Top notch times touring the UK some weeks back. Played a bunch of Star Turbine shows, a couple of solo stints, well actually only one, come to think of it. But also some nice duo shows – with Tom White, Paul Watson and Luke Poot, respectively… Great times all around, and even went to some new places like Milton Keynes and Bradford. Big ups to everyone who put on the shows and thanks much to everyone who came around to the shows too!
These days I’m moving house, packing, sorting out stuff, dealing with real estate agents etc, so quite a bit of energy goes into that. Still, for now, one upcoming show:
MARCH 29TH – CONSUL80, STAVANGER – Release party for Drid Machine compilation LP. Doors open 7PM, first act on 8PM. Entry 150 NOK. Playing as BJERGA/IVERSEN + 7 other acts playing. Details: https://www.facebook.com/events/614512158624304/
I’ve also got some exciting touring plans for June/July, more on that in a bit…
Some new tapes just out now – SINDRE BJERGA/TERJE PAULSEN/ROADSIDE PICNIC “JAWED/FLAWED” on CARBON RECORDS (textural, hard edged and gritty trio improv) and SINDRE BJERGA/TOM WHITE “WATER INFORMATION” on TOTAL VERMIN (really dense collage mayhem and crazy tape delays). As always, get in touch.
I also have a couple of copies left of 2 different UK tour CDRs (one is a SINDRE BJERGA and POSSET split, the other is a 4-way split with STAR TURBINE, INSEMINOID, FORDELL RESEARCH UNIT and XAZZAZ.
Upcoming stuff includes solo tapes on Fabrica Records, Horror Fiction and Soundholes. There’s a couple of STAR TURBINE tapes in the pipe, and then there’s a release coming where a cast of top international players were asked to remix the SINDRE BJERGA & MICROMELANCOLIE “PRAYER CALLS” album from last year. This one will come out on a 12″ on Aurora Borealis and on a tape on Monotype.
That should be it for now, but make sure to check in from time to time!
