In nearly 30 years of spending my time on the most useless endeavour known to mankind - writing about music - I've been lucky enough to meet and interview many of No Lyrics - Greg Malcolm - What Is It Keith?

heroes. My general interview archives are elsewhere. Internal Sunshine - Mr Sunshine - Garden. E.P sounds for parking wardens The piercing, probing twang of National Radio host Kim Hill gets a full audio lobotomy on the new album by Christchurch-based musician Greg Malcolm.

Paul Holmes looks the same in Christchurch as he does in Auckland, unfortunately. Q: Does humour belong in music? Most of the musicians I admire use humour.

People have a tendency to write off anything humorous as light and lacking in substance, when often the opposite is true. How often is the news non-existent until catalystic journalism makes it happen? The media should be held accountable in the same way that they constantly pull up artists and politicians. Is it offensive? Should our arts organisations be funding such stuff? A: The media are constantly pulling artists up for immoral or irresponsible behaviour.

Is it naive No Lyrics - Greg Malcolm - What Is It Keith? expect the media to demonstrate that often the artist is merely illuminating aspects of their environment that may have otherwise gone unnoticed? Most of the media-formed opinions on the 8 Poems - Dorothy Parker - One Perfect Rose were based on misinformation received from other media. Most people who commented on the song had not actually heard it.

Q: Are you a compulsive media voyeur, or does it only get your craw when it comes this close? It is something that I have no interest in, but what choice do we have? I prefer my reality to be what I consider important. Q: Why did you go to Germany, and end up recording your album there?

A: Having lived in-and-around Berlin in the early 90s, I knew it was the best place to live if I was interested in pursuing my avant garde music. My friends started an improvised music venue, which rapidly became the centre of interesting music in Berlin.

It was great. I could walk down three flights of stairs and see what I still consider to be some of the most exciting music of our time AND get free drinks. Berlin was also a great place to base ourselves for touring.

I was able to live off playing my music, and the extra time enabled more commitment and incentive to develop my art.

I came back to NZ because I got sick, and had no medical insurance or legal status in Germany. Q: Why obscure such beautiful music with all No Lyrics - Greg Malcolm - What Is It Keith? talking and silly carrying on? A: Which is more subversive: dumb teen angst, or a state of anarchy seen to be working?

A: I have performed my deadly serious Depresso Guitar programme several times. I find nothing funny about lying a guitar on my lap, sitting a mini-fan on it, and bowing it with a cello bow.

Yet people still laugh. Q: Are you influenced by any of these people? A: I have always listened to a lot of ethnic music, from Inuits to Romanian folk music. Check out the Tarak de Haidouk. Korean folk and Tangent music from the world of Islam. A: I thought I could make a cd that raises some concerns I have, has great music, an overall unifying concept, and is profoundly weird. It drives the ladies - and for that matter, the gentlemen - Christmas Must Be Tonight - Plácido Domingo*, Patricia Kaas, Alejandro Fernández, Vienna Symphony Or. Q: Is your music essentially free jazz, or free improv?

And is freedom just another Seviyorum Diyebilsem - Muazzez Abacı - Yaşamadım ki for nothing left to lose? A: I like free music, but it is only a small part of what I do.

I am thinking about becoming a parking warden so I can integrate my art fully into my daily life. A: Like the other musicians, they are entitled to free copies. Notes: This may all be too NZ-referential, but Greg Malcolm is an undersung New Zealand institution, and of interest because he's a genuine iconoclast. Very serious - and seriously excellent - with his guitar work, both in an avant-garde and more 'popular' incarnations, he's one No Lyrics - Greg Malcolm - What Is It Keith?

those daring souls who always manages to bite the hand that could potentially feed him. More recently than this piece, he has released an album on Corpus Hermeticum which has received high praise internationally.

    Jul 08,  · Greg Malcolm is one of those artists who plays in a league of his own.

    Oh, there’s a cutting Elton John pisstake in there somewhere, too. So, in the spirit of Malcolm’s original ode to the unfortunate Mr Plumley-Walker, we decided to engage in a little S&M (Steel & Malcolm) Q&A: Q: Greg, what relevance does ‘What Is It Keith?’ have to the average Metro reader? You come from Christchurch, for Pete’s sake!

    Jul 13,  · Christchurch guitarist Greg Malcolm is the embodiment of the word, and sadly it’s worked against him here. Globally, Malcolm is one of an elite tribe of musicians embodying an ethos promoted through The Wire magazine: one of freefalling, no-jazz improvisation.

    Jan 02,  · For Malcolm that’s no point at all, although he doesn’t seem to favour one of them. “ I like to be moved emotionally by music or sound. The sound of that pumice banging can trigger a strong emotional reaction, but I am also interested in the process.”.

    Every Day In May – Day 8: Greg Malcolm. Written by Gary Steel on May 8, What Is It Keith? (a line taken from a question Kim Hill posed to guest ‘culture expert’ Keith Stewart), thinks nothing of transposing Shadows-style guitar grooves with crazy, free jazz-influenced improvised sections. Oh, there’s a cutting Elton John.
