Various - PRES Revisited (Józef Patkowski In Memoriam)




Yeah, I have a glitchy mojo. Living in a Covid world is arse. Getting Covid and having to deal with the long-form is arse. Losing family to Covid is arse. And still having to go to work is arse. And, a couple of my feline tribe left the building recently. That was proper arse with a capital ARSE. So yeah, boo fucking hoo. So that's why it's been quieter than normal around here. Not losing interest in the blog, just the will to live. They are different things and sarcasm doesn't translate written down which is a pisser because if it did I'd be award winning and rich! Then I could safely lose interest whilst paying someone else to do this bit ...

I have a few more examples of Polish sophistication before I ruin the atmosphere with a lovely long run of noise. So. without further ado: one disc with original compositions from (respectively) Eugeniusz Rudnik, Krzysztof Penderecki, Bohdan Mazurek and Bogusław Schaeffer. The second disc features interpretations of these works by combinations of Phil Durrant, Mikołaj Pałosz, Eddie Prévost, Maciej Śledziecki and John Tilbury. Not bad eh?

Double CD released on Bôłt in 2010. It's not MP3.

Thanks as ever for the opportunity to explore further - am really enjoying the Polish offerings that you have kindly shared with us. Incidentally, are you aware of the Wolf 5th Archive? It's a treasure trove of C20th avant garde which kinda rubs shoulders with some of your more recent posts.
Sorry to hear you are having such a shitty time - I hope things start looking better very soon.

Sorry to hear about your misfortunes - and many thanks for the wonderful Polish posts! Especially Rudnik has been a great discovery for me!
And since the Bottom of the World compilation has wet my appetite for more NZ noise, is there any chance that you re-up the Omit albums? Epecially Quad would be highly appreciated!
Again, many thanks and keep up the good work!
Best wishes from Munich!

Another fantastic offering from the Polish studios! You should be award-winning and rich for your services to the history of electronic music. But you'll have to settle for being loved.
