David Toop / Jan Hendrickse / Cath Roberts / CUEE

A split here, containing a fresh and exciting collaboration on each side. On side A, experimental music’s elder statesman David Toop pairs with Jan Hendrikse in order to actualise a text score by Chieko Shiomi, very quietly. On side B, Cath Roberts, the sax leader of Sloth Racket, leads the large City University Experimental Ensemble in a performance of new work of hers. Out on multi.modal.

General Strike
Danger in Paradise

General Strike were a band from the 1980s who made strange, Sun Ra-inspired dub/electronica/hauntology music. They released an album in 1984 ca;;ed 'Danger in Paradise' that has never been available on vinyl. This looks like a superb LP and one I will be trying to get my mitts on as soon as the 17th of May rolls around.

David Toop + Paul Burwell
Suttle Sculpture

David Toop has been investigating free improvised music through writing and performance for many years now: this release documents his work with Paul Burwell in the form of a 1977 session in Brussels. Suttle Sculpture has never previously been released in any form, and they offer an insight into the creation and development of music that still sounds cutting edge. Vinyl from Sub Rosa.

Max Eastley / Steve Beresford / Paul Burwell / David Toop
Whirled Music

Oren Ambarchi’s Black Truffle label presents the first ever reissue of this 1980 collaboration of David Toop, Steve Beresford, Paul Burwell and Max Eastley, major improvising musicians all. Whirled Music features exclusively whirled instruments: e.g. objects and instruments that are spun around in the air, producing a whole variety of sonic effects. Rare and intriguing material, from both live performances and outdoor recordings.

Ken Ikeda + David Toop
Skin Tones

Super-veteran music-author and sound-worker David Toop teamed up with former David Lynch collaborator Ken Ikeda for an improvised collaborative performance last year, and the recording is now receiving release on Home Normal. Skin Tone is a careful weaving together of objects, steel guitar, synth and flutes: a composed-in-the-moment suite from two total pros. Edition of 500 CD copies.

David Toop
Life On The Inside

New work from sound artist, sound writer, and Flying Lizard member David Toop. Life On The Inside was originally designed as part of the Pierre Besson exhibition, and sounds like its sonic structures would fit very comfortably into a gallery space. The LP is released on the Sub Rosa label, and is limited to just 300 copies.
