TOM RECCHION

I Love My Organ OUT NOW

The bulk of the material on Tom Recchion's second album for Birdman was recorded just after the completion of Chaotica in the mid-'80s, and sounds like a natural continuation of that record (despite the absence of any Esquivel). Recchion is assisted on some tracks by noted musician, composer, author, journalist for The Wire, and music curator David Toop (himself a collaborator with Eno, Jon Hassell, John Zorn, Talvin Singh, Adrian Sherwood, and Scanner). Recchion labored on I Love My Organ for years and years; dark and atmospheric, it is simultaneously creepy and relaxing lounge music for psychotics.

Tom Recchion has been a notable personality in the Los Angeles underground avant-garde experimental music scene since the '70s, having been a founding member of the Los Angeles Free Music Society, art rock band The B People, and creepodelic quartet Extended Organ. He's collaborated with the likes of Keiji Haino, David Toop, and done numerous installations at galleries in the United States and abroad. There's even a planned collaboration with the Kronos Quartet in the works. In 1996 Birdman released Recchion's first solo album, an astounding sound collage of looped, manipulated, and extrapolated music by Esquivel. Like soundtrack music to a never-before-seen David Lynch film, Chaotica sounded remarkably fresh and timely when released (even though it had been recorded at least 10 years earlier).
