On Pestilence & Joy, the surprise comes at the end. One band member jokingly berates a Swiss crowd- "How come no one in Switzerland knows how to clap?"- and goads them into rhythmic applause. The band turns that clapping into the beat of the title track, which winds from folky sing-along to surreal samples to ranting sermons. The song is an odd mix of serious drama and arch comedy- not exactly what you'd expect from an album of improvised experiments. But it does sound like Peeesseye, and at this point that matters a lot more.

Pestilence & Joy Over the past decade, few experimental groups have been as intriguing and unclassifiable as Peeesseye. They began in Brooklyn in 2002 under the name Perfect Salvation Initiation, which became PSI, then pee-ess-eye, and finally their current moniker.

The trio of Forsyth, Jamie Fennelly, and Fritz Welch has ceaselessly created confounding, n sonic worlds, so the perplexing nature of the album art is consistent with the mission they’ve collectively pursued for the past nine years. This album is no exception, traversing the spaces between the two extremes of its title as quickly as it leaps from one musical domain to the next. In the track’s final moments, joy makes its appearance in the form of an epic piano phrase, and pestilence is embodied by the ghoul who grunts and gnashes its fangs behind the keys. Side B opene. nd a rottener man never drew breath is the most engaging piece of the album, as the trio pushes aside the murk to produce a refreshing space for diverse sound exploration.

Big party today for him at Hertford Museum, SG14 1DT .

Peeesseye's new record Pestilence & Joy is in the can (see the video for the title track above). All we need to do now is press the records so that you and 499 other people can put one on your turntable. Later this winter our collaborative studio album with Talibam! will also be released by Invada (CD) and Smeraldina Rima (double LP). And all of this happened while our once Brooklyn-based band members were moving to different time zones and continents. Jaime Fennelly has relocated from Brooklyn to Waldron Island, Washington, st Fritz Welch has moved to Glasgow, Scotland, and guitarist Chris Forsyth moved to Philadelphia in June.

Listen to music from Peeesseye like Plastic Grass. Find the latest tracks, albums, and images from Peeesseye. Since 2002 the Peeesseye (Jaime Fennelly, Chris Forsyth & Fritz Welch) has been combining elements of warped rock architecture, freejazz horror, intergalactic glossolalia and stripped down abstract expressionism. Their concerts and recordings travel through fields of fine decay and up against walls of bonechilling catharsis.
