NO NECK BLUES BAND - Gitanjali + The Nascent Stigma
"Long delayed, this LP is one of two vinyl releases from recording
sessions at the Chummery late in 2006. The Chummery was the Seattle
home to Sun City Girls, Sublime Frequencies, Abduction, and The Sea
Donkeys. In fact it was the last residence of Charles Gocher who
passed away in there only a few months after this session. Along
side this there is the highlight from NNCK's concert in Vancouver,
British Columbia on that same trip.
This record follows the 10" called "Gitanjali". Despite the
similarity in title, the two records contain completely different
material from the same session. It is a record in two parts, much
like their "A Tabu Two" released as two separate LPs on the New World
of Sound label back in 1997.
From Alan Bishop's liner notes: "One night when I slept on the sofa,
serenaded to sleep by the polyrhythmic purring of our guests, I
dreamt that Lyndon Johnson sent this outfit into the jungle all alone
to battle the Viet Cong. A giant cargo plane parachuted them in with
their ceremonial gear and Bob Hope's PA system. After three or four
days of producing slow burning sound signals curling in and around
the foggy Mekong, Charlie fled en masse to Cambodia to do a photo
shoot with Dennis Hopper."
NNCK's activity was the first documented in 1994. Since then they
have gone on to be represented by The Shadow Ring's Dry Leaf Discs,
Ecstatic Yod, SER/SERES, John Fahey's Revenant, Kill Rock Stars
sub-label 5 Rue Christine, Staubgold, Les Disque Victo, Locust Music,
Alga Marghen side label Planam, Kelippah, and their own Sound@One
imprint. They have toured North America and Europe although have
rarely played live in later years. Members of NNCK have been involved
in a wide range of other musical projects including Angelblood,
Sabbath Assembly, D. Charles Speer & The Helix, Enos Slaughter,
Rhyton, Suntanama, Coach Fingers, K-Salvatore, Izititiz, Malkuth,
Test, Key of Shame, Decimus, Raajmahal, and Ki. 180 gram RTI pressing, Stoughton jackets, two inserts, one with liner notes by Alan Bishop. Limited edition of 300 copies." - Ri Be Xibalba.
