A couple of years ago we interviewed legendary producer Martin Bisi (Cop Shoot Cop, Swans, Helmet) regarding then-upcoming documentary Sound and Chaos: The Story of BC Studio. Martin is playing Deep Thoughts JP tonight (see FB event page) – part of a mini-tour he’s doing in support of BC35: The 35th Anniversary of BC Studio compilation which came out on Italian label Bronson Recordings:
With Members of Sonic Youth, Swans, White Hills, JG Thirlwell, Cop Shoot Cop, Live Skull reunion, Pop 1280, The Dresden Dolls, Alice Donut, Lubricated Goat, Sxip Shirley, Parlor Walls and many more!
BC35 refers to the weekend of performances and resulting album making the 35 year anniversary of BC Studio in Gowanus, Brooklyn.
Musicians were invited to participate by Martin Bisi, and were assembled by Genevieve Fernworthy into improv ensembles – in the instances where no group had already self-organised – with particular attention to production logistics, and respect for sonic-dynamic possibility.
