I am listening to POP TATARI and I think it sounds like the Muppets doing a musical spectacular where they ape:

- James Brown
- The Stooges
- A bunch of cannibals
- Punk Rock
- Captain Beefheart
- Forcefield (obviously traveling through time to do so)


THIS WAS ON A MAJOR LABEL?

I don't know if I like it. People compare SOUL DISCHARGE to Lightning Bolt? This album seems pretty far off from the LASER BEASTS.

POP TATARI sounds like some students with a heavy metal band trying way too hard to be wacky. the tunes aren't good the riffs aren't good, but hey! they dress up silly, make squawk noises, and they're Japanese! yu know like "Akira" or something. unless you really haven't heard a lot of music it really isn't very good. similar with pop tatari, what's that you say ? a band that sounds as "great" as TAD in their prime (?) with a trumpet player, oh you spoilin us mister zorn. BALLS.
soul discharge IS good. annoying on purpose this time WITH good tunes i stand up for it. it's better than ripping off Can and Amon Duul for a living.

That picture of Yoshimi looks way better than she actually looks. What label is this on? Domestic release? Oh yeah, more later.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 13:24 (sixteen years ago) link

i dunno d., that looks just like yoshimi to me.

KILA KILA KILA is on nigo's label (ape sounds). he's put out the vinyl for ooioo before but this will be the first time he's putting out the CDs too.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 16:59 (sixteen years ago) link

domestic release: how about never, does never work for you?

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 8 July 2003 17:00 (sixteen years ago) link

If someone can point me in the direction of a good album produced by any Japanese artist in the world, ever, in the history of mankind I would be very grateful. I can't quite believe that a nation of the size of Japan can ONLY produce incontinent, incoherent and self-indulgent plagiarists and obcurantists?!?!????

Is OOIOO dance party safe?

Is OOIOO dance party safe?

If you like to party out of bounds.

Mark (MarkR), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:02 (sixteen years ago) link

I think of it as Dance Party USA but in Japanese.

Is Kila Kila Kila good or what?

dleone (dleone), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:11 (sixteen years ago) link

i haven't heard it yet! I want to but I am stuck at work dleone, you gotta get me out of here.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 16 July 2003 13:16 (sixteen years ago) link

Well I haven't heard it either. But good news, they're getting rid of all of us in October, so I won't have work to worry about then.

two reviews of kila kila kila:

"the new ooioo record is like Sun Ra meets Serge Gainsbourge A nite remember a day forgotten shooting out into space on a breath, a pregnant pause and then a skidding lift where you land no one knows... "
-Kim Gordon

"In a perfect world, Roger Dean would be banging on yoshimi's door, begging to do thier covers, their stage set, their shoes. I can't quite place why OOIOO make me think of Yes, especially as i like OOIOO a lot more. but i guess it's because OOIOO fufill what i always hoped Yes would do for me, elegantly articulate endless planes of otherness. i don't know what that means, but i hoped for it! OOIOO's new albums sounds even more assured than their previous records, and sounds more intimate, up front and cozy, right in your front room. so before they arrive, clean up, put away your laundry, and was the dishes, they need as much space as you can give them."
-Jim O'Rourke.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 30 July 2003 17:20 (sixteen years ago) link

Sun Ra doesn't need to meet anyone else in order to be interesting.

Al Andalous, Wednesday, 30 July 2003 17:39 (sixteen years ago) link

deep.

gygax! (gygax!), Wednesday, 30 July 2003 18:38 (sixteen years ago) link

kila kila kila domestic release on thrill jockey in february 04...

still no domestic release of the epic masterwork gold and green

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:05 (fifteen years ago) link

I got this record shortly after my post from the summer. Can't say I thought it was that interesting. I probably should listen to it again; haven't heard it since listening a couple of times after I bought it.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:12 (fifteen years ago) link

i have a good suggestion, treat the first 2 songs as bonus tracks.

gygax! (gygax!), Tuesday, 25 November 2003 18:13 (fifteen years ago) link

also: Spring Tour of USA for OoioO

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 19:29 (fifteen years ago) link

marcg (marcg), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 19:52 (fifteen years ago) link

Jon Williams to thread.

So, are Lightning Bolt going to play on the floor? In a snotty London venue? Alright!

Oh, I wish I had never seen this.

dean! (deangulberry), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 22:38 (fifteen years ago) link

HI GUYS! Do you know anything about Eye coming to NYC for something to do with John Zorn's birthday?

Also, Damo Suzuki is playing with Yammato in Japan :(

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 22:39 (fifteen years ago) link

Eye performed with Zorn in a duo show right around the time of the Zorn 50th birthday shows at Tonic last year. Zorn told me he recorded something for him as well for possible release on Tzadik.

dleone (dleone), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 22:43 (fifteen years ago) link

ahhh wicked!

prima fassy (bob), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 22:54 (fifteen years ago) link

why do they hate us so?

strongo hulkington (dubplatestyle), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 22:56 (fifteen years ago) link

I'm still mad about that. I hate everyone who has the ability to go to that show.

dean! (deangulberry), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 23:09 (fifteen years ago) link

Yea, what have the Brits done recently to contribute awesome music to the world? NOTHING.

Jon Williams (ex machina), Tuesday, 3 February 2004 23:12 (fifteen years ago) link

let's kick england's ass!!!

JON: DON'T MAKE BLANKET STATEMENTS. IT IS BAD FORM.

Ian Johnson (orion), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 02:30 (fifteen years ago) link

NO, REALLY ENGLAND SUX

Jon Williams (ex machina), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 15:32 (fifteen years ago) link

They don't deserve that show.

dean! (deangulberry), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 17:52 (fifteen years ago) link

MAYBE COLDPLAY CAN OPEN FOR THE BOREDOMS HAHAHA

Jon Williams (ex machina), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 18:31 (fifteen years ago) link

(recent-ish) British stuff that is good: Skullflower/Sunroof!, Vibracathedral Orchestra&offshoots.. probably more. Ned would know.

IAN J0HNSOPNNN, Wednesday, 4 February 2004 18:38 (fifteen years ago) link

I know a few things, and you've definitely named some of the best -- let us not forget the wonderful Wickham-Smith/Youngs axis.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 19:02 (fifteen years ago) link

Guapo might appeal to fans of Boredoms, and also happen to include ILM's udu wudu as a member (I think).

dleone (dleone), Wednesday, 4 February 2004 19:04 (fifteen years ago) link

no shit?

(guapo's "great sage" is insane and brilliant. "five suns" is like the second coming of magma.)
