Belgian guitarist/bassist, composer, and studio room wizard Pierre Vervloesem 1st garnered worldwide attention in the avant rock community back the first ’90s as an integral person in Peter Vermeersch’s crazed jazz-rock outfit X-Legged Sally, a fiery, high-energy ensemble that presented avant-proggy but tightly concentrated composing, a rock-solid electrified rhythm section, and front-line reeds (and trumpet) that ably navigated Vermeersch’s unforgettable charts in a manner that drew comparisons to Nick Didkovsky’s N.Con.C. ensemble Doctor Nerve and a essential Vervloesem and Vermeersch motivation, Frank Zappa. Vervloesem stuck with XLS through most of its ’90s incarnations, and in addition began to come out like a single artist with some his personal albums located in experimental rock and roll, rock-based improvisation, soundtrack music, and electronica, frequently showing a witty and punning love of life. He also participated in a number of other projects like a collaborator or bandmember, notably Vermeersch’s post-XLS big music group, Flat Earth Culture, producing and combining many FES discs and playing electric guitar over the ensemble’s 2009 Cheer Me, Perverts! Vervloesem acquired a busy calendar year this year 2010, regarding himself in a number of projects and carrying on his ongoing path from the Belgian Off label’s “P.V. Presents,” a Compact disc series largely, however, not solely, featuring discs which he has. In June of this year, he performed a “try-out” present in Antwerp of Caca, a fresh octet strikingly identical in idea to the initial sax-fired edition of XLS as noticed on that band’s 1991 Costs Laswell-produced debut, Slow-Up. Unlike the musicianship in lots of of Vervloesem’s rock-based tasks, the lineup of Caca (which Vervloesem provides reportedly said isn’t designed to convey anything scatological) is principally comprised of music artists through the jazz side from the formula. Vervloesem is highlighted on electric guitar and Gil Mortio on bass (reversing the musical instruments they play in the rock and roll improv Kings of Belgium trio), with various other bandmates including keyboardist Peter Vandenberghe (a Belgian jazz-rock and avant-prog mainstay noticed with such groupings as XLS, FES, Univers No, and Vervloesem’s very own Grosso Modo), FES drummer Teun Verbruggen, and four saxophonists: Benjamin Boutreur (alto) and Bruno Vansina (baritone), both from FES; Roeland Truck Hoorne (tenor); and Nicolas Roseeuw (bass), a significant contributor towards the rather like-minded task Fukkeduk (made by Didkovsky) back the middle-’90s. After a little more live performing following Antwerp live premiere, Caca released a debut disk, Sketches of Discomfort, this year 2010, within Off’s P.V. Presents series. The 11-monitor Compact disc highlighted nine compositions by Vervloesem and two by Vandenberghe. Off produced Sketches of Discomfort available being a stand-alone disk or within the CK Theory, a four-CD container established including three various other P.V. Presents CDs, SSSHHHTTTT with the Claude Zac Outfit (a three-guitar/bass/drums instrumental avant rock and roll outing), Grotesque by Codswallop (an avant pop/rock and roll release offering Bowie-esque crooner Richard Belgium), and John Koenig (the just disk excluding Vervloesem as a new player, a previously unreleased digital soundtrack by composer Koenig, who matters P.V. among his big enthusiasts).
