"We are sad to announce that we have had to cancel our remaining American and Canadian shows due to ill health. Our other dates in Europe and Japan will be going ahead as planned. We will re-schedule the shows in 2009.

I [Martin] was taken into hospital last night almost immediately after the show at ATP. I've been having some problems with my pacemaker for the duration of the tour and it unfortunately culminated in me being sent to the emergency room. The doctors there initially thought i would have to have corrective surgery at a larger hospital nearer NYC but i have been given the all clear to travel home on the understanding that i go straight to my cardiologist on arrival back in Scotland.

Tbh, i'm really bummed about having to go home and feel for the folk who had bought tickets for our upcoming shows but i can honestly say it would be almost impossible for me to carry on at this point as my pacemaker has broken skin and the surrounding area has become infected.


Get well soon Martin. Did you rock too hard at ATP? It is quite possible.

Fuck Buttons were touring with Mogwai. No word on if the band will scramble to put together some dates or just head on home.

My Bloody Valentine

On my way back to stage one from Brian Jonestown Massacre, ATP staffers were passing out a specific type of earplug chosen by My Bloody Valentine for distribution at their performance. Dope. After much fanfare, and a loooot of stage set-up and waiting, My Bloody Valentine entered the stage to chants of "MBV!" around 12:40 AM (Sunday night, Monday morning).

One word. Devastating.

Harmonia @ ATP

Harmonia is a Krautrock supergroup from Germany. They formed as a collaboration between Michael Rother of Neu! and Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Möbius of Cluster and later included British ambient music artist Brian Eno. [Wikipedia]

Gemma Hayes

My Bloody Valentine chose Irish singer/songwriter Gemma Hayes to perform at ATP in upstate NY this past Sunday. Now she's is in NYC to play two shows. The first is tonight (9/22) at Mercury Lounge - it's the early show before Low (who also played ATP). The second is free at the Virgin Megastore on Tuesday. Her new album The Hollow of Morning is out September 30th via Second Motion Records.

My Bloody Valentine

My Bloody Valentine played their first US show in 16 years last night at ATP NY @ Kutscher's (9/21/08). It was also the final, headlining performance of a three day weekend full of musicians playing at the old resort in the Catskill Mountains - many of them chosen by MBV to play the festival. My Bloody Valentine's next shows are Monday and Tuesday night in NYC. Stay tuned for the setlist and more about this show, and the entire ATP day three. But for now, more pictures from MBV @ ATP, below...

British experimentalist Alexander Tucker kicked off ATP day two (9/20) with looping pedals and acoustic instruments (cello, guitar). A very interesting artist to start my day with and worth further investigation.

Next came ATP's own Apse and their triple guitar attack. They had some truly soaring moments.

Growing and their effects-laden noise drones sounded great on stage two, though sometimes I find it hard to watch a knob-twiddling live show.

Probably my biggest surprise of the day was The Drones who were urgent, angular, and punky. I was familiar with some of their work through a certain Vegan pal of mine. I will be familiar with more and won't miss them next time they make it to NYC (Philly, Richmond & DC have the chance over the next three days).

Shellac @ ATP NY

Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland will release his second solo album on November 18, a decade after his first solo outing hit stores.

"Happy," which will be issued on Weiland's own Softdrive label, boasts guest appearances from three members of No Doubt: bassist Tony Kanal, guitarist Tom Dumont and drummer Adrian Young. It was co-produced by Weiland and Doug Grean, with Steve Albini also engineering a handful of songs. [Billboard]

After Tortoise and Thurston Moore played, Built To Spill performed Perfect From Now On to close out the "Don't Look Back" portion of ATP in the Catskill Mountains on Friday (Sept 19)


Built to Spill inadvertently signaled the "all clear" to the soundman, Doug kinda shrugged and said "let's just go for it". Of course, that meant on stage technical issues plagued their set, but to the audience (and me), it had no outward effect on their performance, nor did it change the sheer emotional power behind the songs on Perfect From Now On. Great way to start the weekend, and I would say if you are a fan of the record and missed this show, catching them at Terminal 5 is a must. Hell, maybe I'll go.


After the show, the party came alive in the multiple lounges and especially The Deep End, a gawdy 70s-style disco with a DJ until closing time (6AM). With a view of the pool, it was only logical that a few people in The Deep End reportedly found their way into the pool after 6AM for a skinny-dip.

The rest of Friday's pictures below....

Part one HERE. Part two below...

Tortoise @ ATP NY

Friday night (sept 19) was the "Don't Look Back" night of the All Tomorrow's Parties festival at Kutscher's in upstate NY. That means bands on the bill played one of their older, well-regarded albums in its entirety.

Tortoise played Millions Now Living Will Never Die, sounding super tight and extremely impressive. Dueling xylophones were heavenly against the backdrop of synth/noise looping, and Doug McCombs definitely knows his way around a baritone guitar and bass.

Thurston Moore
thurston moore @ ATP NY

Thurston Moore was up next, and if you have ever seen Sonic Youth or happened to read our recent review of Thurston's solo show in MA, you know what to expect.... Thurston wailing on the guitar, hand sliding up and down the neck like he's jerking it off, and feedback squalls even for a record which I found to be relatively poppy. Joining him on stage was "the only remaining member of the Psychic Hearts" band, Steve Shelley.

"Do you realize this record was written in a day?" Thurston said somewhat incredulously. "Recorded that day and mixed that night." Yeah, we can't believe it either.

I cut the Thurston Moore set a tad early to catch the last 5 minutes or so of Eugene Mirman's set (I completely missed Joe DeRosa and Maria Bamford) followed by Patton Oswalt. The comedians were playing the second stage, more of a ballroom-conference room-y space adorned with odd crystal chandeliers and lots of chairs set up for the comedy set. It might be tough to see the bands there, I guess I'll find out Saturday.


The final recap from Friday, not to mention Saturday and Sunday, is on its way. Listen now on WFMU. Try and score a last-minute free ticket, Look at more pictures of Tortoise and Thurston below...

As many have pointed out, WFMU is streaming some of the ATP sets this weekend.

Zach & BB are up at Kutscher's this weekend for the first-ever NY All Tomorrow's Parties festival...

Patton Oswalt

"I feel like David Lynch would walk into this place and say 'This is perfect! Production designer, you're fired.'"

Leave it to Patton Oswalt to say exactly what I was thinking.

"I half expect to walk by a room and see a guy getting blown by somebody in a bear suit."

Kutscher's Country Club is an odd "resort"... a decaying, frozen-in-time artifact from the 60s with shag-carpeted walls, pale pink wall paper, musty smell, and brown water showers to prove it. But let's get real, no one came to Kutscher's for the surroundings.... It was for the sights, sounds, and overall vibe and in that respect, the location for the New York version of All Tommorrow's Parties delivers in spades.


Due to more traffic traffic than I anticipated, I ended up missing both Bardo Pond and Meat Puppets, sliding into Kutscher's slightly before Tortoise hit the main stage, the Stardust Room, on Friday (Sept 19, 2008).

The Stardust Room is circular, comparable in size to NYC's Nokia Theater and also tiered, presumably for dinner-shows. It's painted black and covered in stars and while it may have passed for "class" in the age of the beehive, in 2008, Stardust feels more like a rejected set from Star Trek. Where it counts though, the sound, I was definitely impressed, and from all viewpoints.

It seems like a lot of people are stuck with very-expensive, very-far-out-of-town tickets. I know at least two people who are pretty sure they're going to eat a pair.You could probably go to the sold out ATP Festival this weekdend for free, or almost free, if you try hard enough.

Mogwai @ Terminal 5, NYC - Sept 18, 2008 (soulblend)

"The pairing of venerable Scottish post-rockers Mogwai with Fuck Buttons, a knob-twiddling duo who weave subtle melodies through waves of tribal noise, is inspiring. Both groups make mostly instrumental soundscapes, but go about it in entirely different ways. Mogwai (pictured above) use traditional rock instruments; Fuck Buttons use Nintendo GameBoys, toy microphones, laptops, and whatever else seems to strike their fancy." [Washington City Paper]
The Mogwai / Fuck Buttons tour hit Terminal Five in NYC last night (Sept 18). Fuck Buttons play ATP NY on Saturday. Mogwai play the same upstate festival on Sunday.

Built to Spill, Thurston Moore, Tortoise, Meat Puppets and Bardo Pond play the sold out affair at a country club, TONIGHT (Sept 19). They're all playing full albums. Thurston practiced on Wednesday night in his hometown.

Brian Jonestown Massacre play a show in Brooklyn tonight. They play ATP on Sunday.

Lilys also play ATP on Sunday. They played the opening show at The Bell House in Brooklyn last night.

The Mogwai-scored Zidane hits select theaters on October 24th.

Thurston Moore

There are many sides to Thurston Moore and each are represented when he plays- or rather, shreds- his Fender Jazzmaster so hard you can barely catch your breath. Last night (September 19, 2008) he gave the crowd at the Pearl Street Nightclub, in his hometown of Northampton, Mass., the goofy, fun and relaxed Thurston.

I've seen him with Sonic Youth many times- in venerable venues like McCarren Park Pool, Central Park SummerStage and even the tiny Maxwell's in Hoboken. I've seen him play guitar noise in dingy Bushwick lofts and at the tavern at Hampshire College in Amherst. But it was last night that Thurston came alive as a human and not just a rock star.
