Wed 17 Oct @ Knockenbox SUN WORSHIP + FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL by DuChamp

Wed Oct 17, @ Knockenbox Boxhagener str. F´hain Blitzgigs presents:

SUN WORSHIP (best metal ever existed, DE) + FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL (drone, NZ/IT)

Sun Worship channels almost distant howls from the void since early 2010, thriving in and from the netherworld between nothing and everything. Nihilism as an irrational and desperate urge to exist and create, the celebration of contradictions in general and particular, post fucking black fucking metal, et al. Played with a bunch of different bands the last few months.

Fausto Maijstral is the duo of DuChamp (IT) and Will Gresson (NZ). Together they perform dense, long musique concrete/drone pieces that explore memories and lived experience through heavily processed instruments and field recordings.  They performed with Concern (US), Family Battle Snake (GR), Steindor Kristinsson (IS), Preslav Literary School (UK), Iku Sakan (JP), Bemydelay (IT) and Rella the Woodcutter (IT), Drekka and Canid (US), Krapoola (ES), Nadja (CA). They have performed several time in Berlin and recently in Istanbul.

Tonight!!! Father Murphy live in Berlin, don’t miss them ! by DuChamp

Filed under: concert | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Tonight,  one of the most amazing band I’ve saw live in my life, Father Murphy, are coming in Berlin! You can see them live at White Trash, w/Les Rhinocéros

Father Murphy is an Italian trio comprised of Reverend freddie Murphy (vocals, guitar), Chiara Lee (vocals, keyboards, chinese percussions) and Vittorio Demarin (drums, viola, vocals). Born in Treviso, northern Italy, from the ashes of freddie’s several previous musical projects, Father Murphy with just one album and a plethora of ep’s and limited releases became one of the most mysterious and enigmatic musical entities coming out of Italy. If their first album Six Musicians getting unknown was still somewhat rooted in twisted psychedelic pop and sounded vaguely related to Os Mutantes and Italian psych pop masters Jennifer Gentle, the new record is a bold statement and a significant step ahead – out of every familiar musical genre and right into the darkness. Recorded in San Crisostomo in Bombanella church between the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008, And He told us to turn to the sun maybe was born like a rather weird attempt to a concept album about religion, but surely sounds like a collection of dark, foreboding songs that crawl and twist and hiss like that old biblical serpent.
Think of Gnostic masses, kabbalistic chanting, chiming little bells, tinny Gregorian-like drones played on toy-keyboards and the subtle but inescapable influence of 70’s Italian horror rock acts like Jacula and you will have some of the ingredients that make Father Murphy’s music. Add a good deal of lunacy and enough humour to keep the gloom away (just because you cannot take yourself that seriously) and the album is here, in all its strangely beguiling simplicity. Song after song, from the initial semi-pop outburst of “We were colonists” to ascetic, almost medieval atmospheres of Go Sinister, the entire lp feels like a truly different, warped experience. Think of Alan Sparhawk’s Low doing versions of Twilight furniture from This Heat or Milk it from Nirvana. When the final, 10-minutes mastodon “In their graves” creeps in with all the agility of a primordial doom-metal beast slowly sucked in a prehistoric swamp, everything comes full circle: an uneasy, compelling, furiously heretic yet sandblasted in Catholicism little album that could come only out of Italy.
“Compliments to Michael Gira for pointing Dream Magazine in the direction of this intriguing Italian psychedelic outfit. Lumpy and smooth lurching uneven constructions suffused with oblique passions and simmering intensity. As the title aptly indicates there\’s a vaguely sinister quality to the music these folks make. Even the lighter moments have a slightly uneasy nightmarish undertone to them, but in a completely natural and unforced way. A mix of male and female vocalists, loudness and subtlety, and a wide range of stylistic influences blended into something quite unique. Though they sing everything in English they have a distinctively Italian feeling. In a world of cookie-cutter imitators, it\’s very refreshing to find something so disturbingly and provocatively unique. These folks also sent along a great CD-R of their upcoming album \”…And He Told Us to Turn to the Sun\” which is perhaps even more intense, edgy and fascinating than Do the Sinister. This is definitely a band to keep an eye and ear open for.” Dream Magazine review by George Parsons

Their last album, “Anyway your children will deny it” is out now for Aagoo records

KRAPOOLA (Impro, Sound Exploration/ES)
Krapoola is a tamer who explores the ways that materials interact when the entropicio happens. Noise is a part of this, not a reality by itself. Along this learning path a memory has formed itself and oblivion has appeared. The mutation has just begun. Regression? For his performances Krapoola’s self-built devices are the usual. They mostly proceed from detritus and go towards the secret. One of his tricks is to spin three records at the same time – one at normal speed, another one twice as fast or slow and one gets played backwards.
