Joujouka Black Eyes CD available again from this weekend

Joujouka Black Eyes the 1995 classic release by The Master Musicians of Joujouka is now available at our store.The CD was the first production by Frank Rynne of The Master Musicians of Joujouka and was the first release by the Masters on the Sub Rosa label. Recorded over a nine week period in 1994; it features both large ensembles and small groups of the Sufi masters playing in informal settings.. The CD contains 16 tracks including Brian Jones Joujouka Very Stoned. This tribute to Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones is a standard in the musicians repertoire.
Joujouka Black Eyes has been hard to come by in recent years but following the success of the Brian Jones 40th Anniversary Festival in July 2008 the CD is now available again.

"The contrast between the earthy drum rhythms and the delicate filigree of the flute work, sounding like some avian fantasy, is luscious. Listeners who only know this genre through recordings like Apocalypse Across the Sky owe it to themselves to hear Joujouka's flip side, the one without one ear tilted toward the world music market."

The Lazarus Corporation : September Art Updates

the lazarus corporation news & updates
alternative visual art, music & writing

Here are September's art updates from the Lazarus Corporation. It's been a little quite because I've been on holiday for the past two weeks, but many projects have been continuing in the background.
So first of all, we'd like to mention an exhibition from some friends of ours:
Danse Macabre 2008
Danse Macabre 2008 at View From The Top, Nottingham, UK, from 29th October to 4th November 2008.Private View on Friday 31st October from 7pm to 9pm.Post Mortem in the Pit & Pendulum hostelry from 9pm until late.
Roll up, roll up, and step right this way... Let the Danse Macabre take hold of you as we lead you by the hand through the dark forest of the subconscious. But do keep up! Don't stray too far from the path, as you never know what strange fate may befall you. We have many wondrous and macabre sights for you to behold, so do draw up close as we weave our spell upon you.
Danse Macabre brings to you for the second year running an exhibition of 19 artists whose artwork draws upon the ethos of Gothic Romanticism.
The private view will incorporate a performance by Annette Foster (aka ‘Netty Page’, ‘Transgressa’) and compèred by prestidigitator Dee Christopher. Guests will be fortified by complimentary sinful cocktails served courtesy of the Pit & Pendulum and generously sponsored by Basilica Music. Choose your company carefully as you will be recorded on film for posterity by Trent House Studios and LuridTV for later amusement (wear what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law!).
Guest list applies at the private view so RSVP to with your name as well as those of your companions to guarantee your places. However all are welcome to attend the Pit & Pendulum afterwards to network and socialise.
For more information on Danse Macabre and the artists involved:

...and now back to what's happening on the Lazarus Corporation:

The Book of the Erinyes
We've recently launched a brand-new microsite for The Book of the Erinyes. This project - a limited edition handbound artist's book of manipulated photographs accompanied by text written in the style of a late 19th century apocalyptic tome transcribed by an opium addict - is something I've been planning since January.
The Book of the Erinyes website has a journal (read: blog) with RSS feed so you can keep up with the progress of the project.
Recent journal entries include:
Book Bindings and Vine Leaves
A Preview of the Text
A Movie Trailer for an Artist's Book?

The Lazarus Corporation on Facebook
If you're a Facebook regular then you really should become a fan of the Lazarus Corporation on Facebook. Signing up as a fan means you can get irregular updates about the various art projects we do sent directly to your Facebook account, which we thought you might find convenient.

The Lazarus Corporation Blog
We're getting deeper into ideas for online arts/music marketing & promotion on the Lazarus Corporation blog. Here's some quick links to a choice selection of some of the latest articles:

Discussion Forum
And finally, for what we'll euphemistically call "less structured discussion", there's the Lazarus Corporation Discussion Forum where interesting debate and news of good art, music, books and cinema lives side-by-side with chat, gossip and gobbledygook.
Coming Soon
There's more artwork due soon, progress reports on the Book of the Erinyes, and a whole new spin-off site in the form of a directory of alternative culture links. We hope to see you there.
