classic records co-boss, musical weirdo and travelling dj luke solomon has just announced his latest project: mother rose sees the occasional crosstown rebels and fullbarr producer team up with andy neal of howlinʼ wilf, the veejays and sometime polecats guitarist, and together the pair will indulge a passion for everything from soul to funk, jah wobble to talking heads and paul weller to the rolling stones.
releases will be limited affairs coming on vinyl only, and already erudite sonic expert andrew weatherall has gotten behind the label’s second release, playing it on his much loved 6music show last week. says the pr of the first release…
“mother rose #1 takes in three original tracks plus a remix from italian disco legend danielle baldelli. the tracks were composed using traditional live overdubbing techniques and many a non-traditional instrument raided from the creatorʼs childrenʼs toy cupboards. mixed on a neve console before being committed to vinyl directly from quarter inch tape, mother rose 001 is the playful sound of two talented musicians indulging themselves and letting us into the hi-fidelity party.”
i’ve listened and can confirm that is certainly the case.. think strident, indie licked guitars married to dub tempos, trentemoller-esque atmospheres and plenty of organic instrumental funk. tip!
keep in the loop at mothersrose.tv and keep eyes peeled for the first release, which is due out imminently.
