thefourohfive published this video of a live show of TDB at Salon Des Amateurs in Duesseldorf along with an Interview Nic Glover conducted with Flo who seemed to set the tone by stating his urge to rather go to the lake although reportedly quite enjoying answering the questions! 

The video was shot and cut by no other than children-bicycle-ueber-god Markus Wilke, whom we owe eternal gratitude and supply of sweets!!!

FATCAT announced TDB split release

 Hiya!

fatcatsplit22


Fatcat just announced the release of a new installment of their split series 12”, which features one side by Ensemble Skalectrik and one by us. It is available as preorder on fatcat and partly as free download on XLR8R, nice ne?

The wire features it in it’s latest podcast and philip sherburne writes about our half on spin :

The Durian Brothers are up to their usual tricks on the latest EP in FatCat’s split series — which is to say, some very unusual tricks indeed. The members of the Düsseldorf trio use sequencer, effects, and prepared turntables (at least one member is also a part of Institut Für Feinmotorik, a group that sources all its sounds from “empty” turntables prepared with rubber bands, paper clips, etc.) to sculpt wild, polyrhythmic fantasias. There’s less of the thumping kalimba that used to give their music its resemblance to a dubbier, freakier Konono No. 1, but “Unterirdisch” still looks to Africa for inspiration, with faint echoes of highlife and even Kenyan “dry” guitar. “Angstbirne” whirls like a twister through North African and Middle Eastern tones, and “Staatsqualle” finds them at their most abstracted, with scratchy, loping grooves underpinning misty, tremulous drones.

which we consider flattering!

The first track on the durian-smelly side sounds like this:

10/14(金) 大阪 - Noon  DJ TUTTLE YO-HEY NAOROCK、IIDA、OTSUKA KENJI、DJ YOHEI、タムタムカフェ (for the food), and some other very very nice people!!!
