More Info

Dies drft der erste Teil (man knnte auch sagen: das erste Sammlerstck) der neuen "Guitar Series" auf Table of the Elements sein! COLLECTIONS OF COLONIES OF BEES wurden von JON MUELLER & CHRIS ROSENAU 1998 gegrndet, hier schichten sie 6 Gitarren im minimalen Breitwand-Modus bereinander, das hat was von meditativem GLENN BRANCA...super! Auf klarem Vinyl, einseitig bespielt mit SAVAGE PENCIL - etching auf der Rckseite.

"Their sound is expansive, vast, and billowing; full of ringing guitars, soaring in the best traditions of the Chatham/Branca standoff; meanwhile, beneath the clouds sprawl dewy meadows of gently rolling electronica. Six Guitars is just what its title states, yet so much more. Wildly versatile drummer Jon Mueller follows the rules by hammering on an electric guitar with mallets, enhancing the Steve Reichian vibe (compare this with Mueller's face-melting solo onslaught Metals). The band sparkles accordingly, lifting to a dazzling climax. It's epic minimalism in exquisite registration, and the perfect selection to introduce the Table Of The Elements Guitar Series (fans will be happy to hear that Mueller is on deck with a solo contribution to the series as well). Beyond the music, there's the similarly spectacular packaging. It's a one-sided, 12-inch LP, pressed on clear vinyl; the reverse is laser etched with an original illustration by acclaimed UK artist Savage Pencil, whose credits include album art for The Fall, Big Black, and Sonic Youth. It's a limited-edition pressing, so get it while you can -- disks from the label's original Guitar Series in 1993/1994 are now some of Collectorville's must coveted treasures." [label info]
