Copydex/Gwilly Edmondez live at WFMU on Do or DIY with People Like Us, August 11, 2008.
-via Nash Rose at WFMU's Beware of the Blog:
I'll go ahead and divide Gwilly Edmondez's work into two distinct categories: (1) manipulating sample speed with this weird little box he’s got and (2)
making crazy, expressive cave man grunts while flubbing around violently on a guitar. The latter category, a little less pleasing than the former, is usually released under the Yesterday In Parliament moniker. YIP's approach reminded me immediately of Henry Flynt's ragas or Sun City Girls' channeling of feax-languages, but I think this stuff is drawing in particular from classic Brigand dada punks Radioactive Sparrow. As to the former category, Edmondez has been collaborating recently with shredder saxophonist Karl D’Silva to great effect. Their stuff sounds quite a bit like many of John Zorn’s duo recordings of the last decade.
.... A SITUATIONIST APPROACH is also characteristic, as demonstrated in this live set on a train.
