imprec148 - cd

black magic disco is the new all-star band featuring tom greenwood (jackie-o motherfucker), maurizio & roberto opalio (my cat is an alien) and ramona ponzini (painting petals on planet ghost, praxinoscope).

the project was born out of an idea from tom greenwood, leader of the avant-folk-blues ensemble jomf, who invited maurizio and roberto opalio, aka the italian improv duo my cat is an alien (mciaa), and their close collaborator ramona ponzini (also involved with the two brothers in the projects named painting petals on planet ghost and praxinoscope, as well as in the new collaboration with z'ev) to perform with him for two months of touring throughout all europe in may/ june 2005.

as one can imagine, the result was killer. the music which came out of he live performances was totally explosive, combining ramona's japanese vocals & hypnotic chimes with greenwood's psych-blues guitar attitude & wild turntablism, over mciaa's alien cosmic flux of electric guitars, space toys & percussions, creating a still unheard mixture of sounds unifying archaic & post-modern, western & eastern, sky & earth.

this debut cd represents a unique chance to experience almost 80 minutes of that pure and magic live action, divided in four long tracks taken from the original live recordings.

black magic disco's logo comes from the pencil of roberto opalio; the gatefold jacket cd artwork, curated by mciaa contains some band photos taken during the live performances included in the record.

jackie-o motherfuckervalley of fire” compact disc

  • sing (8:58)
  • valley of fire (5:54)
  • the tree (2:35)
  • we are / channel zero (20:20)
2007 release ; believe this is still the most recent album from this pdx group led by tom greenwood, produced by white rainbow’s adam forkner & featuring guest-vocals from eva “inca ore” salens ...

i’ve never been too much of a fan of these guys, but this has some really great moments, from the straight-up space-rock of the opening “sing” (listen to the sound-sample) to the free-form electro-acoustic collage of “we are / channel zero” ...

jomf - "valley of fire"

valley of fire contains 3 brand new finely crafted songs on side one, and on side two, a 20 minute classic psychedelic, dirt road journey the record represents two equally facinating aspects of jomf sonwriting, and musical arrangement. over the years, jackie-o motherfucker have spent equal time writing and arranging classic american folk and blues, and long, free-form compositions, drawing comparisons to 1960’s and 70’s ensembles like ash ra tempel, amon düül, amm, faust, can, and the art ensemble of chicago, while at the same time, developing a song crafting style that has drawn on a musical language passed down through generations.

from classic arrangements of traditional spirituals, and work songs from the american south, “go down old hanah”, “amazing grace” (fig. 5) to modern arrangements of greenwich village folk from the 1960’s, “somethings on your mind” - dino valente / karen dalton (liberation), to completely original jomf classics “everyday”, and “hey! mr. sky” (change, flags....) jackie-o motherfucker have trawled the dusty corners of history, and absorbed the languages of past generations, twisting the elements to form a new style which has been appropriated by musicians all over the world.

valley of fire begins with “sing” an original composition with vocals by eva salens (inca ore) recorded in charlottesville virginia, written in collaboration with a local street preacher, the song addresses the importance of the individual voice, rising above a rotten political structure ...lift up your voice and sing....!

track two, titled “valley of fire”, another jomf original composition, was recorded in leeds, england over the winter of 2006, with further production in portland by adam forkner.

track three, is a jomf arrangement of a beach boys song called “the tree” from their lonesome and wasted record, “surf’s up”. also recorded in leeds england, in the living room of lauren naylor, with further production in portland by adam forkner. it is an incredibly dark and minimal arrangement of the song, with an awesome vocal contribution from forkner.

side two is a side long composition titled “we are” with vocals by eva salens and tom greenwood, and in typical jomf style, takes the listener on a lysergic ride through the misty atmosphere...

valley of fire picks up on the trail of flags of the sacred harp, and wanders down a similar path, adding elements of krautrock, and classic west-coast american production to create an incredible, original album.

the cover of valley of fire is an original watercolor painting by american artist jo jackson, who creates mystical paintings, and shows her work around the world.
