Exotic Pylon Recordings Launch Party
A night of doomed cabaret and screwed melodrama
Hong Kong in the 60s
Casio Heartache and Radiophonic liquid pop, this UK trio have just released their debut album My Fantoms to great acclaim. Fragile, atmospheric and understated Christopher Greenberg, Tim Scullion and Mei Yau Kan will drop you in to summery melodramas of your own making. Grab the new album via their website here (http://hongkonginthe60s.com/) and check out an Exotic Pylon session from last year here (http://exoticpylon.com/pages/2010/11-20-10.html).
If H. P. Lovecraft lived on Montague Terrace (in Blue)… Jonny Perl and Robert Conroy are a transatlantic duo living out a cinematic fantasy of dark romance and sci-fi melodrama and as Misty Roses they utilise guitar, electronics and vocals to shoot 60’s easy-listening glamour and European grandeur in to the 31st Century, and tonight is a celebration of their debut release for Exotic Pylon Recordings (http://exoticpylon.com/pages/label.html). You can check out a session the band did for Mining For Gold here (http://exoticpylon.com/pages/2009/10-30-09.html) and check their website here: http://mistyroses.com/
Radio Joy present Beuys will be Beuys
An exploratory offshoot of the magisterial and defiant Band of Holy Joy- Johny Brown, Inga Tillere, James S. Finn, Cris Lapthorne, Chris Brierley will be bringing piano, voice, electronics, violin and projections to present the debut performance of Beuys will be Beuys an incantatory tale of the eponymous Joseph running wild in the East End. Expect occult punk cabaret soundscapes. Listen to Band of Holy Joy at the Pylon here (http://exoticpylon.com/pages/2010/05-22-10.html) and check out all things Holy Joy here (http://www.bandofholyjoy.co.uk/).
Where do you start? From the lush pop orchestrations of her dalliance with ZTT in the 80’s through collaboration with Donald Cammell via Paris, London, New York and Japan with Gualtier, Lagerfeld and Michael Nyman. Born out of punk culture Anne Pigalle is a true and utterly incomparable STAR – poet, writer, photographer, singer, performer and painter. Her current work is based around her new album L’Ame Erotique and is a highly surreal and erotically charged cabaret that is equal parts Piaf, Cohen and Bataille. Go here for all things Pigalle: http://www.annepigalle.com/
Doomed tragi-comic operatic free-blues – a monastic howl of funereal giallo rock… Father Murphy are sparse and incendiary and one of the finest bands in the world right now. Fresh from (highly appropriately) supporting Swans in Russia they’re going to bring the house down in Grand Guignol style. Catch them on the pylon here: http://exoticpylon.com/pages/08-22-09.html and here: http://exoticpylon.com/pages/2009/12-13-09.html . Website here: http://www.myspace.com/reverendmurphy

The New Video for “Turn to Crime”:
NY metropolitan area pop group Nova Social will play at Coco66 in Brooklyn on Thursday, October 14. In addition to brand new material, the band will play songs from their 6-song self-titled EP (released in Fall 2009 on Big Sleep Records), which mates their ambitious pop songwriting with electronic and dance music influences.
In addition to founding members David Nagler and Thom Soriano, Nova Social will have an expanded live unit featuring synths, vocalists and a live string trio.
Also on the bill are Misty Roses, chanteuse Robert Conroy’s cinematic pop combo, and Kesa Gatame, the new modular synth & vocal project from David Grant (Direct From Hollywood Cemetery, Heks Orkest).
Nova Social has released two full-lengths on their Big Sleep Records imprint, The Jefferson Fracture and Other Words from Tomorrow’s Dictionary: and contributed their cover of The Specials’ “Little Bitch” to the ’80s movie tribute High School Reunion.
Singer David Nagler served as musical director and co-producer on Chris Mills’ acclaimed orchestral pop release The Wall to Wall Sessions(which led to his inclusion in The L Magazine’s “Ultimate Brooklyn Supergroup”), arranged a Welsh men’s choir for the Mekons’ Jon Langford and plays a variety of instruments for John Wesley Harding & The English UK, Chris Lee and others.
‘Poppers: Photographic Portraits by Ruth Bayer’
New York Book Launch - September 2nd, 2010
Photographer Ruth Bayer will be launching the paperback of her ‘Poppers’ book at:
Envoy Enterprises Gallery, 131 Chrystie St, NYC 10002 USA. 212.226.4555
With a live spoken word performance from Little Annie, a live musical performance by Misty Roses, and tunes spun all evening by DJ Mike Grimes.
“To capture a moment in which the subject loses control, or at least slackens their
grip on the reins, is a frequent goal in photography…”
Fascinated by the watery, dilated eyes and sensually heightened faces of those she
saw taking poppers in nightclubs, Ruth set out to capture those fleeting moments of
euphoric aware/unawareness in the series of photographs presented in this book.
Paperback. 88pp. Published 2010 by Tyto Alba.
