HOTOTOGISU & BURNING STAR CORE - Volume 1
Live in-person collaborations between Hototogisu and the BxC.\r\nHototogisu, as you know, are the time-defying duo of Matthew Bower\r\n(Skullflower, Ramleh, Sunroof!, Total, etc.) and Marcia Bassett\r\n(Double Leopards, GHQ, Zaimph, etc.). For these sessions, Burning\r\nStar Core was C. Spencer Yeh, Robert Beatty, and Trevor Tremaine (the\r\nlatter two being of Hair Police, Eyes and Arms of Smoke, Sick Hour,\r\netc.). Note that the music on this disc is different material from\r\nthe Heavy Blossom companion volume "HG/BxC II" released earlier this\r\nyear.\r\nFive tracks, totalling approximately fifty minutes. Packed into the\r\nsmall Horrible Room (RIP) inside the Cedar House (RIP) down in\r\nLexington KY (still alive), individuals huddled in every corner,\r\npainting the room in colored cables, glossy wood and metal boxes.\r\nDeafness and disorientation was administered through the afternoon on\r\ninto the night. Summoning over two hours of recorded tape, it was\r\ndecided to cut the baby in half for adoption between two imprints.\r\nHeavy Blossom ferried away the long thick sides of torso, and\r\nDronedisco seized the hooves, antlers, and jaw. The disc starts off\r\nwith an appropriate invocation; from there punches blindly through one\r\nstone cloud after another, coughs and gasps from exhaustion, stumbles\r\nand lies motionless. The ritual concludes with a moment of naked\r\nacoustic/instinctual spasm, then a cut-off.\r\nOriginally released in a very small quantity on CD-R as merchandise\r\nduring various US and UK spring tours, the Dronedisco half of these\r\nsessions has been edited and resequenced for this release in the\r\nautumn. The pro-pressed disc comes in a black polycase with black and\r\nwhite inserts and a special randomly-selected 1" button (there are\r\nfive button variations in all)." - Dronedisco.
