cracking live, but not so hot on the e.p. I've heard.
Was getting abit annoyed with their loops live, most of them are prerecorded and to break the awkwardness they just dance for a few seconds.Hope the new stuff is not like this live.
the rest all seemed to be done live, to me.
They trigger the loops, do an annoying indie dance and play really, as little as possible. However, I did hear that they are trying to rework their songs or just try and make it possible to either play more in future, whether its old or new material. Still, they're a top live band really.
Last time I saw them the guitarist was missing though, and the singer had to loop a load of extra stuff himself, had to stop singing to do so half the time and extend everything (though also cut the set a bit short). Bit confused now.
Fred Frith & Marc Ribot can be mentioned in one breath with Frisell, although I must say that Ribot, to my ears, is usually better off when he's surrounded by people who can restrain him (Zorn being the foremost candidate)
Have you heard Painted Desert? It's an album with Robert Quine, Ikue More and Marc Ribot. Mori makes the laptop electronics she's renowned for and its accompinement by Quine and Ribot's guitar playing is stunning giving the album a real nice and warm feeling while sometimes fuzzing out a bit to keep snap your attention back.
Apparently brilliant live and the two EPs they released last year were great too.
Continuous Battle of Order
both on spotify.
It's absolutely ages since I've seen them so I couldn't quite work it out.
they use some sort or short loop though i think, they don't make layers or anything.
Surely they have to use some sort of loops to execute some of those songs though, no? Otherwise some of those songs live would just smell of McDonalds gerkins.
Probably the best "looper" I've ever seen. Mainly violin though. Does he still count?
loops guitar, keyboards, voice. not a band.
They do a bit...
Peter Broderick (lots of instruments looping rather than guitar)
Peter Broderick is a good shout
Les Savy Fav - Seth Jabour certainly used to do some looping when he was the sole guitarist.
