Info

In uscita il 18 maggio 2018 via Rocket, Bonnacons of Doom è l’esordio omonimo del mascherato collettivo ritualistico free of genre di musicisti con base a Liverpool ma provenienti dalle campagne del Lancashire come dello Yorkshire. Composto da brani registrati perlopiù in un’unica take, il disco è stato inciso ai Suburban Home studios dal frontman degli Hookworms MJ e si muove tra rumorose cavalcate psych-rock e post-hardcore, drone music, elettronica di rinforzo e voci sciamaniche (femminili) a contorno, il tutto con rimandi dichiarati alla tradizione comunitaria e freak degli Amon Düül II come dell’Acid House nella sua incarnazione più primitiva e mutoide. Il gruppo ha descritto la propria mission in quest’album come: Trans-Pennine hypnotic music. Di seguito uno stralcio – in lingua originale – di intervista a Rob, portavoce e co-fondatore della formazione.

«The ritualistic is central to what we do. For us, performance exists as this space which is other to everyday life and allows us to access something primal. I was brought up in a religious sect and in my childhood the house was often full of people singing and speaking in tongues. Reflecting on it now, I think those people were reaching to get out of themselves, to get beyond language. Music is used as a force of control and cohesion in religion- it takes people out of themselves by producing different states of consciousness. The album is full of found sound from different religious traditions buried in the mix. By using that cut-up approach we want to be the opposite of controlling- we want people to project what’s important to them on the experience, to create their own ritualistic meanings».

Ad anticiparlo, i brani Solus e Argenta.
