ocean drama
the tobacconists

in april 2009,  scott foust (idea fire company, xx committee, tart, and the swill radio label) was invited to screen his feature length movie here’s to love in europe, as well as staging his the four accomplishments performance.  the trip to europe also gave him the opportunity to join musical hands with frans de waard (beequeen, freiband, shifts, kapotte muziek), who had been on tour with idea fire company in 2005, resulting in the ifco album vital. as both scott and frans are heavy smokers, they settled upon the tobacconists as the name for their collaborative musical venture (ashtray temple was considered, then rejected).

scott and frans got to work in the extrapool studio, composing six pieces using a small keyboard, an echo machine, a radio, some pre-recorded tapes, a laptop, and some contact microphones. then, they took the road to perform in the netherlands, germany, belgium and the uk. at the end of their tour, they spent a week conducting proper studio recordings of all six pieces plus a seventh,  ’the dark secrets of dr. perati’, which was released as a 7 by plinkity plonk / swill radio. the six pieces will be released in 2011 as an lpsmoking is green, by hanson records / swill radio.

one piece from the forthcoming record, ocean drama, was deemed suitable for an extensive rework using the entire principle recording, made by foust on a boat. this extended version of ocean drama, now available as a stand-alone album from songs from under the floorboards, is more spacious, giving room to each individual sound with a great sense of the drama.  it is the most radiophonic piece that the tobacconists have created so far.

april 2010 release ; “studio compositions” from inarguably the greater boston area’s finest modified cello & cassette tape duo, as recorded a few years back by jesse kudler down in jamaica plain ...

having known & having seen these guys individually on the regular for a good decade+, but never having them in this formation, the music here is something of a surprise ; it’s neither vic’s austere minimalism punctuated with high bursts of sine-stone static, nor howie’s relentlessly churning tape-warble ... but in fact a more turn-based music, with each dovetailing through sequences of their respective sounds at a “composerlypace ... very nice stuff, and a great recording (i.e. a blend of the duo’s electronic tones & the actual acoustic presence of their instruments push-button interfaces) ...

floor3 vic rawlings & howard stelzer by my side; i am your’scdr

edition of 100 copies

this oddly punctuated album of studio compositions for modified cello, open-circuit electronics, cassette tapes, and other detritus was retrieved from intransitive’s climate-controlled vaults after carefully aging for more than six years. by my side came about at a time when vic rawlings and i were performing lots of duo concerts, and felt that we were pushing ourselves into some strange, exciting territory. we decided to capture what we were doing in a real studio, rather than simply record concerts in situ as best as we could… which at the time, would probably have meant putting one stereo mic in the room and hoping for the best. two days of improvisations in jesse kudler’s attic studio were sculpted and massaged over several intense days until this album emerged. and then… nothing happened. we’re not sure why. the subject of publishing this album would come up every now and then. every time i listened back to the music, i’d think, hm, this is pretty weird stuff. i should put it out. years later, the rapid fluctuations between narrative tease, passages of high-velocity throttle, and grotesque emptiness seem just as fresh and bafflingly exciting to us as they did when we recorded them.


rawlings and stelzer are two members of the large ensemble the bsc, along with their compatriots nmperign, mike bullock, chris cooper (fat worm of error, angst hase pfeffer nase), james coleman, and liz tonne. when he isn’t teaching rock guitar to kids in the suburbs, rawlings builds electronic instruments, makes a mess of a perfectly nice cello, and performs in the groups n.r.a. (with ricardo aria and tatsuya nakatani) and mawja (with mazen kerbaj and mike bullock). stelzer is tired of writing about himself in the third person, so today he won’t do it.
