"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

"Bile Noire" makes me think of Iva Bittova's album "Bile Inferno". But actually "Bile" means "White" in Czech so she's not referring to an inferno of bile...

I dusted off my favorite old Bittovà tracks precisely inspired by hearing Baird play on Radio Ravioli.

Listened to this album earlier in the week. So eery and beautiful I think. Rip
Avatar 11:16am

I have the record, too but need to find the tim/space to play it. so sad.
Avatar 🎸 11:17am

Booz: If you ever get a chance to see Iva Bittovà, you should go. She's truly one of the best performers I've ever seen... she has an intense presence, and looks you right in the eye... and a brilliant musician. Just amazing. She's based in the USA now so her shows are a bit more accessible.
Avatar 🎸 11:19am

by "accessible" i don't mean the music, just the location :)
Avatar 🎸 Swag For Life Member 11:20am

Saw Bittová a bunch of times, but not in a few years. She seems to be based in Rhinebeck NY now? Ka Baird, btw, seems to have that same total commitment to the moment.
