About The Doozer

Keep It Together is the fourth full-length album from the Fenlands shadow puppet master The Doozer. Relocating to a village hall, little theatre style, The Doozer set the task with a cast of 11 players dipping in and out of the village, with old Mrs. Mallows holding the keys. Previous albums were primarily lonesome affairs, so this group activity holds sway on the sound of this all-enveloping record. Chords are the name of the game, and it’s certainly got them! You’ll hear guitars, bass, piano, drums and slipping in to lift those harmonies, a string quartet and horns…. Is that a tuba from the Salvation Army you say? Yeah it is, and salvation is at hand. Just let it come down from the ‘Aluminum Dome’. I mean, perhaps you know what the weather’s like here, but if you don’t, take some advice from ‘Fen Drayton’ or if you’re in doubt about what flowers to get your girl, then check out ‘Fold Up Chair’ or are you undecided on your God? That’s ‘Oh Unbelievers!’. But none of its good advice, it’s just a crack at the seam.

“A recent show that blew all attending asses out of the water was a short gig by a Cambridge UK duo known as The Doozer. The Doozer actually seems to be one guy, and his playing partner is called Ben, but never you mind. Anyway, they have a new LP out on Siltbreeze called Great Explorers and it is a gas and a pleasure of great dimensions. The lazy man’s way to review it to call it a bridge between Syd B and Chris Knox, carrying all the weird damage and superb left field pop motion that implies.”- Byron Coley / Bull Tongue 2010 top 10

About Golden Calves

Collection gathers pre-Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice material from James Jackson Toth’s Golden Calves project. Originally released in 1996; reissue is limited to 1000 copies.

“It was really all about The Godz, Jandek, The Shadow Ring, Strapping Fieldhands, Swell Maps and Tower Recordings. Beyond these, I had only heard the ‘classic’ and most available free jazz, krautrock and noise albums. I was a long way from, say, the second Comus album or Charles Gayle. But this music changed my life. It was a record store owner named Eric McCarthy and a man who needs no introduction to anyone reading these notes, Matt Valentine, who taught me that there was a world beyond Dischord, Vermiform and Ebullition. I went to college, met hip people, and got a job at both the local record store and the college radio station. I was taking drugs. I bought a four track and began emulating my heroes. I called the project Golden Calves. I was eighteen years old….

In hindsight, I like to think that the noise scene liked us and responded so positively to us because, in our own naïve way, we were subverting a very rigid paradigm. Touring with noise bands and moving in experimental circles but playing proper ‘songs’ is what made us weird. It was an exciting, unforgettable time.

These are not perfect records. Perhaps worse than so-called ‘naïve art’ is ‘only-marginally-informed art’ and that’s what this is. I should have let my talents marinate for a while before rushing out records that now sound to me like thinly-veiled love letters to Siltbreeze. But fuck it, man. I was hopelessly arrogant then and remain so today. Why else would I greenlight this fucking thing?”
