Schnick Schnack Schnuck proudly presents an evening with Fletcher Tucker, Chuck Johnson and also Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz at Zukunft am Ostkreuz.
Gnome life records – “Cold Spring” is the first LP released by Fletcher Tucker under his own name / “Don’t have time to spend 7 years in Big Sur [California] staring into the void? Listen to ‘Cold Spring’! Fletcher Tucker’s deep immersion masterpiece… a powerful and haunting transmission of fire and earth.” – Devendra Banhart
Chuck Johnson is a composer and musician residing in Oakland, CA. He approaches his work with an ear towards finding faults and instabilities that might reveal latent beauty, with a focus on guitar, experimental electronics, minimalism and soundtrack composition. Recordings of his work have been published by VDSQ, Trouble in Mind, Scissor Tail, Merge, and Three Lobed, among others.
Between 2011 and 2015 Johnson released a triptych of solo guitar LP’s – A Struggle Not A Thought, Crows in the Basilica, and Blood Moon Boulder, that have become touchstones of the post-Takoma Records solo acoustic format. Balsams – his most recent album and pedal steel guitar debut – delivers what Pitchfork has described as “singular,” and “a mournful hymn built out of layers of sliding strings, cascading with a zenlike stateliness…”
‘Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz’ is the outcome of a long distance correspondence between Netherlands based musician Nick Jongen and Berlin based illustrator / comic artist Tine Fetz. “What started as the loose concept of “Tine draws, then Nick records” turned into an artistic and personal dialogue that neither of us saw coming. It took two intense months to shape this project, sharing secrets and getting closer along the way. Drawing and recording every free minute we had, ‘Ghost Bag & Tine Fetz’ became the narrative of our fever dream.”
This project will be released as a gatefold lp & 40 page riso printed A4 zine. The lp holds all the home recordings & the zine contains all illustrations and lyrics. Nick is also in bands Sleep Kit, Baby Galaxy, and I Am Oak. This is the first release as Ghost Bag. Tine published a book called ‘This Is Not Uganda’ (Jaja Verlag) and has a weekly cartoon in German newspaper Jungle World.
