[01/18/2017] Minibus Pimps in Paris!

In a change to the previously advertised ‘ Deathprod’ concert, we are very pleased to announce that John Paul Jones and Helge Sten will be performing together as ‘Minibus Pimps’ on 16th April as part of Presences Electroniques.

Minibus Pimps is a unique and unconventional UK/Norwegian collaboration featuring John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin's legendary multi-instrumentalist), and prolific electronic musician, improviser and producer Helge Sten (Deathprod, Supersilent), which has existed since its first performance in 2011.

Their debut album 'Cloud To Ground' contains seven tracks all recorded live at different venues, from London’s Café Oto to venues in Norway and Denmark. The secret of Minibus Pimps’ colossal sonic gas giants is their use of the Kyma computer system (created by Symbolic Sound). Instruments such as guitar, bass and violin are fed into the system and radically transformed by self-designed digital instruments and processors until their sources are barely recognisable.

I'm glad to see Jonesy is out there and he seems inspired, but this is extremely tedious for me to listen to.  It's cacophonous...no groove, nothing lyrical....  uninteresting harmonically. Sounds like cerebral wanking. The recent project names are dreadful too....Tres Chipotle Pimps .
