The Bohman Brothers - Room Service

Regular price $15.00

A dense collection of intricate close-miked small object improvisation, homemade instruments and slippery tape music wirr and skrong. All held together with a skilled sense of pace and humor.
While many of duo’s recordings revolve around collages of voice, Room Service sets aside the deadpan humor of some of their earlier works and gets down to an intense tape collaged funhouse of squeaking spring, resonating wine glass, clattering bric-a-brac and bowed whatsit.

From the Bohman Brothers EPK:

Adam Bohman and Jonathan Bohman have been recording together since their early teens and playing live since 1984.  
 Their repertoire includes a combination of sounds created in the moment and distinct compositions including songs. They use unconventional instruments, household objects, dislocated text from found, literary and commercial sources and collaged layers of recordings. 
Regular concerts started in the mid-90s in London at places like The Club Room in Penton Street, The Red Rose and The Klinker. From 2000 to 2005 they had their own concert series upstairs at The Bonnington Café in Vauxhall, London. 
Working together they are in a number of groups, including : Secluded Bronte with Richard Thomas, Apricot My Lady with Lukas Simonis & Anne La Berge and  Ischio Romantico with Leonard Aspen & Roger Boulding.  They have also worked with film-maker Peter Strickland on various projects. 
Additional collaborations with:  Christian Marclay, Luke Fowler, Andy Holden, Ken Campbell, Ilan Volkov, Steve Beresford, Lol Coxhill, L.Voag, Lepke B, Peter Fengler, Felix Kubin, Jim O’Rourke, Charles Hayward, Michael Prime and Neil Luck.
