Bobby Bradford Timeline

Source: Mark Weber. This is a nice biographical timeline of Bradford’s efforts over many, many decades of activity that goes beyond a sessionography.

Note that not every recording session by Bobby Bradford has been listed simply because a complete sessionography can be found at the Tom Lord Discography. I am hoping that anyone with additional biographical information on Bobby Bradford will add to the comments at bottom of the page.

The Adventurous Sound of the São Paulo Underground 

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

In March of 2022, Paula Rebellato from the São Paulo trio Rakta assumed a new role in the city’s underground music community. She co-founded Porta, a space for musicians to play gigs and collaborate through open jam sessions. Expanding the possibilities for collaboration, Porta shares a building with the workshop for local skateboard brand Lodo Boards. “I never thought I’d do something like this,” Rebellato admits. “But a lot of places had closed in the pandemic. I wouldn’t call Porta a venue—it’s a house. We don’t have a stage. It’s more like you’re playing in the living room of a friend.”

Dirk Serries on Fripp and Eno’s No Pussyfooting

Source: 15 questions.

No Pussyfooting was made in 72. For me, this phase from the late 60s and early 70s, up to the early 80s, marked a revolution in terms of what people created with sound. It is a period particularly rich in albums which were significant for musical history. But amongst them, No Pussyfooting may well be the one that defies conventions most.

New Magma Release, Kãrtëhl, Coming Soon

Source: MAGMA.

2020/2021. More than 18 months without being able to make a gig. This space of time, this imposed “pause”, was used to prepare a new album, a group album, as we had not realized for a long time. Following the creation of a new line-up in 2020, we once again offered musicians to bring songs, Christian Vander never having made the deliberate choice to be Magma’s sole composer. But in fact, none of the dozens of musicians who participated in this adventure had offered a new song for decades! After “ZËSS”, which hinted at a rather gloomy future, this bright and resolutely optimistic new album is the result of a collective work, an “Operation Kartëhl”.
