Noyse Annoize


Einen guten Rutsch to one and all! Here, as vaguely promised a few weeks' back, is a special edition of Radio Abahachi on the subject of noise; perhaps best left until later if you're feeling in a delicate state after last night (some of the levels are a bit iffy, quite apart from the actual tracks), and perhaps best avoided altogether if you're a Pat Methany fan, as I've broken the cardinal rule of not being gratuitously negative about artists that other people might happen to like... Sorry. Anyway, from me, Basil (above, stoned on catnip), Amber and the rest of the Abahachi household, here's to another great year on the Spill, whatever's happening to the rest of the world...

Basil looks like a twin of our lovely Biko who we had for 16 years, world's best cat!
I look forward a little later on to 'radio 1&2'.

Goody! I'm glad you've posted this as an outcome of our earlier chat, I also decided to post a piece which originated there but has taken a twist of it's own; it's become a selection of pieces by groups/artists that I feel deserve a wider audience; the original idea were pieces that evolved from your prior comment re. the ongoing 'creative experiments' in music.

Re. Max Roach/Abbey Lincoln, Freedom Now is a nice catchy title to use on a '60's piece, given the political environment, it's totally wasted on that piece. It does nothing to draw me in, it repels me from two artists that I've previously enjoyed.

Incredible podcast Abahachi!

Liked all the tracks (I even found myself sitting by the computer with a pencil and paper - like in the good ol' Peel listening days!) and agreed with pretty much all you said about how familiarity breeds acceptance and eventually appreciation and enjoyment. Inspired stuff.

- going to make it my New Year Resolution to hunt down a vinyl copy of Machine Gun! (I did pick up a copy of a Broetzmann/Bennink album - there was a special "free jazz fair" at my local jazz emporium - which I really like, but Machine Gun sounds so much more extreme)

- is it just me or did the Rosemary's Baby track not have a hint of Pocahaunted??!! (or is that the other way round?)

Haven't been able to listen yet but have just transposed podcast to CD so I can take it back to bed and listen there. For British Pocahaunted fans, I found a CD on Rough Trade online and have it on order. Nothing available on Amazon.

You can tell that these days I don't usually buy anything but jazz: I'd never heard of Rough Trade Online, and so my orders for Pocahaunted cds have both been sent to the States and I presumably won't see them for weeks... I see what you mean about the Kryzstof Komeda track, Japanther; I think it's the effect of the naive, wordless vocals on top of weird harmonies.

As for Basil, he's our oldest cat, going on 13; not as mobile as he used to be, decidedly cranky at times (we've had to invest in those gadgets that diffuse cat pheromones through the house, to stop him expressing displeasure at e.g. not being allowed out at night or not being given enough chicken by pissing on things, including, on one spectacular occasion when he was unhappy that I'd been away for a few days, my leg) but a marvel among cats, and much too intelligent for his own good, let alone ours.

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am

still tempted to say: really good!
