Gustafsson, Mats / Wendy Gondeln  / Wolfgang Voigt / Martin Siewert: The Shithole Country & Boogie B (Corbett vs. Dempsey)

A unique album blurring acoustic recordings from saxophonist Mats Gustafsson with the electronic machinations and rhythms of Wendy Gondeln, aka Albert Oehlen, a German experimental electronic artist, the two inviting Martin Siewert for additional guitar on two tracks, and Wolfgang Voight to remix two tracks; funky, unpredictable, amusing, and seductively tantalizing.

Artist Biographies:

"Wendy Gondeln aka. Albert Oehlen, born 1954 in Krefeld, Germany; lives in Gais, Switzerland

1977-1981: Degree at the Hochschule für bildende Künste (University of Fine Arts) in Hamburg under Claus Böhmler and Sigmar Polke

2000-2009: Professor at the Kunstakademie (Arts Academy) Düsseldorf

2015: Honorary doctorate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Oehlen activated the artist name Wendy Gondeln-a witty ambiguous reference to Nicolas Roeg's horror film classic Don't Look Now (1973), whose German title is Wenn die Gondeln Trauer tragen-for the first time in 1999 for the remix attempt Rectangle Rec Recycled. After a break, he bounced back in 2014 with the record Fracking, which appeared on the Cologne label Magazine and was made in collaboration with resident techno and electronic masters like Wolfgang Voigt and Jens Uwe Beyer. Fracking with Wolfgang, a "stomper" based on scraping violin and cloudy, timid organ sounds, formed the blueprint for a whole collection of arrangements (for instance, Voigt, with whom Oehlen did the installation Baum 3 in 2015). The video Fracking on a Saturday, produced for the exhibition Doppelleben, visualizes the track Fracking with Wolfgang in a classic Oehlen way: in sync with the music, the viewer sees monochrome colors fill a screen, alternating between magenta and its light green complement. Every possible afterimage endorses and fulfills itself. A circle closes and yet remains wide open, just as the term "fracking" suggests something between "freaking" and "fucking," or perhaps only refers to the controversial drilling method."

He started to produce under the moniker Mike Ink with the Acid EP The Dialogue being his first release. In 1993 Voigt, his brother Reinhard, Jörg Burger and Jürgen Paape founded the record store "Delirium" in Cologne, which later became Kompakt. In the same year he also started Profan. Later followed other imprints such as Kreisel 99 or Auftrieb.

Since the early 1990s he has released over 160 albums, along with dozens of EPs, box sets, singles and remixes, under more than 30 different monikers.

Siewert has been living in Vienna since the age of 10. He studied guitar at the University of Music and Performing Arts Graz. As a guitarist, he started his public performances in 1995. In his early performances, he played with Herwig Gradischnig, Freier Fall, Franz Hautzinger, and his band Duckbilled Platypus. With this band, he recorded two albums for the label Extraplatte.

On My Kingdom for a Lullably, he played with Christof Kurzmann, Axel Drner, and Billy Roisz, the video artist of Efzeg.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"In 2018, Mats Gustafsson provided raw saxophonic material for the elusive Wendy Gondeln, who sometimes applied a scalpel, sometimes a pneumatic drill, to rework, remix, reimagine all the Swede's squeaks, pops, blats, and tones. In some places, Gondeln adds violent violin to thicken the roux, making Ornette's fiddling seem like Yehudi Menuhin. Uncommon bedfellows: disjunct techno and improvised music. But the Shitholes make it work brilliantly, even inviting minimal techno pioneer and co- founder of Cologne's seminal Kompakt label Wolfgang Voigt to edit and remix two of the twisted tracks.

The CD's other guest star, engineer Martin Siewert, contributes guitar and lap top guitar to a couple of tracks. Not your usual any kind of music, The Shithole Country & Boogie Band bends genres and upends style. Spasmodic dance music or highly conceptual experimental sound art - it's a thin line Gondeln and Gustafsson tread on these eight diverse tracks, but an irresistibly fun one, too."-Corbett vs. Dempsey
