pro et contra / ST 20 MAY, 2018 ON SALE

これは単なるカヴァー集ではない!そして「音楽」ましてや「芸術」でもない!「転用」ユニットpro et contra プロとコントラの1st album。本年2月23日の収録から時を置かず急遽発売。
北から北、北から来た、城から城、北から来ます…
今回から関西支部長Nasca Car、非常階段の中屋浩市を正式メンバーに迎え、カラマーゾフの兄弟達の狂演が繰り広げられる。イツロウのサンプリングリズムを中核に、中屋浩市のテルミン&シンセサイザーが渦巻き、そして「街宣車の運転手」と自ら言い放つルイス稲毛のベースがしっかりとボトムを支える。その上、なんと福岡林嗣が楽器を持たずハンドマイクとシンバルのみでポエトリーリーディングを行う。
手術台の上でミシンと蝙蝠傘が出会ってから約一世紀半、石畳の下に砂浜を感じたパリの祝祭から丁度半世紀。
延々と反復するリズムに言語実験を積み重ね、時に三人同時に交錯する言葉と叫びは、相変わらず易々と自動運動する資本機械に簒奪され続ける現代の「音楽」「芸術」を丸裸にし、強烈に問い直す。
二十一世紀のパンクロック、或は振動する詩の呼吸によって繋がれる「音響機械」に貴方も接続せよ!

This is not just a collection of covers. Neither is it "music" or "art". This is the first album from the détournement unit pro et contra. Recorded on February 23 this year and now being rush-released.
From the north to the north, gifts from the North, castle to castle, flying down from the north...
For our four Brothers Karamazov lunatic performance this time, we are joined by Koichi Nakaya, of Kansai favourites Nasca Car and Hijokaidan. Itsuro's sampled rhythms create the still eye around which Nakaya's theremin and synth cyclones whirl and turn. Meanwhile Louis Inage, who dares to drive part-time for right-wing lunatics and electioneering politicians as they pollute Japanese streets with amplified rhetoric, brings the most solid of low-end bass. Over all of that hot mess, Fukuoka Rinji, armed just a handheld mic and a cymbal, declaims his poetry.
Nearly 150 years after that chance meeting on an operating table of a sewing machine and an umbrella, and exactly 50 years since that Paris festival where we felt a sandy beach hidden beneath its paving slabs.
Rhythms locked into a circle of repetition, layered experiments with language, with the occasional simultaneous shouted phrase. These are the means we choose to strip bare contemporary "music" and "art" that continue their eternal usurpation by the smoothly self-driving machines of capitalism, to loudly challenge this reality.
Twenty-first century punk rock. Let us connect you to an acoustic machine, one driven by the respiration of poetic oscillation.
