Some new reviews

New reviews in French & English of BBM and solo CDrs from Monsieur Delire over in Canada:

BIRCHALL/BRICE/MARKS TRIO / Spitting Feathers (Black & White Cat Press)

Une nouvelle micro étiquette qui publie des CDr. Les deux premières publications mettent en vedette le guitariste David Birchall. D’abord à la guitare électrique, en trio avec Olie Brice (contrebasse) et Phillip Marks (percussions). Improvisation libre européenne – techniques déconstruites, jeu équilibrant instant présent et écoute des autres. Le produit physique est peu soigné, mais ils ont du talent.
A new micro-label releasing CDrs. First two out feature guitarist David Birchall. First on electric guitar, in a trio with Olie Brice (doublebass) and Phillip Marks (percussion). European free improvisation– deconstructed techniques, playing that balances in-the-moment-thinking with attentive listening. The physical product is crude, but they are talented chaps.
DAVID BIRCHALL / Acoustic Textures (Black & White Cat Press)
Et le voici cette fois à la guitare acoustique, dans un set solo de guitare acoustique préparée. Sept pièces, 33 minutes. Il y a de très belles choses ici, des sonorités nouvelles, bien maîtrisées, qui donnent le goût de le voir en action, de savoir comment il s’y prend. Plus remarquable que le disque en trio.
And here he is at the acoustic guitar, in a solo prepared guitar set. Seven tracks, 33 minutes. Some beautiful stuff going on here, novel sonorities, well mastered. This record’s best feature is the fact it makes you want to see him play live, to see how he does it. More unique than the trio record
