PHEW was a founding member of the legendary Japanese punk band Aunt Sally. After the band’s breakup in 1979, she continued her career as a solo artist, releasing a collaborative single with Ryuichi Sakamoto in 1980, and her first solo album, ‘Phew’, with Conny Plank, Holger Czukay of CAN, and Jaki Liebezeit in 1981. In 1992, her third album, OurLikeness, was released on MUTE, again at Conny’s studio, with Jaki Liebezeit of CAN, Alexander Hacke of Einstürzende Neubauten, and Chrislo Haas of DAF. Since the beginning of the 2010s, she has released a series of works that combine voice and electronic music, and has gained international recognition as an electronic artist. Pitchfork has described her as “Japan’s underground legend.” She has also released collaborative works with Ana da Silva (Raincoats), Seiichi Yamamoto (Boredoms) and others. Phew's expansive album ‘Vertical Jamming’ is being released on vinyl for the first time via Disciples on 28 October, a special run on clear vinyl housed in a Studio Tape-Echo sleeve. A small number of advance copies will be on sale at this London show.
MODEL HOME is a hyperprolific experimental hip-hop formation from Washington D.C., instigated by rapper NappyNappa and producer Pat Cain. The duo recruits an ever-changing cast of collaborators to give each record a new feel: Model Home can sound like post-modern take on old school hip-hop, glitchy noise or even improvised exploration. The gist of Model Home is that the music pours out like from a faucet, faithfully channeling the chaos of the everyday thought. Model Home’s music would blend right in with a dystopia. The deteriorating sounds of Patrick Cain’s electronics would be impossible to distinguish from the constant construction that is the score of any contemporary city; NappyNappa’s enigmatic missives would be lost in the roar of public service announcements, personalized advertisements, and omnipresent sirens. Built on the edifice of dub sound systems and DIY basement clatter, their sound is made up of slabs of textured noise and decayed vocals. Disciples just released the duo’s sensational new album ‘Saturn In The Basement’ and it’s companion cassette, go seek!
