Various Artists – I Said No Doctors! (2xLP-Black/2xLP-Colored)


Artist: Various Artists
Label: Dymaxion Groove
SKU: DYMAXC107 Category:


“I Said No Doctors!” double-LP is a compilation of the most groundbreaking artists of current and past decades who have redefined sound by creating and destroying musical instruments to fit a specific sonic character and method of music-making. During this audio journey we hear Silver Apples’ Simeon Coxe combining bench oscillators, sound filters, telegraph keys and radio parts into one of the first electronic instruments. David Grubbs (Gastr del Sol, Bastro, Squirrel Bait, The Red Crayola) plays an alligator-clip prepared guitar. Markus Popp’s composition features his Oval Process software. Indonesian noise band Senyawa plays a modified Javanese farm plough. Dan Deacon generates an atonal barrage of MIDI-triggered pin-point notes from an acoustic grand piano. Jad Fair’s custom guitar, in which the neck attaches to the body using a system of rubber bands, allows dramatic bends. Bismuth, featuring Yuri Landman (who has built guitars for Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo of Sonic Youth) performs on prepared guitars and other instruments created by his Hypercustom Guitars. Ciat Lonbarde’s Peter B plays the Deerhorn synthesizer. The compilation is curated by Dymaxion Groove founder Tom Tolleson, who plays a modified Fender Jazzmaster with a _ ratio of separate playable strings over two pickups on the album as well. “I Said No Doctors” is a celebration of sound and artistry beyond the range provided by standard musical instruments. This double-LP is available in two variants, colored and black vinyl, both 180-gram, each with a digital download card.
