Mi-Gu
mi-gu

Tokyo experimentalists Mu-Gu, aka Yuko Araki and Hirotaka "Shimmy" Shimizu, who have both played in Cornelius Group, Yoko Ono's Plastic Ono Band, If By Yes, and Brother's Sister's Daughter (with Mike Watt), have three albums out since 2003, including their most recent, Pulling From Above, which came out on Ryuichi Sakamoto's label, Commons. Now they're compiling material from those three import releases for the album, Choose the Light, which will be out on October 2 via Sean Lennon's Chimera Music (who just put out the Yoko Ono, Thurston Moore, and Kim Gordon album this week).

Mi-Gu will be coming to NYC for a show on October 4 at Union Pool with Nels Cline's Eye Bone (aka Nels with Jim Black and Teddy Klausner). Admission for that show is $10 at the door. No advance tickets at the moment.

There are a bunch of other chances to catch Nels Cline in NYC in the upcoming months too, including Retrofret on October 6 in Brooklyn as a duo with Julian Lage (free/invite only), Zebulon on November 1 as a duo with Elliot Sharp, The Stone on December 5 as a member of Ben Goldberg's Unfold Ordinary Mind, and the previously discussed Medeski Martin & Wood show at The Blue Note on December 12.

A list of all Nels Clines dates and a video of Mi-Gu at Union Pool in 2010 with Sean Lennon and Yuka Honda are below.

Good thing for me I love the Ramones endlessly and I really enjoy the music of the Smiths, so I get out of this infantile anti-social behavior unscathed.
