Although Bert's immediate work is best known drumming in his wide array of musical projects he's been involved with such as Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore, Chrome Cranks, Lydia Lunch, and many more since the early s, the focus of his book isn't drum-centric as it is an encapsulation of the artistic world he's developed within.
Starting out with his teenage love of photography and his process of capturing the underground downtown figureheads as well as the emerging unknown no wave bands, Bob was just as much of an enthusiastic fan of music as he was a fixture in some of the most crucial music of the s, '90s, and beyond.
And that's what's really important in the long run, as his excitement for music bursts from each page, providing the springboard to his long-running life in bands on the fringe of the mainstream.
But Bob Bert wasn't just that figure at the intersection of commonality of several pivotal bands with an edge over the last 30 years, oh no. He also has not surprisingly impeccable taste in music and culture, which could only sprout forth in the s with an inevitable 'zine,' and thus, BB Gun Magazine was born.

The two men came at it from two radically different backgrounds: Leo, who started off studying classic composition and who, in his own words, "can't play jazz", and Martin, whose playing rests precisely on what he refers to a "jazz sensibility", on everything about interacting within and shaping the music implied by that term.
Like many great multi-instrumentalists on this album he plays basshe was keen to find a frame for the "attitude" they should seek in the session; Leo obliged by playing some Madoh, shamanic funeral music from Tajikistan, whose unique rhythms ended up informing both the guitar and drums on this record. Save for Henriksen's gorgeously melodic, flute-like lines, Krononaut was improvised live with no overdubs.
Yet, these soundscapes never feel jammy or unfocused, possibly because of the influence of another of the album's spiritual touchstones: avant-garde pioneer Morton Feldman. The sessions produce overall a subtle and intricate record that expands with each listen. Pointillistic and often quietly restless. Rough edges butting against discrete spaces.

This tour also included Bruce Gilbert of the legendary band Wire who was the opening act and joined them in the van for the entire tour. With Gilbert's nightly improvisations of minidisk field recording explosions running through a Sherman Filterbank, it left a profound effect on Wiltzie and Donne, and led to inspiring internal philosophical discussions on the importance of improvisation. After concluding six weeks in the van, the idea of creating a unique collaboration separate from their other projects was realized.

Reissue of Hermann Nitsch 's very first release, originally published 48 years ago by Edition Galerie Klewan in a limited edition of copies. It merely portrays the acoustic part of an 'abreaktionsspiel' a play of abreaction. Perception is under duress; sensibility is bending everyday under the barrage of nonsense. One must make note of whom one is and what one has become: look into the mirror of the planet-killers -- psychic cannibals infiltrate and contaminate once familiar and seemingly secure territories What powers these beasts?
What fuels discord and hatred? The behemoth of a 'civil' society? What are the weapons at one's disposal?

The dunning voice of today will introduce to you the core issues of tomorrow. As if a paralyzed mankind would not be able anymore to speak out the inevitable, a posthuman being has taken over. This entity is the master of ceremony who conducts an array of machines that will take further action to communicate, supported by complex polymeters. The repetition of measures and cycles of different lengths reflect the repeatedly pronounced statements of a narrative of awareness.
