V/A-ANGELICA 91, CD, 1992 + ANGELICA 92, CD, 1993, VARIOUS

Two CD's chock-o-block full of R.I.O. and improv shenanigans from these festival documents. Angelica 91 featured a particularly avant-vocalist intensive lineup and their contributions comprise most of the highlights of this CD; the kooky faux mournful gambits of a quartet comprised of Shelly Hirsch, Tom Cora, Lol Coxhill and David Weinstein, Carles Santos' deranged conflation of gooning and jabbering repetitive vocal cells and percussive cod-classical piano pounding and Phil Minton, David Weinstein and Veryan Weston's mad duck quacking, maudlin synths and wayward piano splatter all earning pride of place here. Angelica 92 might initially strike you as a bit more patchy, but thats just because they've shunted all the worthwhile bits to the end of the CD for some mysterious reason. Stick around for it and you'll find a great 20 minutes of stuff; Que D'La Gueule's beautifully disjunctive big band bricollage and around 10 minutes of gorgeous catagory-resistant hubbub from Fred Frith "Workshop".

Thanx for sharing! Was planning to get these discs for years, but it never materialised.

IMO this set represents not the top peak performances of the artists contained, but gives a good overlook of the change of the genre at the date.

Some new strains shown up here are noteworthy. Especially the inuit pieces are outstanding!
