EVENTS: Friday. Jan 2nd: U.S. GIRLS & CIRCUIT des YEUX

"If the alluring moniker used by Megan Remy conjures images of volleyball teams or cheerleading squads, forget it. Not that there's any doubt that Remy--sorry, U.S. Girls--couldn't rise and conquer either challenge.
Like fellow DIY ingenues Sally Strobelight and Inca Ore, U.S. Girls' approach is deceptively ethereal and delightfully haunting; lithe, lysergic gamma rays of keyboard murk beamed over percussive bonk sort of resemble Diamanda Galas reinterpreting Suicide's Red Star. And dig that cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Prove It All Night," done in such an effortless, barbital lush you'd swear the air was filled with mescaline. Guess what? It's not." -Siltbreeze

"In her cover version of The Kinks melancholy anthem 'Days,' U.S. Girls sticks to Albert Einstein's wise maxim 'Make it as simple as possible, but not simpler.' The dirgey clatter of the drums brings to mind images of old steam machines advancing through vast fields where things grow slow and women sing folk songs which are eternal because they are sung from the heart and nothing else. U.S. Girls' voice does this, free from decoration, frills or pretense, mapping the country of the soul with a burning honesty strange in this reality, something we also find in the ballads of Acid Mothers Temple sorceress Cotton Casino."

"Haley Fohr aka Circuit Des Yeux. Fohr is also one half of the supremely primitive guitar / drums post - Shaggs teenage femme duo Cro Magnon (not the ESP-Disk wildmen, obviously) and she comes from Lafayette, Indiana. Symphone is a beautifully confusing blossom from the same void that birthed Jandek, Jim Shepard, Adris Hoyos et al albeit cut with some almost Diadal-styled avant confusion (though for some reason it doesn't feel quite so 'conceptual'), hysterically lo-fi recording environs, vibrations culled from the furthest fringes of the 90s underground (Leslie Q et al) and a twist of classy teen - tantrum-into-strung-out-psychosis that can't fail to hit the spot." -Dave Keenan

Eastern European Art

Amei Wallach, Ilya Kabakov: The Man Who Never Threw Anything Away(Hardback) $29.95 (out of print!)

Kabakov, of the former U.S.S.R, questions and comments on the human experience using debris from his own life. From guitars to newspapers to refuse, Kabakov's installations use basic objects to examine complex issues in ways both humorous and profund. This text includes a catalog of the artist's works, an introduction by Robert Storr, as well as commentaries by Kabakov himself.

FEATURED: What She Said...

World War I as experienced by actual and fictional characters. Pat Barker's trilogy - Regeneration, The Eye in the Door, The Ghost Road - is a profound look at the devastation of war on civilians and soldiers alike. Stark, unflinching, haunting.

The ever delightful and surprising Muriel Spark tackles mortality, death, and old age in the wickedly funny Memento Mori. A group of elderly friends are harassed by a mysterious phone caller who leaves the simple, concise message: "Remember, you must die."

J.K. Rowling has called Dodie Smith's 17-year old Cassandra Mortmain, avid chronicler of I Capture the Castle, "one of the most charismatic narrators I've ever met." In several sixpenny books, and over six months, Cassandra writes of her eccentric family, the poverty and joys visited upon them, and her own first flutterings of love. Castle is that rare book that is as poignant as it is recognizable.

Hons and Rebels is Jessica Mitford's tell-all of her vastly entertaining and notorious family. Jessica, a devout communist, is at odds (and ends) with most of said family much of the time. A great first step into all things Mitford, especially the sisters: Nancy scandalizes the family with her thinly-veiled and bestselling novels; Diane marries fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley; Unity Valkyrie falls for Hitler and becomes a Nazi sympathizer; and Debo, a relief, marries well and remains apolitical. Pamela, the quiet one, prefers country life and her dogs.

EVENTS: Saturday, December 6th: MAX OCHS & GHOST SHIP



Maryland's Max Ochs recorded two influential guitar pieces on a long out-of-print Takoma LP, 'Contemporary Guitar Spring '67', alongside tracks by John Fahey, Bukka White, Robbie Basho and Harry Taussig. 'Hooray For Another Day' contains exciting new instrumental works from this American Primitive master, including a new take on Fahey's arrangement of "In Christ There Is No East or West". The disc also contains several spoken word poems, one entitled "Phil", for Max's cousin, the late folk legend Phil Ochs. Max's tune "Imaginational Anthem" inspired the guitar compilation series of the same name on Tompkins Square. The album is a stirring personal statement from an overlooked yet vital American artist." -Tompkins Square


A trio consisting of Mary Lattimore, Rosali Middleman, and Charles Cohen, Ghost Ship play dark improvised string and synth tangles. For this show they will be working as a duo, with plucked harp sweeps and strands of electric guitar. -m.m.
