This program has been postponed until further notice.
This installment of False Harmonics features GRID and Brutal Measures.
GRID, the experimental trio of Matt Nelson (Battle Trance; Elder Ones) on saxophone, Tim Dahl (Child Abuse; Lydia Lunch Retrovirus) on bass, and Nick Podgurski (New Firmament; Feast of the Epiphany) on drums, have returned to NNA Tapes for the release of their colossal sophomore album, Decomposing Force.
Recorded live in one room with no overdubs and mixed to 1/2 inch tape, GRID builds off of their earth-rattling self-titled debut. Decomposing Force relies on the composite sound of Nelson, Dahl, and Podgurski interacting and reacting to each individual as well as their combined output—the continual flowing-in of individual and agglomeration serves to add dimension to the blackness and possibility of GRID’s musical ecosystem. There is no showcasing of any single player in this amorphous system. The impact of what is created shall be carried by all.
Brutal Measures combines the dynamic spoken word histrionics of Lydia Lunch, one of the genres most controversial performers, with the improvisational virtuosity of Weasel Walter to create an intimate evening of musical vérité.
Queen of No Wave, muse of The Cinema of Transgression, writer, musician, poet, spoken word artist, and photographer, Lydia Lunch has released too many musical projects to tally, has been on tour for decades, has published dozens of articles, half a dozen books and simply refuses to just shut up. She continues to release new music as well as re-issuing classic material such as her spoken word indictment against patriarchal idiocy, The Conspiracy of Women, through Nicolas Jaar’s label Other People.
Weasel Walter is a Brooklyn, New York based multi-instrumentalist, composer and improviser best known for leading the seminal punk-jazz/no-wave/brutal-prog band The Flying Luttenbachers between 1991 and 2007 on 16 full-length releases.
