THE NO NECK BLUES BAND

"Clomeim" is an evolution, a vital document of change in The No-Neck Blues Band's 15 plus years of para-musical activity. This pivotal recording is a creative distillation of the collective at a new and startling saturation point. For three rainy days in March 2007, the seven-headed hydra that is NNCK holed up in Black Dirt Studios, their newly outfitted recording studio in the foothills of upstate New York. With a discipline and a clarity of vision they've rarely displayed before, the collective channeled all of their energies into hours of recording live, real-time improvisation. After months spent sculpting and recasting the raw material, "Clomeim" emerged - a distinct whole, recalling in its parts the communal howl of Algarnas Tradgard, the dead spirit channeling of Geino Yamashiro Gumi, the glacial shadowplay of "Heresie" era Univers Zero, and Krautrock zenith Faust at their finest hour. "Clomeim" is that rare hybrid - a rock exterior with a cryptic, experimental core; a dense groover and a burning, exploratory psychedelic grimoire for the new dark ages.

No Neck Blues Band

Letters From The Earth

One of the most enigmatic, mysterious, and defiantly anti-commercial groups to emerge from the New York loft scene during the 90s, the No-Neck Blues Band formed in 1992 around a consistent core of multi-instrumentalists who have stubbornly and admirably insist on individual anonymity. Incorporating elements of folk, drone, psychedelia, free jazz, noise, and just about everything else, NNCK have nevertheless carved out a distinctive sound from complementary and disparate component elements. "Letters From The Earth" was NNCK's first digital output and is a document of their first ever outdoor Orthodox Easter concert in 1996. This double CD outputs 111 or so minutes worth of this group's dizzying array of sonic blattage, cable disruption, tribal tranceadelics and trip or drone aesthetic.

No-Neck Blues Band

Letters From The Earth

One of the most enigmatic, mysterious, and defiantly anti-commercial groups to emerge from the New York loft scene during the 90s, the No-Neck Blues Band were formed in 1992 around multi-instrumentalist Keith Connelly and percussionist Dave Nuss. Sometimes operating more as an artists' collective or commune than a band, NNCK (as the group is often abbreviated) membership is in a state of near-constant flux. Determindly improvisational and experimental in nature their distinctive sound cascades with seemingly random elements. 1996's "Letters From Earth" was their defining recording with wildly abstract and formless meanderings that defy convention and commerciality.
