About the individuals in Blueblut:
Pamelia Stickney is probably the most recognisable player of the theremin in the world today, being key in the instrument’s development she is the number one go-to theremin player. Alongside her own compositions and releases she has performed with the likes of John Zorn and David Byrne. Mark Holub is best known as the animated Anglo-American drummer and bandleader of London based and Mercury Prize nominated jazz-rock outfit Led Bib. Holub recently decamped from London to set up home in Vienna. Flying machine maker, sound engineer, guitarist and automata creator Chris Janka is a kind of Viennese Caractacus Potts figure with a basement studio to rival Peter Blake’s. He also recorded, engineered and mastered the record.
Blueblut are back with their new album,‘Butt Butt’. Anyone familiar with their first album ‘Hurts So Gut’ will recognise the thrashing grooves, whirling improvs and electronic explorations, but ‘Butt Butt’ has so much more, from cowboy hoe-downs, to prog rock, and even to German grime, this band knows no boundaries and continues to create a truly twenty first century music.
Emerging from Vienna’s thriving underground music scene, Blueblut is arguably one of its most intriguing combos. The trio, founded by three musical powerhouses, famous in their respective spheres of jazz, electronic and avant-rock music, have the intensity of rock, the space and openness of electronica and the razor sharp precision and wild improvisation of jazz.
In Blueblut’s now three year history they have wowed audiences across Europe on their relentless touring, being described as “…the most effective wake-up call you could ever experience” by taste-maker blog Louder Than War and even picking up some praise across the pond with the Brooklyn Rail(U.S.) declaring “Most of these tunes come across like highly abstracted, well-executed cover versions of pop songs that never were.”. ‚Hurts So Gut’ also receieved a Japanese Release by Disk Union, which lead them to tour Japan, wowing audiences across the country.
2016 promises more of the same. There are already festival bookings across Europe in the summer, German and UK tours in the works, and plans for an album launch in New York, followed by an east coast USA tour in September. Blueblut is not a band to stand still.
