Live At The Battersea Arts Centre, London (2009)

  • Excerpt from Performance

    "Excerpt from a live performance with Phil Minton which was part of the Adam Bohman curated 'New Year, New Sounds' week of improvised music. I had to have a friend drive me up to London just after some of the worst snow storms in the south for many years. We made it up suprisingly easy, but our good ju-ju was to run dry on the reurn home, as we were pulled over by some real horrendous traffic cops, then got lost, then had the car pack in on us several miles from Brighton. Despite standing on a freezing snow covered embankment of the motorway in the wee small hours of the morning waiting on rescue, I couldn't stop smiling." - Dylan Nyoukis

    Dubbeltwee (2008)

    1. Scheurmannen (ig take)

    2. Ballerman (pause take)

    3. Halfway Between The Pension & The Wreath (last take)

    Three tracks taken from the Collaboration LP with Jaap Blonk, released on Ecstatic Peace in 2008 in an edition of 400, but recorded sometime around 2001.

    ""Here is one of the most anticipated head-scratching meeting-of-the-(insane) minds recordings ever rumored to have existed: the blabber-gunk vocalistix of Chocolate Monk honcho and musical zone/zap improv outsider and founder of Decaer Pinga (nee Prick Decay) DYLAN NYOUKIS and the high-energy consistently startled and startling voicebox-tongue shredder JAAP BLONK. Nyoukis from the UK and Blonk from The Netherlands bash heads and gums together to splat out a relentless and rapacious slew of ululation and indescribable utterance. If vocal duo improv of the most bizarre order is yr meat then pull a stool up to this table and get a snoot full o' what-the-fuck. Wicked weirdness." - Ecstatic Peace

    Sugar: The Other White Meat (2003)

    1. The Galloping fingers of Biscuit Meek

    2. Interested In Fashion, Harmonica?

    Two Thirds of the collaboration LP with Alvarius B (Alan Bishop of Sun City Girls). The first track is solo, while the second track is a collaboration with myself and Alan. The original concept for the LP was hatched by Harmony Korine (see notes below), and you can hear a couple of answer machine message he left for Alan in this piece. The LP also included several solo pieces by Alavrius B (not included here). It was released in 2003 by New Yorks Catsup Plate records in an edition of 500." - Dylan Nyoukis Sugar: the Other White Meat brings together two of the central figures of underground sound-whatzit and general audio curiosities: Alvarius B (of Sun City Girls fame) and Dylan Nyoukis (one-half of the UK's Decaer Pinga/Prick Decay). Side A of the LP features each of the two in solo mode: Alvarius with five songs of varying length and Dylan with one twelve minute piece. The B side of the LP is a side-long collaborative track.

    "Sugar was originally conceived by Harmony Korine to be a four-way split between Alvarius, Nyoukis, Will Oldham, and Absalom (Korine's "White Metal" band). But Korine went MIA and Oldham hadn't heard of the project when Dylan asked him about it later. By this point, Alvarius and Dylan had already finished their respective contributions and, rather than scrap the project altogether, decided to create a collaborative piece to take up the missing second side of the LP. Dylan sent over source material, which Alvarius cut, spliced and mixed in with his own sound sources (including some drunken answering machine messages from Mr. Korine).

    So what's the listener to expect from this stew? Those familiar with Alvarius B will find much of his range represented in his five songs: quasi-ethnic ramblings, wordless vocal ramblings (w/the TV on in the background), Django-esque guitar runs, and the absolutely amazing and unclassifiable "DJ South Bitch," which is sort of all of the above. Dylan's solo contribution continues in the vein of his Shield That Pierces the Earth album, with a simple sanshin underpinning that eventually gives way to subtle tape manipulation, musique concrete, and generally engaging, but head scratching sounds of all sorts. The collaborative piece runs the gamut over its 24+ minute duration: broken electronics, field recordings near a gas 'n' sip (or some such), shortwave radio, actual songs (!), the aforementioned answering machine rant, ambient cafeteria noise, thunderstorms — you know, pretty much everything." - CatsupPlate Records
