Press release from Black Petal
#5 mattin 'songbook 3'
post-VU down-strummed trash nihilism and savage
intent. werner dafeldecker (autistic daughters, polwechsel, etc) adds
his most bloody-minded bass playing on half the tracks, and the other
half feature Noid of Vienna on cello. cdr with handmade covers.
(July 2006, UK)
In Vital Weekly 506 we discussed the odd 'Song Book' release by Mattin,
and somewhere along the lines I missed 'Song Book 2' as here Black
Petal releases the third volume. Mattin plays again acoustic guitar,
and gets help on seven tracks by Werner Dafeldecker on electric bass,
and on six more by Noid on cello. It's Mattin doing Lou Reed, and
trying to make it more worse than Reed. As much as I like a good joke,
or perhaps a good concept, or perhaps even both (at the same time), I
don't see much point in this. The first time around it was too long
already, so why continue. "If you like it that much, I'll do it again".
But all three releases on Black Petal, Anthony Guerra's label, have
excellent cover, nice paper, nice folding, very stylish. (FdW)
