NOKUIT - LIVE AT CAFE OTO — OUT NOW!

Purchase / Listen: https://wannamarchi.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-cafe-oto

NKT presents an audio document of Nokuit’s debut live performance which took place in the sweat lodge of Cafe OTO during midsummer 2018.
Nokuit’s appearance, alongside Flora Yin-Wong, Ausschuss and Mun Sing, mapped out the terrain explored across his discography thus far. From the psychological spaces of early releases Analysis Paralysis and Reality Disappears After Waking to the global, drone-eye view of the most recent Patterns of Instability, this is a hallucinatory cartography of vast expanses and intricate detail. A soundtrack to a film that has left its screenwriters behind, the unshackled camera runs riot across the set before drifting in on itself and out into the world, asleep at the wheel.
Over thirty minutes, distorted visions and smeared vignettes from past recordings are reconfigured into a familiar yet mysterious manifestation, marking an uncanny conclusion to this first cycle of Nokuit releases.

Recorded by Shaun Crook at Cafe OTO, 17 August 2018
Mastered by Carlo Ascrizzi at Steel Health Studios, London
Design by Martin Kellett
Photography by Nokuit
Thanks to Flora Yin-Wong

i was thinking about this. like obviously it's pushing a line, a fascistic one, but doesn't everyone do that? as in, they're being transgressive for the sake of it, cos that's the vibe. like punks wearing swastikas or ian curtis going round with 'HATE' on his jacket.

i did throw their music on yesterday for a bit - sounded like fairly generic noise stuff that is the same as any number of gigs i've been to. like the music itself, i didn't hear any fascism in it, is what i mean.

so i'm saying they are just posturing, and it's working, cos we're yamming about it, and like others have said, if nothing else, you've gotta admire their persistence and the fact they got a gig at oto.

i know this conversation has been had btw, but whatever. i feel like a lot of the same conversations just have to be had again and again.

ps: is there anything to the rumour about OTO being the Crowley thing? Or is it just a coincidence?

One of them has the hitler moustache tattooed above his top lip. His real name is actually Cyril.

I always think ppl with face tattoos are interesting, but i talked to a guy once who hadloads of shit all over his face and he said he just gotpissed and thought it was a funny thing to do at the time. He was dead gentle and normal. All these people, theyre all nice and polite at hear, like goths, they just wanna be friends.

Couronne de Merde — اتمنى لو ان الریاح تجلي الرماد

Out Friday 5th June
PRE-ORDER: https://wannamarchi.bandcamp.com/album/-



BEIRUT, Lebanon — a haunted city. The dead look out from the bullet holes which scar the public squares and back streets, presided over by the monumental ruin of the Holiday Inn, overlooking the city from its sea front cathedra.

Broken Britain Cassettes advances its World Service campaign eastward with an anatopic release from Frenchman Couronne de Merde, who became preoccupied by the Lebanese Civil War after repeated visits to Beirut. Recorded over a week in Paris, these tracks are an exorcism of the ghosts who followed him back.

Spectral voices lurk behind the shell-shocked synths and an urgent battery of percussion. Proceedings move forward and backwards in time - at once observing the event and recalling it afterward. Disparate scenes and incidents are conflated in a trans-historical bloodbath, underscored by a sorrowful ambience which longs for meaning in Sacrifice.

Couronne de Merde casts an unflinching gaze at theocratic and political contradictions. ﺍﺗﻤﻨﻰ ﻟﻮ ﺍﻥ ﺍﻟﺮﻳﺎﺡ ﺗﺠﻠﻲ ﺍﻟﺮﻣﺎﺩ is a poetic documentation and dramatisation of a modern conflict, this late iteration of ancient struggles between Religion and Secularity, Christianity and Islam, Dominance and Freedom.

بيروت.لبنان-المدينة المسكونة.
القنلى ينظرون بحذر عبر فجوات الرصاص التي شوهت وجوه الشوارع العامة، ومن اهمها الخراب الضخم في اوتيل الهوليدي ان ،الذي يشرف على بيروت من حهة البحرية، كالاسفف على عرشه.
ضمن حملتها العالمية للخدمات ، اصدرت Broken Britain Cassettes عمل ابداعي للفرنسي ,Couronne de Merde ,
الذي اسدى اهتمام خاص للحرب الاهلية اللبنانية وذلك عبر زياراته المتتالبة لبيروت.
تم تسجيل هذا العمل في باريس خلال اسبوع،وقد استوحى Couronne de Merde من هذا العمل القدرة عاى طرد اشباح الموت والدمار الذي رافقته خلال زيارته لبيروت وذلك عبر موسيقاه.

تكمن اصوات هذه الموسيقى الخيالبة خلف الصدمات المقلقة والملحة غي الايقاع
، اتسافر بنا عبر الزمن.-
نراقب الحدث ونستدعيه بعد حين

مشاهد وحوادث متباينة يتم خلطها في حمام دم تاريخي عابر ، ترافقه أجواء حزينة تتوق إلى معنى التضحية .

Couronne de Merde
يلقي نظرة لا تتزعزع على التناقضات الدينية والسياسية,

هو توثيق شعري ودرامية لصراع حديث
بين الدين والعلمانية ,المسيحية
والإسلام,الهيمنة والحرية

يا ليت الرياح تجلي رماد الماضي

Fucks sake you can't just keep spamming with your shitty music without joining in and answering a few questions who do you think you are

one of my dissensus highlights of last year was when I noticed them browsing the Dinner of the Day thread. wish I'd taken a screen shot, would have been great. like seeing a celebrity at the laudromat doing a dark wash, incongruous yet humanizing.

Actually it was really terrible when that Whitehouse one had to make a post saying he wasn't racist or homophobic, really put me off the whole thing. Probably best to keep quiet and let the shit visuals and texts do the talking
