Nihon Falcons – Korindie Bootlegs #16

[bandcamp width=350 height=350 album=4125716092 size=large bgcol=ffffff linkcol=0687f5 minimal=true]

Yay! We’re back and some jazz. I’ve totally just shaved off my summer beard, and I’m ready to tackle all that tasks to be tackled in this mid-fall season. It’s like the Super Bowl up in here, but for productivity, and with less grunting and slightly (ever so slightly) less homoerotic undertones.

I know what the people want. They want bootlegs. And carnival rides. I can provide the bootlegs. You can get your own carnival rides. I’m not Brazil.

Nihon Falcons

So, Nihon Falcons. Let’s get down to brass instruments. There are none. But they have a cello, some drums and a frankenbass. That’s better.

Faithful lookilisteners will have noticed Jonathon Jacobson of Tierpark, and formerly Nice Legs on drums, and Henry Demos, of Henry Demos, and currently Nice Legs on frankenbass. On the left however, with his brand new hashtag on this site is George Durham, from Monoban and a few other places. He also makes some mean meats.

That is not a euphemism for them forming a intercoursical threesome together. George actually smokes his own meats. That is not a euphemism for masturbation, either, which I cannot confirm or disavow. He makes like pastrami and pates. They’re excellent. When he has a barbecue, I always am the grill master so I can be by the goods when they’re perfectly done. That and so I can remember what it’s like to live again.

They’re good meats. They have not yet made me cry myself to sleep like the rest of my life choices.

George Durham – Cello

We don’t need to go into details about that. Or anything. It’s not like this site every talks about music. That would be ridiculous. I can say though, in the briefest of terms that this seems to be a good combination. Jon and Henry’s history and improv skills work well with the vibe of the cello subbing in for a real bass. Melodic. Oh yeah and Henry screams a lot. Harkens back to the olden days.

I still file my tax returns in green. Suck it bitches.

Jonathan Jacobson – Drums

I got a tax return, too. Like yesterday from 2012. It took the gubmint 3 years to tell me I was getting it. I’m not saying it’s a conspiracy, but I don’t see me getting no interest on my 170,000 won over the last fourish years. Or even like a sick pair of boots.

Henry has homemade bellbottoms. I enjoyed them, kinda like how I enjoy those cured meats. We should all get some meats. (I am not currently a paid advertiser for said sweet-delicious-yet-not-actually-sweetmeats-meats, but I’m hoping to sink the deal with this one. Sinking is when you win right?

Henry Demos – Vox, Frankenbass

I need a nap. I’m tired and my feet hurt. Get off my lawn.

Tierpark – Korindie Bootlegs #12

Tierpark widely known by Germans for being the German word for zoo. No one can dispute that. Tierparks are places where visitors can witness the heavily ordered stratification of German society, in which humans and even animals, must adhere to the strict boundaries of their placement in life. While to an outsider like yourself, this may seem to be a bit harsh or completely made up, I assure you that this is not the case. In fact, the nature of German zoos can be derived directly from the etymology of the word Tierpark, where tier means tier, or some sort of stratification, and park roughly translates to “place for the storage of accoutrements used in the containing and torturing of innocents for putting them in their rightful place.” My German is a little rusty, but I’m sure you’ve believed every word I’ve said so far.

Sehee Kim – Vocals, Guitar

After reading the above paragraph, you could say that the above is complete bullhornky which has nothing to do with the actual band Tierpark. Mayhaps they’re not some sort of musical sadomasochistic animalistic cult, where Sehee Kim forces everyone to live like zoo animals off stage in some sort of weird bedroom-cum-sty. Look, no one here at Korindie is saying that. That would indeed be ridiculous, and libelous. I’m just saying it’s more of a part-time hobby of theirs, and quite frankly, I’m really upset that no one gives Sehee Kim credit for her ability to be a new mother and lead a band while simultaneously continuing to maintain the world’s first and only prog rock BDSM dungeon.

So have you now learned the true meaning of Tierpark? Well, you’re wrong. It’s Christmas. The meaning of Tierpark is Christmas. You’ve all failed. You all get coal in your stockings this year. Like, your regular socks. Your feet will get all dirty. That is the punishment.

Jonathan Jacobson – Guitar

Whatever, look, I’ll give you a pass this time, just because you’ve somehow decided that reading this far was going to be beneficial to you for some reason? Right, back on topic. Tierpark.

Nathan Greenberg – Bass

They’re a band. They’re a band that I like, although I really only know two of the members well, namely Sehee, mentioned above, and Jon, who you may recognize from Visuals, and older Nice Legs joints. With other two, Nathan and Laurent, we do this awkward acknowledgement nod whenever I see them, which I’m not sure if awkward because one of them is vaguely European, or because I always get terrible photos of the other one because he’s always hiding in the shadows on the stage, or because I always flee back to my cave after every show. It’s a tough nut to crack.

Laurent Pereira – Drums

They play music. On Korindie, it has been established that we don’t talk about music. I don’t want to label anything, or be forced to describe anything in weird laboured terms like every other music blog. But, despite this, but I can tell you that their music is what I would refer to as “good.” I hope this label hasn’t ruined your listening experience. Go get the album you whingy bastards.

Whatever. Like, listen to the bootleg, then listen to their new album here. It’s excellent. Have you seen it? It’s like a triangle. It unfolds out into an eagle. Well, I mean you have to unfold it, and then do some origami shit to make it into an eagle, but I’m technically correct or something.
