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).
