Fri 25 April > Rebel Up! Soundclash *what king?* night @ OCCII, A’dam w/ Ian Nagoski (US), Cian Nugent & The Cosmos (IE) + dj Eddy De Clercq
a new Rebel Up! Soundclash night coming up again! *what king*?
IAN NAGOSKI returns to Europe for another series of his hypnotic interactive lectures on disappearing music of the 20th Century, this time with an exploration entitled “100 Moons: Stories of Great Forgotten Musicians and the Boundaries of Humanness from 78rpm Records”. His label Canary Records (pressed and distributed by Mississippi Records) reissues early 20th century recordings in languages other than English like a modern day Harry Smith. In the past year, he has published acclaimed collections of Hindustani classical vocal music (100 Moons and Kesarbai Kerkar 1944-54), Greek urban folk music (Rita Abatzi – 1933-37), the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Widow’s Joy: Eastern European Immigrant Dances, 1925-30), and published writing in Yeti, Sound American, Ephemerotera Quarterly and The Wire. In recent years, he also published compilations on the Dust-to-Digital (Black Mirror: Reflections in Global Musics) and Tompkins Square (To What Strange Place: Music of the Ottoman-American Diaspora) labels. Nagoski’s work is now highly regarded, with high profile admirers ranging from DJ/rupture to Henry Rollins, and you can also still read several interview with and articles by him from 2013 at the Sound American site.
‘Lecture’ may seem too formal a term for something so immersive and transporting as one of Ian’s 90-minute explorations of the disappearing music he unearths and its social/cultural roots and routes. Ian shares his love of his findings both in words and by listening to and discussing various carefully chosen shellac gems with you.
CIAN NUGENT & THE COSMOS (NO QUARTER RECORDS)
Debut tour for Cian Nugent & The Cosmos from Ireland; a 5 piece band (guitar, bass, viola, drums, organ) lead by guitar player Cian Nugent, performing material from/based on his album ‘Born With The Caul’ on No Quarter Records, just came out this November 12th.
After exploring the acoustic guitar on his 2011 album “Doubles “, VHF Records, which was acclaimed by the likes of Pitchfork ( http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15618-doubles/ ) and The Wire “(…) Nugent has: already mastered dynamics, articulation and tone. He introduces each new melody and change of emotional tenor at precisely the right moment to keep you on the edge with him”, with “Born with Caul”, Cian has now moved to electric, where he is equally stunning; and his music has enrichened with Blues, Country and Psych Rock influences.
DJ EDDY DE CLERCQ – TOWNSHIP JIVE & KWELA JAZZ VINYL SET (1940-60)
The Belgian but Amsterdam based longtime dj Eddy de Clercq will play his collection of rare vintage South African jive & twisting gems from International Library of African Music (ILAM).This is joyous, irrepressible stuff, which sounds much fresher in its original incarnation than it ever did in American appropriations (yes, Paul Simon, we’re talking to you!). check out his excellent Soul Safari blog!

Another fun Contrabanda night coming up in Bonnefooi for all sounds latino, afro & global!
After our last fully packed night with Uproot Andy, we like to present > > >
DJ Cucurucho (PT) (Groovalizacion Radio)
DJ Cucurucho, co-founder and selector of international Groovalizacion Radio, designs a DJ SET blending contemporary ethnic music all over the world from the vintage sounds to the tropical bass. Best contemporary and classic dance music together from wildly different times and places, connecting “East” and “West”, acoustic and electronic, traditional and hyper-modern, Dj Cucurucho creates hybrid sets, making “Ancient-Futurist” groove collages!
Support by the Rebel Up! dj’s.
what Bonnefooi says about us: These guys are some of Brussels’ most underestimated Global Groove Dj’s, with a musical network from Rajasthan to New Yorkistan and a musical selection that goes even farther and deeper into tropicalism and obscure global dance music. Sebcat is also a fulltime musical nexus, the way he blends his global grooves together in a party he also re-arranges, feeds and stimulates musical culture: as a re-distributor of records (importing Sahel Sounds records of Sublime Frequencies), in writings and research (check his writings for Gonzo Circus or his compilation on Sublime Frequencies titled *Rajasthan Street Music*) or as a curator of countless parties and concerts. Leblanc is an experienced dj & collector for the more rougher contemporary street dance music from around & below the equator. Also a distributor of African field recording records, curator of global music documentaries and a darn great cook of global dishes. Whatever you will get from him, in sound or food, it will be filled with specials spices and hotness. Caliente!

SebCat came back from Peru with lots of good vinyl > about 35 LP’s and 60 singles of Chicha Cumbia from 60′s & 70′s.
This sunday afternoon, he’ll be playing a special chicha cumbia vinyl set at the Bonnefooi from 16:00 til 20:00.
Free in as always, and there should be some special Peruvian cocktail deals (pisco sour & chilcano). and maybe even some ceviche tapas portions!
Chicha cumbia is the Peruvian style of psychedelic cumbia originated in the Amazonian north and taken to the big cities, becoming famous allover the country and stil is! In those times, the chicha cumbia was looked down upon by many people (of higher so-called *sophisticated* classes), seeing it as music for the poor, the drunk, the criminals, the immigrants from the north or highlands. Indeed, it was the music of the poor labourers, those who lived & worked in shantytowns, music that sung about their hardships, giving them inspiration at the same time. All this makes for a wonderfull vintage style that possesses a special power through enchanting melodies, tremolo guitars and strong lyrics.
The biggest bands of that era were Los Destellos, Los Diablos Rojos, Los Mirlos, Los Shapis, Chacalón Y La Nueva Crema, Juaneco Y Su Combo, Los Wemblers de Iquitos and many more. If you like to get this music, we can highly recommend the excellent Roots of Chicha compilations on Brussels label Crammed Discs or the refined Cumbia Beat compilations on Vampisoul.
