Adieu Sunny...

Re 8 December: I came to Albert Ayler’s indefatigable, sob-soaked, funereal roar a bit late - 1974. I was swept away, and devoured everything I could find on the periphery of ancestral Shitville.

Ghosts. Music was dead and done.

The contrapuntal immensity and unholy restraint exhibited by Sunny Murray was a massive influence on my late teen thinking. Not on my rough and tattered tape edits, mind - I was too angry to concern myself with trivialities of technique. No, Murray was a fucking Oklahoman GIANT, and his was a blueprint for total refusal. That was immediately clear.

As this supergod takes a well-deserved bow, I offer thanks to James Marcellus Arthur Murray.

Well lived, sir.

The new Merkwürdig Riechnerv 10” lathe-cuts just arrived from Rat Bastard. The EP, Spit It Out Versions, will be on sale at our show at Sturmglocke (in Hannover) this Saturday, December 16th. It’s a limited edition of 15, so it’s probably best if interested parties don’t snooze on these yawlps of derangement. Digital doorstops will be available at KSV Bandcamp from Saturday!
