Bloedmann-Live

$10.00

In the words of Matt Bowler (lead guitar): "Bloedmann began life in a blaze of noise control complaints. The original drummer, a Bavarian giant named the band as he saw it: idiot, fool. Brent Wastney (rhythm guitar), Terry Wells (bass), Wade Byers (Drums), Sean Hendry (keyboards), Richard Lambert (lead vocals) and Matt Bowler (lead guitar and vocals) set about making their own fun, their own foolish noisy homage to their wide array of influences: Goth, grunge, punk, prog rock, new wave, early Brit pop and New York noise merchants. Practises were fluid affairs, usually with plenty of fluid refreshment, that could involve plugging an old television through an array of effects units and watching Doctor Who to jamming with all comers, often involving extended versions, rarely involving linear structures. They took the art of not taking themselves seriously very seriously, and along the way reached moments of the transcendent wisdom of all fools."

I first laid eyes on Bloedmann when they turned up on my front doorstep, en masse, and sought an audience. I was immediately intrigued by the diverse range of characters on display and their collective unbridled enthusiasm for what they were doing. I readily agreed to record them which afforded me a great opportunity to hone my nascent skills as a recording engineer.

I was using a Fostex desk and Fostex 8 Track tape recorder at that point. The sound quality is somewhat ragged so I haven't put up a High-Res version
