Paper Cut Out + Charlottefield, Fri 29th July

Recommended Posts

PAPER CUT OUT - '..another gem of a band has burst out of the north east of late...'

Paper Cut Out are a trio of jazz infused maniacs. You could call their music post hardcore or post punk or something like that, but to be honest they don't fit easily into any of those categories. Some have compared them to Sweep the Leg Johnny without the sax, with a touch of Fugazi, but that's just a start. Everything is intricate, complex, fast and daring. The live set is blistering, a flash of fury, gone in the blink of an eye.

Bio taken from www.jealousrecords.com

CHARLOTTEFIELD are signed to www.jonsonfamily.com and hail from Brighton.

When all eyes, and ears, are glued to all things post-hardcore, what better time is there for true underground punk rock heroes to emerge? Welcome Charlottefield; wave goodbye to your false idols." Drowned In Sound

Live tracks available to download at www.charlottefield.com

Cellar 35, Friday 29th July, door and Tax t.b.c

from the recent Fatcat newsletter...

Since their debut 7", 'Picture Diary', released on FatCat in July 2002, Charlottefield have evolved. The ensuing two years have seen the band steadily honing a more forthright, truculent agenda. Released this month, the debut album, 'How Long Are You Staying', highlights a band at ease, at once expressive and clearly in control.

Recorded in Summer 2004, it clocks in at just under half an hour, and provides a neat introduction to the band. Informed by hardcore punk and post-punk experimentalism, Charlottefield's music is predominantly realised as a group entity, and this collective live dynamic fires the music and shapes the narrative. Heavily syncopated and deftly arranged, the album still manages to sound unapologetically English, recalling the likes of The Fall, Life Without Buildings et al, and a host of UK guitar bands - sharp, repetitive and immediate, yet guided by melody

Eclectic, continually evolving and as likely to draw inspiration from Erik Satie as they are Harry Pussy, lifestyle nevertheless plays as big a part as any musical reference points - namely an honest, emotionally charged response to simple, everyday concerns - financial instability, "education", short tempered public servants, crap job / no job, small town conservativism vs. big town pretension, the list goes on.

A visceral, instinctive live act, recent times have seen Charlottefield share the stage with the likes of Wolf Eyes, Animal Collective, USA is a Monster and Cat On Form. They also play a lot of non-venues, such as schools and houses.

They will embark on their first European tour this autumn. The vinyl version of the album is available now in strictly limited, screen-printed, very cool edition from Unlabel (http://www.unlabel.net). The CD version of the album will be released on Jonson Family Records (http://www.jonsonfamily.com) in the UK, and on FatCat for the rest of the world.

pretty rockin' review of Paper Cut Out if i may say so myself.....!

THE KILLING SPREE, YAKUZA, PAPER CUT OUT

ERRIGLE INN, BELFAST

(but lets cut to the chase..!.(shaz))

Paper Cut Out, then. An unknown package from Newcastle, England. Having only released two songs thus far on 7 via Jealous Records, this is a relatively new band which has burst onto the post-punk scene of late, forming from the ashes of Skip Day Toner. First song is a short sharp burst of spazzy, jazzy, off-kilter post-punk - immediately afterwards the crowd turn and look at each other as if to say whoa..what was that?!.

Its obviously something special. To say this band have stage presence would be doing them an injustice, these guys have venue presence. Constantly moving and intensely passionate. Theyre rocking out and theyre loving it. So are we. I cant think of a valid comparison for their sound: a little Sweep The Leg Johnny, a little Fugazi, a little Gang Of Four. Fast, tight, innovative. Astounding. If only itd lasted longer. Clocking off after around 25 minutes, this is still one of the most enjoyable sets Ive EVER seen.

hmm...goosebumps already!!

'Reasons are Red pull out of another gig to play another gig Shocker'

:nono::sleeping:

I personally would've loved to have played this show but we had a prior arrangement two nights before. To set the record straight WE did not pull out, rather the Arkade team (understandably) decided not to take the risk of putting us on when we had another gig so soon. Having just to been done out of 185 we didn't have by a promoter, we need to be careful about how much we can do at the moment.

On a lighter note, every one should attend because Papercutout rule!

Fair play... My wording was off! Maybe I was trying to suggest that Aberdeen needs more variety of, good, bands so that the usual suspects (the bands that think) get a break...

Charlottefield Album Review

How Long Are You Staying

by Charlottefield on Jonson Family

Release date: 18th July 2005

Violence is rife throughout this long overdue eight-track debut album (29 minutes start to stop), from the bloodied hands of the catwoman on the cover to the frantic screams of the very first song, 'Nine Tails'. It's an album of extremes, where nary a single guitar string is left unscathed by the recording process and every drum skin is sliced to shreds come a song's conclusion. While we're on the subject, a simple fact: Charlottefield possess the best drummer in Britain, maybe. Listen to this a few times and that'll become apparent; you'll want to sell a loved one to pay for lessons. Guitars? Nah: listen to this a few times and you'll begin imagining the innumerable ways in which they can be obliterated. Me? I choose incineration - no chance of a pretty corpse. Charlottefield's are certainly hellbent on self-destruction.

'Paper Dart' has been heard before on Jonson Family's Two Minutemen compilation, but sounds fantastically fresh in an album context. It's the final song to be characterised by those hellhound shrieks, the last song to sound something like an disfigured Fall/Jesus Lizard split seven-inch played at compact disc speed, as the climactic 'Weevils' is the greatest instrumental six-and-something rock and roll minutes never to have been written by Lightning Bolt. Again, the drumming is phenomenal to the extent of sometime disbelief. Charlottefield don't only deal in bombast though: as agitated as the guilty parties so obviously are, they nevertheless craft a kind of subtle splendour with understated mid-album effort 'How Long'. To some it'll come as relief akin to those first slivers of sunshine through a cloudy sky.

To another it'll comprise a hindrance, a moment's weakness not to be repeated. They'll skip it in time, tuning in only to the rage around the resplendence. They'll absorb this so that it echoes within their skull while fucking a former best friend's face in, submitting to the primal and the passionate. It'll infect their blood and corrupt their heart. It's the catalyst, the slipping from the knife's edge into blood-spilling chaos.

12" vinyl version of this album, with different artwork, is available from unlabel. There are only two hundred or so copies though, so be quick.
