RAMMEL CLUB #5
HARD ROCK CAFE (aka LAMBORGHINI CRYSTAL aka JAMES FERRARO / SKATERS)
MONOPOLY CHILD STAR SEARCHERS (aka CHARLES BERLITZ aka SPENCER CLARK / SKATERS)
The legendary SKATERS, the duo of James Ferraro & Spencer Clark return to these shores with their other-worldly disorientation strategies.
But- they’ve turned this into a bumper feast spectacle, a triple-headed hydra of otherness: HARD ROCK CAFE is JAMES FERRARO and this man and his music are sexier than Lionel Richie and his music.
You’ll also get a set of P.A.R.A. (Pre Atlantean Ritual Artefacts), which is the one-woman work of LABANNA BLY (in cahoots with voice/casio/synth) & has just been documented on her lovely ‘Mermalien’ LP on the Olde English Spelling Bee label.
And there’s the icing on the cake that is MONOPOLY CHILD STAR SEARCHERS, the solo action of Spencer Clark &, according to Volcanic Tongue, sounding like “helium-inflected gamelan sonorities create dancing chains of thudding African percussion somewhere between Whitehouse’s Racket, the endless rhythmic torrents of Frank Lowe’s Black Beings & Terry Riley’s all-night tape modulations”.
And that was it... until things even got better with the addition of EXTENDED NETWORK to the line-up. Hail http://www.myspace.com/extnddntwrk
