Is good. But quite different. Lots of African drumming and less feedback.
it is a new direction...allen bennet learnt djembe and it rules.
you chekced out extreme music from africa
brutal tribal stuff
but bennett's produced this aFriacn band that play tradiional isntruments that are amplified via car batteries andcreate this scary noise.
It's something he's been interested in for a while
i meant william bennet.
no wonder i couldnt find the link.
i typed in google...'allan bennet extreme music africa'
I'll definitely be looking out for the Afro-Noise series. I agree that the noise genre is stale, too.
was the link to that Afro-noise thing he produced on that blog. I can't seem to find it.
afro-noise project and the artwork..tehre is a link to the band from w.africa...looking for it now
that it has becomce stale and so many people are doing it.
I liekd waht dead can dance did with world/music elctro and death in june wiht neofolknoise
but they tended to turn it down.
this afro-noise stuff is still in your face..i like that
extremet music from africa http://www.susanlawly.freeuk.com/africa/africa.html
that you can downlaod for free somewhere.
this is the band i was talking about
They were supposed to tour here in May but there were visa problems or some shite.
thats a bummer..i didnt realise they were even coming here i nteh first place though
are really amazing. I have thir first album, congatronics and I really can't recommend it enough.
if you're down with that.
do you need to be invited?
sometimes registrations are open but that doesn't happen too often.
Want me to pm you one?
so will check in a bit?
you already downloaded it?
my bittorrent is always slow though so it will probably take a little while longer.
isn't the title of the album; it's a series of recordings. Congotronics 2 is out on a double cd, and features different bands of this ilk.
It is also fucking brilliant.
But they're hardly noise are they? More tribal trance or something.
There's a compilation called Congotronics 2 which features alot of Konono's peers who are equally great.
the Congotronics 2 is definitely worth getting.
I posted mine before I read yours.
'Tard of the day or what?
"george best extreme music africa" instead.
'george' and 'africa' you get monbiot shit
actually out? i have the cd on pre order but not arrived yet?
By looking at a photo of knut the bear.
