GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR : F# A# oo

GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR : F# A# oo GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
lp: 16 €  (Sold out)
"Almost 64 minutes for just 3 experimental rock songs. Maybe songs isn't the right word: compositions might be better. Each composition on F# A# (Infinity) is at least 14 minutes long, consisting of a number of sections which are gently woven into each other. The arrangements move slowly, building from peaceful but dark musical landscapes to breathtaking and powerful pieces of music.

The nine band members from Montreal, Canada, play guitar, drums, bass, strings, keyboard, marimbas and woodwinds. Godspeed You Black Emperor! (a.k.a. Gybe!) compositions are fully instrumental but they use some voice-overs. Gybe! Might be compared with bands like Mogwai and Tortoise.

This first full-length album was initially a limited release of 550 LPs, but was released in 1996 onto CD as well. The three compositions: "Dead Flag Blues", "East Hastings" and "Providence" all deserve and need patience and intensive listening. Some pieces take you through five minutes of unconsciousness. Five minutes with the same structure, but details which makes your flesh creep. Then noisy but structured parts disturb the peace. But not for long. As easy as the noise came, it disappears again into nice floating music. F# A# (Infinity) is an album for the late hours. Lights down, glass of whiskey in your right hand, something to squeeze into your left hand, feet up and eyes closed..."

Apocalyptic post-rock. This is the best thing this band ever released, hence it's the best thing to come out of this genre.

Fans of “lift your skinny fists” will definitely be happy. Over sixty minutes of godspeed’s minimalist soothing music. “yanqui u.x.o.” is aptly named because u.x.o is unexploded ordnance is landmines is cluster bombs, while yanqui is post-colonial imperialism is international police state is multinational corporate oligarchy. Meanwhile godspeed is complicit, is guilty, is resisting.
