Some people recently prooved very low knowledge about modern music. So lets forget a second to think about the Near East and listen to the famous cooperation of Neurosis and Jarboe, live performing "Transcript of thougths of a 16-year-old pregnant girl that was raped by her father having a back-street abortion"
Nononono, not the effect of Jarboe in the Swan-case [absorbing the bands brutality and channel it onto a new lyric plain and her dominance that makes the sound look like a replica of Swans]. The news is that we now know that her permanent excuses like "Its Michael [Gira]. He has an interest in the subject of serial killers" in the case of killing children must be doubted. The whole story of that girl must be written new.
And having understood this simple thing, we can go back and understand how the two systems [Jarboe - Neurosis] can work together. Neurosis [see the "On the Hill"-example] creates a transcendental plain. Beats are giving you technical lessons how to breathe and to climb on your "own hill" [In my dreams I touch]. The Jarboe-connection was working the other way around. Neurosis is like sitting in front of the Jarboe-hill and she gives the advices what beat she now needs to express her very untranszendental thougths. I think that is the point that hurts: Nobody expected Neurosis to make music about their Mommies, a.s.o..
And a tip: Jarboe was not very lucky with the playlist. She has renumbered the playlist.
I say, it was a good try, but I hope that we will see such experiments never again. Or... Why not? Paeches and Neurosis in another "My dumps, my Humps fake?" I would like that!
