RVNG present FRKWYS Vol 5: Mirror Mirror
The RVNG INTL juggernaut of brilliant weirdness that is the FRKWYS series reaches its midway point with the focus squarely on the Brooklyn based purveyors of spaced out psychedelia and fine moustaches known as Mirror Mirror.
Very much in sync with the ethos of previous editions of the FRKWYS series, vol 5 sees RVNG call on a cast of 70s British post punk icons to daube their own sonic identity on the Mirror Mirror musical palette. Stuart Moxham of Young Marble Giants and The Gist and Alig Fodder of Family Fodder fame both tackle tracks from Mirror Mirror’s 2008 debut album The Society for the Advancement of Inflammatory Consciousness whilst Rico Conning of The Lines delivers a remix of a track from Mirror Mirror’s forthcoming album.
Finally the duo have teamed up with iconic NYC musician Stuart Argabright 0f Ike’s Yard, Comet Crew and Dominatrix fame for some original material in the shape of “Nau Sau Ser Bil Uma Rah Rab” which kind of reminds us of vintage Beta Band soaked in an acid finish. There’s much more information about this release on the RVNG site, though we urge to check out this video for “Nau Sau Ser Bil Uma Rah Rab” directed by Robert Bittenbender for an idea of what to expect from the release.
