Hey folks! It's a big day here in Ipecac land. A great day for a doubleheader. Twice the pleasure!
First up we introduce you to Australian musical maestro Julian Curwin and his TANGO SALOON. This is a fun, adventurous record that puts quite a twist on tango. Julian mixes in elements of jazz/morricone/classical/improv and electronic music to create something that is completely unique and deserves a genre of it's own. Hey and guess what? A guy named Danny Heifetz, late of Mr Bungle is part of the posse of eclectic musicians responsible for this effort. Good on ya Julian!!!!!
The perfect record to release at the same time is our genre defying favorite , Mugison! Our Icelandic compadre follows up his critically acclaimed MUGIMAMA CD ( CNN and Paste both named it one of 2005s best) with the stunning LITTLE TRIP. Part score, part soundtrack LITTLE TRIP accompanies heralded Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur's film of the same name starring Forest Whitaker and Julia Stiles. Recorded at Sigur Ros' Reykjavik recording studio Sundlaughin (swimming pool), Little Trip features 17-songs/pieces including rockers like Pétur Grétarsson, a swooning cover of Tom Waits classic song Little Trip To Heaven and a live version of Mugimama's Murr Murr. A warm and twangy soundtrack and another beautiful gem from our Mugi. If you have not discovered him yet, now is the time.
Let's play 2!!
Long time Melvins collaborator and friend of Ipecac, David Scott Stone is coming up to Leeds the day after the Melvins-Fantomas Big Band Show in London, to do a special one of solo show. There will be a Leeds only CDR. Expect contact mic cacophony / horror.

Sorry to say, but due to scheduling conflicts the Big Band show that we announced for the Irving Plaza on May 15th is NOT happening. However, the Gen Patton show on the 14th is still on and tickets will be available soon!
This had nothing to do with Carl Cox.

The bearer of bad news here! Sorry to say that after the show on Friday March 10th Orthrelm is being forced to cancel the rest of their tour dates. One of the guys has a lingering health issue that needs to be addressed. Very sorry to those of you that were hoping to get your noise on with the boys. I highly recommend loading up on redbull putting their latest CD "OV" on grabbing a tennis racket, disrobing, and get a neighborhood air band contest going. The next best thing to having the band there live.
Kielty, back in the swing of things here!
So we admit, we dig lots of things about Iceland. Who doesn't? You already know and love Sigur Ros, Bjork and our very own Mugison. Now we present to you GHOSTIGITAL with their latest release "In Cod We Trust". But of course there is a story behind the band. GHOSTIGITAL is the brainchild of the unpredictable Einar Örn of Sugarcubes fame. This release is packed with heavy hitting, like minded, oddballs like Curver, Mugison, Sensational, Dälek, Marke E Smith and more! The music? Well it is hard to describe but easy to enjoy. What would you expect from Einar? Welcome some sun light into your life by enjoying "In Cod We Trust"!

Well blow me down! This one caught us off guard. The FantômasMelvins Big Band has decided to do a little mini tour in part of Europe in April! No new record, no real reason, just doing it because some promoters offered em a bunch of cash to dust it off. Look for the dates in the calendar section. This is not part of any bigger tour. No plans to tour other parts of the world and not sure if any dates will be added to this European run. It is very rare when the Big Band is able to get all the musicians available at the same time. And to answer your question, the reasons these cities were chosen is because this is where the offers came from. Don't blame us if they are not going to your city or country. These musicians do this for a living so they go where they are offered good money. Private jets and full body massages are expensive, you know?
