Skullflower - Gondal's Queen (2016)

– Vooruit 17​.​05​.​2015

"A live recording, made during the Ultra Eczema Strafstudie night at Vooruit in Ghent, one of the most beautiful ballrooms in Flanders. Four turbulent parts blended across two sides. It is sometimes hard to hear who’s doing what here: vocals and strings, tapes, bells and percussion become an oddball of dust, blown into the narrow streets of improv; none of the ‘free music solo rules’ are obeyed here. Somebody else, living in that same street as it were, mentioned that ”it sounds like a whole village of monks turning against buddhism, trading smiles for grunts”. Ghédalia Tazartès (master of dramatic vocals that travel from Tibet to John Lydon), Chris Corsano (still the last drummer on earth), and Dennis Tyfus (trying hard to listen, for once) have played together three times and for as long as it will remain a challenge to properly record together, this LP is exactly what it should be. Limited to 300 copies. Offset printed sleeve with collage art by DT, plus two inserts with liner notes by Byron Coley." cat n° [UE199]
