ORGAN THINGS: William D Drake in London this week, new video from Baltimore noise-rap performer Abdu Ali…

Lost the plot? Where was the plot? Was there ever a plot? “Tes and their reckless deeds, but because the country was becoming aroused, and the resistance to his advances was growing stronger and stronger. In the next attack he made upon a town or village he might receive a musket ball in his body, which would end his care”. Do we have a plot? Surely there never was anything like a plot? Here’s today’s plot

“Abdu Ali, Baltimore noise/rap/soul performer, has dropped a video for the track “I, Exist” from his recently released cassette on Deathbomb Arc”.


abdu_cassette“Storming out of Baltimore, Abdu Ali raps, sings, chants, and breathes linguistically over future beats to cast spells of inspiration. Openly black, and queer by birthright, what makes Abdu Ali truly unique is his passion. Bold, raw, and most importantly, life-affirming; what Abdu Ali manifests is a pure voice of raging love. When important things are going on like a call for justice, who is really concerned with arguing the minutiae of genre? This cassette collects the best of Abdu Ali’s online mixtapes, plus a brand new song. Pro-dubbed cassettes with full color artwork”.

William D Drake, sometimes we call him Bill, plays a London show this Thursday evening, that’s Thursday 12th February 2015 at 6.30 – 9.00pm. (do note that strangely early start), at Westmister Kingsway College Theatre. 211 Gray’s Inn Road, London WC1X 8RA


“Mr Drake will be supporting those fine fellows, Arch Garrison at Westminister Kingsway College Theatre (Kings Cross, London) this Thursday. Performing a selection of favourite songs, he will be accompanied by Miss Baigent’s clarinet and Miss Parker’s beautiful voice”.
