Jean-Hervé Peron of Faust, featuring Jean-Hervé Peron and Geraldine Swayne [also of …bender], with sunseastar [Dield Recordings] and DJ Tango-Mango of the Komische Club / Drones Club star in this evening of experimental noise and organic, avant-drone.
“What a night! Totally insane evening beginning with a screening .. then delivering a through extrapolation of what an experimental noise band should sound like. They do not get bogged down in drone, or carried away with electronics. It is the mix of organic sounds and improvised music and theatrics that makes it make sense. Utilizing steel bars, a giant buzz saw blade, a chain saw, an oil drum, a chainsaw, stand up drums, a drill, an angle grinder, a female accordion player and a local knife wielding/sharpening chef. What more do you want?”
As a founder member of Faust, Jean-Hervé Peron was instrumental in doing nothing less than changing the face of rock music.
“Anyone who’s loved the last half-decade’s re-invention of the guitar (Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine et al.) will instantly recognise Faust as a prime ancestor of ‘our’ music. “Faust are essential, not just as a history lesson, but as a living legacy and as a reproach to an underachieving age.” [Melody Maker]
As sunseastar, members of RBE and Bourbonese Qualk, Simon Crab and Andy Wilson have been making electronic music for over 25 years. In their incarnation as sunseastar they create music from computer processed location recordings. sunseastar will release their first album, ‘Fjaerland’, later this year, based on recordings made in Norway and the UK.
DJing is DJ Tango-Mango of The Komische Club and Drones Club. For the last 11 years, the Kosmische Club has established itself as a place to hear some of the most forward-thinking, truly independent and downright amazing music ever made. Cherished by the open-minded, loved by the chronically energetic, and only occasionally visited by old men with beards, the Kosmische club’s remit slowly began to include the best danceable, experimental music, non-chin-strokey electronica, and classic underground tracks.
