Marlon Williams Amoeba Green Room Sessions

New Zealand singer/songwriter Marlon Williams swung by Amoeba Hollywood recently for cool Green Room Session with his backing band The Yarra Benders, comprised of Gus Agars, Dave Khan, and Ben Woolley. The set starts with the darkly romantic "Vampire Again," a jangly, indie croon that builds to a shoegaze-y, fuzzy freak out. Next up is the Misfits/Damned horror-pop, by way of Johnny Marr, "Party Boy," an uptempo, punchy dance rocker from his latest LP release, Make Way For Love, which is available now via Dead Oceans.

Williams is currently touring Australia and Europe.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Necrobutcher of Mayhem

Necrobutcher of Mayhem What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

What does black metal legend Jørn "Necrobutcher" Stubberud go shopping for when he's at Amoeba San Francisco? The Mayhem bassist proved to have ecclectic tastes as he shopped before his in-store signing of his book, The Death Archives: Mayhem 1984-94, grabbing records like INXS' KickBringing up singer Michael Hutchence's unexpected death, Necrobutcher told us, "It's a different thing before and after the artist dies." 

Mayhem De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive

Mayhem are no strangers to death, as not only did early singer Pelle “Dead” Ohlin take his own life in 1991, but Mayhem's bass player at the time, Varg "Count Grishnackh" Vikernes aka Burzum, murdered founding member Øystein “Euronymous” Aarseth in 1993.

Necrobutcher is now the only remaining original member of Mayhem. As one of the founders of the band, he served as Mayhem's bassist from 1984-1991 and contributed to the 1987 Deathcrush EP. After the tragedies that struck the band between '91-'93, Necrobutcher reformed Mayhem in 1995, with a new lineup. His next studio release with the band was 1998's Wolf's Lair Abyss EP. He has since appeared on Mayhem's Grand Declaration of War (2000), Chimera (2004), Ordo ad Chao (2007), Esoteric Warfare (2014) and A Season in Blasphemy (2016). Live recordings include Live in Leipzig (1993), Dawn of the Black Hearts (1995), Mediolanum Capta Est (1999), Live in Marseille (2001), Live in Zeitz (2016), and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas Alive (2016). Necrobutcher has also performed with L.E.G.O., Kvikksølvguttene, Bloodthorn, and Checker Patrol.

New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with King Britt

Posted by Amoebite, May 30, 2018 02:37pm | Post a Comment

King Britt Amoeba What's In My Bag?

Philadelphia DJ, composer, and producer King Britt went digging for records to sample at Amoeba Hollywood and shared his discoveries in our newest What's In My Bag? episode. Not only did he find some unusual records like the Dog Training In Your Home LP (above), but he picked up some of his favorite releases, including a book by Cosey Fanni Tutti and Talk Talk's fourth album Spirit of Eden. Britt had lots of great insight into his eclectic picks, which made for a fun, interesting, and educational video.

King Britt is an American DJ and producer whose work fuses elements of house, downtempo, and acid jazz. While attending Temple University in the early '90s, he began producing his own tracks and met Ishmael Butler (aka Butterfly) of Digable Planets. King Britt would go on to join Digable Planets on tour. He and collaborator Josh Wink started the label Ovum Recordings in 1994. Their first release was the Supernatural LP, which featured the joint talents of King Britt and Ursula Rucker.

Fhloston Paradigm LiveIn '98, King Britt turned to neo-soul, releasing When The Funk Hits the Fan under the moniker Sylk130. He followed this LP with 2001's Sylk130 Re-Member's Only, with guest appearances from Alison Moyet, Martin Fry (ABC), Kathy Sledge, Grover Washington Jr, and De La Soul. A couple of years later, King Britt put out Adventures in Lo-Fi, which featured underground hip-hop heavy hitters like Madlib (as Quasimoto), and again, De La Soul. In 2005, he released King Britt Presents: Sister Gertrude Morgan, a reworking of the Depression era outsider gospel artist's recordings. Ever prolific, King Britt released a series of works under the name Fhloston Paradigm for Hyperdub throughout the mid-2010s. He continued this project in 2017 with the release of After... and most recently with Live On Star's End in January 2018.
