Master Musicians of Bukkake @ Issue Project Room
Master Musicians of Bukkake

Much like its inspiration, the Pan-devoted, beatnik-adored Master Musicians of Joujouka, the floating infinity conjured by the Master Musicians of Bukkake draws on a tradition that echoes across millennia. Around in various formations since 2003, the Seattle entity has coalesced into a seven-piece in time for its first East Coast performance, headlining a marathon tribute to avant-everything label Important Records in the Issue Project Room courtyard. MMoB's collaborative web includes psych-trance-ritual ecstatics from Earth, Sun City Girls and the free-improv world, which makes each new project a mutable feast of electronic drones, Buddhist temple bells, gamelan breakdowns, fuzz-box meditations, and innovations like "Rag-Dun Tibetan trumpet" and "leprosy synth." -[Time Out]
Despite the rain and subsequent relocation indoors, Important Records strutted like a peacock at Issue Project Room, showing off their roster with performances by headliner The Master Musicians of Bukkake, as well as Cave, Chord, Helena Espvall & Fursaxa, Kouhei Matsunaga, New Monuments, Duane Pitre, and Diane Cluck (no Ocean, unfortunately)).

This looks boring as shit. Did anyone who wasn't playing attend?

@10:47AM-
there were tons of musicians in attendance in the sizable crowd and many of the members of the bands who played are in other better known bands. The day was excellent musically and you missed it while drowning in your ignorance...

Wow, if Pitchfork had covered this I would have known about it.

Speaking of veggies, anyone out there drinking unpasteurized milk? I heard it's better for you.

This was epic. Fuck you if you didn't go.

MMOB layed it down.
However, if you're into landlocked 20-somethings on reverb jamming about surfing this may not have been the right event for you. Perhaps someday you can graduate to music like this.

MMOB, kouhei matsunaga and cave rocked. Worth going for them alone.
