    All Tomorrow's Parties has been promoting festivals and concerts throughout the world for the last ten years. It was founded in the wake of Belle and Sebastian’s Bowlie Weekender, with Mogwai curating in the unusual setting of Pontins Holiday Camp, Camber Sands. Since then the festival has appeared every year and has expanded across the globe continuing to set itself apart from large scale corporate festivals by staying intimate and fan-friendly. The line-ups are chosen by significant bands or artists which results in eclectic events that combine performances by legendary and influential acts with appearances by the latest crop of experimental artists from any (and every) musical genre.

    The festival has become more successful with every passing year, and ATP events have taken place in the UK, USA, Europe and Australia, with past curators including Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Mike Patton, My Bloody Valentine, Portishead, Sonic Youth, Slint, Tortoise and Simpsons' creator Matt Groening. In 2007 and again in 2009 ATP even allowed festival-goers to pick half the line-up by organising a voting process for all ticketholders.

    For ten years ATP has set itself apart from other festivals by embracing seemingly disparate artistic genres, with events featuring art exhibitions, cinema programmes, spoken word performances and stand up comedy. It's been called 'Unforgettable' by Spin and 'the most enjoyable festival experience of our reporter's life' by Pitchfork. It has spawned an acclaimed concert series (Don't Look Back), a record label (ATP Recordings), and the release of a feature length documentary about the festivals from Warp X, titled All Tomorrow’s Parties out 21 Sept 2009. The film is a semi-found multi media bricolage shot by over two hundred filmmakers, fans and musicians over the festival’s recent history, with key contributions from co-director Jonathan Caouette (Tarnation) and cinematographer Vincent Moon (The Take Away Shows, Arcade Fire). For more information and the trailer visit http://www.ourtrueintent.com Look out for the soundtrack to the film, out on ATP Recordings, Autumn 2009.

  • The Drones’ Gareth Liddiard’s Favourite Albums of All Time.

    9 nov 2008, 03:46 av BlackCoffeeDuck

    This was published in The Aussie Rolling Stone magazine a few years ago so I might be breaking all sorts of copyright laws but who cares really? I’ll turn it to a big list and quote one or two lines about each album. I hope all you The Drones fans on last.fm like this?

    #1. SuicideSuicide (1977)
    “It’s got everything I like but doesn’t have guitars, it’s got a lot of soul. It’s poetic… I just love it – It would be my all-time favourite.”

    #2. Townes Van ZandtLive at the Old Quarter (1976)
    “It’s him playing a solo show in the 70’s… It some of the heaviest song writing, but it’s just so madly intense. Him and Dylan are the two guys if you want words and music.”

    #3. XAspirations (1979)
    “It’s the sound of a bunch of junkies with a sense of humour, done with a full on Australian accent… The way it was put together it was totally slap-dash”

    #4. Kim Salmon & The SurrealistsHit Me With the Surreal Feel (1988)
    “It’s recorded with one mike and it sounds like it’s 1,000 miles away… It’s like a ghost or memory of an album.”

    #5. Bob DylanHighway 61 Revisited (1968)
    “I like that this is hilarious. He’s such a funny dude, its ridiculous”

    #6. Black FlagLive '84 (1985)
    “You know the V8 Interceptor that Mad Max drives? If that car had a band, it would sound like this… It’s just so extreme.”

    #7. Bad BrainsRock for Light (1983)
    “I listen to this every day… I’ve seen them play live and they best live bands even up against Dirty Three and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. They would shit on Slayer live.”

    #8. Einstürzende NeubautenKollaps (1981)
    Kollaps was made in a water tower that looks like an alien from War of the World… As soulful as Otis Redding record but it does sound like a building collapsing

    #9. Van MorrisonVeedon Fleece (1974)
    Veedon Fleece is a beautiful record… My favourite love song is on it Come Here My Love

    #10. Alan VegaJukebox Babe (1980)
    Alan Vega is the singer from Suicide and this is first solo record… People either get it straight away or they don’t but they’ll get eventually.”

    So that is it. What do you think?
  • THE DRONES LIVE!!! (again & it just gets better)

    27 apr 2009, 01:35 av BlackCoffeeDuck

    I saw theThe Drones again last night (Sun 26 Apr – The Drones) and it just gets better and better. The Drones are moving up in the world each time the venue get bigger and bigger, double the size. First time was at Mojo's Bar a couple or so years ago then at The Bakery last year. And now at Fly-by Night club.

    The support band was going to be Qui but the Bloody Mother Fucking Assholes didn't show up, canceled last week. I love David Yow but a no show was so disappointing. The Jesus Lizard were one one the greatest bands I've ever seen live but I can't add Qui today. The Drones are taking their place now too. I would say they're only behind say Dirty Three, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Bob Dylan as one of the greatest live acts in my book. You should see them if they come to your town.

    So who was the support band? Local Perth band MF And His Truckload Of Hope which I've never seen before. They hadn't played live in a long time and the drummer had never played with them. So it was cool check them out. They're not really on here on last.fm so here is their myspace page here: http://www.myspace.com/mfandhistruckloadofhope .Their first song kind-off sounded (but with different lyrics) like Lubricated Goat's In the Raw but not on national TV and not naked too. If anyone doesn't know what I'm talking about have a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_the_Raw_(documentary)
    and : http://www.cousincreep.com/intheraw/home.htm

    Anyway I'm getting side tracked back to The Drones. It was a bit of family reunion last night with Gareth Liddiard Grandmother turning up just before they were going on stage and started hugging and kissing him backstage also I stood next to his Dad all night. He was a very proud parent smiling and even laughing at his jokes all night.

    The last time I saw them they played most of Havilah and the time before played most of Gala Mill being the new albums at the time but tonight it was a bit of everything which was cool. They did focus on the new album off course. The set list was something like this:
    Nail It Down
    Oh My
    The Minotaur
    Six Ways To Sunday
    Locust
    Your Acting's Like The End Of The World
    Luck In Odd Numbers
    Shark Fin Blues
    She Had an Abortion That She Made Me Pay For
    I Don't Ever Want To Change
    Encore
    Sixteen Straws
    The Miller's Daughter

    Seeing them live a few times now their songs turn into epic masterpieces. If you know the songs but haven't seen them live yet your are really missing out. Go and see them as soon as possible and quick smart about it too. What are you still sitting there reading this shit for, go and see THE DRONE LIVE!!!

    ----

    DEVO are the unmistakable American rock group formed in Akron, Ohio in 1972 by Kent State art students Jerry Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh. Their innovative and ground-breaking 1978 debut album, Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo, produced by Brian Eno, was originally released to worldwide acclaim in 1978. They were also one of the first American rock acts to sign to the UK-based record label Stiff Records.

    Devo took its name from their concept of "de-evolution" — the idea that instead of evolving, mankind has actually regressed, as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality of American society.

    Their music echoed this view of society as rigid, repressive, and mechanical, with appropriate touches — jerky, robotic rhythms; an obsession with technology and electronics (the group was among the first non-prog rock bands to make the synthesizer a core element); often atonal melodies and chord progressions — all of which were filtered through the perspectives of social misfits.

    Devo evolved into a cult sensation, helped in part by their concurrent emphasis on highly stylised visuals, and achieved mainstream chart success with the smash single Whip It (the single made it to #14 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart), whose memorable video was made a staple by the fledgling MTV network in the early 1980s.

    Over the years the band have released an collection of unforgettable songs including Jocko Homo, Mongoloid, Come Back Jonee, Secret Agent Man, Freedom of Choice, Through Being Cool, That’s Good, Girl U Want, Beautiful World, Peek-A-Boo and a deconstructed version of the Rolling Stones’ Satisfaction.

    Their style has been variously classified as punk, art rock and post-punk, but they are most often remembered for their late 1970s and early 1980s new wave music which, along with other name bands, ushered in the synth pop sound of the 1980s.

    Devo's music and stage show mingle science fiction themes, surrealist humor, and mordantly satirical social commentary via sometimes-discordant pop songs that often feature unusual synthetic instrumentation and time signatures. After a critically acclaimed 35-year long run, a staggering discography and a solid, inimitable personality, Devo continue to push the envelope, and remain both an innovator and driving force on the ever-changing technological world of music.
