ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The first release on their own 'unsuitable' label, Dj /rupture and Andy Moor's debut CD Patches bring together the unusual combination of guitar and turntables to powerful effect. Rupture and Moor come from opposite though not opposed musical worlds, not to mention different continents. Guitarist Moor arrives from the post-punk exuberance of the Dog Faced Hermans, The Ex, and Kletka Red. Rupture came up through his adventurous and influential take on dancefloor DJing which led him to a stint as turntablist with Norah Jones' old band and the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra. Both have nonstop musical curiosity, and after playing together a few times, they quickly found a common language, combining Moor's exploratory fretboard antics and saw-toothed guitar sounds with Rupture's dark but warm grimey bass riddims and rich textural soundscapes built from avant-garde turntablism.
These 15 tracks were recorded live at the duo's shows across Europe. Their arresting sound world flows from irresistable melodies underpinned by Rupture's serrated beats to sonics colliding with virtuoso precision into angular displacement and dissonance. Improvised live, you can hear ideas being explored with quick-reflexes and the sensitivity of musicians who listen, using silence as a compositional tool.
Occasionally they veer into total free improvisation, with Rupture conjuring up extraordinarily obnoxious sounds purely from vinyl manipulation and Moor making his guitar sound like it's strung with highly charged telephone cables - but somehow they always manage to keep a central pulse going and never seem to lose their way.
Patches cooks up an unlikely stew of Kenyan kipsigis singing girls from the 50s and scratching discordant guitar and Diana Ross. Timeblind's dubstep beats, Varese, and Japanese noise meet with big crunchy whammy chords. Bass Clef, Steve Reich, Tracy Chapman and Sardinian fishermen songs get flipped and fried... impossible but tasty.
