Plain and simple, if you go to an Akron/Family concert and do not have fun, you just don't like music.  Akron/Family are this year's "it" band from Young God Records and they've bloody earned it: they have been touring non-stop since April of this year (2005).

The Eye finally caught up with them on their third time through this year and this time was easily their best show ever.  We sat down with Miles and Dana for some quality time talking about their music, working with Michael Gira, and crowd surfing, amongst other things.

Once again a special thanks go out to Stacie of The Critique of Pure Reason who has a knack for picking some of the best shows to produce that ever come to town.

cover imageI have long felt that the best possible thing that could happen for Bryn Jones' legacy would be for someone to brutally pare down his out-of-control discography to just the essentials, but I am tragically powerless to stop the tide of fresh dispatches from his seemingly infinite backlog of unreleased material.  This latest pair of albums in Staalplaat's archive series are predictably a mixed bag, but the album of almost entirely unheard material (Al Jar Zia Audio) is dramatically better than the previously released (but hard-to-get) Satyajit Eye.  That is both tantalizing and exasperating, as it guarantees that there will be many more albums to come and that Muslimgauze fans will be sifting through them in (financially ruinous) search of scattered gems for years.
