Milk Me Presents: Crack Cloud

 

Crack Cloud is a multimedia collective, comprising members from different cities, ethnicities and origins, who contribute to the sound, visual aesthetic and beyond – but their latest release, Anchoring Point, is helmed by seven key members. Taking its sonic influence from the likes of Gang Of Four, Fela Kuti and Talking Heads, its visuals from hip hop and the found footage aesthetic of the ‘90s, and its political ethos from thinkers like Malcolm X and Lydia Lunch, Anchoring Point is a barbed, lurching thing, a cacophony of punchy fragments, funk-laced bass riffs and experimental soundscapes. “We wanted to be expressive in a way that could be erratic but cohesive at the same time,” explains Choy. “Emotionally, it zig-zags. We wanted it to take a life of its own; a life in flux.”

There’s a political undertone to much of Anchoring Point – its lyrics, its sound, even the EP’s artwork, which declares itself to be “how they refer to the latest vendible thing from Crack Cloud. For fun and profit!” But if there’s an agenda to their music, says Choy, “the agenda is humanity and compassion. We invite people to meditate openly about their privilege. Their vice. Their pride and their vulnerability.” Both he and partner Mohammad Ali Sharar are immigrants who struggled with addiction – Choy’s triggered by the death of his father, Mohammad Ali from the cultural turbulence that came from the racism he experienced from outside his community, and the rejection from within it when he started to question Islam. They’ve redefined themselves in sobriety and work together in the mental health industry, facilitating safe spaces based on the harm reduction model for vulnerable and marginalized people in Downtown Vancouver. Crack Cloud is informed by these experiences, past and present.

These experiences inform the work in ways Choy and the collective don’t always attempt to tame or control. ‘Empty Cell’, for example, is a “stream-of-consciousness piece,” made up of different voices from different angles. It follows EP opener ‘Graph Of Desire’, a punky duet of sorts, with shades of early Bowie, that comes in at just a minute and a half long, and precedes ‘Image Craft’, which has a melody like a ticking clock and a video that evokes Lynch’s Eraserhead. “Each song on Anchoring Point,” says Choy, “is one piece of the pie.”

And what does the pie as a whole look like? Choy’s not sure exactly. “It creates a messy picture. We hope people can resonate with its messiness. Thoughts and feelings are ephemeral and there is always a new insight to have and a new connection to be sought after, and it’s a celebration of that. Old and new. And the Anchoring Point in-between.”

⊙ ØRESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE ⊙
ØSC is an ever changing music collective from Denmark and Sweden that play totally on the spot improvised deep trip space rock music. They have released 25 (!!!) records since 2006. Music for your mind to escape the Matrix.
– latest release:
“Chatoyant Breath” – May 16, 2018
“ØSC had been at the Black Tornado recording back in November but our friend Gary (Yawning Man) was in town and wanted to jam. It had been a long time since the main touring band of ØSC (Nick, Jiri, Mogens, myself) had been in the studio. We grabbed Martin, who plays with Nick, Jiri and Mogens in the Univerzals as well as with Jiri in his band, Fri Galaxe to play drums. He had played quite a few gigs with us in Denmark the last years. Nicklas from Papir, was a great choice to play with Gary as both are fans of each other and we love to play with Nicklas. We had a cool band.
This session was pretty fast, all done in one day and just 5 jams recorded. The vinyl is an edited version of the jams, while the CD features extended versions of the tracks so you can hear more or less the entire course of the musical journey. The music on these sections is more spaced out, relaxed and exploratory as it flows and weaves and grows tentacles to tickle and scratch your inner thoughts. Enjoy the sensations.” – Dr. Space, 2018

⊙ BLACK MOON CIRCLE ⊙
BMC from Trondheim is dedicated to dark psychedelic space rock, driven by a disposition towards prolonged jams.
– latest release:
“Flowing into the 3rd Dimension” – August 25, 2017
https://blackmooncircle.bandcamp.com/
https://www.facebook.com/blackmooncircle

⊙ MOUNTAIN DUST ⊙
Mountain Dust’s set was a blast of cymbal crashing, headbanging hard rock laced with doom metal and a sensible dosage of psychedelic pretensions. The songs weren’t excuses for aimless guitar wankfests, but slithering heavy jams (the bass player laid hypnotic grooves on his Rickenbacker) that turned in on themselves like a snake eating its tail. Organ à la Deep Purple gave the music a gothic nuance, but the big surprise was lap steel guitar fed through an effects rack.
The band reinvented their blues-metal sound — a genre now as outmoded as bell-bottoms and songs about scoring with underage groupies — with well-crafted riffs that make you forget it’s all the same 4/4 rhythm you’ve heard a million times. They had masterful dynamics and pauses: the music breathed, but it breathed like Godzilla. For four thrashers who look like head shop regulars, Mountain Dust didn’t play a bum note all night.

CANCELLED: Heavy Mental: In Zaire, Tau

Swamp Booking and MILK ME and Schmutz present:
Heavy Mental concert series: #3

In Zaire

Tribal psychsters In Zaire are just as confusing to pin down sound-wise as is their origin. The quartet bring the audience into a psychedelic trip through a unique mix of dub-funk rhythms, African percussion, eastern bass guitar melodies, drifting Arabic voices, minimal electronic sounds and not too hidden heavy metal influences.
After their 2013 debut album “White Sun Black Sun”, In Zaire returns with “Visions Of The Age To Come”, just released on Sound Of Cobra Records in the spring, an eightfold kaleidoscope coming into blissful focus which sees the band dancing feverishly towards the edges of hard rock heritage and psychedelic outlands.

TAU

The stories of myth tell us that the desert is a place of transformation where the physical emptiness of the landscape creates a potent space for connecting with the invisible and intangible forces of the numinous. History is full of seekers, artists, mystics and musicians who have travelled to the desert to enter into such an experience

It was after being lead on a pilgrimage through “Wirikuta”, the sacred desert of the Wixarika, native to the land the land of north west Mexico that Dublin-born Berlin resident Nunutzi was inspired to form Tau, meaning Father Sun. A shifting and fluid collaborative project with Nunutzi at the helm along with partner-in-sound, Venezuelan-born Gerald Pasqualin, the result is Tau’s debut album released through Fuzz Club on Sept 9th.

TAU TAU TAU is a wild archaic scream from the heart, woven from a seamless thread of prayers, chants, psychedelic invocations, and as Nunutzi says “songs of praise” in English, Spanish and Gaelic, shaken through pre-hispanic drums, bells, shakers, synths and acoustic guitar played “through an amp with a very shitty pick up that gives a weird sound.”

UUUU
(uk/swe – new band with members of COIL, DOME, WIRE, TOMAGA)
!!! GERMAN PREMIERE SHOW !!!
UUUU is a new outfit featuring Edvard Graham Lewis, Thighpaulsandra, Matthew Simms and Valentina Magaletti.
Individually these humans have implanted feathers in caps such as Coil, Dome, Wire, Tomaga, etc. Collectively they form UUUU, a powerhouse construction of fierce and free sonic exploration, as liberating as it is frightening, resulting in, the richly rewarding. The artists united present a project of exquisite curiosity and confident chaos where the individual thumbprints mesh into a gloriously muscular frenetic free sonic soup. It’s Going All Over The Floor presents itself as a terse meeting between dance, ambient, abstraction and improvisation. The Latent Black Path Of Summons Served proceeds in a tense energy field where random elements bounce around until locking into a fourth world pattern designed to fall into a dense mass of ecstatic noise. Boots with Wings is classic Lewis – a pop tune from the other side of the mind.
UUUU is a schizophrenic seething/soothing masterpiece of a past/present hybrid equally at home in the club, the home and the mind.
https://uuuuemego.bandcamp.com/

TRANSITIONAL
(uk – members of NOVATRON, RAMLEH, HEAD OF DAVID, JESU, GREYMACHINE , GOD, TERMINAL CHEESCAKE)
!!! FIRST AND ONLY GERMANY SHOW !!!
Transitional is a project from United Kingdom of musician producer Kevin Laska (Novatron) and long time Justin Broadrick and Kevin Martin collaborator Dave Cochrane who also appears on Greymachine.
This is a band which can deliver both sonic tranquility and extremely heavy slabs of dense music and just about everything in between; Heavy electronic machinery, juggernaut bass lines and hypnotic guitars go from passive relaxation to an unstoppable machine within a single surge.
Kevin Laska’s woven creations of bleak electronic / organic mesmerizing mayhem and bliss has found a new level. Now joined by legendary bassist Dave Cochrane who played with the likes of Kevin Martin in God, Ice and The Bug and Justin Broadrick in Jesu and Head of David.
Born in September 2006 Laska’s found himself in another quality up with Cochrane, following his last collaboration with a.o. Russel Smith and Anthony Difranco (Ramleh, ex Skullflower) as Novatron. Transitional; a solid, textured and dynamic sonic journey through a world that is both self deprecating and enlightening, but either way leaves you wanting more.
In 2009 they added Phil Petrocelli on Transitional’ drums and published their second full length studio album Stomach of the Sun.
From devouring linear drones, lush melancholy to pure unadulterated rage experienced through a back drop of churning rhythms, using Cohesive experimental recording techniques combined with discordant world eating riffs enveloped in a signature approach to atmosphere and interspersing melody.
This performance will mainly consist of material from the bands first two albums “Nothing Real, Nothing Absent” & the unsung “Stomach of the Sun”. A rare opportunity to see a performance from stalwarts of the underground UK Industrial scene.

BILLY BAO
(sp – members of LA SECTA, YOGUR, ATOM-RHUMBA, GUTARIKO BAT)
!!! FIRST GERMANY SHOW !!!
“When I came from Lagos (Nigeria) to San Francisco (Bilbao)
life was tough here or there. I did not mind, I had a purpose in my life: to fight the system that screws everyday of our life. Back in my hometown, I was an unknown songwriter but, as soon as I arrived to the streets of Bilbao, I discovered Punk Rock. It had energy and attitude and was exactly what I needed.
Next thing was to get a band. I found out the most primitive drummer in Bilbao, Alberto Lopez (ex-La Secta, ex-Yogur, ex-Atom-Rhumba), and the noisiest guitarrists around, Mattin & Xabier Erkizia (ex- Gutariko Bat). The band was formed under my name, it could not have been any other way.
These songs go beyond what rock and roll is and what it could be, in fact they are the degenereation of Rock&Roll against the regeneration of Bilbao.” – Billy Bao, Bilbao Dec 2004
http://www.mattin.org/2_Billy_Bao.html

CARLTON MELTON
(usa – members of ZEN GUERILLA)
Mendocino County in Northern California is known for its spectacular coastline views, immense redwood trees in ancient forests and abundant nature that remains largely undisturbed by man. It is perhaps the most logical home base for a band like Carlton Melton, who compose and record their music in a geodesic dome (a.k.a. The Dome). It is the perfect setting for a band creating meditative soundtracks freed from the constraints of traditional song composition.
While Carlton Melton’s sound is heavily inspired by psychedelic music, it is equal parts, blues, rock, improvisation and drone. Whether the band is hanging on a well-defined riff reminiscent of Led Zeppelin or Joe Walsh or largely abandoning conventional music structure à la Spacemen 3 and Bardo Pond, Carlton Melton uses layers, textures and repetition to create music that makes full use of the spaces in between notes and chord changes … sonic explorations if you will.
The music that Carlton Melton makes is bold and does not hesitate to “go there” just to see what the heck might be still left out there in the world of unexplored improvisational and psychedelic music. And there is a lot of ground left to explore and cover. Whether it’s in The Dome or in the live setting, Carlton Melton give themselves full permission to realize and create spontaneous sounds and create genuine musical gestures that resonate beautifully with audiences throughout the world. How many bands can claim that?
http://www.carltonmeltonmusic.com/

NERVØS!
(nor)
!!! FIRST AND ONLY GERMANY SHOW !!!
NERVØS! founded in Stjørdal, North Trøndelag, Norway ca 2000/2001 – performing «lydrock» as they call it (or «lautrock» if you wanna be all international about it).
Aiming for a trance state by repetition, blind/stupid rage, and a relation to sound as an overwhelming physical presence.
Each track they relentlessly beat down maximum 1-2 insanely heavy riffs, with filthy as hell distortion, pissed beyond belief vocals and caveman beats from the land before time. Matched with their huge wall of sound, harsh background noise and shifting guitars and drums they will make you crawl on all fours until you forget your mother tongue.
https://nerv0s.bandcamp.com/

JAMES WELBURN
(nor)
James Welburn’s debut album ‘Hold’, published by Miasmah, was described as “Like watching a massive twisting fire slowly fading into the open skies, accompanied by a drum section so repetitive yet mind bending that you’re unsure if it’s ever going to stop”
Hailing from the UK, but located in both Berlin (DE) and Lillehammer (NO), James has been on a path to catch the perfect drone through the last years, playing an abundance of underground drone and noise sets in Berlin and Norway.
His biography already boasts notable collaborations, such as the one with the legendary drummer Tony Buck of The Necks or those with Tomas Järmyr (of Zu & Motorpsycho), Aidan Baker (of Nadja), Svarte Greiner (aka Erik K Skodvin), Andrea Belfi and the pioneering 60’s New York drone composer Phill Niblock.
Today Welburn performs a live set on the boundary between noise rock and electronica, modifying dirty electric bass sounds with abstract software effects into dark engulfing soundscapes and searing bass drones that breathe with a mysterious forceful energy. A relentless rhythm section drives the music forward, forming epic compositions of sound and noise.
“… Full of sounds and structures to get lost in, to bathe in the layers and wade through the textures that Welburn constructs with consummate skill…marks him out as a solo artist and collaborationist to watch” – The Quietus
https://soundcloud.com/james-welburn

HUMAN INFERNO
(nor – members of NO BALLS, ANAL BABES, ASTROBURGER, ex-TURBONEGRO)
!!! FIRST GERMANY SHOW !!!
Human Inferno is an electronic project from Oslo, Norway. They`ve been around, in different mutations, since 2003.
Before then, everyone in the band played noisepunk. This past is also present today.
There have been several vinyl releases since 2003. The latest being “Medication” on Entr`acte from Antwerpen:
http://entracte.co.uk/projects/human-inferno-e185
The future looks bleak, there is absolutely no info available as to what the gig at NT might sound like.
https://soundcloud.com/entracte/e185

FANGE
(fra – members of HUATA, BRAIN PYRAMID)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
Formed in late 2013 by Baptiste from Brain Pyramid and Benjamin from Huata, FANGE (meaning “mire” in french) is a simple project. Making harsh riffs and hard beats, playing them loud, with a huge amount of distorted sounds and feedbacks.
All you’ll find here is a huge amount of fuzz and distortion, out of hand feedbacks, low tuning and big amps, heavy beats and fat kicks, distorded vocals, wall of noises. Sinking into a dirty and filthy noise-sludge to exorcize the human grime and primal idioms conveyed by all the summer and warm stuff, we are in deep mud.
https://fange.bandcamp.com/

MNHM
(nl)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
MNHM give birth to ‘melodic noise’ from a higher and heavier dimension combining elements from post/math-rock and doom. After releasing their well-received debut album Super-Empowered and touring all over Europe, the band teamed up with producer Rocky O’Reilly (And So I Watch You From Afar) to work on their second album ‘Of Empires Past’ which was released on May 5 2017 on Consouling Sounds
https://mnhm.bandcamp.com/

PILORI
(fra)
!!! FIRST BERLIN SHOW !!!
Formed in Normandy (France) by active members of the local scene, Pilori is crust hardcore band with black metal, powerviolence and grindcore influences. After sharing the stage with bands like Nostromo, Oathbreaker, Regarde Les Hommes Tomber, Cowards, Comity or Harm Done, and releasing their first 4 tracks tape, Pilori just released a split vinyl with an american post-black metal band, Dakhma. Their sound is noisy, dark, oppressive, incisive and filthy, both fast and massive.
https://pilori.bandcamp.com/

ORTURE
(ger)
!!! TAPE RELEASE SHOW !!!
ORTURE is a new band, that crawled up to earth’s crust from different realms of the underground to deliver satanic dadaism. A raw black metal assault with shredding guitars, blasting drums, unholy roar, massive contrabass drones and gut grinding harsh noise layers. Convulsions of the black emperor’s hammer, cold sardonic industrial tremor and the nuclear dragon’s breath will unleash the beast in each and everyone of you.
They will present their first release at Noise Testament!

WRNGDNG
(ger)
VVRNGDNG stands for wrong doing, based in the wrong part of Berlin.
Snitching musick into pieces, with sharp as a shark wrongness.
Wrong party in your scum yard with trash bags full of surprises
like peaky loudness and raspy screaming, drumbeats like origami
and bass bubbles for an unknown future.
http://wrngdng.tumblr.com/

TATSUMI RYUSUI
(jap)
is a Berlin based musician born in Ehime, Japan. He taught himself to play guitar at the age of 10, and since this point has expanded into the world of circuit bending, the collection of field recordings and building his own instruments. He is active within the experimental music scene in Berlin, where he has lived and worked since 2009.
He predominantly performs with the electric guitar, which he processes along with several self built instruments through a system of pedals and effects to generate delicate, yet powerful and astonishing textures that connect drone with the cathartic side of noise. His sound embodies the sonic transition of everyday sounds into ethereal soundscapes and ambient textural improvisation.
https://tatsumiryusui.bandcamp.com/

VORDEMFALL
(ger)
There are limbs and a tongue and it’s all pretty emotionnally unstable. Vordemfall is a constant dry/wet game playing around with elements of progressive, noise and krautrock, into a haunted and moody blend. Their tendencies are based on a deeply rooted paradox. Her riffs and vocals are in turns abrasive and lustful – His hits, tribal or hyperactive.
