"The Prisoner" by Steve Mackay with Mike Watt, Henry Barnes, Kamilsky & Iggy Pop

Steve Mackay visits Beijing's Forbidden City, in between Chinese gigs

This year has been yet another strange chapter in the incredible musical voyage of Steve Mackay. After wrapping up a new album, he and his Stooges band-mates are touring the world once again. He joined his long time collaborators The Violent Femmes for a reunion show, the live Snakefinger album "History of the Blues" is going to be re-issued, and any free moment he is ready to join any of his numerous collaborators from 10 years of work with his "Radon Ensemble."

Preparing for our first release as Polyglot, "Sometimes Like This I Talk" we were thrilled when Iggy Pop offered to contribute vocals to a song and later used it for a feature in the New York Times-style "Godfather's of Glam" article. However, not being ones to brag...we credited his performance as Ypsi Jim, an old Michigan nickname. Unfortunately, the song received little attention and surprisingly the limited edition 7" has not even sold out.  

With our friends at WFMU and the Free Music Archive, we proudly offer a free listen to "The Prisoner" by Steve Mackay, with Mike Watt, Henry Barnes, Kamilsky and Iggy Pop.  

Please check out the other artists newly featured in the Polyglot archive as well, including AkrisCummingworth's EscapeSikhara, and Yang Zhong Gao. Feel free to contact Polyglot with questions about the artists.

Khoros Anima

On the 12th of May Soopa Colectivo will present a new piece entitled "Khōros Anima", featuring a mixed choir of 150 people, a percussion group and the collaboration of Alan Boans (microphone and accelerometer designer for DPA and Brüel & Kjær) in the live capture of geological sub-bass frequencies (using a rare prototype seismic instrument made for NASA).
 
It's going to be in Portugal, so i guess your physical presence is difficult, but you can listen to it here:
 
This piece is the closing event for SONORES a festival dedicated to radio and electromagnetic transmissions organized by SOOPA.

Sikhara's "Dong Tian" Available on FMA as net release

Scott Nydegger and Dave Howard (not pictured) on the Ninth Wave Mobile recording DAW for the cut "Dong Tian"

Ninth Wave Projects presents:

SIKHARA – “Dong Tian” / “冬天”

On line release

 

  In March, Sikhara made a series of concerts across China.  The duo of Scott Nydegger and Dave Howard were joined by collaborators including Steve Mackay, Nojiji collective, Chachy Englund, John Meyers and Xiao Di.

  While in Xi’an putting the finishing touches on an upcoming ep, Sikhara recorded a session in a construction site, while hammers and saws blared from the floor below. 

  “Dong Tian” is a bleak and minimal track produced by Ninth Wave’s mobile studio, with vocals in the Chinese language.  It serves as a documentation of this period in Sikhara’s unique musical voyage.

Steve MacKay/Sikhara China Tour

STEVE MACKAY The Prisoner (7") b/w United Scum Soundclash: Sevad Kooh - Radon/Soopa/URCK The lead single from the newest album of Steve Mackay is a brooding dirge called "The Prisoner". Fans of Mackay's classic sax work on songs like The Stooges' "Funhouse", will have no problem recognizing the guest vocalist. Mackay also provides the frontal assault on "Sevad Kooh" from "Machine Gun". U.S.S. shatter conventional notions of music with their detailed approach to sound.
