Robert Quine solo

Two more Robert Quine records. The first is a collaboration with Ikue Mori, a well-known drummer from the NY "downtown jazz" scene, formerly with DNA, John Zorn etc., and Marc Ribot, who needs no introduction. A dreamy, atmospheric record; Ikue Mori mans the drum machines while the guitarists pass melodies and textures to each other.

Another Quine recording with drummer Fred Maher, who played on the second Voidoids album and is also known from his work with Laswell (Material, Massacre) and Lou Reed. Excellent instrumental guitar music, very stripped-down sound.

  1. Thank you for this! This Robert Quine retrospective really interests me.


  2. Quine is a Genius, Thank You very much, and Greetings from Argentina.

  3. I really appreciate all these albums with Quine. I used to listen to "Basic" all the time in the mid-80s, then lent it to a friend who never returned it... so it's great to have it back in the collection. Those two studio albums with Lou Reed were classic.

  4. unfortunately , the other blog has disappeared.

  5. Thanks! One year later! I thought you'd quit :)

  6. It slipped through the cracks... I recently did another batch of reups and realized I never got to this one.

  7. Sadly, it looks like it's gone again....

  8. Thank you for the re-up! I love Quine's playing on the early Material records.

  9. Oh, wait... vc é brasileiro? :) muito obrigada, então!
