ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Las Vegas Powercut is the ever-mutating project of Mark Lockett and various collaborators since 2000. For most of its existence LVPC has been a trio exploring the less-visited corners of acid jazz and Hammond organ psychedelia, (a nod to early Soft Machine, Egg, and late film noir). Currently, LVPC is a duo of electric cello, keyboards and electronics. The newly released 'Fish'n'Fusion' dwells in the same deep dark organ-dominated territory as the first eponymous 2007 album (Trevor Lines - bass, Wilfried Chevalier - drums) featuring beats, environmental sounds and gamelan samples, dense and textured; sometimes occupying more open space as soaring cello lines build bridges to classical and contemporary music.

Stanley Adler is a virtuoso of the electric cello: a five-string instrument by Steinberger that has the range of electric bass and cello combined. He applies his technical skill to a sound ranging from heavy bass lines to intense lyricism, to avant rock/free metal energy. Growing up in Chicago his early experiences of the blues led him to play with no wave bands in New York in the 1980s, and the London jazz scene in the 1990s. He's worked extensively with Lydia Lunch, Brian Eno, Arthur Brown, Carol Grimes and the Mike Westbrook orchestra.

Mark Lockett is a musical polymath. His experience and interests cover a vast range of world musics, (in particular Indonesian and Indian), free jazz, 20th century piano repertoire, electronica and performance art. As a composer he has worked in diverse musical settings; contemporary music performance, community projects, experimental and multimedia work with dancers, poets and film makers. He's worked as an arranger the Indian violin legend L Subramaniam, a composer for the Chitraleka Dance Company in Bangalore, Sanchita Pal and tabla virtuoso Ustad Sarvar Sabri.

After eight years of collaboration, Adler and Lockett's musical affinities find their most persuasive expression in this latest release.
