KANIPCHEN-FIT play as part of BLURT' "PUPPETEERS OF THE WORLD UNITE" TOUR (PART ONE)
Kanipchen-Fit is a noisy, raucous and whole-hearted three-piece fronted by the axis of performance artiste and poet Gloria, and Empee Williams of the great Dutch bands Lul and Solbakken on guitar. Their strong suit is making an intelligent and inspiring racket. Gloria leads the line with a verve not often seen: at times breaking into a shuffling dance that gets a bit wired during some of the more acerbic guitar breaks. Empee snarls and pulls shapes on everyone’s behalf. The songs are simple and straightforward, double vocals, a rough and loud guitar, but with unexpected rhythmic and harmonic changes, avoiding rock-clichés. Grooving to Nina Simone, Young Marble Giants, Shuggie Otis, Suicide, Bad Brains, X-Ray Spex, Arab Strap, and ESG, to name but a few, the trio takes on very diverse subjects, for instance: prison entertainment, heroic alcoholics, torture on the radio, and late night braggadocio.
Ted Milton was a puppeteer before he founded BLURT. "Puppeteers Of The World, Unite!" was the first song he wrote & recorded - it was released by Factory Records on The Factory Quartet double album in 1980, then again the following year on the concert recording "Blurt In Berlin", & then reissued last year on the Fac Dance compilation...
Ted Milton will begin each show on this tour with a short "puppet" performance to introduce this song - BLURT will then play material from its earliest back catalogue right up to its most recent work - including the as-yet unreleased "Vous Etes Ici" written with Graham Lewis (Wire) - (the first performance of this song can be seen on utube under "Blurt At The Macbeth)...BLURT today is Ted Milton vcls/sax Steve Eagles gtr David Aylward drums
