Robert Millis: April 10, 2015 Union Pool – FLAC/MP3/Streaming

June 12, 2015

Robert Millis

Robert Millis may be best-known as a founding member of the long-running, experimental Climax Golden Twins and for his work with Sublime Frequencies, as a compiler and obsessive hunter of long-forgotten 78s from around the globe. At least, that was my familiarity with him prior to his set at Union Pool a couple months back, opening for friend and fellow seeker of the obscure, Sir Richard Bishop (his set posted here). Here, in solo mode, Millis’ set is true to the multivalence of his musical pursuits. It’s a combination of folk, spoken word, improvisation, drone, and noise. Something for everyone here: acoustic and electric guitar narratives “Notes on a Scandal” and “Pretty Polly”; the guitar drone piece, “The Demise of the Progressive Lens Routine” (referring to some earlier banter); and the haunting set closer, “Sign of Judgement.”

I recorded this set with the AKGs clamped to the balcony and a board feed from Union Pool FOH, Leah. The sound is excellent. Enjoy!
