It was announced at the gig last night. Cafe Oto is currently test-pressing the first album on its own, new record label, OTO Roku – roku means record in Japanese . The record, entitled “the worse the better”, will consist of a set recorded at the club at the end of January 2010 by Peter Brötzmann, John Edwards and Steve Noble.
There won’t be a CD. That’s right, no CD. The recording will appear on vinyl – with cover art by Brötzmann himself (whose extensive work as artist is on his website)….on archival/ conservation quality Duke parchment card. 180 gram pressing by Record Industry Netherlands, and mastered at D & M, Berlin…..or by download, direct from Cafe Oto’s website.
If there are no glitches, release/ launch are scheduled for end-March.
