flyer-Rebel-Up-25-apr

Ahoy folks!
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.   100-moons

‘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!
