The Pizz RIP

Pizz_JG_GCanyonIt is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Thirlwell collaborator and friend, pioneering lowbrow artist The Pizz. Thirlwell and Pizz made two records together under the name Garage Monsters and they collaborated on a couple of comics. He created the artwork for the Steroid Maximus album Quilombo! and for a compilation JGT put together for Big Cat Records called Mesomorph Enduros.

The Pizz bio in his own words : “It’s been the definitive long and strange trip from hashing out those notebook masterpieces in the back corner of the classroom to rightfully assuming the title of Lord of Lowbrow. From doing Rat Fink comix for the legendary Big Daddy Roth hisowndamnself, transforming the lowly skateboard deck into an artistic canvas in ways unforeseen, splashing flash on the walls of tattoo shops the world over,Steroid-LPfront delighting the kiddies and authorities alike with a set of trading cards featuring your favorite mass-murderers, burrowing into record collections around the globe via Sympathy For The Record Industry cover art, conquering the realm of canvas and paint, packing’em in for shows at the world HQ of lowbrow art galleries, La Luz De Jesus in Los Angeles, no less than 6 times, to foisting his tome Atavistic Avatar upon the masses, the fuzzy-chinned one has been quite the industrious vermin gnawing at the cheese of established convention.”

JG said, “He was a solid, brash, generous guy. A stone cold beatnik, hilarious and a cartoon come to life.” Rest in peace.

JGT's Split 7" single with Teho Teardo

Santarcangelo is a split single between JG Thirlwell and Italian musician/composer Teho Teardo, It documents separate sound installations they did at the Santarcangelo festival in Italy a couple of years back. Released on Teardo’s Specula label, it is currently exclusively available from his website.  The pressing is limited to 500 copies, one hundred of which are on blue vinyl.

Thirlwell’s piece on the single, entitled Ecclesiophobia, is a recording distilled down to six minutes from a three hour installation piece. This involved a bottle of water  dripping onto a bass drum head through an intravenous attachment, which reflected ripples throughout a vaulted subterranean chamber and triggered a low frequency which resonated in another room. This was accompanied by a live manipulation of field recordings of church bells from the medieval town, along with other compositional elements, into a four channel installation.
