Steven Stapleton and Christoph Heemann- Painting with Priests CD

Yesmissolga presents the CD release of the long-fabled duo collaboration by Steven Stapleton and Christoph Heemann. This historic live performance took place on November 21, 2009, at the ancient Ivrea Synagogue in Ivrea, Italy. After working together for many years on various Current 93, Nurse with Wound, and H.N.A.S.sessions, these two old friends met for a rare moment of performance completely independent of thematic material and engaged in a near-telepathic, mysterious one-to-one improvisation, where textural worlds merge, hot, on the spot. While one may discover an intriguing intersection between each of their respective solo works, the real magic of this duo encounter evokes something strangely unfamiliar and altogether new. With this generous edit of the highly acclaimed concert, Painting with Priests exhibits a rare session of both artists’ eccentric talents in a palette of colors and mystery across a highly detailed musical canvas. Front cover features new artwork by Stapleton, with back cover featuring a previously unpublished drawing by Heemann. Packaged in a full-color Japanese-style gatefold mini-jacket featuring a totally different Stapleton front cover and alternate mix from the LP version released on Robot Records/Elica Editions

Acid Cobra (AKA Amaury Cambuzat) – Petrified Minds CD

Acid Cobra is Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator, Faust), who has remained a cult figure throughout a career that has included collaborations with Jaki Liebezeit (Can), Michael Gira (Swans), Robin Guthrie(Cocteau Twins), Jac Berrocal (Catalogue), Faust, Pascal Comelade, and so many other luminaries from the international music scene. Yesmissolga, Acid Cobra Records, and Lumberton Trading Company present Petrified Minds, a collection of solo works by this curious figure of the avant-garde. Fusing wiry yet strong song-craft with the faintest air of psychedelia, a dash of avant-weirdness, and fervent post-punk sensibilities, this album catches some of Cambuzat’s most focused work so far. Released in a limited edition of 300 copies in a full-color digipak with original art by Acid Cobra

Art-Errorist & Acid Cobra – Cold Waters CD

Cold Waters is the result of a very short yet intense meeting between Jean-Hervé Péron (Faust) and Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator). The duo met in the French countryside at Carina’s silk mill: two days, two mics, two friends and a dog…from hilarious to heart-striking, these “Songs from the Mill ” flowed through them. Cold Waters, far from being an anecdotal side note to their ongoing collaborative efforts in the legendary band Faust, reaffirms the duo’s successful explorations as the boucaniers of avant-rock.This album covers the seven seas of joyful play, swirling liquid psychedelia, pounding waves of aural textures, delicate drones, stormy meanderings which break into exalting voyages beyond this bucolic countryside and end in a rock and roll rodeo round up. Dive into Cold Waters and you too will come up crying out in joy.

Jean-Hervé Péron  and Amaury Cambuzat have been working together for about a decade in Faust but both have side projects under Art Errorist and Acid Cobra respectively. Cold Waters was  originally released on Cambuzat’s Acid Cobra Records as an extremely limited CD-R release in the Acid Cobra Family series, available only through the artists. Now officially available through yesmissolga in a  full color digipak CD including artwork, photos and liner notes.

 Charlemagne Palestine – The Apocalypse Will Blossom CD

yesmissolga presents her debut release with a stunning piano performance by Charlemagne Palestine. The Apocalypse Will Blossom brings Palestine’s recorded work thundering into the 21st century. Working in the lower registers of the piano, as he did in the late 70’s, this intensely powerful live performance is unlike anything previously released by Palestine. The Apocalypse Will Blossom offers the closest experience you can have to hearing Palestine live without witnessing one of his performances.

The Apocalypse Will Blossom was recorded by Christoph Heemann in Aachen, Germany at the Ludwig Museum in 2000 on the occasion of the 1200 year celebration of Charlemagne. In 2007, Christoph Heemann, leaving the original recording intact, subsequently processed and reworked the original tapes leaving his distinct contribution. It was then beautifully (re)mastered by Kevin Spencer.

This recording is offered in a CD digipak printed in full color with a collage inspired by Palestine’s visual work representing the four horsemen of the apocalypse and an original collage detail of Triomph de la Morte by the french artist Jacques Brissot a modernized interpretation of Bruegel’spainting of the same name. Charlemagne, Now!
