    Daniel Zelonky

    by Jane is K.O.

    in no particular order

    Seeking Other Beauty – Bayeté Umbra
    Anthology Vol 2 – Eddie Henderson
    Fulfillingness’ First Finale – Stevie Wonder
    Live in Switzerland (bootleg)- James Brown
    Treasures That Are Still There – Sun Ra (unreleased)
    Queen’s Suite – Duke Ellington
    Fresh – Sly & The Family Stone
    Pleasure Crimes – Hardman Bros
    Bombay 505 Miles – VA
    Wallet Box – Astor Piazolla

    Resisting narrow stylistic or genre conventions since he first appeared as Low Res in 1994, Daniel Zelonky has emerged as a keeper of the flame of ambitious and adventurous, yet rambunctiously entertaining American music. He has woven any number of improbably wondrous hybrid styles with a mischeivous humor and unabashed over-the-top approach to musical arrangement and expression, garnering critical praise and a cult following since his 1994 debut on record. Henceforth, Zelonky’s work (and band) will go under the name Suite Crude Revue to reflect the increasing propensity to this sort of showmanship. The previous Low Res albums, Approximate Love Boat, and Blue Ramen, have been internationally acclaimed and are currently available again on iTunes. Look Back With Knife, a collection of unreleased, rare & live tracks, and an early works and outtakes set entitled 15 Exitos Grandes De Electro, are also available on iTunes and other services concurrent with the release of Suite Crude.

    bleubird Bleubird is originally from Florida. Coming in via Montreal he is now about to find a new home in Berlin. He gets asked a lot to rap/shout/sing his poetry & lyrics all over Europe’s finest underground locations – together with “DJ CD-Player”, who serves a load of future music, that the word “HipHop” can just fractionally describe.
    “He’s one of the most positive yet bitter MCs you’ll ever have the pleasure of nodding your head to. In a single line, he’ll sound as political as Noam Chomsky, as dirty as 2 Live Crew and as emotionally fragile as a young girl’s diary entry.” Raf Katigbak (Montreal Mirror)
