ever. It's unlike anything I've heard, and it's even better because I discovered this CD by accident. I thought the guy was the guitarist for another band, and asked to buy a CD, and he whips out all these CDs I've never seen before, and to play along, I buy one of them at random.
But yeah, Interstellar Chemistry is pretty mindblowing, it's really expanded my conceptions of what can be done with guitar, since the majority of it is guitar. But it's not masturbatory improv, like a lot of solo avant garde dudes, he constructs consise musical landscapes from all the weird sounds he's albe to conjure up. With most experimental music, it can nail down the interesting sounds, but often fails when trying to connect them together in an engaging way, and he's been able to do this.
And he has tremendous control over his instrument, which makes me respect him even more that he doesn't try to bust out some 80's solo in the middle of this record. I've heard some of his free jazz and don caballero like projects, and he can shred like a bastard. But for him, it's about the music, not exhibitionism, each of the songs are unique.
And I'd hesitate to call it experimental, since it's very accessible. It's how the word experimental should be used, I guess. Check him out if you can, downloading, whatever, here are some reviews if you need further enticement, though its for different cds, so I can't vouch for them:
http://shop.store.ya.../bihosracd.html

As long as I'm pimping musicians who don't get the attention they deserve, check out Raking Bombs, a local band. Kind of ATDish, but with their own unique sound. Steadily rising the ranks of hte new hardcore scene, opening for the likes of Plot to Blow up the Eiffel Tower and Blood Brothers, so it couldn't hurt to get familiar with the name.

I went and had a download. The two songs from their website are pretty cool.

If you like those, you should like the whole album, because each song is very distinct, actually.

Yeah, I was a little hesitant because I bought it based on those two songs, but all 8 tracks are solid. It's cheap too, like 6 bucks american (they're canadian), and you should be able to get it off their website:
www.rakingbombs.com
somewhere...my only complaint with the album is it's only 28 minutes long.

You might be able to d/l it, I saw it once on soulseek, but it's pretty rare.

But look for Bill Horist's stuff too, again, his stuff is amazing.

I was actually just referring to all of the people born out of wedlock who have read this thread, no insult meant at all.

I got sir Horists newsletter, he's touring the west coast, any of you so inclined to check him out can do so if you're in the area, it's long, and I think he's also talking about his Don Caballero type side project, the one they're recording for now, as well as his upcoming solo album. Get Interstellar Chemistry if you can...:

Hey everyone!
Despite the lengthening days and that ever-growing
luminous sphere in the sky, time seems to be racing
by! June is shaping up to be a darn busy month here
at the fort. We've completed another stage of Mische
Eddin's upcoming record thanks to the fabulously
expert Matt Chamberlain. His ceaseless creativity and
brilliant drumming has afforded us a lot to work with
as we develop the material throughout the summer! In
other recording blather, I am very excited to be
heading into the studio with trumpeter Lesli Dalaba
and violinist Eyvind Kang. We will be recording as a
follow-up to our appearance at Polestar (June 12-see
details below).
On June 1 I had the Honor of being involved with a
recording as part of a memorial for the late Matthew
Sperry, a phenomenal bassist and friend to many of us.
He was killed last year riding his bike in Oakland.
The recording was organized, and music composed by,
the inimitable Dave Knott and involved a number of
great string players including Steve Barsotti, Suzie
Kozawa, Tari Nelson-Zagar, Tom Swafford, Jason Glover,
Mary Gross, Nancy Wharton, Lori Goldston, Stuart
Dempster and others. This recording will be broadcast
on Sonarchy (KEXP 90.3FM) on Saturday night June 5,
the actual anniversary of Matt's death. There will be
a special Memorial performance at Polestar before the
broadcast. Not a person who knew Matt doesn't miss
this guy.
I think that's about all there is to say for now.
Below is the monthly concert listings which includes a
complete schedule of my upcoming West Coast tour with
Marco Fernandes (June 19-28). If you, your loved
ones, friends, casual acquaintances, nemeses or
enemies are on the Coast, do send them along! OK,
have a happy June and hope to see you out!

BILL HORIST/MARCO FERNANDES WEST COAST TOUR
Seattle guitarist/improviser Bill Horist and San
Diego soundartist Marcos Fernandes embark on a joint
west coast tour in support of their respective new
releases "Lyric/Suite" and "The Phonographers Union:
Live on Sonarchy Radio" both on Accretions. Horist and
Fernandes will perform both solo and collaborative duo
sets during this trek which takes them from Tijuana,
Mexico to Seattle, Washington with stops in San Diego,
Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Portland, Olympia
and more.
Bill Horist searches for methods by which to
relinquish control over his guitar in his attempt to
navigate the challenge that is both solo and truly
improvised performance. His recent prepared guitar
work has been stripped of ancillary devices. This
fosters the often surprising but subtle harmonic
and rhythmic complexities of simple, treated vibration
to flourish, without the competition of loops,
effects, and, by extension, control.
Marcos Fernandes mixes field recordings and live
electronics to create 'possible spaces' where
listeners encounter an imaginary world of sound and
rhythm. These performances blend improvisation with
phonography reflecting his multicultural identity and
a continuing fascination with musical
cross-fertilization.

Strange I didn't think of this earlier. I ripped them onto my computer, so if anyone would like to get CDs by either artist, either off of soulseek or AIM feel free to do so. Last bump. EVAR.

Almost a year has passed...I'm going to try this again. Horist is about to tour Japan, and play with people from the Ruins and some other bands.
Here are some reviews of his work:
Interstellar Chemistry
Lyric/Suite

I have both albums so PM me if you want them, or get them off me on soulseek.

See him live, if you somehow get the chance. I think it adds a whole other dimension to his CDs because you realize most of stuff he's doing on the CDs guitar, and with very little manipulation from effects.
