Review: Phill Niblock – Nothin To Look At Just A Record

01

—01. Rereleased on Superior Viaduct.

Words

Phill Niblock has long been one of the central protagonists of the NYC loft scene, holding concerts through his Experimental Intermedia label since 1968 and producing some of the richest and most splendid, long-form drone music in the nascent genre’s history. His first album, Nothin To Look At Just A Record, sources its sounds from recording continuous tones, in this case trombones, which are then densely layered. The product announces an idiosyncratic approach to creating music that would continue throughout his multi-decade career. Superior Viaduct's 2013 rerelease of his 1982 debut is sold out at the source, but copies can still be found of this great, early record from a real legend in the underground music world.

Architectural photographer Florian Holzherr is based in Munich but has done much of his work in the US for Donald Judd and James Turrell. Freunde von Freunden take us inside his garden studio, designed by architect Andreas Meck; the 44-year-old's minimal workspace is filled with natural light and USM furniture, both more than welcome in any studio.

01. Vat Dyed Hooded Sweatshirt.
02. Vargas Girl T-Shirt.

Words

The reproduction experts at The Real McCoy’s have released their latest collection and amidst the customary offerings in military and workwear, there are always a number of entirely new items added to the line-up. This season they run the gamut from a classic navy blue raincoat worn by the US Air Force in the 1950s to T-shirts bearing the pin-up artwork of Ernesto Vargas, famed for emblazoning the noses of numerous aircraft in WWII. These unique pieces are shown next to a few welcome variants of old favourites, such as a vat dyed hooded sweatshirt in three shades and the less common navy coloured Utility Trouser.

Tony Conrad: Doing the City / Urban Community Interventions

—01. Published by 80WSE Press.

Words

Known for his video work, and most notably the structuralist film The Flicker, as well as playing in the legendary group, The Theatre of Eternal Music, Tony Conrad is a truly enigmatic figure in the history of American contemporary art. I am a huge fan and was lucky enough to stumble upon his Doing the City show by chance when in New York in 2012, which featured his unique video, music and installation art. Surprisingly, this recently released book is the first monograph devoted to the under appreciated luminary to compile his work over the last 50 years.
