Artist: HALANA
Title: #4
Format: Mag/CD
Label: Halana
Country: USA
Price: $8.00
"Everything about this arty American New Music zine squeals quality, from its ridged cardboard, metallic-inked cover and enduring paper-stock, to the hefty price tag. But your bucks include a CD with tracks by Rafael Toral, Sun City Girls founder Richard Bishop, id battery, Motoharu Yoshizawa, plus a piece by David Tudor and more�??all of which feature in the mag. Opening with a brilliant, often scary travelogue by Richard Bishop (from spontaneous busking sessions in Morocco to self-induced vomiting in Calcutta), we get a long and fairly boring Joe Maneri Q&A; a piece on Portuguese guitarist Rafael Toral (just a monologue distilled from a long e-mail correspondence); memoirs of Yoshizawa and Tudor from various acquaintances, preciously poetic notes on location recording from id batterys Loren Chasse; and endless split columns of CD reviews. But the real gem here is the feature on little known American renaissance man (and pretender to Harry Smiths crown in the realm of eccentric sonic research) Ralph Haxton, who has had at least three groups including Californias rhBand, named after him."�??
