We are delighted to present to you a truly special Latitudes session from Seattle’s men of mystery, the Master Musicians Of Bukkake. Entitled Elogia de la Sombra, the session spans two tracks, and 31 minutes of aural exploration. The first track is a sumptuous canyon of melody and timbre and the second an arcane tribute to Krautrock pioneers such as NEU! and and Can.
Master Musicians Of Bukkake are an enchanting collective, comprising a fine pedigree of musicians from bands as diverse as Earth, Sun City Girls and Burning Witch. With an amalgam of global influences drawn from music, philosophy, mysticism, and the kitchen sink, they are difficult to pigeonhole, but this is to their credit as MMOB are entirely original and when they come together, the result is truly magical.
Elogia de la Sombra was recorded at Southern Studios by Harvey Birrell on 17 April 2010. Additional tracking and mixing at Aleph Studios in Seattle. Produced by Randall Dunn. Mastered by Mell Dettmer. Artwork by Randall Dunn and A.Turner.
Elogia de la Sombra is the 24th recording in the Latitudes series. Edition of 1000 copper foil-stamped and hand assembled CDs and 1000 LPs (300 grey, 700 black).
We are chuffed as chips to be publishing our very first book. This is an exciting moment for us, and we couldn’t be happier that the book in question is Steve Ignorant’s autobiography, The Rest Is Propaganda. Written with Steve Pottinger over the last two years, The Rest Is Propaganda tells the story of a young boy growing up in Dagenham, East London, in the shadow of the Ford factory. How that boy eventually went on to form the influential punk band Crass with Penny Rimbaud is only one part of the story of how Stephen Williams became Steve Ignorant.
Tonight is the night that Chrome Hoof take over east London when they launch their second album, Crush Depth, at Hackney’s Bocking Street Warehouse. A spectacular evening is planned, with a very special HUGE SURPRISE too! For one night and one night only this huge warehouse will be transformed into the Chrome Hoof space station where you will be taken on an inter-planetary voyage of discovery through space, time and music.
