Artist: KELLEY, GREG
Title: The Traditions Of The Past Cannot Be Retrieved
Format: CDR
Label: 8MM
Country: Italy
Price: $9.00
"The traditions of the past cannot be retrieved is a collection of five solo works Greg Kelley (known for his work in Nmperign, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat) recorded from 1997 to 2005 with his 4 track recorder. For those familar with his previous releases, here youll find some of those elements that make Greg a personal, surprising voice as a musique concrete composer: drones, loops, sonic detritus and short gaps of silence alternated with magnificent abrasive moments. The first 4 tracks are a real peach in this sense. The last track 4 Piezos is a 31 minute monolith which works as a second chapter for the whole album: a long, huge piece for(percussion/trumpet/electronix?) collapsing in a shocking finale. Totally amazing. CDR released in an edition of 205 copies." - 8MM.

Title: 1 Hour As Something That Didnt Turn Out The Way I Intended It
Format: CDR
Label: Chocolate Monk
Country: UK
Price: $12.00
⿿Another exercise in failure. Spring 2003: With assistance from Vic Rawlings, I fill my room at Club Awesome in Somerville MA w/ electric keyboards, synth, a small organ and set them all for drone. A radio plays static. Record to MD, output MD through my stereo for low feedback. An electric fan is aimed at the microphone for the distorted vintage 78 effect (rpm, not the year). Vic bowed a single cello note at some point and a cymbal was scraped. The intent: record in mono for 2 hours, communicate with the dead. After 1 hour, I couldnt take it any more. My intended "Two hours as..." is now "One hour as..." I fussed over it for a while. Its kind of boring. I like boring, but... Late Winter 2004: I must do something with this recording. I decide to look backwards into the archives... January 8, 2000: I send out a call to arms: Meet me at Twisted Village Records, Cambridge MA at 8pm. Its Scelsis birthday and we will play a memorial drone for him. The call was met by Oliver Alden, Mike Bullock, James Baumgartner, Seth Cluett, James Coleman, David Dougan, David Gross, Tatsuya Nakatani, Howard Stelzer, Bhob Rainey, Vic Rawlings. Some automatic instruments played themselves. Others may have been there, but I dont remember. And you cant really hear them anyway. Back to Late Winter 2004: I record a new track onto my 4 track in my bedroom in Allston MA. Trumpet and radio static. (DJ Screws ghost inhabited my 4 track near the end of this track.) Then I record a burning guitar solo for the end of my new and improved "One hour as..." The mono drone, the Scelsi tribute band, the trumpet/radio track and the HOTT guitar track are all mixed down from 4 track to MD under the influence of Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout. A vocal intro and headphone feedback interruptions are then added. The task is complete. Its a bloodbath. What have I done?⿝

Title: The Peeled Ones I-III
Format: Double CDR
Label: Fargone
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
�??Almost two years ago, improv trumpeter Greg Kelley released a pair of anonymous CD-Rs under the moniker the Peeled Ones. He made a webpage, sent out press releases, and received NO orders for the debut albums from this previously unknown and mysterious group. The discs, which almost nobody heard at the time, were wildly different from Gregs usual work: one disc of melancholic synth meanderings (I) and one disc of shredding guitar overload (II). This year, the Peeled Ones saga came full circle when Greg decided to record a third installment, returning to his synthesizer for a gorgeous and incredibly realized improvisation. This lavish package includes "reissues" of the two original, ultra-obscure Peeled Ones albums on the first disc, and Gregs fantastic new recording on the second disc. Each disc comes in its own cardboard slipcase with individual artwork (featuring creepy photos selected by Greg) and the whole thing fits in an oversized box along with an essay by Mr. Kelley himself and more haunted pictures. Greg Kelley fans, this is not to be missed; this box is a different and unexpected side to one of modern improvs most versatile and consistently rewarding musicians. LIMITED TO 120 COPIES.�?� -Fargone.

Title: I Dont Want To Live Forever
Format: CD
Label: Little Enjoyer
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"As a veteran of the Massachusetts experimental music community and Minister of Fanfares for the Kingdom of Elgaland-Vargaland, Greg Kelley is well known in his capacity as a trumpeter, with consideration to his input into such diverse ensembles as nmperign, The BSC, Heathen Shame, Cold Bleak Heat, and Damon & Naomi. Kelleys interests, however, span all varieties of sound arrangement, and on "I dont want to live forever" he shows his considerable merits as a composer of solo musique concrete. A co-release between Gameboy and the newly formed Little Enjoyer, this is Kelleys third solo release. For this recording he takes as source material recordings from minidisc and microcassette made during a tour with Mike Bullock and edits them into a single 35+ minute composition. The results are unlike anything Kelley has done before: rigorous, methodical tape-collage, in turns pensive and aggressive, brittle and supple. The record becomes a revolving exploration of a set of atmospherics, rigidly set into a rusty frame of tape-hiss, fragments emerging from the dreams of a long convalescence. Kelley openly acknowledges his musical reference points in the liner notes, but those citations serve only to make more unfamiliar what is already strangely shaped. Not one that assimilates easily to categories, its as uneasy as a pederast at a PTA meeting. Crucial stuff." - Little Enjoyer. Mastered by Jason Lescalleet, with liner notes by Oliver Alden and Leif Elggren.
