Songbook 5 makes Volcanic Tongue's Tip Of The Tongue

David Keenan:

Stunning new album of deconstructed/overloaded avant rock wildmanisms dedicated to the memory of Lou Reed and Carlos Artiach: Songbook #5 was created in five parts between 7th-8th May 2013 in Melbourne. Part one involved five musicians – Mattin, Joel Stern of Sky Needle, Dean Roberts of Thela/White Winged Moth et al, Alex Cuffe and Andrew McLellan of Greg Boring and Bitter Defeat – who recorded five spontaneous ‘songs’ each in response to five different concepts. Part two consisted of a 25 minute concert in five minute sections structured by five instructions based on the song titles given to members of the audience. Part three saw Mattin recording vocals for the five songs in the form of a ‘singing’ lecture where the audience only heard his vocals as he listened to the backing track on headphones. Part four consisted of superimposing recordings of parts one, two and three to create a 25 minute album consisting of five x five minute songs while part five is the release of the album proper in an edition of 555 copies. This is one of the most rocking and crankily DIY releases from Mattin to date. His vocals orbit the whole shackles-raising school of a Genesis P-Orridge or John Lydon circa PiL while the band come over like a post-Industrial fourth world folk punk orchestra, with ripping fuzz leads, stumpy Moondog-style rhythms, all-out psych/rock blare and moments of weird stunted dialogue that come over like Peter Christopherson’s use of suspect tapes. Can’t think of anyone who combines such a degree of formal rigour w/creative binds and yet who makes rock music that sounds so great that it more than transcends its critical genesis. Another killer from Mattin and the cream of the Oz/NZ underground, highly recommended!

The Basque anarchist artist Mattin has spent the last decade establishing a highly distinctive practice in noise and ‘free’ improvisational music. His work pays homage to the histories of these genres, while simultaneously undertaking a provocative and often humorous interrogation of the rules and standards to which they adhere—the proposed anti-sociality of noise, the implicit ‘freedom’ in improvisation. Mattin considers this testing to be a process of ‘distributing vulnerability’ across the core assumptions made by audiences and performers alike.

Disembraining are bringing Mattin to Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane in May, to stage a series of non-concerts, concerts, silences, conversations, and other activities in response to the question ‘What isn’t music?’
