We're incredibly excited to present Linda Sharrock / (In) The Abyssity Of The Grounds – the brand new ensemble from the legend of free jazz! Performing ahead of the release of Gods – a brand new 3LP set on Golden Lab Records – we're thrilled to host Sharrock for the very first time.
“A truly stunning, demented, and absolutely essential bombardment of relentless energy by one of the giants of avant-garde music.” – Golden Lab on (In) The Abyssity Of The Grounds.
“First major release of brand new material arguably since her work with Wolfgang Puschnig in the late ’80s by one of free jazz’s most important icons whose transition via a debilitating stroke into deep, guttural wordlessness has seen her enter a new realm of primal vocal raging. This is Linda Sharrock, best known for her show-stealin’ voice work on ex-husband Sonny’s two albums Black Woman and Monkey-Pockie Boo, at her wailing, heart-stopping best, flanked by a stellar group of Theresa Eipeldauer (voice), Mario Rechtern (soprano, alto, baritone, saxoline and voice), Max Bogner (guitar, electronics and voice) and Didi Kern (drums), recorded in 2014 for over TWO HOURS presented here across THREE heavyweight vinyl LPs. A truly stunning, demented and absolutely essential bombardment of relentless energy by one of the giants of avant-garde music.” – Press release for for Gods
