Track of the day #4

I was yesterday reminded that we live around powerful witches who take over our cities at night. I’m still not 100% sure about it, but I got many clues. Then I thought about how the world would fare if it was indeed true, common knowledge and well accepted, and I came to the conclusion that our lives would be like movies, dramatic ones, dangerous ones, but the good thing would be that we’d have a continuous soundtrack, and most probably Ennio Morricone, Bernard Hermann style.
With Il Gruppo di Improvvisazione Nuova Consonanza, Morricone was at his most experimental, and IMHO his best. Or was he?
with only five albums under their belt the group is still largely overshadowed by his soundtrack work, but Morricone also released a handful of library records, six if I remember correctly and exclude the 10 LP Dimension Sonori series with his mentor Bruno Nicolai, and on a few of those, even if no info on who’s playing is given, you can hear the Gruppo in a softer mode.
Such is the case of this Controfaso LP on the Nicolai helmed Gemelli label, one of the scarcer and finest 70ies library outlet, with an average pressing run of 200-300 copies

This beauty is where the abstract Morricone meets the mainstream Morricone in the most effective fashion, and it is a crime (without punishment) it still remains ignored.
Here’s a small door into it.

Oh, and I urge you to set the video at 480p, the sound is usualy way better, which is critical with this music.

RIP Trish Keenan

The unbelievable and sad news just came to us that Trish Keenan of Broadcast has died of pneumonia friday jan. 14 at age 42.

We did not expect to start this blog with such a sad news. Broadcast was and still is one of the bands we like the most, some of us following them since the first years. We were always eager to hear any new work and air it. We will miss bitterly Trish and Broadcast.

Still, we’ll continue to highlight and “promote” the fringe music we like in the same fashion we’ve been crusading for the past 15 years or so, and you can be sure it’s not the last you heard of Broadcast alonside the likes of Bernard Parmegiani, This Heat, Bruno Menny, Larry Heard, Monoton, Kid Creole, Conny Plank, Chep Nunez, Tod Dockstader, LFO, Eliott Sharp, Latin Rascals, Don Cherry, Konrad Becker, Arthur Russell, Robert Gordon, Henri Chopin, Mantronix, the Galactic Mothership, Pietro Grossi, Jean Schwarz, B.W.H., Prince, Rodney Bakerr, Nino Nardini, Sabu Martinez, Roland Kayn, Manix, Ralph Lundsten, Konk, Autechre, Eberhard Schoener, John Bender, Mike Dunn, Pierro Umiliani, Jean Cohen-Solal, Derrick May, Patrick Cowley, Todd Terry, Cluster, Transmat, Soundforce, Spoils Of War, Mark Imperial, Seefeel, Ron Hardy, Annette Peacock, Walter Gibons, Stockhausen, Crass, Maurice Joshua, Steve Lacy, NWW, Ennio Morricone, Phoenecia, Cliff Martinez, Falty DL, Dream Frequency, Pram, Frankie Knuckles, Traxx, Michel Portal, Anthony Manning, Roger Sanchez, MK, Mr Lee, Chrome, Farley “Jackmaster” Funk, Roberto Cacciapaglia, Larry Levan, Sheila Jordan, Kenny Dope, Ubangi, Mark E, Patrick Cowley, Hosono, Terry Housemaster Baldwin, Coil, Bo Didley, James Asher, TinMan, Robbie Basho, Lidell Townsell, Julio Bashmore
