“BC35: VOLUME TWO” OUT NOW! and here at Bronson Recordings headquarter we are excited as hell!
“BC35: Volume Two” – is out today April 19th on your beloved Bronson Recordings – is the sequel to last year’s “BC35” album. The project is a tribute to producer Martin Bisi and his Brooklyn studio, BC Studio, where he has lived and worked since the early ’80s. Bisi is perhaps best known for a certain, heavy, noisy, New York sound that bridged gaps between rock and the avant-garde – bands like Sonic Youth, Swans, Live Skull, Helmet, Unsane, White HILLS and almighty Cop Shoot Cop – but in fact he has also worked with Brian Eno, Whitney Houston, Iggy Pop, Herbie Hancock, Fab Five Freddy, and The Ramones.
“BC35: Volume Two” consists of recordings of new material (some composed, some improv) from dozens of BC Studio alumni who gathered at the studio to jam out in honor of Bisi.
“If you have even a tangential interest in art-rock, noise, industrial, and metal music from the ’80s through today, then you’ve probably heard something Martin Bisi has worked on. The prolific producer is responsible for capturing the sounds of Sonic Youth, Swans, Helmet, White Zombie, Cop Shoot Cop, and many more – including Herbie Hancock’s GRAMMY-winning hit, Rockit – at his BC Studio recording facility in Gowanus, Brooklyn.”
“…it will take your mind on an outergalactic Noise Rock trip to another fucking universe. BC35: Volume Two is the sequel to last year’s BC35: The 35th Anniversary of BC Studio. What I love is that this record is punk as fuck without sounding like anything you have ever heard before. “

“Last year, underground NYC music producer Martin Bisi celebrated the 35th anniversary of his BC Studio with a compilation album of music recorded at BC Studio… Bisi is now following that album with ‘BC35: Volume Two’ including many of the same musicians that performed on the first album, as well as some new ones, including current and former members of Sonic Youth, Swans, Cop Shoot Cop, Blind Idiot God, Violent Femmes, Dresden Dolls, Lydia Lunch’s band, White Hills, and more, while experimental/noise vets Live Skull reformed under for the BC35 project.
“‘BC35’ is a project honoring the legacy of producer Martin Bisi and his Brooklyn studio, BC Studio… Celebrating BC Studio and the ethic it represents.”
