Health&Beauty (Wichita, USA)
As if Health&Beauty wasn't enough, the stupendously amazing Jonnie Common now joins the bill. Stay tuned for announcement of the final act...
Health&Beauty is the name under which Brian J Sulpizio has released music since 2003. The current lineup of the group has been playing together since 2012, featuring pianist Ben Boye (a constant collaborator since 2009, who also plays with Will Oldham, Angel Olsen and many others) and drummer Frank Rosaly (a regular collaborator with Peter Brotzmann and many other jazz and experimental music greats). This version of the group along with bassist Anton Hatwich, made up the band on Ryley Walkers Primrose Green.
NO SCARE is the most euphoric listening experience presented yet in the bands catalogue, where darkness and light cant help but complement each other in the short comedy of the human experience.
The Chicago-based three-piece share the first cut from their new record, a track entitled Wartime. The original version of the song featured a lyric and melody borrowed from Neil Youngs Hey Babe (from American Stars and Bars) which Neil would not clear for usage and which were replaced instead with a killer pedal steel solo, played by Matt Schneider of Moon Bros, and new vocals sung by Emme Williams of Fastness. Brian J Sulpizio said the following about the track:
A young man who lived in my neighborhood in Chicago was about to graduate high school and he was telling me about how the best option for him was to sign up for the Army. He was also considering becoming a truck driver but I never saw him after the one time so I dont know what he decided. I wrote the song with the volunteer army in mind. I really liked having the Neil Young line at the end; tied it together in a way. Were still doing that live, which I think is legal.
