LAST AVAILABILITIES

BELLY BUTTON (FR)

Belly Button was one of the most unique French band during the late 90s. With a mix of hardcore energy and syncopated rhythms, they have been labeled free-core to mambo-stoner for their sound. The minimal format of bass/drums have allowed them to explore multitudes of musical ideas. Belly Button has shared the stages of the time with Fugazi, Young Gods, NoMeansNo, Ruins and Sabot. They played hundreds of shows in Europe before separating in 1998. Following the break up, Fred (bass/vocal) moved to Berlin where he joined King Khan & The Shrines as the organist. Franck (drummer/chorus) created the label Sonore, specialized in Japanese experimental music (Satanicpornocultshop, Satoru Wono, Yuko Nexus6) and moved to Tokyo. Both back in France, Fred and Franck reformed Belly Button in 2015. The potency is still there, but with a different approach - years of musical experiences added more depth and precision. Their revival has resulted in a dozen of concerts at venues such as Iboat club in Bordeaux and Villette Sonique festival in Paris. Currently, Belly Button is finishing 8 titles for a record to complete their long-awaited trilogy with Both and Debeso. They will tour in the Spring of 2018 and would like to play at your venue. Availability: Europe/UK from 01 January to 31 May 2018. Contact Franck / Bandcamp / Facebook / New music video now up! / Website

FACS (US / Trouble in Mind)

FACS features Jonathan van Herik, Noah Leger and Brian Case of Disappears. Using minimalism and space, FACS make abstract and modern art rock. As Disappears was getting ready to enter the studio and plan the next 2 years, not everyone was willing to make the same commitments as they had in the past. The band had become a conversation between the four of us about how we process music and art together as a group. There was no point in replacing someone or carrying on under a name that identified the four of us. We all feel strongly that artists have a responsibility to challenge themselves and exist in the now, rip it up and start again. It's exciting to be in an unknown space. First FACS album will be release in March 2018 on Trouble in Minds Records! FACS are ready to hit Europe/UK! Availability: Europe/UK from 29 March to 16 June 2018.

ON TOUR SPRING/SUMMER 2018

LOVE THEME (CA / A L T E R )

Nous avions un peu perdu de vue Alex Zhang Hungtai depuis l’annonce de la fin du projet Dirty Beaches en 2014. Il y a peu, nous l’avons retrouvé au surprenant casting de la dernière saison de Twin Peaks. Membre du groupe Trouble crée pour l’occasion avec le fils de David Lynch, Alex apparaît ainsi sur la scène du mythique Roadhouse. Peu de temps après, nous recevions les beaux morceaux du nouveau trio Love Theme dans lequel il s’entoure d'Austin Milne et Simon Frank. D’ailleurs proche de l’univers de Badalamenti, le projet est né de sessions improvisées mêlant saxos, percus, boite à rythmes, clavier, voix, et de nombreux voyages entre London, Los Angeles et Taipei. L’EP est sorti depuis le 23 juin, nous vous le recommandons vivement (en écoute sur The Fader) et sommes heureux de vous annoncer l’arrivée de ce beau projet chez Julie Tippex, premiers concerts en novembre lors du festival Musiques Volantes.

DUANE THE JET BLACK EEL (US / Jack White's Third Man Records and XL Recordings)

Just when we thought we’d seen it all we had the chance to see last Summer the first Europe show of young Duane The Jet Black Eel - and he effortlessly blew us away. Think Richard Hell at CBGC’s with the androgynous charisma of Prince and David Bowie (yes!). At 19, Duane Gholston, a young musician from Detroit, caught the attention of Jack White's Third Man Records and XL Recordings. Over the past six years, he has recorded and performed with two projects: Duane: the Teenage Weirdo and Duane: The Brand New Dog. His new project is called DUANE: THE JET BLACK EEL, and reflects a committed and forceful discourse that directly confronts "Trump America"! Above all, he is a strange and provoking young man who struggles against a classic vision of America with rock songs denouncing neoliberal conservatism, homophobia in the black community and systematic racism in the USA. Availability: EUR from 23 May to 30 June 2018. Contact Pascal

GOAT (JP / Headz)

Guitar, saxophone, bass and drums. Disregarding the musical scale of instruments as much as possible, the band creates songs that consist of noise and muted sounds that produce a techno energy. The trance and fatigue brought about from relentless repetition and the melody-like sounds that comprise harmonics outside the twelve-tone are both urban and tribal at the same time. A LIVE MUST SEE! Availability: Germany 19 to 30 April 2018. Also available for fly-ins/special events. Contact Etienne / FaceBook Link / Short Live extract / Longer Live extract / Soundcloud

Six of the nine lyrics on the record were written in collaboration with American author Jonathan Lethem. Cover and album art by Richard Prince. This album extends the work of Lee's previous two ‘song’ albums and moves into some rich new sonic territories and production techniques, experimenting with electronic beats and samples alongside the live players. “… his finest solo LP” – MOJO **** / “… a welcome return” – Q / “Those seeking both instant gratification and the added pleasure of discovering more layers with every listen will appreciate Ranaldo’s latest.” – The Wire Availability: Europe/UK from 01 May to 03 September 2018.

ALSO AVAILABLE

MURCOF X WAGNER (MX, FR / In Fine Music)

Unique blend of synthetic and acoustic textures this collaboration between Mexican Ambient figurehead Murcof and multi-award winning French classical pianist Vanessa Wagner showcases a wide-ranging conception of minimalism including compositions by Philip Glass, Ligeti, John Cage, Erik Satie. They also put in Aphex Twin's "Avril 14th," too, as a nod to their interpretations. "The minimalist and repetitive music we chose for this album has strongly influenced the current electronic producers," notes Wagner. "There is an obvious connection between these musical styles." "This idea of fusing sounds of different sources so that the borders between them become blurred has been an interest of mine for years," explains Murcof. "And in the album « Statea » this was a very important goal to achieve, to have the piano and electronics exist in their own domains at some moments and at other moments have them become a single entity."

RADIAN (AT / Thrill Jockey)

The long-standing experimental group Radian has been dealing with the relation between structure and abstraction and gained world wide attention promoted by the label Thrill Jockey. Martin Brandlmayr, John Norman and Martin Siewert combine the traditional instrumentation of rock music with extremely minimalist, abstract structures. They create a space of tension between extreme dynamics, freely improvised parts and meticulous construction. Their fifth and recent release 'On Dark Silent Off' is about the juxtaposition of extremes and contrast. It took inspiration from modern and contemporary works of art, from the abstract paintings of Ad Reinhardt to 'Outer Space', an impressionistic horror film by fellow Austrian Peter Tscherkassky. Vienna is the home of Radian who have been influenced by and shaped the city’s vivid scene of electronica since the early 2000s. Generally available / Europe/UK.

PIERRE BASTIEN (FR / Rephlex / Morphine)

French gentleman born 1953, Pierre Bastien builds his own machineries, at the cross between music and visual art, that blends live trumpet sounds with screen projections of on-site, mechanical sound sculptures in a very poetic way.

With collaborations with Pascal Comelade, Robert Wyatt, Aphex Twin to name a few, he is one of the most influential experimental musicians working in the field. Generally available / World.

YOUNG MARBLE GIANTS (UK / Domino)

Twenty-nine years after its release, Young Marble Giants’ legendary ‘Colossal Youth’ (on Rough Trade Records, recorded in 1980 in five days and mixed in 20 minutes) remains a landmark in post-punk music, an enigma of its own, acclaimed by musicians and audience over the years. Formed in 1978 in Cardiff, the trio’s music was constructed around the powerful and minimal instrumentation of brothers Philip and Stuart Moxham on bass and guitar, supporting the naive untrained vocals of Alison Statton. The band split in 1980, reformed in 2006 for a world-wide serie of amazing shows (with Julie Tippex!) and called it a day in 2015. In the 80s, after Young Marble Giants, Stuart played with The Gist, Alison with Week End and Spike. The big news in 2018 is that, following the reissues by Tiny Global Productions label of The Gist and Alison and Spike's albums, they all decided to go back on the road. Stuart, Alison and Spike will perform a best-of set their whole carrer - and guess what - Phil and Drew Moxham might very well join in. Generally available / World.

The Zombie Zombie inevitably evokes bands such as Neu, Silver Apples, Suicide, Goblin or John Carpenter soundtracks. New album, LIVITY, out in October 2017 (Versatile); available for touring.
