I also have several pictures from the gig for all to see… John moves ALL THE TIME so my little digital camera could never get a clean shot of him!
As many of you may know, I improvise all my DJ sets. So I almost never have a full set list, because I’m just going with the flow. This time I stuck to only vinyl and after recording made a point to note the songs – I may have one or two titles wrong, but here’s the setlist:
- Savath + Savalas : Rolls and Waves of Ignorance
- Mr. Scruff : Get a Move On
- Parov Stelar : Wanna Get
- Mr. Scruff vs. Quantic : Dub!
- Tosca : Damentag
- Quantic : Mishaps Happening
- Pyokn : Ganesha
- Peace Orchestra Reset : Raw Deal
- Shpongle : Dorset Perception
- Ulf Lohmann : Java
- Flanger : Bosco’s Disposable Driver
- Herbert : Suddenly
- Losoul : Position
- Amalgamation of Soundz : For Real
- Mark Farina : Dream Machine
- Mr. Scruff : Night Time
- Awa Band : Bababatteur
- Savath + Savalas : Rolls and Waves of Acknowledgement
- Dub Taylor : Doin It
- Rithma : Love + Music
- Detroit Grand Pubahs : Sandwiches
- Losoul : Overland
- Swayzak : Form is Emptiness
- Soundtrack : Frosty
- Savvas Ysatis : Out to Funk
- The Orb : Cool Harbour
This was the first live show I recorded with my new M-Audio MicroTrackII digital recorder… it’s like having a DAT machine without any moving parts, I love it! More on that soon…
Metatron Press has re-released a few more recordings on archive.org:
- Collaborations features Joseph Zitt’s vocals and improvisations with such musicians as F. Vattel Cherry, members of Gray Code, and an electronica treatment by Craque.
- Gusty Winds May Exist consists of Comma member Tom Bickley on recorders and electronics with Nancy Beckman on shakuhachi. This is the first in a series of three releases by each member of Comma with hand-made packaging and album design by Joe Zitt.
- All Souls is a vocal improv collaboration between Joe and Tom.
Check out these rare recordings, some brilliant improvisation and collaboration here!
More Metatron Press music to come… this year is the 10th anniversary of Comma’s (voices), we’re working on a remix album to be released as the original is re-released in digital format on archive.org.
My favorite live downtempo band – T Spigot – is back in action this year, and to start it off they’re offering the limited edition first pressing of Experiments in the Hypnotic Production of Crime, available through paypal for a measly $5, so go get it!
The bonus is that this version of the album includes the remix of dubnbud which they did for the 12″ release of Trolling for Olives.
The version released on Water Music didn’t include it, probably for licensing/copyright reasons imposed by Water, but it’s not exactly clear why.
At any rate, I’m glad those guys are getting the CD version out there, because it’s a great remix, and the entire album is one of my favorites of the genre.
