Statto - The man and his music
#1

Typically humble, our glorious leader has been hiding his light under a bushel in relation to one of his musical escapades which has recently been uncovered here:

Check out Statto killing it with some 80s post punk/experimental/industrial/ambient business:

Quote:Metamorphosis are an impressive 4 piece from Nottingham whose ideas and performance are pretty unique. Experimental music with an array of instruments - including glockenspiel, clarinet, trumpet, etc. - over rhythms. Their early music shows a new angle on music and a strong feeling for ambience. Already they have moved on and developed a new sound of their own. Consisting of Jonathan Tait, Matthew Collin, Meloni Poole and Nick Cope, their musical progression - the most important aspect of their existence - is reproduced in words and pictures in a series of small scale publications put together by the individual members - 'Y', Mowbray Product, 391 and Hiatus...

I listen to a lot of this stuff, and am a regular at that blog, and despite the huge amount of similar music on offer, I was struck by this album when I listened to it - it is indeed a great LP.

Hats off!

What do you do on it by the way Statto? I remember you telling me once upon a time outside Cargo, that you hit sheets of metal and stuff. Was that this?

no, that was in our later free improv incarnation The Threepenny Group; and the sheets of metal were just sound sources (hit, bowed, scraped, squeaked, tickled, etc), set up with contact mics and processed through electronics.

on this, errmm, I can't actually remember. I know I hit various things: drums, percussion, glockenspiel, metal pipes and so forth (though that's not just me); I probably play flute and recorder; errmm, is there any piano on it? Most of it was constructed on a four-track rather than played out live, so it's not obvious who's doing what.

wossat? Smile

but anyway, the only other stuff I have is personal cassettes of live recordings and I don't want to make those publicly available (I didn't put this LP up either for that matter Wink), mainly because I don't know that the others would be happy about it.

I dunno, they might not give the slightest fuck, but then again they might give a great big fuck, since everything ended rather acrimoniously and I haven't seen any of them in over 20 years.
