Man I'd have to say "Ice Train" from Correlations has become my #1 jam of late 2008.

Nate Carson, Friday, 19 December 2008 03:39 (eleven years ago) link

everybody go download "le berceau de cristal" by ash ra tempel and then come back and thank me for telling you to download it.

I want to hear all those private tapes now. But they seem to be out of print.

Know how Roo feel (LocalGarda), Wednesday, 12 September 2012 16:00 (seven years ago) link

"oasis" from that is one of my favorite gottsching tracks

I had not seen this before - Ashra, Spanish TV 1981

That same user has also uploaded footage of Ashra jamming with Neuronium from the same show, but I haven't watched that yet.

was this posted somewhere else? i've seen it pop up here and elsewhere unrelated on the same day!
(how chill are they btw? admirable.)

these albatrosses have no fear of man (La Lechera), Monday, 17 September 2012 17:53 (seven years ago) link

rvng intl tweeted about it, looks like it only went up a few days ago, so yeah, it's "doing the rounds"

mod night at the oasis (NickB), Monday, 17 September 2012 18:15 (seven years ago) link

o_O Wow, I am totally unfamiliar with Neuronium but this jam session is pretty great. Also, I'm realizing now that I've never actually seen Ashra performing before.

just a phatic post to note that after not having played e2e4 for years, and after never having liked it quite as much as i thought i would like it, today it is perfect

oh duh, oren tweeted a link - it's an australian festival performance. i am sufficiently unlikely to go to this that i am spared having to deal with my conflicted feelings about the involvment of ariel pink

some good tapes

What essential tracks--if any--are missing from this collection, for those of us without a spare $500 to collect all six volumes?

Wimmels, Friday, 27 January 2017 22:03 (three years ago) link

"sausalito" is rad correlations style funk rock

"schwerer dino" is superb spacey slow burner

full 20+ minute "deep distance" take is good

same with longass "shuttle cock" take

"soiree academique" is epic spacey noisy jammage

full length "lotus" is good

a but (brimstead), Saturday, 28 January 2017 01:07 (three years ago) link

Thanks! Will check these out today. I'm in a mood.

Why did no one tell me Correlations sounds like a prototype for The Division Bell?

Paul Ponzi, Tuesday, 27 November 2018 14:15 (one year ago) link

glad I have these on MP3 but it is very frustrating that they remain out of print as CDs.

sleeve, Tuesday, 27 November 2018 15:23 (one year ago) link

(xp) Because they didn't want to discourage from listening to Manuel Gottsching's music?

somebody pleeeeeeeaze reissue these

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 22:36 (one month ago) link

fucking hell i never even knew about "correlations" - and there's a five cd box set of recording sessions for it? this is my jam for sure, top notch disco shit, i like this _way_ better than tgottsching's ambient stuff

Kate (rushomancy), Tuesday, 19 May 2020 23:28 (one month ago) link

it's so fucking good, enjoy

sleeve, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 23:36 (one month ago) link

so this is vol. 4 on youtube

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwEbc5-sxuY

pretty great so far

budo jeru, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 23:48 (one month ago) link

one of my all-time fav tunes is "77 slightly delayed" which i've found leads into a disappointing album experience w/ "blackouts" since it's all downhill from there imo

any suggestions of where to find this magic elsewhere in the ashra / MG catalog ?

budo jeru, Tuesday, 19 May 2020 23:51 (one month ago) link

I'd suggest New Age of Earth but I love all of Blackouts so that that as you will

Was hoping this revive would be an announcement of Private Tapes reissues. Of course when they do that it'll be something stupid like 7xLP vinyl deluxe box sets

Paul Ponzi, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 00:04 (one month ago) link

sadly true, also they'd split the long tracks between LP sides which I can't stand either

brimstead called it upthread with "Deep Distance", "Shuttle Cock", and "Lotus"

sleeve, Wednesday, 20 May 2020 00:10 (one month ago) link

for the record i gave a quick listen to the box and here's my picks:

begleitmusik
deep distance
le bruit des origines
ultramarine
hausaufgabe

live stuff from the disco band is kinda disappointing to me tbh

These are all great choices but - call me a philistine - I wish he'd broken up "begleitmusik" into discrete tracks. There are some beautiful pillowy floating drones in the middle but I don't always have the patience to find them inside the 25 minute piece (which, as far as I can tell, is pretty randomly assembled rather than being an actual suite of related tracks). I don't remember if there are others like this, should revisit, but that one sticks out

Paul Ponzi, Thursday, 21 May 2020 18:40 (one month ago) link

I much prefer his ambient work. I recently listened to the first 4 Ashra albums and made this very satisfying playlist:

Sunrain (New Age Of Earth)
Ocean Of Tenderness (New Age Of Earth)
Deep Distance (New Age Of Earth)
77 Slightly Delayed (Blackouts)
Midnight On Mars (Blackouts)
Shuttle Cocks (Blackouts)
Ice Train (Correlations)
Oasis (Correlations)
Morgana Da Capo (Correlations)
Kazoo (Belle Alliance)
