MV/EE/FLOWER & fellow golden roadies offer you HOME COMFORT. 1, home comfort (07:02) miss peapods cornwall, UK MV/EE/FLOWER/ANRAM from "freak flag (i wanna make you moan like karen black) tapers pit: spectra. 2. get right church (13:55) la sala ressa montreal, canada LOW from "econoline natives" tapers pit: spectra.
The record features MV & EE channelling some spaced out tones with various incarnations of The Bummer Road, the more free cosmic jamming back up unit they venture out with from time to time. This personnel this time round reads as a who's who of talent in the current psych/folk underworld-Jeremy Earl (Woods), Herbcraft, Carson "Smokehound" Arnold, Doc Dunn, Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra, Flower Corsano Duo), and Muskox. You're in for a treat of lunar blues, psych folk, and free form outer limit jammin'.
Matt "MV" Valentine and Erika "EE" Elder-joined here by cosmic-improv luminary Mick Flower-play in support of Space Homestead, their latest dispatch of warmhearted, homegrown psych-folk. Also on the bill is the tender Magik Markers spin-off Spectre Folk. Posted: Thursday March 15 2012.
Michael "Mick" Flower is a founding member of Vibracathedral Orchestra and operates himself in a similar musical territory which focuses on the droning element of strings, guitars, wind instruments and handheld percussion. Occasional vocal mutterings may remind people of traditional Indian ragas, while other parts of his work hints more at the academic influence of say a Henry Flynt or Tony Conrad.
While originally a duo, MV & EE have recruited a variety of peers and appeared under such monikers as The MV & EE Medicine Show, MV/EE and The Bummer Road, MV/EE and The Golden Road, and MV/EE an. Fuzzweed is the fifth MV & EE set to appear on Three Lobed Recordings (only two of which remain in print). The duo is joined by, among others, usual suspects Mick Flower, Andy Anram Ramsay, Smokehound Arnold, and Coot Moon on a program of five originals including the Poor Boy Excursions suite. The side closes with Jacked Up, a quartet with Doc Dunn on pedal steel and Coot Moon on clavinet; although a bit more meandering in its improvisational locus, there’s tension in the piece that is interesting. Poor Boy Excursions takes up the entire second side; in Dead parlance, it might read as Poor Boy Long Way from Home Environments, though it was constructed in the studio.
