SUNDAY AUGUST 6TH!
David Nance, Omaha veteran of warble and hiss, returns with Negative Boogie, his new concoction of chug, throb and greasy swagger. For Boogie, Nance trades in his beaten up Tascam 488 for the bullet-proof,
glass walls of A.R.C. Studios. Where else can you brew the negative
boogie? And what exactly is the negative boogie? Well, it’s a bit like
Canned Heat but with Pere Ubu’s queasy rhythms and someone playing
five finger fillet with Swell Maps. Ensconced in his ivory tower
and soundproof rooms, Nance reached for unlikely weapons to tear down
his own lofty experiment. He had his pick of rare guitars, cowbells,
steel drums, vintage amps, Crazy Horse microphones, mellotron, and the
restless but indefatigable rhythm section of Kevin Donahue and Tom
May. They started at sunrise and recorded 15 songs by midnight. Maybe
it’s his Midwestern work ethic, maybe he’s a sonic cheapskate. Maybe
it’s just the sound of negative boogie.
