Law Facilitates Crime

At last, four years or so after it’s inception, Law Facilitates Crime’s “Thought Encryption” ep is avalanched (as a supra-spiff split cassette with bijin-blur Bollock Swine). In a cringe of fluke coparcenary, so too is the only (basically) video footage of the band throwing off a few rehearsal reels (edited at last after hunting for like, three years over).

Muhal Richard Abrams – Cecil Taylor

These reports have been stalled behind massive sand-berms, flattened castles, toppled turrets…the Taylor one as I was waiting on a specialist to deliver a more punctilious exergete, which never showed-up, & the Muhal affair because I was so vexed at the loss of a well executed & adulatory review that had just been comprised (I failed to transfer it ‘successfully’ to a USB on a proxy computer, where the original was then deleted) >< . two pianists, one year either side (birth/death) & one premonition – Continue reading Muhal Richard Abrams – Cecil Taylor

Egschiglen – Anda Union – Chinbat Baasankhuu – Bayarbaatar Davaasuren – sounds of Mongolia

Anda union rolled through town again tuther’ day. This is a great & pleasingly successful collective of largely young musicians from Inner Mongolia playing traditional Mongolian folk music with a few of their own tweaks & personalizations stowed in tha mode. Their success is indicative of the growing suffuse of the “World Music” epithet, but it’s also what happens when the machine gets behind a specific act.

Dope as fuck Eddie Harris:

So, Eddie Harris asserted himself early (his first album surfacing in 61) as a band leader & composer, playing sax, keys & vocals. The tenure of his that are the focus of this garble comes in the very late 60’s, when Harris started to transmute from Bop to spectrums of Funk, Fusion, Soul & very importantly – Free Jazz, without discarding his bop groundings. Nothing wrong with his derivations, & the earlier epoch, but the major excitement for me comes from when he started to effuse the new found multiplicity head-on & load more & more humour, mischief & cross-curricular dynamism in his music.

Condign – Kikanju Baku – 886VG – Bollock Swine – Flensecore galore (fuck Israel):

Igna Ruz Ruz!

The latest in a long line of lumped lascivity & paraterrestrial abilities – Kikanju Baku upends in conjunction with ‘politician free planet’ & Gosh-Glut Godatsu Disruptions (another live collisionary conscript production dump from Kikanju) three sub-studio sessions with Bollock Swine & an undesignated amorph of frenzied intemperate indignation hyper-destructive harsh noise hysteria & indefensibly erratic percussive atom-disaggregation (‘Condign’).

ひみつキング/Himitsu King ~ hyper-henka Osaka Noisecore (Fast Progressive Junk):

omeko blat pack!

Once upon a time, there was this really’ really oishi, fuck-it!, – uniquely oishi, five piece from Osaka playing “fast progressive junk” (more on this eponym shortly). A very difficult shape to outline, HK squirted, doused, spumed – structured Noisecore, Prog-addled Grind/HC/Fastcore mismatched with a small but integral 15% provision of ‘anything else’ from computer game themed scrat, J-Pop garbage, turbid Reggae & 90’s Anime instrumental soundtrack lachrymose.

Narco & Gangster States, Capitalism, and London & New York money laundering of criminal currency through the commercial banking sector (Cartel Land, Roadmap To Hell, Amexica, Gangster Warlords, More Terrible Than Death, HSBC: Les Gangsters de la Finance)

‘Rogue’, ‘Failed’, ‘Gangster’ & of course ‘Narco’. As so much of modern politics increasingly defines organized crime (arguably in it’s ultimate form), it’s perhaps best to donate some attention to regions that are afflicted by the ‘classic’ model, or at least the model with the most recognized distinction of this growing phenomenon. Filthy as fuck money, drenched in blood, massive narcotic dividends, major state thievery, larceny & kleptocratic hoardings, are washed through the City of London, New York or Switzerland & stashed off-shore beyond tax authorities & public knowledge (or hygienically converted by ‘investments’ or ‘assets’).

Kikanju Baku-Luke Stewart-Chris Pitsiokos, Concussion Projectile trio, “the Serpent Devouring the Banker” & additional ordinance:

(MP3 EP zip downloadable at the bottom of article) –

Spontaneity, vim & adventurism. Now that’s a good start. Ethnicity Against the Error (record label run by yours unruly) in conjunction with Gosh Glut Godatsu Disruptions (some new shit I coined to rend London a new set of blush-lapels unt further fervency) induced a fresh offensive by slap-dash/flash-mob/blink-of-eye/whim-whack with two of the finest young up-starts from over the pond – New Yorx youngsta’ flamebellower Chris Pitsiokos (saxophone, electronics, percussion) & DC embedded bass-sentinel Luke Stewart (electric bass, stand-up bass, electronics, percussion) & me – Baku-Blacclist the heterodox hierophant (drums, bass/cello, lutes).
