All Ya Needs That Negrocity

All Ya Needs That Negrocity

Now enter­ing our sec­ond decade, Burnt Sug­ar The Arkestra Cham­ber con­tin­ues an obses­sive dri­ve to bring Franken­stein back to musi­cal hybridity–brutally graft­ing and re-charg­ing funkys­tanknasty old­er trib­al forms with present-day post-soul ener­gies while leav­ing all man­ner of wires, lesions, sutures, scars and micro­sur­gi­cal fil­i­gree loose, open and lubri­cious in the bloody bar­gain.

More Than Posthuman - Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion

More Than Posthuman — Rise of the Mojosexual Cotillion

Our ver­sion of what R and B might sound like today if live bands hadn’t been derailed by sam­pling tech­nol­o­gy in the Black com­mu­ni­ty some­where around 1977.
We’ve got all the freeform rag­ing horns and gui­tars of our pre­vi­ous albums only com­po­si­tion­al­ly com­pressed into these groove­vi­cious post-every­thang song forms.

Blood on the Leaf

Blood on the Leaf

Back in the sum­mer of 1999 Greg Tate gath­ered a crew of eight musi­cians to flesh out an idea he had for a new type of band, to per­form a new type of music. Those ses­sions and the fol­low­ing jams at Shar­iff Simmon’s throw­downs in the base­ment of CBG­Bs led to this record­ing.
