Mark Morgan (Sightings) + Gaute Granli + Guttersnipe on Thursday 7th November 2019
MARK CHARLES MORGAN is most well known as the guitarist and singer of Sightings, a New York City based avant rock band which existed from 1998 to 2013. The band was sometimes accused of exploring the outer reaches of sound in a traditional three piece rock format by the Wire, Village Voice and Pitchfork among others. They released 10 full length albums on the labels Load, Ecstatic Peace, Fusetron and Dais in addition to a few 7' singles. They extensively toured the US, Canada, Europe and Japan. Morgan also collaborated with No Neck Blues Band member Pat Murano in Key of Shame which released two separate albums on Italian labels Planam and Holidays. Morgan’s most recent release is his first solo guitar record Department of Heraldry released on Bill Nace’s Open Mouth label and has been reviewed in the Wire.
GAUTE GRANLI’s solo project has been his main musical output for the past five years where he explores a range of abstract and bizarre territories. He combines chanting, guitar, a range of effects with analog sampling and creates a dark and industrial sound. The music is freely improvised as well as composed. He's got two tape albums out here on Skussmaal: Velkommen til Forus and Ingen Potetsekk Whatsoever. His third solo album is an LP/CD called Animalskt, released in 2017 on Drid Machine Records and Unhinged. Drid Machine Records has also released a split vinyl with Gaute Granli and Clifford Torus.
