Bill Nace Vinyl, CD & tapes by Bill Nace at Norman Records
Free noise rock duo Body/Head are Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth, Free Kitten) and Bill Nace (X.O.4, Vampire Belt, Ceylon Mange). They bring together numerous oxymoronic terms: dark/light, black/white, emotion/analysis. Hence, the name of the band 'Body/Head'. Not necessarily oxymoronic, but you get the idea. The Switch is their second full-length studio album, following previous records for Matador and live albums via Deste Foundation and Feeding Tube Records.
Body/Head is Kim Gordon and Bill Nace, each hunched over their avant-guitars and using all their experience from Sonic Youth, Ceylon Mange and so on to whip up feedback storms and heartfelt noises. Gordon also donates some of her beat poetry vocals to No Waves, a document of a set performed live in 2014. Out on Matador.
Steve Baczkowski / Chris Corsano / Bill Nace
Exciting times for Golden Lab Records. 'Stolen Car' was recorded in January 2013 and performed by power trio Baczkowski, Corsano and Nace, featuring Flaherty napkin art on the front and back covers. The title track is a frenzied implosion of free jazz improvisation built upon layers of pensive, slightly unhinged sounds. Side B consists of three short, but equally wild compositions.
