Alvarius B (usa) + Ignatz (b) + bààn (b)
a night with smokey beers on strings & skins:
Alan Bishop is an American musician, most famous for being the bassist and vocalist of experimental rock band Sun City Girls.He has also released solo material under the aliases Alvarius B. and Uncle Jim. In the early 1980s Bishop played in the short-lived band Paris 1942 with Maureen Tucker of the Velvet Underground, and was briefly a member of skate punk group JFA. Bishop is now a member of The Invisible Hands and Dwarfs of East Agouza. He is the co-founder, along with Hisham Mayet, of Sublime Frequencies.
Ignatz is playing a solo set with new material in his own unique style. Get into Bram Devens his universe. Ignatz’s songs stem from a familiar stripped folk framework, with Devens’ delivery recalling the louche primitivism of V.U. or Henry Flynt Where Devens’ fretwork is adorned, it is executed with a refined coarseness. A voice recedes from the heart of the song into a dislocated, cracked drawl.
bààn is a duo of keyboards and drums. they could be Fabulous Diamonds or Silver Apples, but they sound like their own. More stretched and spaced out, then the ones mentioned. Music for a late night session to lock yourself in.
