"each summer tamio shiraishi & sean meehan pair up for a series of outdoor concerts in new york city always in a different location, the concerts explore unwatched and unconsidered sites of the city. (this LP) is the first release of this summer tradition. 12" vinyl with a b-sided etching by knickerbocker." - sean meehan. Recorded underneath the West Side Highway at 59th Street, NYC, by Geoff Dugan, 21 july 2001. SEAN MEEHAN - "Current performances generally find Meehan playing only the snare drum in a manner that sheds conventional usage and reconstructs the conception and function of the instrument." Meehan has collaborated with Sachiko M, Mamoru Fujieda, Michihiro Sato, Edwin Torres, Muigel Algarin, Greg Kelley, Ami Yoshida, Taku Sugimoto, Toshimaru Nakamura, Tetzui Akiyama, Kiyoharu Kuwayama and many others. Additionally he has performed throughout North and South America, Asia and Eastern Europe. TAMIO SHIRAISHI - Shiraishi has been performing since the late 1970s, including playing drums and synthesizer in an early incarnation of Fushitsusha. His first released recordings, consisting of solo sax with broken drum machine, were included on the 1981 Aiyoku Jinmin Juji Gekijo compilation on Pinakotheca (who also released the first Keiji Haino LP). Hes currently living in NYC and occasionally collaborates with the No Neck Blues Band. GEOFF DUGAN - "Geoff Dugan has been performing, recording, and producing sonic environments since 1983. Recent projects include a binaural psychogeography recording and performance: "aberto/fechyado parque serralves" at the Serralves Foundation in Oporto and an audio psychogeographical report from New York performed at the 2002 Zeppelin Festival of Sound Art in Barcelona. Geoff runs the recording label GD Stereo that has released a series of compilation compact discs organized around psychogeography and the theory of the dérive among the various (the artists): The Architecture of the Incidental (1999) and Psychogeographical Dip (1997).

Artist: SHIRAISHI, TAMIO & SEAN MEEHAN
Title: Summer Concerts
Format: LP
Label: Old Gold/GD Stereo
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"180-gram vinyl LP edition of 510 in silkscreened jackets with art by Knickerbocker. A co-release with GD Stereo. When I first heard Tamio Shiraishi, I wanted to blow my eyes out. The opening burst of sheer overpowering SOUND of his sax on the "Our Lips Are Sealed" CD on Pure was all I needed to hear to know that I had to (a) get my hands on all his music, and (b) get a saxophone myself and have at it. Years later, here I am still trying, and there Shiraishi is cracking concrete and splitting bridges in half in New York City with his trusty horn. A follow up to the Fusetron one-sided 12", this 180 gram vinyl is a full length capturing two Summer concerts that Shiraishi and percussionist/artist/thinker/time traveler Sean Meehan put on every year in the Big Apple. I wasnt there, but Geoff Dugan was and recorded them for the rest of us poor saps. A third player should be given credit here, too, as the landscapes the duo chose for venues are just as much a part of the recording as the instruments played. The Manhattan Bridge and the municipal garage on 79th Street cradled, amplify, defy and deflect Shiraishi and Meehan. The passing traffic and trains make it a quartet. As for Meehan, I have no idea what hes doing. But its a damn fine thing whatever it is. Eat it up." - Marshall Avett, Old Gold. Highly Recommended!
