Vervloesem, Pierre - Not Even Close

SKU Stilll OPV001
A new release by Pierre is always a cause for joy in Wayside land, as he was the brain behind the much-missed X-Legged Sally and the still currently active Flat Earth Society. This is more of a sketchbook kinda release, as there aren't other musicians here, so, this isn't the idea place to start if you don't know his work (pick up F.E.S.), but if you are a fan, there's plenty of raw nuggets to chew on!

"This is the first release in a new "P.V. Presents" series, and the Brussels-based producer/avant-garde guitarist/composer Pierre Vervloesem's first solo album since 2005 and where he does absolutely everything except for some vocals by his wife. He has previously recorded 7 CDs with X-Legged Sally and two CDs with A Group. He has performed live musical accompaniment for pieces by choreographer Wim Vandekeybus, released six CDs either alone or sometimes with musicians as various as Guy Segers (Univers Zero) or Charles Hayward (This Heat), and has mixed and/or produced too many bands to be cited here (around 100), including dEUS and Flat Earth Society. He has played with David Byrne, Bill Laswell and Marc Ribot and many others, and also has a release on the Off label with Teun Verbruggen as the duo P.V.T.V.. Not Even Close is a cacophony of drum beats, noodly keyboards and other electronics, percussive vocals and glitch-y videogame/carnivalesque squawls that will completely befuddle the brain. "P.V. Presents" is an exclusive series directed by Pierre Vervloesem, with future releases including The Kings Of Belgium, and The Claude Zac Ensemble."
