PETTIBON / YOSHIHIDE / AUGST / KORN / CARL, RAYMOND / OTOMO / OLIVER / CHRISTOPH / RÜDIGER - LONG LIVE THE PEOPLE OF THE REVOLUTION (LP)


"The point of origin for the radio play "Long live the people of the revolution" (Augst/Korn) are the texts Bruno Schönlank and Ernst Toller wrote in the 1910s and 1920s for the revolutionary speaking choirs which were part of the communist labour movement. Here, Otomo Yoshihide's manipulations of those original recordings meet Raymond Pettibon's captivating lyrics. His revisions and translations of those utopian pieces recall the texts of his drawings and paintings, also known since his collaborations with bands like Black Flag and Sonic Youth. Both are supported by the fabulous Frankfurt based trio Blank which consists of free-jazz legend Rüdiger Carl, Oliver Augst and Christoph Korn who both work in the grey are between improvised music, electronic music and free noise. Together with Yoshihide and Pettibon they transform that apparently anachronistic combination of art and politics into a highly challenging, at the same time touching piece of art.The design of the labels and the stunning silkscreen-cover is by Raymond Pettibon. Thanks to one of the most unique collaborations in contemporary art and music, both musically and textually "Long live the people of the revolution" is without doubt a masterpiece. The vinyl-only release is limited to 400 copies, a special edition of 40 copies, numbered and signed by Raymond Pettibon, will be available in summer."
