Roscoe Mitchell-Bells for the South Side:

Last month 2015 (huh?). c-c-celebrated savant & seasoned Free/Avant Jazz colossus Roscoe Mitchell (acting here as a performer, composer, conductor, situational stimulant, protagonist placement, conceptualist) leads an inimitable cabal of barely plausible super-cretins into mythic metamorph & medley. the occasion? The Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (that’s AACM to you cuddles) 50th anniversary. Location – Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago, basement stage & exhibition area (so three totally separate & varying performances, captured here on two discs). The label – ECM Records….

Parliament Ltd-a journey into the dark heart of British politics:

“For the last six months I have been investigating MP’s private finances. During this time, I have seen just how corrupt Parliament has become. Greed is endemic. If you want to understand why British politics isn’t working, it seems the first place to look is in the bank accounts of our politicians. Yet this is an issue that the authorities have turned their backs on. Rules and regulations are lax and transparency is laughable. The whole thing is shrouded in secrecy. Because of this, it is easy for politicians to milk the system and get away with it.” Continue reading Parliament Ltd-a journey into the dark heart of British politics:

Rat F**ked-the true story behind the secret plan to steal America’s democracy:

“This is the story of the actual redrawing of the American political map and our democracy itself. It’s the story of how the republicans turned a looming demographic into legislative majorities so unbreakable, so impregnable, that none of the outcomes are in doubt until after the 2020 census. It is the story of new mapping technologies so exact that they’ve resorted and resegregated Americans, while creating congressional districts where the only competition comes from someone more extreme. It’s legal, it’s breathtaking, and much of it happened in plain sight. The Democratic majority was ratfucked.” Continue reading Rat F**ked-the true story behind the secret plan to steal America’s democracy:

Nabeg – Apoplexy, Flensecore, Fray, Riot-Gear & the Enclave for Aberrational Expostulation:

Nabeg, infra-surface at the “sedition station”. the line-up includes members from Bollock Swine, Drog-Ded, Din Addict, Law Facilitates Crime, Hyper Marx, Ariel Sharon’s Head in an Industrial Press, Chappa’ai & Pseudoku but rejects all Grind/Noisecore formulaics & formalities.

Budapest/Hungary fall 2015, industrial district, hypogeal quarters (“sedition station”), nemesis pariah sage Kikanju Baku & a rogue-cell of Anti-Listener enthusiasts/stentorians are gathered on the cusp of a seismically dramatic, irreversible eruption & parturition that is about to be realized in retaliation to institutionized injustice, mega-malfeasance, hyper-hypocrisy, deliberate degeneracy, rampant nonchalant corporate, fiscal & political criminality/financialization/misrule/usury, automation, technological encroachment & dehumanization, truth-impairment, anthropocentrism & catastrophe-consignment (particularly as perpetrated by the Western World). A radical rebuke/repudiation/retaliatory-reflex to explicitly inveigh “economic growth” & “development” along with Globalization, called-out for the fucking mega disaster/super-nadir that it is. Continue reading Nabeg – Apoplexy, Flensecore, Fray, Riot-Gear & the Enclave for Aberrational Expostulation:

Tanya Tagaq-Retribution & Animism CD’s:

Sometimes, being uncompromising as fuck pays off! The success of Tanya Tagaq heralds such an occurrence, one that rarely transpires but always brings a smile to my gob (you don’t have to suck to succeed). She seems to have enthralled the “World Music” spectrum, which is, in regard to some of her construct, very surprising due to the intense darkness & ominous threat much of her music emanates. Continue reading Tanya Tagaq-Retribution & Animism CD’s:

Official Music Team (Kylie Minoise, Grimanlkin555) – acid death CDR ep:

So this is a four track, combined effort, dual dissection between/bestowed by Lea Cummings/Kylie Minoise & his moll Sarah Glass/Grimalkin555. In the rough-shod of remixes & randomations, you end up with just under forty minutes of palette infection (the longest being the 23 minute CDR only bonus blat “the Golden Apples of the Sun”). what is it? tacky tasting (but well-constructed), mega monosodium glutamate Dance trash that’s been hijacked by Noise interventionists…..

This is the most recent addition from environmental activist & documentary maker Josh Fox following his impossibly important & phenomenal Gaslands & greater still – Gaslands 2, a Fracking documentary of staggering trenchant clarity & devastating factual exposure.
