Dempsey

Artist: CARL, RUDIGER INC.
Title: King Alcohol
Format: Double CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
"A reissue of King Alcohol, recorded for the German FMP label in 1972. King Alcohol is one of the landmark recordings of free jazz in Europe, a mind-blowing studio session featuring Rüdiger Carl on tenor saxophone, Günter Christmann on trombone, and the astonishing Detlef Schönenberg on drums. Volatile and precise, anticipating much of the future sound of free music in Europe but also paying homage to American antecedents like Roswell Rudd and Archie Shepp, King Alcohol is truly a lost jewel. First ever release on CD. Features a disc of newly discovered, previously unreleased bonus tracks. Remastered from the original tapes. Cover art features a reproduction of the insanely rare first-pressing cover with its black-and-white line drawing by Carl himself." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey

Artist: CHADBOURNE, EUGENE
Title: Therell Be No Tears Tonight
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2016 release. "A reissue of Eugene Chadbournes Therell Be No Tears Tonight, originally released by Parachute in 1980. One of the absolute essentials of Eugene Chadbournes oeuvre, what he described as "free improvised country and western bebop", featuring his frantic, skewed interpretations of classic songs such as Merle Haggards "Swingin Doors", Roger Millers "The Last Word In Lonesome Is Me", and Willie Nelsons "Mr. Record Man", Therell Be No Tears Tonight was recorded in Spring of 1980. Its lineup includes Chadbourne on acoustic and electric guitar and voice, Tom Cora on cello, John Zorn on saxophones, clarinet, and birdcalls, David Licht on percussion, with another set of songs featuring Doctor Chad on electric dobro and singing, with Scott Manring on lap steel and lap dobro, Robbie Link on acoustic bass, Dennis Licht on percussion, and David Licht on drum set. For the guitarists solo "Johnny Paycheck" medley alone, this would be worth the price of admission, but the whole show is built on lightning fast juxtaposition and hilarious interjection. Though it was reissued on CD, its been out of print for years. Here it is given the royal treatment, with a facsimile cover, new photos from the sessions, remastered from original tapes, and an additional 26-minute track titled "Richmond Dobro Massacre". In this deluxe reissue, "Tears" remains one of the best free song outings ever made and is an absolute must for every home." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey

Artist: GONDELN, WENDY
Title: Projections
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Projections is the first CD compilation of recent seven-inch and twelve-inch records by the enigmatic Wendy Gondeln, mixing electronic music, sawed violin, and Martian intelligence into a thoroughly spicy and utterly confounding goulash. Featured collaborations include Tim Berrescheim, Norbert Möslang, J.B. Slik, Wolfgang Voigt, Michael Wertmüller, Magazine (Jens-Uwe Beyer, Crato, Barnt). Projections also includes some of the art installation projects for Albert Oehlen works of recent vintage, such as "Alarm", composed by Wertmüller, well-known among other things as the drummer in Peter Brötzmanns Full Blast Trio. Music taken from Seismographic Pillow by Tim Berresheim (J.B. Slik) (2004), Pondering WTF (2011), Freiland -- Freie Sicht (2013), Fracking (MAGAZINE 010EP, 2014), the soundtrack from the Installation Albert Oehlen/Wolfgang Voigt -- Baum 3 at Böhm Chapel (2015), and a split 7" with Norbert Möslang on Meeuw Muzak (2016)." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey.

Artist: MCPHEE, JOE & ANDRE JAUME
Title: Nuclear Family
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2016 release. "Multi-instrumental master Joe McPhee and his longtime colleague, French saxophonist and clarinetist André Jaume, joined forces for this studio recording in 1979 that was prepared but never released. It is primarily structured around pairs of tunes by Charles Mingus, Thelonious Monk, and Duke Ellington (or Billy Strayhorn), adding Ornette Colemans "Lonely Woman" for good measure. The results are stunningly intimate and show the twosomes capacity for creative interplay at a fairly early stage in its unfolding. Minguss "Pithecanthropus Erectus", which was performed by a larger group on Topology (1981), gets pared down to its essential walking-bass-ness, while Monks "Evidence" is taken apart, and solo spots by both men are as riveting as one would expect. Part of Corbett vs. Dempseys ongoing historical effort to unearth and reissue McPhees important discography, this previously unknown recording will delight existing fans and make new ones." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey

Artist: MOORE, THURSTON/FRANK ROSALY
Title: Marshmallow Moon Decorum
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
2016 release. "Guitar hero Thurston Moore and improvising drummer Frank Rosaly met for a first encounter in 2012 at the Neon Marshmallow Festival, at the Burlington in Rosalys hometown of Chicago. The results were monumental. The slow build of Moores gigantosaur sound and Rosalys clamorousness and gradually escalating propulsion made for an idea match over the course of an electrifying 35-minute piece, the thunderous conclusion of which left no ear unburned. Marshmallow Moon Decorum presents the full concert in all its glory, gorgeously rendered in a multi-track recording that captures both the grit and grace of their mutual ascent. The cover sports a painting by Amy Feldman, perfect visual foil for the boys and their noise. Recorded live at the Burlington in Chicago, during the Neon Marshmallow Festival on November 18, 2012. Engineered by Matt Hannigan; Mastered at Experimental Sound Studio, Chicago." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey

Artist: PICNIC
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
2016 release. "The first reissue of Picnic, originally released on Data Records in 1985. A little-known gem of Dutch free music, Picnic is the brainchild of cellist Tristan Honsinger, who composed all but one of its 12 compositions. Brilliant and whimsical, the tracks bring to mind Honsingers work with ICP Orchestra, for whom he has also composed extensively. Here hes working in an incredible ensemble, with trumpeter Toshinori Kondo, saxophonist Sean Bergen, Jean Jacques Avenel on bass, Michael Vatcher on drums and percussion, and Tiziana Simona Vigni on voice. Deceptively vicious little songs with hilarious twists and the kind of intense improvising youd expect from a band that incorporates players of this caliber, its a unique album, originally issued on the tiny Data Records, never before reissued. And its worth having alone for the beautiful recording by Datas Dick Lucas, which captures Vatchers incredible high snare on "Restless", a minute of pure energy better than Red Bull, and Vignis oblique vocals, which were sung mostly in English by the Italian singer, who didnt speak a word of the language. Remastered by Lucas from the original tapes. Features the original cover." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey.

Artist: REICHEL, HANS
Title: Bonobo
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A reissue of the second album in the catalog of German guitarist and instrument inventor Hans Reichel (1949-2011), Bonobo, originally released by FMP in 1976. A program of microtonal string investigations that is still beguiling and fresh four decades later. Like Reichels debut, Wichlinghauser Blues (1973), Bonobo is a super-rare slice of musical otherness. Includes the hilarious cover by Reichel himself. First ever release on CD. Remastered from original tapes; Packaged with gatefold and tip-on sleeve, with a reprinting the original design." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey

Artist: REICHEL, HANS
Title: Wichlinghauser Blues
Format: CD
Label: Corbett Vs. Dempsey
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"A reissue of Wichlinghauser Blues the debut album by legendary German guitar improviser and instrument inventor Hans Reichel (1949-2011), originally released on FMP in 1973. Wichlinghauser Blues is a resonant and hilarious document of the nascent genius recording his peculiar and wondrous music alone in a studio. Acoustic and unfiltered electric guitars turned back into the supremely malleable instruments they were before theyd been firmly encoded as tools for rock or pop or jazz. Reichel uses a homemade 11-string guitar (with three pickups) for all the tunes except the first one. Reichel is like an improvising Harry Partch, investigating the genesis of lute music. First ever release on CD. Remastered from original tapes; Packaged with a gatefold and tip-on sleeve, with a reprinting of the original design." - Corbett Vs. Dempsey
