I just posted my relatively lengthy review of Michel Henritzi's "Keith Rowe Serves Imperialism" at Bags, here.

We'll see what transpires.....

yeah, very well-done review, I think, but I can't say I'm looking forward to the inevitably silly aftermath. I'm going to do my best to stay out of it, like I'm doing on the "Is Jazz Dead?' thread rolling on JC now, but I'm not optimistic. as for the record in question, I'm going to pass on checking it out even though people seem to like it.

that didn't last long. :)

Yeah I don't see that ending well. But definitely a great review Brian. All the criticism's and issues that were kind of flailed out in the IHM thread and elsewhere distilled into a coherent whole. Can't say the music actually sounds that interesting to me, but I suppose I may download it. The Kaiser on Tzadik comment - heh.

You know, every time I try to use an example to make a point, something I think to be entirely harmless, it never fails that there's someone who says, "Hey ! I like that stuff! Whaddya talkin' about!?!"

The amusing thing is I didn't even know Kaiser had something out on Tzadik!

yeah, I figured that, me neither. pretty funny.

fwiw, I sent the text of my review to Henritzi, Mattin and Keith and M. Henritzi replied this morning with a considered response. I have a feeling that if I was better able to read French or he better able to write English, there would have been much less to argue about with his actual text, though the title would still be a dumb gambit. As others have suggested, if you released a disc titled something like, "Evan Parker is a Child Molester", and then say it was just a provocative joke, well....

I'd like to publish it, edited for English comprehension, but since it was a private mail, I shant.

jon abbey said...

yeah, too bad he didn't explain himself better in the original text. that mail was a lot better, albeit still pretty misguided.

man, I hope the Bags part of this is over, but it never is. like the killer in a horror movie, it keeps coming back...
