Brötzmann/Uuskyla – Dead and Useless LP/CD (MLR 003)
Peter Brötzmann and Peeter Uuskyla have played together in different constellations for more than fifteen years. Peter Brötzmann has been playing his own fire music since 1966. He started out with European free jazz musicians such as Han Bennink, Derek Bailey, Peter Kowald, Sven-Åke Johansson, Albert Mangelsdorff, continued with American musicians such as Sonny Sharrock, Shannon Jackson, Andrew Cyrille, Hamid Drake and Japanese musicians such as Keiji Haino, Akira Sakata, Toshinori Kondo, Takeo Moriyama. Peter Brötzmann produced his two first LPs all by himself. After that he teamed up with Jost Gebers to start the FMP-label, Free Music Production, in 1969. Brötzmann has created numerous album-covers and posters in his personal unique style, so his artwork became the FMP visual profile.
The OMLOTT LP-release is also designed by Brötzmann. The music was originally included in the double-CD Born Broke, but has been remixed and re-edited for this vinyl release. LP comes in heavy gatefold cover. Limited to 500 copies on LP and 300 copies on CD.
