Album Notes
Lovelyjunk and the Soulmachine is the demented creative output of Buck Namaste (from punk-soul band Hotter Than A Crotch), and actor Ty Michael Robinson (from HBO's "Boardwalk Empire").
Born from the seething artistic underground of Brooklyn, NY, this eclectic free-form duo creates ominous and inventive compositions drawing from the aural pallet of noise, tension, soul and abandon.
They don't play songs...They play music.
All compositions, including Open Letter To Paul Bley, are performed and recorded live in the Bunker at Club Plantation-Bushwick, an infamous DIY venue/studio/homestead run by Robinson and Namaste. There's no overdubbing, multitracking or studio edits. What you hear is the contemplative pulse of creative acrobats spinning from the highwire--no nets.
Inspired by Dutch avant-garde warrior Han Bennink (ICP- Instantaneous Composers Pool), American free-jazz messiah Sun Ra, and art-punk bands like Sonic Youth, Lovelyjunk and the Soulmachine take an ultimately uninhibited approach to composition, performance and existence...often melding multiple mediums and genres, and often blurring the lines between their art and their lives.
This is music as cinema. This is the wailing, moaning jubilance and whimpering sighs of art for art's sake.
Lovelyjunk and the Soulmachine is the sound of the cutting edge just as it gives up all self-control.
