Joeboy in Rotterdam/San Francisco

I was first acquainted with this work about 20 years ago when some friend handed me a tape with what i thought then was a Tuxedomoon project Joeboy in Rotterdam/San Francisco.

That was the time when we were all trying to find something shockingly inspired and inspiring, a new definition of sound. Myself, being an academic world product, felt so tired with the insipidity of certain projects like The Whitehouse or the Satanic Sunction and generally such things that were incoherent and flashy just due to lack of form.

Joeboy was none of the above. In one sentence: A bursting piece of lyricism by Steven Brown embedded in a brilliantly constructed vacuum of tape guitar noise by Peter Principle.

Twenty five years have passed since this release and i haven't heard anything as original and moving as this piece, surviving itself over thousands of auditions well there's maybe another piece i can think of Alban Berg's Woyzzeck.

Two years ago i was teaching 20th century music, from Schoenberg to Xenakis, it somehow occured to me to refer to this lost tape, saying that i've listened to a piece of music done in the eighties which is actually to contemporary music what Schoenberg was to Irving Berlin.

In the age of technology, i did a search online and i finally found the one responsible for this album.

If some of you feel like examining whether the music you listen to, is neoteric, then get hold of Joeboy, to reconsider your thesis on modernism.

Best Wishes
