    Basses Loaded

    It's 2016 and the Melvins have an album called Basses Loaded coming out that features six different bass players. That's right SIX different bass players. NEW Melvins bass players for this go around are Steve McDonald from the legendary Los Angeles glam punk band Redd Kross and their old friend Krist Novoselic from Nirvana! Making return appearances are former and probably future bass players Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers), Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle/Fantomas), Jared Warren (Big Business) and Dale Crover.


    Six bass players? Is this a joke? What IS the deal with these ceaseless idiots? Can't they just settle in and be happy with ONE line up?


    Apparently not.


    I suppose it figures considering how many goddam bass players they've had up until this point.


    Nonetheless Basses Loaded actually works!


    According to King Buzzo, "More is more! As hard as it might be to believe, all of these bass players contribute something of their own to Basses Loaded which gives the whole album a good kick right in it's big fat ass."


    Recording with Krist Novoselic is something that should have happened a long time ago but rumor has it that he's been busy doing things like playing bass with Paul McCartney and getting his ass inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It's hard to believe he even bothered with this! Ha!


    Butthole Surfer and Honky member Jeff Pinkus played on the Melvins' album Hold it In and has done shit load of touring with the boys in the last few years.


    Trevor Dunn recorded the Freak Puke album with these guys as well as played bass on the Melvins' record setting US tour where they played all 50 states plus DC in 51 days. This was also released as a tour DVD last year entitled Across the USA in 51 Days, the Movie!


    Jared Warren is a Melvins' veteran having recorded the Senile Animal, Nude with Boots and The Bride Screamed Murder albums as well as the Bulls and the Bees EP. Dale Crover is usually the Melvins drummer but slid over to bass when they brought back original drummer Mike Dillard for the Tres Cabrones album (this line-up was called Melvins 1983).


    Steve McDonald has been in Redd Kross since he was 11 and he's a founding member of Los Angeles hardcore band OFF! plus he's got REALLY good stories about the "rock scene" in Los Angeles! The Melvins have a shit load of touring planned with Steven this year so this whole thing is a really big deal.

    Fantomas: Le Faux Magistrat

    In celebration of the centenary of Louis Feuillade's Fantômas silent film series, James Blackshaw was invited by Yann Tiersen to perform a live score to
    the fifth and final film, Le Faux Magistrat, at the beautiful and prestigious surroundings of the ThÉâtre de Châtelet, Paris on October 31st 2013.


    Fantômas - a master of disguise and symbol of terror - is one of the most popular characters in French crime fiction, as well as a favorite with the avantgarde, particularly the surrealists.
    Tim Hecker, Amiina, Yann Tiersen and Loney Dear also performed during the event (which was broadcast live on the European ARTE channel) each
    bringing their own unique sonic perspective to the other installments in the series.


    Written during the course of a few months, Blackshaw drew influences from French impressionist composers, Brazillian guitar music, musique concrete
    and the works of other film composer such as David Shire and Pino Donaggio, to create a noirish score that is in turns sinister, quietly profound and
    thrilling.


    Personally invited by James Blackshaw, experimental musicians Duane Pitre and Simon Scott (also of Slowdive) contributed drums, electronics, synth,
    bowed guitar, bass and more to Blackshaw's nylon string guitar and grand piano, with multi-instrumentalist Charlotte Glasson adding violin, vibraphone
    and several wind instruments to the 75 minute long work.

    Infinity

    Yann Tiersen says of his new record," (Infinity) is my eighth studio
    album, and an '8' is also the sign of infinity. I didn't choose the title, the
    title chose itself." This very special album features tracks in English,
    Icelandic, Faroese, and Tiersen's native tongue, Breton.


    Tiersen's Breton heritage is integral to who he is personally and
    sonically. He currently lives on Ushant Island, off the coast of Brittany,
    France where much of this album was recorded. Unlike Tiersen's well
    known Amelie soundtrack, (Infinity) is sweeping, rife with texture,
    and at times orchestral. The barren, stone topography of Ushant
    Island was a major influence on Tiersen. First single, "A Midsummer
    Evening", is dense with manipulated textures, strings and choral
    chanting, harvested from rugged, remote locations.


    Yann Tiersen is one of the most revered artists of his generation with
    a reputation first established by his studio albums, the earlier of which
    were combined and used for the Amelie soundtrack (2001), earning him
    global recognition. His prominence has only grown with projects such
    as the recent live score to the Fantômas series which he curated at the
    ThÉâtre de Châtelet with guests Tim Hecker, James Blackshaw, Loney
    Dear and Amiina.


    (Infinity) is Yann Tiersen's first album for Mute in North America.

    California

    California is the third and final studio album by Mr. Bungle and the follow-up to Disco Volante (1995). The American experimental band including Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Fantômas, etc) was formed in 1985 while the members were still in high school. Mr. Bungle released four demo tapes in the mid to late 1980s before being signed to a major label and releasing three full-length studio albums between 1991 and 1999. Mr. Bungle was known for its distinctive musical traits, often cycling through several musical genres within the course of a single song. Many of its songs had an unconventional structure and utilized a wide array of instruments and samples. Originally released in 1999 California was generally well received.

    Bacteria Cult

    Kaada/Patton is a side project for two prolific musicians, Norwegian soundtrack composer Kaada and Faith No More frontman Mike Patton. Their band draws on a joint love of film music, with Patton building on his experiences with his band Fantômas, who paid an inimitable tribute to horror film scores with their album The Director's Cut.


    Mike Patton is coming off Faith No More's first studio album in 17 years and a sold-out worldwide tour.


    "Bacteria Cult" will have a full advertising campaign behind it targeted both rock and film score fans. The first video will debut in March for the track "Imodium".

    Geocidal

    tetema is a new duo project from Mike Patton (FNM, Bungle, Fantomas, principle Zorn interpreter) and Australian composer/pianist Anthony Pateras (Thymolphthalein, Pivixki, Pateras/Baxter/Brown, Beta Erko). geocidal is audio caffiene injected direct into your eyeballs. Recorded across half the
    continents on the planet, this record investigates the murder of place. Do borders even matter any more? Should we even leave the house? Is there any specificity left in this generalised cesspool of culture? Or has the tidal wave of digitally-fuelled apathy swamped any sense of tangible individuality? tetema
    demand another universe to this one, and have built one especially for you.


    Boasting a 12-piece all-star cast of incredible musicians and featuring special guest drummer Will Guthrie (absolutely slaying), tetema hand picked a devastating team of instrumental virtuosi to assist their quest to make indispensable music in the age of permanent refuse. As a result, geocidal brings the
    most glorious noise, interrogating the deepest cosmogonies and malformations of man. It's true! Antique synths? Check. Outlandish orchestration? Definitely. Face-frying vocals wrapped in velvet? You know it.


    If we could name some references for you to file this under, we would, but some application is eventually going to tell you what it sounds like anyways, so we won't. To us, it sounds like two maniacs in their respective studios having the time of their lives, rebirthing some of the most insane songcraft this side
    of the godforsaken Miley-Cyrus worshipping millennium. So stop like-ing cat jpegs, stop drooling into your phone and listen to this freaking record - it will literally re-wire your existing perception of sonic possibility, although that's probably underselling it. Featuring absolutely gorgeous drawings from Sydney
    artist Nik Kamvissis, this album brutally articulates the hell of now!

    Fire From The Evening Sun

    PHILM, the temperamental, highly gifted brainchild of Dave Lombardo certainly did not come to fruition
    overnight. Years of life lessons and rhythmical adventures slowly molded and manipulated his latest creation for
    the musical misfits of the world.


    As a multi-genre labyrinth, PHILM resonates not only the individual symphonic personalities of its members, but
    their uniquely agile bond in instrumentation as a whole.


    Front-man Gerry Nestler, noted for his undeniable skill and rapport with his guitar, is best known for his work
    with progmetallists, Civil Defiance. An impassioned vocalist, his musical journey has also found him gaining
    much respect for his lyrical prowess. Nestler describes PHILMs music as, "Heavy but sensitive, powerful and
    atmospheric." He further elaborated, saying ". The music of PHILM is channeled through the many different
    influences of drum and bass, expressionism, and underground that is indigenous to the street, Nestler states.
    There are many different things that Dave and I have been into that have contributed to the vision of PHILM.
    Pancho's highly skilled bass playing, chordal color and shape have helped expand the overall sound
    instrumentation and groove. Dave Lombardo's drumming goes without comparison.


    Bassist, Pancho Tomaselli, a long-time member of funk rockers, War and most recently, Tower of Power is
    sought after for his aggressively malleable, yet smooth way around his bass guitar. Drummer, Dave Lombardo,
    is most widely known for his legendary work with a band he co-developed at the young age of 17, SLAYER. His
    work with Mike Patton (Fantomas), John Zorn (Bladerunner), Grip Inc., and many others, leaves no room for
    questioning his legendary status as one of the most skilled and innovative drummers in the world. Justifiably
    typecast to the genre he helped trail-blaze, it is certainly a shock to Lombardo enthusiasts to see his infamous
    drum set now scaled down to a four piece kit. But, the depth of his musical aptitude is much more than what
    has come to be known as his signature sound. His prodigious skill and affinity for heavy, penetrating grooves is
    oddly taken to another level in his work with this riveting trio. To quote Tomaselli, "It's like playing with the
    seven, not four, horses of the Apocalypse behind you."


    PHILMs music is a dense, unholy convergence of tones and discords." Lombardo states, " We tend to live on the
    heavy side, but we also touch on haunting, desolate, ambient sounds.


    These three innovative musicians have masterfully revived the concept of the Power Trio. Often improvised,
    their live set can find their audience entranced by a raw, tonal journey that is both awe-inspiring and thrilling

    Cortar Todo

    For over fifteen years, Zu's modus operandi of straddling and abusing musical genres has resulted in over fifteen unique album releases across labels such as Ipecac, Atavistic and Headz (Japan). Their experimental amalgam of metal, math, no-wave, noise and electronics, led acclaimed composer John Zorn to describe their sound as a powerful and expressive music that totally blows away what most bands do these days.


    In the running for the title of the world's hardest working band, Zu have performed over 1000 shows throughout Europe, US, Canada, Asia, Russia, Mexico and even Africa, touring with the like of Mike Patton (as the Zu/Patton quartet), also sharing the stage with Faith No More, Fantômas, The Melvins, Lightning Bolt, Sonic Youth, The Ex, and countless others. They have also collaborated with a vast number of musicians including Mike Patton, The Melvins, DÄlek, Jim O' Rourke, FM Einheit (Einsturzende Neubauten), Peter Brötzmann, Nobukazu Takemura, Eugene Robinson (Oxbow), Steve MacKay (The Stooges), The Ex, Thurston Moore, Stephen O Malley, Damo Suzuki (Can), Mats Gustafsson, NoMeansNo, Joe Lally (Fugazi).


    Five years since their last full length on Ipecac, the critically acclaimed Carboniferous, and following a three year hiatus, Zu returned in May 2014 with the release of a brand new EP, Goodnight Civilization (Trost Records) and with a line up change that introduced the mighty Gabe Serbian, best known as the drummer for the legendary Californian band, The Locust.


    In March 2015, Zu are preparing to release a brand new full length via Ipecac Recordings, entitled Cortar Todo, and recorded in the countryside near Bologna, Italy, in the summer of 2014. The album features some very special guests including keyboard player Joey Karam (The Locust), Italian guitar maverick Stefano Pilia (who plays regularly with the likes of Mike Watt, David Grubbs and Rokia Traore) and perhaps most unexpectedly, a field recording of an indigenous Shipibo medicine man recorded by Massimo during his travels around the Amazon.


    Cortar Todo reveals new dynamics from the band, the album is more direct, sharp, focussed, and more intense and musical than anything we have heard from Zu so far. In addition to the album release, we can expect a long period of touring starting in Spring 2015.
