Guelph agit-dub provocateurs King Cobb Steelie’s Project Twinkle is getting a much deserved re-issue with a re-mastered and re-packaged version of the 1994 masterpiece hitting the street Tuesday October 30.
Produced by bassist and sound scientist Bill Laswell and originally released in Canada on the lunamoth label through EMI, Project Twinkle immediately solidified KCS’s reputation as one of Canada’s finest new bands.
Project Twinkle’s 10 tracks and 60 minutes of music are a true aural experience blending 80s hardcore influences with jazz/dub/ambient and electronica in stunning fashion. Laswell’s mix, with its huge bottom end and restless sonic exploration, stands the test of time, making Project Twinkle as contemporary today as it was in 1994.
A dub wise Mad Professor remix of “Italian Ufology Today” was unearthed and is added as a bonus track.
Why now? Pheromone’s proprietor Kim Cooke: “I have never stopped listening to this amazing record since its release and when I recently realized that it was out of print, it was a no brainer to bring it back via Pheromone. This is seminal, vital music that was way ahead of its time. Hear it, celebrate it.”
Also renowned for their sprawling live shows and outstanding musicianship, it’s only appropriate that King Cobb Steelie would celebrate the re-issue of Project Twinkle with an evening dedicated to it. On November 29 at The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto, the band will play Project Twinkle in its entirety beginning to end. Original guitarist/vocalist Kevan Byrne will join bassist Kevin Lynn, guitarists Al Okada and Geoff Walton, percussionist Michael Armstrong and drummer Robin Buckley in a night not to be missed.
Opening is the awesome Army Girls
and DJ Shit La Merde
Show starts early at 9pm, so don’t be late!
$10 in advance / $12 at the door
