ANDREW LILES - LIVE IN PARIS OCTOBRE 2007
Andrew Liles est un musicien prolifique qui aligne de nombreuses collaborations, notamment avec Nurse With Wound. On l'a d'ailleurs vu au concert du Trabendo en juin dernier. Il est revenu à Paris le 27 Octobre, pour un concert aux Voûtes sous son propre nom, mais en compagnie de Jac Berrocal, autre dangereux énergumène qui a travaillé avec Stapleton et légende vivante (et alcoolisée) de la scène Underground française.
Andrew Liles sort actuellement une série de 12 albums intitulée The Vortex Vault sur le label Beta-Lactam Ring Records (Nurse With Wound, Edward Ka-Spel/Legendary Pink Dots, Volcano the Bear, Coil, Current 93...). [Update/à la demande du cuisinier, je retire le lien de son blog, ainsi que ses commentaires.]
Continuo, in his blog, said :
Now a permanent member of the Nurse With Wound posse, Andrew Liles has gained quite a reputation with a series of records, recently on Beta Lactam, operating on the margins of crepuscular, decadent song and gloomy electronic sounds.
This engaging performance was elaborated with short instrumental sequences made of 2 or 3 sound samples at a time, with additional live electronic treatments, and prominent use of treated and looped voice samples, the latter quite unsettling at times.
Legendary french musician Jac Berrocal – famous for his 1977 LP ‘Parallèles’ featuring the song ‘Rock’n Roll Station’, his band Penetration live CD on Hat Hut, as well as his different appearances on Steven Stapleton’s records – joined at the end of the concert. I don’t know what was the plan if ever there was one, but Liles was decidedly in a ‘Jack’s Bicycle’ mood, to which Berrocal failed to respond, for some reason. His trumpet meandered from shard of sound to the next, in a quite far out free jazz vein. He brought some wilderness to the very controlled dish Liles had been delivering previously.
A technical note: this was recorded with a MiniDisc from the audience. The beginning should be listened to at a low level, since things get pretty loud later, especially at 10:57, the loudest part on my recording. Nonetheless, it deserves to be listened to at high volume, according to your amp’s capacities. A trully kicking ass performance.
