秒読み段階!BITCH MAGNET 再結成!

BITCH MAGNETが今年末のAll Tomorrow’s Parties “Nightmare Before Christmas”で22年ぶりに再結成するというのはUSインディー、ポストロック・ファンにとっては激震ニュースでした。それも一時期、Jon FineがDon Caballeroで一緒にプレイしていたIan WilliamsのいるBattlesのキュレートの日に!

“Probably more than any other band, Bitch Magnet sent me
in the direction I took with the music I have tried to make.”
Ian Williams (Battles, Don Caballero)

“Bitch Magnet created this amazing equilibrium between
heaviness / prettiness and density / space. These juxtapositions
were explored by a ton of bands at the time, but Bitch Magnet wrote songs.”
Mac McCaughan (Superchunk, Merge Records co-ˇfounder)

“Searing post-ˇhardcore punctuated with bruised introspection
that stands a mile high above most of its kin. … Bitch Magnet anticipated
the emergence of what would become known as ‘post-ˇrock.’”
Mojo Magazine

日本ではEnvy,Monoなどをリリースしてることでもよく知られてる老舗Temporary ResidenceからJohn Congleton(Explosion in the Sky,St Vincent etc)がリマスターを手掛けた3枚組のリリース間近に迫ってきています。

Slint,Mogwai,Don Caballero,Battles,Superchunk,Rodan,June of 44,Sunn O)))などへ大きな影響を与えてきたオリジネーターの22年ぶりの復活はUSインディーの歴史を再確認する上でも非常に重要な出来事です!

Along with their contemporaries in Slint, in the years following their breakup,
Bitch Magnet has been recognized as a significant influence on generations of aggressive and musically complex bands, including Mogwai, Battles, Sunn O))), Rodan, Superchunk and June of 44.

Bitch Magnet will perform as the original lineup for a scarce few dates in the UK ,Europe and Asia till December to coincide with the release of the remastered antholgy.
