If you want to see me on the 25th I’m afraid it’s going to cost you £32. Also, apologies to anyone who plays guitar.

Grateful for these stateside props. Looks like Rare Frequency doing good work there.

“PETE UMNO PRESSURE

Pete Um’s songular short stories of almost noise-core shortness actually demand in the rarest cases more time for verification on our part. When he e.g. in “floorclothes”* (as a Genesis P. Orridge as such would understand it) in “The God Of War” calls “Mr. Tony Blair” in a short mantra, no further minutes of filler are needed. Pete Um presents himself here as the master of the uber strangeing* of cantilevered Vaudeville/Air conglomerations and through this he reaches a partial depersonification and an onomatopoeic utopianism, as perhaps only the Residents have ***** him during their best moments. One may also gladly label something like this modern Krautrock. At any rate, Gagarin Records serves as exactly the right place of refuge for this pictoral music existing in a world of wonder to the power of 18. (Gagarin Rec.) Donis”

* a direct translation. I think it might be as meaningless in German.
***** no idea.

Persona non grata? The last review?   Leave a comment

Perhaps the last review of No Pressure, but a goodie.

A hurried translation from Felix:

Pete Um’s short story songs in concise noise-core format indeed don’t
require any more length in most cases in order to be verified fom us.
For example, when he conjures “Mr Tony Blair” in a “floor dress” – as
Mr P-Orridge would consider (wear) it – it really doesn’t need any
more “filling” minutes to express that.
Pete Um impersonates a master of “incredible alienation” of
cantilevered Vaudeville-air-mixes and sometimes achieves a
de-personalization and onomatopoetic utopia that arguably only the
Residents have touched (sharpened) in their best moments. This can be
easily labeled as modern Krautrock in the best sense. At any rate,
Gagarin Records is the perfect address for this 18-track-wonderworld
of imaginary music.

A young friend of mine has used some of my stuff for the soundtrack to this footage of Cambridge stencil artist Maya at work.
