It was really an art punk movement , she is The vocalist with Teenage Jesus And the Jerks (1976 at the age of 16. – 1979) originally and in recent years reformed. Her large and diverse body of work typically features provocative and confrontational delivery and has maintained an anti-commercial, do-it-yourself ethic, operating independently of major labels and distribution deals.[2]

this morning The Caretaker(James Kirby) experimental musician from Stockport England and the  blue limited edition vinyl LP record version of the brand new album, an empty bliss beyond this world. Utilising original 78s deserted ballrooms, wandering its waxed floor and dilapidated grandeur.Ghostly crackly echoes,distant memories.Plus Sound works by kirby’s other guise Lleyland Kirby which we will begin with from the triple CD sadly The Future Is Not All What It Was from 2001, beautiful minimal dreamscapes. James Kirby also recorded under the name v/vm previously.

1,3, the beauty of the impending tragedy,7′ 36″

 

2,6, I’ve hummed this tune to all the girls I’ve known, 12′ 48″

 

And Now the brand-new release (released on June 21 only one week ago). The limited-edition LP version of an empty bliss beyond this world. Bits and pieces of old-fashioned tunes are looped as they are layered on top of crackling vinyl recordings. Since 1996, the British musician has created eerily beautiful sounds that could be heard emanating from a haunted ballroom.

Memory as a theme is used constantly throughout Bliss. Each track was made using a specific moment in a song from a previous era. That moment once isolated has then been edited to repeat unto itself yet behave as if it were the continuation of a finite melody.

Background Noise: Post Punk from the English South Coast 1978 – 1981

Posted in Uncategorized by loops on July 24, 2011

The link is here

post punk was a truly international musical phenomenon. Last program Sydney and this program fairly obscure groups from South coast of England. “‘D.I.Y.’ and (very) indie postpunk from the South Coast 1977-81 (vol. 1: Bournemouth-to-Brighton). Throughout the age of Punk and postpunk the English music press, the major labels, and established indies ignored the South Coast with surprising thoroughness. With words from Chuck Warner from the hyped2 death American label which releases the messthetics series of which this is #108. And I spoke to him yesterday. Please excuse the quality as it was a poor connection.
