FUCHS & BECKETT : #fadbdd CASSETTE

new tape out now on the affiliated Litho label, with perforated 2nd inner flap for use as filter tips…for enhanced enjoyment of #fadbdd.

In 2015 Fuchs inherited a collection of reel to reel tapes and recorders, which had been stored by his friend and neighbour, Martin Ermisch, who had recently deceased at 91 years of age.

The recoders and tapes had belonged to Martin`s son, Bernd Jürgen, who had been a musician and studio owner in Kassel and had passed away in the 90`s.

The tapes contain days worth of unique material recorded in Jürgen`s studio, but also recordings of family events, fieldrecordings as well as radio broadcasts.

All source material from the #fadbdd series was destructively edited from the Ermisch Archive, manually looped and transfered to computer where the loops were then arranged and processed, resulting in warped and wonky, exotica leaning, hip-hop inspired ambience.

FUCHS & BECKETT : ANGELGRINDER

A few years ago I (Michael Beckett, aka kptmichigan) was attempting to strip the paint off of a cheap, cherry red Epiphone SG and annoyed by the slow progress, I decided to see if an angle grinder would speed things up. It did. So much so in fact, that I very quickly had a big dent in the neck of the SG.
This gave birth to the idea that it may be fun to play / destroy a guitar using an angle grinder, so I asked Kassel based film maker Jan Fuchs if he would be up for collaborating. We wanted to keep things as cheap as possible (ie. well under €50) so I built a bariton lap steel guitar out of a woodworm ridden plank and bits and bobs found in the cellar.
The guitar was open tuned and the sound, which afterwards was filtered and processed slightly to bring out the harmonic content, recorded via the pick up only.
The resulting 180 minute film is made up of multiple 12 minute loops which unnoticingly pulsate backwards and forwards, blurring beggining and end and soundtracked by the subdued drone of the angle grinder grinding away at the wood and metal of the lap steel in real time.

kptmichigan`s Black Wood out now !!!

Quite some time in the making (8 years. On and Off) and probably / maybe / not the most cohesive kptmichigan (aka Michael Beckett from Super Reverb, Schneider TM, the Beautiful New Born Children, ex-Tuesday Weld etc.) album yet.

7 songs “proper” (ie. with vocals) on the first side, which have been described as being something like a “classic” English pop songwriting (Kinks) and Krautrock interface.

5 instrumentals (ie. no vocals) on the second. No sequencing, lots of guitars which don`t sound like guitars, blurry, sprawling, dubby, hazy, from the hip.

Songs of loss (lots), love (quite a bit) and hope (a tiny bit).
