SURPRISE: there will be a Black To Comm / Le Révélateur / No UFO's European tour in April and May this year. We'll be hitting a number of cities together and there will be some individual shows as well. Full details will be posted soon. In the meantime, here's the poster for the Paris show:
Shortly before the tour, No UFO's will be playing at the Skylight in Vancouver along with connect_icut, Waters and Stefana Fratila (April 10th). The homie Secret Pyramid will be spinning rap records all night. Please come by.
No UFO's also upped a couple recent ruffs to Soundcloud. You can stream them here.
In two weeks..
Very likely the last West Coast NU show for the foreseeable future.
Out to all the Montreal and Wpg heads that made the August trip a blast, and special thanks to Geoff Mullen for coming up to play.
There are a few No UFO's shows to announce:
Monday August 25 - No UFO's, Chris Bryan, Greenhouse, Crabskull at the Windsor Hotel (Winnipeg, Canada)
Thursday August 28 - No UFO's, Geoff Mullen, Jean-Sebastian Truchy, Bataille Solaire at La Vitrola (Montreal, Canada)
There's also a date at The Remington (Van.) in the works for late September. More details soon.
The digital versions of NU 005 + 006 are now available via Midheaven, Boomkat, etc. The digital release of MPC Tracks Vol. II comes with three ill remixes by NU homies Flørist, Best Available Technology and AnD.
Digital versions have been pushed back a bit but will be available soon.
In other news, NU005 and NU006 are currently at the plant and will be available some time between tomorrow and 2015. Sorry but at the moment it's impossible to pin it down any closer than that. We'll keep you posted. Perhaps this will tide you over.
Late ups to New Forms Festival for doing it right in September.
also: NU005 + 006 are still on tap and should be available by summer.
No UFO's interview and mix for Dummy Mag featuring all unreleased material. NU005 and NU006 will be available in the next few months. More news to follow.
If you're in Vancouver, Barn Owl are playing VIVO Media Arts Saturday Nov. 10 with Secret Pyramid and No UFO's. It's an early show, doors at 8:30, over by midnight.Full details here.
Quick update: MPC Tracks is now available digitally via Bleep as well. The first round of physical copies are nearly gone from the source but will be hitting distributors soon. There will be a small second run shortly.
It appears that it's now quicker and easier to press vinyl than get some tapes made. In any case, yes, the Cloudface and No UFO's cassettes really do exist and are moving swiftly. Boomkat and Revolver already have the digital versions for sale and Mimaroglu, Tomentosa and others will have physical copies shortly.
After numerous delays, the No UFO's "MPC Tracks Vol. I" and Cloudface "Wyre Drive" cassettes are at the plant and will be available in April. Shortly after that, NU005 and possibly 006 will be available, but more on that later.
Cloudface did a great live studio session for the good folks at Leisure. You can check it out here. For those in Vancouver, he'll be playing at Unit/Pitt Gallery with Plays:Four and The Aquarian Foundation March 31st.
Brief update: the No UFO's "Soft Coast" CS will be released as an Lp by Spectrum Spools / Editions Mego Dec. 20. It's a straight reissue aside from a slight remix and then proper mastering by the wonderful Dubplates & Mastering in Berlin. Full details and preorder info here.
For North Americans looking for the Mind Controls The Flood 12", Tomentosa has a handful on the way. Hit them up.
The No UFO's "Mind Controls The Flood" 12" is officially out via London's Public Information. You can stream here. 300 copies, no repress, so don't hesitate to cop. EDIT: it's already SOLD OUT from the label but available here, here, here, here and here in North America.
There will also be a vinyl edition of the "Soft Coast" CS around the end of the year. More details will follow.
As far as Nice Up, we're very pleased to be releasing a Cloudface CS (NU004) with the long-delayed No UFO's "MPC Tracks Vol. I" CS (NU003) around the end of the year. Both EPs are beat-heavy, all-hardware productions. #smokerstechno
