Wharton Tiers Ensemble at Coco66 this Thursday 10/17
Oct 17, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm| $8.00
Wharton Tiers, the multi-instrumentalist member of the No Wave groups Theoretical Girls, A Band and Glorious Strangers; and legendary producer of seminal recordings by Sonic Youth, Glenn Branca, Helmet, Dinosaur Jr, White Zombie, Biohazard and Quicksand, performs with his instrumental Ensemble for massed guitars this Thursday, October 17, at Coco66, 66 Greenpoint Avenue, Brooklyn.
FREEDOM NOW! by Wharton Tiers Ensemble is the first new album from the instrumental, massed-guitars group since Twilight Of The Computer Age (1999). Recorded to analog tape at Fun City Studio, the LP’s nine songs are true to the Ensemble’s signature symphonic-surf sound of hard bop saxophone, a guitar army, and Wharton’s hard-hitting drums.
The first single from Freedom Now!, “The Randomness Of Insects,” is now available as a free download from Bandcamp:
Also appearing: The Indecent and DJ Peter Aaron of Chrome Cranks.
