Restocked. Vi Är Alla Guds Slavar is the latest missive from the long-running duo pairing of Mats Gustafsson (The Thing, Peter Brötzmann Chicago Tentet, etc.) and Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth, Chelsea Light Moving, Dream/Aktion Unit, etc.). The recordings presented here are continuous excerpts taken from the heavyweight, high-volume duo sets that topped off each night of their two-day residency at Café OTO in September 2012. Mats mostly plays a selection of amplified table-top electronics as well as some knotty soprano saxophone at the beginning of the second side, while Thurston offers a fine example of the kind of liminal intensity he is capable of generating from his guitar, complete with the low-frequency/octave-doubling dive-bombs that have had us replace the speakers in our Fender Twin twice since he relocated to London in 2013. The title Vi Är Alla Guds Slavar translates as "We Are All Slaves Under God," and is taken from the painting by Edward Jarvis that also serves as the three-color screenprint for the LP sleeve. Printing by Patrick Wells at Heavyrock on archival quality card stock. Mixed by Robert Harder. Mastered by Andreas "Lupo" Lubich @ Calyx. Pressed on high-quality 180 gram vinyl at Record Industry in The Netherlands. First pressing of 1,000 copies.
