy Tomb guise since 2011. Imminent Fold is the first appearance on the LP format and is a 40-minute dive into this petri dish, with a high-quality book of imagery created as an equally important visual accompaniment to the record. RIYL: the place that is slightly further out than the most left field releases from the early years of Rough Trade, Subterranean or Mute, while finding sporadic camaraderie the likes of Laurie Anderson, Metalux and Inflatable Boy Clams.

***While the hypothetical range of what the listener might expect from a record of free-improvised guitar playing is understandably gigantic, it’s not very often that what is heard so easily navigates across such a vast terrain. In their most often observed environments (TASHI DORJI's relentlessly frequent solo and collaborative releases, JOHN DIETERICH in the untamable and uniquely enchanting DEERHOOF), both artists regularly redefine both themselves and what “guitar” playing may or may not be. On Midden, there is communication and expression that transcends the notion that two people can simply cross paths and play guitar together. Plenty of people do this, but few intersect so naturally and comfortably in this abstract of a context. While captured in the live setting, Midden is not the result of weeks of touring, fine tuning ideas and patterns. Instead, the LP is merely a document which archives the final of three chance meetings, in which two people engage in a natural dialog that at times is jagged and jarring while at others is mesmerizing and beautiful. Unpredictable yet completely organic, such a language is a joy to hear. (STREET DATE - 9/06/2019)

Is In Unsamble

Is The Belly / In The Belly
Gilgongo

***JU SUK REET MEATE & OBLIVIA (SMEGMA, THE TENSES), BRENNA MURPHY & BIRCH COOPER (MSHR), CHIARA GIOVANDO (HARRIUS), JOHANNES LUND & TOBIAS KIRTSTEIN are the IS IN UNSAMBLE. Is the Belly / In the Belly: an old fashioned “jam session” with a deep but distant, natural room sound. Fluttering alto sax and calm, staccato trumpet slowly find their way: spelunking towards a center in which the organ / voice / homemade synth / radio / percussion blend and find their way back to the nervous outer world. They converge with strange but riveting vocals, slide guitar and record skips—mingled with the sounds of dinosaurs canoodling. Song forms rise and fall back against the river-like surface tension: a roaring tale is told, then slowly fades away to nothingness. The jacket art is a collaboration between Ju Suk’s squiggly line drawings and lines / angles / photocopy artifacts and lettering from JAMES FELLA. Recorded September 2015 at Smegma’s Studio in Portland.

Saturn In The Mirror
Gilgongo

***GERALD BIGGS developed FILTHY GRIN as a living sound journal to document explorations in the sonification of sculpture and body movement. Currently located in Montreal, over the past decade he has self-released a series of cassettes, performed as a member of PIGEON RELIGION, collaborated with various artists (J.S. Aurelius, James Fella, etc.) as a sound engineer, in live performances, and through sound design. Saturn in the Mirror collects two long-appreciated pieces from many years ago: beautiful and textured material that sees colliding aspects of ambient music, drone, analog synthesis and musique concrète. LP design and concept by JS AURELIUS and collage by Gerald Biggs. RIYL: Yellow Swans, Emeralds. Download includes an excerpt / edit of "Saturn in the Mirror," which was featured on The Wire Tapper 47 (included with The Wire's August 2018 issue (#414). Released in an edition of 300, this is the first full-length vinyl appearance for Filthy Grin.

***Gilgongo Records is pleased to announce Continuous Hole, a collaborative album by DREW DANIEL and JOHN WIESE. The fruit of over ten years of home recordings in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Baltimore, Continuous Hole melds improvisation and musique concrète composition into a uniquely sweaty document of labor-intensive rhythm. A finger puzzle of reconciled opposites: lockstep structure and constant flux. Many of the tracks reflect the unique blending of the disparate backgrounds of its creators: on “Abhorred Shears,” “Sleek Disorder” and “Cosmic Joke,” the relentlessly variable source material is relegated to precisely timed gated forms and patterns. Without using any sampling or MIDI sequencing, the rhythmic cuts evoke the tempo/BPM of footwork, juke or gabber, but they are constructed entirely from volcanic, gnarled abstraction, and eschew typical genre elements.  “Progress Bar” goes from frantic cuts to weightless slo-mo freefall and back to frenzy. Moving from mayhem to menace, “Surprise” concludes the album with ominous flutters of a pedal steel guitar and the sound of a dog’s toenails scraping a stone floor. In the final milliseconds of the song, the dog leaps for the listener’s throat. Raw yet precise, it’s a dynamic conclusion to an album of strong contrasts from two American artists discovering common ground in the joy of frenzied cutting.  A prolific recording artist and visual artist with an extensive discography under his own name, and with grindcore stalwarts Sissy Spacek, John Wiese is currently based in Cleveland. One half of the electronic band Matmos and all...

***BACK IN STOCK!!!  Recorded during Ina/GRM’s 2016 Présences Électronique Festival in Paris, JOHN WIESE's Escaped Language is a concise and calculated piece which slowly evolved in various settings over a number of years. While 2015’s Deviate From Balance 2xLP was expansive and chronicled performances and work employing many other musicians, here Wiese dissects and reassembles portions of his vocabulary alone. Simultaneously dense and sparse, delicate and abrasive, free and tactical, the resulting recording stands as a substantial document of his approach to sound, twenty-five years into his prolific tenure.

***Disjointed no-wave, monotonous post-punk, a couple of songs that come as close to “pop” as possible and a handful of intermissions throughout: the new LP from Soft Shoulder collects tracks from 2009-2015. While the group is now on its 19th line-up, most recordings have historically been James Fella, solo. This continues to be the case here (with most tracking done at Gilgongo Records HQ and defunct Phoenix warehouse, Sound Kontrol), but there are collaborations with many regular members of the “live group”(s) and also a track which builds on a Silver Apples recording created by Simeon in 1998 while adding synth to a percussion session from 1968.

Olivia Neutron-John

Injury Train And I’m Never Getting Off It & Vulnerability
Gilgongo

***BACK IN PRINT WITH NEW COVER ART IN HIGH GLOSS JACKETS "RAW, GLITTERING, PSYCHEDELIC... OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN, is a NON-BINARY, POST-BRO one person music/dance declaration of war on the accepted and the expected. The Olivia Neutron-John LP won't be seen in any record stores. They won't know where to put it. There isn't any card, section, genre, that can contain it The grooves barely fit on the album even… this is a record unlike any other. In an era when groups are formalistic recitations of previous groups, loathe to show any personality, innovation, or opinion—for fear of jeopardizing a future career in sales or politics—Olivia Neutron-John is a vital bolt from the blue, a radical arrival which signals something outside of noise, punk, disco, pop… Appearing fully formed, without a note or groove out of place, the O N-J record is a total statement; something brand new, a strike against complacency, a challenge thrown at the content-less stagnation of modern indie, garage, and whatever other tiresome genre exercises are being paraded around at the corporate festivals. Combining two cassette only releases by O N-J, (Injury Train and I’m Never Getting Off It & Vulnerability), O N-J's debut vinyl album captures the intensity of the same live performance that's transfixing audiences coast to coast. Olivia Neutron-John is ANNA NASTY (CHAIN & THE GANG, VEGETABLE) on keyboards, voice, saxophone… joined on the LP by MISHA POLESHCHUK (NO BABIES) on saxophone for this chunk of pure Casio crystal."—Ian Svenonius.

Fella, James

Slots / Inner Sanctum / Tusks / Desolation
Gilgongo

***Recorded in mid-April 2011, a single 1 hour and 16 minute long improvised piece ranging from free-form / non-music to harsh noise and drone, presented in it’s original raw form, with no edits made to the waves of electronics, voice and saxophone which were used to blindly craft an entity that existed in gradual flux, consisting of small scattered electroacoustic elements folding over on themselves until succumbing to a wall of scathing yet harmonious sound, volatile ambiance spouting off jagged shrapnel, eventually calming into a steady low-end migration and ultimately dispersing at the end of it’s descent. No run-on sentence describing it can possibly compete with the insatiable appetite exercised by the tools themselves during the recording of this movement, a process which was the product of a momentary black-hole in Tempe, AZ and specifically in the main operating room of Gilgongo Records, where the owner and operator could have feasibly been lost for an indefinable amount of time, as it’s very easy to lose control in certain situations, after all.

***Debut single from brand new Tempe, AZ band, VEGETABLE, featuring ANNA NASTY of HELL-KITE and the Tempe junk, clothes and record shop XNA, and PAUL from a criminally unknown Phoenix group, CHANDALLS. Vegetable play a spastic and soulful brand of post-punk, borrowing some of the finest traits of bands like Au Pairs, Delta 5, Kleenex and Devo, but also knowing how to play it calm and cool as needed. Carefully calculated and delivered with sharp tongues, these two songs were recorded late 2010 in the basement of XNA, leaving just enough time for these to have been ready for their winter tour.

It’s Not Just Kissing

***PLEASE CHECK STOCK!!! STEPHEN STEINBRINK resurrects the FRENCH QUARTER name for the first time since 2008’s s/t debut LP. Eight national tours later, these fifteen songs (which showcase his bedroom pop sensibilities blending with electronic elements and rhythms and are reflections on life on tour and at home, not wanting to die and not wanting to grow up) have been culled from various short-run tour exclusive CDrs and a VHS tape release, and compiled here. Co-released with Life's Blood Records and Stephen's own imprint: No More Second Chances. For fans of Arthur Russell, Neil Young. One-time pressing of 600 copies.

Fuck The Future 2
Gilgongo

***In anticipation of their upcoming full length Anti Magic on Upset the Rhythm, LA's FOOT VILLAGE have compiled a second batch of vinyl only tracks. Four humans (you know them from Gang Wizard, Friends Forever, Rose for Bodhan and A++, and as members of 2008’s Boredoms 88 drummers performance) emerge from the apocalypse, exploring the primitive wasteland and creative a new nation of their own, using only drums and their voices. Fuck the Future 2 collects the material from: their split LP with Black Pus (Deathbomb ARC / DNT), two recent 7-inches (on Too Pure and Rock Is Hell), the Pisspounder triple LP (with Sword Heaven, Aa, Grey Skull, Rainbow Blanket and Dreamhouse also on DBA) and the recent, wild, collaboration 12-inch with Health, Captain Ahab and Jason Forrest on Ravesploitative, Assembled and mastered together by PETE SWANSON.
