My friend Paul Gough, perhaps better known under his recording name Pimmon, is coming a long way from Sydney, Australia, for his second european tour after almost ten years. Here’s his tour schedule so far:
On most shows, Paul aka Pimmon will play with some other great artists, e.g.
- Jan Jelinek & Andrew Pekler as Ursula Bogner at Les Ateliers Claus in Brussels on 3 April 2012,
- Jürgen de Blode aka Köhn at (h)ear festival in Heerlen (NL) on 21 April 2012
- Robert Henke aka Monolake at Présences Électronique festival in Paris on Saturday, 31 March.
Paul’s Tour starts in England at a small village called Cragg Vale. The venue sounds as if it’s perfectly suited for his experimental, sometimes ambient, sometimes droney soundscapes: According to Hibernate Records it’s a Baptist church called St John’s in the Wildnerness.
Time to listen to some Pimmon music:
Vovul II (7″, Static Caravan, 1999)
(still one of my Pimmon all-time favs)
Yicco (from “The Oansome Orbit”, Room40, 2011)
(I’d love to also provide the track ‘frosty pink’ here, but neither do I find a source on the web to embed , nor do I own the (great) Snaps, Crackles, Pops album on Tigerbeat6. In case anybody has an advice please post it in the comments section.)
Besides being a nice chap and a musician, Paul is an audio engineer working for ABC Radio National in Sydney where he also hosts Quiet Space, a programme focussing on experimental electronic music from ambient to drones to blissful pop. More on that in one my next postings.
