Stephen O'Malley on stage with Sunn O))) and Boris (more by Greg Cristman)
sunn O)))

"Sunn O))) is on a break. We've been so for about a year now. We did a lot from 2007 to last year. Five tours supporting the album, a hundred shows in a single year I think, which is a lot. We don't really want to become a touring band. Greg said something really funny about it once: 'We're not gonna turn into High on Fire!'. Sunn O))) focuses on irregularity, so when you're taking the irregularity from it, you're kind of sabotaging it. But we're curating a line-up in April at Roadburn festival in Holland, though. We've got Winter playing, Keiji Haino, Corrosion of Conformity, Trap Them, and a bunch of death metal bands. It's going to be amazing, actually, a real mix of old and new acts. We'll be playing too, of course." - Stephen O'Malley:
The above quote comes from a recent interview with Stephen O'Malley done by The Quietus. And while O'Malley doesn't have any current US dates with sunn O))), he DOES have solo dates scheduled including one in Pennsylvania and one on May 14th at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn.

The NYC show is the third night of "the final" Table of The Elements Festival where Stephen will share a bill with Jonathan Kane's February, Helen Money, and Igor Cubrilovic. Stephen describes his solo set as "Primitive, minimal & loud guitar." Mission of Burma's Roger Miller also told us earlier this year that his M2 project would be playing the same fest. Stay tuned for more details (the venue is currently not listing it yet).

Stephen O'Malley recently dropped an LP as part of Aethenor, his project with Daniel O'Sullivan (Ulver, Mothlite, Guapo), Kristoffer Rygg (Ulver) and Steve Noble (N.E.W., Company, etc.). Stream portions of En Form For Bla on the Midheaven distro site.

What is this douchenozzle spam I'm seeing here?

I don't know 12:22pm but I'm sick of this doom metal garbage.

So don't listen to it. Or read about it. Or don't you have free will.

Is this "Captain" O'Malley as referenced by Cypress Hill???

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2011 12:55 PM

So wait, all I have to do is buy a guitar and play 2 notes really slow (because slow = evil)and all the hipster metal kids will come see me play and think it's genius? And then the room will smell like balls because only stinky dudes like bands like this?

SIGN ME UP!!!!

You're an idiot 12:58

You have to have a beard too

Beards compliment slow evil drone jams like boys in jeggings compliment (insert flavor-of-the-month Brooklyn indie band here).

Love people bashing a particular brand of music, as if they dont have the power to avoid it. Yay petty youngsters!~

12:05 was talking about some other post where some guy was like these are my 4 fave bands (Sunn being one of them) and saying they rock. Then some other dude was like Sunn don't "rock", and then some other dude is all "My name is Tom and I work at the bar at Brooklyn Bowl and I'm'a beat you up for saying Sunn don't rock" and called him the p word. This went on for a while. So now that we're all on the same page...

...and yes, I read way too much of this crap. But I can't stop myself. It's like a bottomless bowl of hummus.

I think it's more of a cloak, 1:52.

I think The Hummus Mehs finally broke up. Anybody wanna start a doom band named Cloak?

We could spell it:

'chumsley', 'sweetheart', 'sister', 'son' - Tom, you're way confused and full of crap. where were you last night?

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2011 2:37 PM

^^ where I always am, chicken hawk. where were you? no wait, let me spare you the pussy ass excuse -- you were so sad over Liz Taylor that you and the girls went out to karaoke at the Stonewall to commiserate. It's OK, at least that gerbil got another day to live.

Hey does anyone know how to get tickets to the Table Of The Elements thing? No info on the venue site. I guess we'll hear more when the details become available?

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2011 3:49 PM

Travis Bean guitars, used by Efrim Manuck of Godspeed You Black Emperor

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2011 4:00 PM

even with all those technical difficulties, that Sunn/Boris show was pretty amazing

Posted by Anonymous | March 24, 2011 4:52 PM

I've got a choice collection of Table of the Elements seven inches from the nineties. I'll sell the lot for $1,000.

Posted by Regular reader | March 25, 2011 12:00 AM

DUNKACCIN O))) it is. 2:33 and 2:09, I'll see you this weekend at UltraSound.
