Pelt biography
Extended experimental "raga" rock project by the blues guitarist Jack Rose.

Jack Rose is a talented American blues rock guitarist which in parallel of his solo albums has released several items for an experimental, minimalist Eastern tinged raga inspired project named PELT. In this production, the acoustic, folk side of his musical background is orientated to unconventional, highly mystical experiences released with the help of traditional instruments as acoustic modal guitar, bowed strings, cello, bowed metal with the addition of amplified sounds.

In this adventure, Jack Rose is accompanied by three other musicians: Mike Gangloss, Pat Best and Skipp James Connell. The quartet explores the universe of suspended "drones", the meditative density of Eastern classical music and post rock. They provide a rather luminous, static and cinematic extended exploration through infinite time.

PELT has published their first "classic" double album in 1996, called "Brown Cyclopedia".
After that they have recorded the free form "Burning/Filament/Rockets" in 1996, then "Max Meadows", recognised for its great sense of diversity (a mix of Eastern raga, psychedelic rock and "world").
"Empty Bell Ringing In The Sky" marks their most psychedelic effort with freak out epic tunes.
"Ayahuasca" (2001) is dedicated to the acoustic guitarist John Fahey. It features fingerstyle over ecstatic raga accompaniments.
Published in 2003, "Pearls from the River" is another exploration of acoustic folk, monochord & calming raga sonorities.

A completely hypnotic musical trip and a must have for fans of Faust, Ravi Shankar, John Fahey, Third Ear Band.

Review by Guldbamsen
Special Collaborator Retired Admin

3 stars Into the black pool

Ayahuasca is the brew used by the Indian shamans in South America. While it's purpose traditionally is one of religious catharsis and enlightenment, it has been used by many travellers, trippers and seekers of truth or bewilderment by unconventional methods. I am no Indian, nor have I ever been lucky enough to frequent the lush rainforest where these peoples try their best to be one with the all encompassing greenery, but I must confess to having experimented with all sorts of mind-bending elixirs.

This album will probably take you the closest to the experience of the fever induced tripping of the sacred Indian liquid. It takes a lot of effort though - a lot of patience and will to submerse oneself into the murky darkness of the music and one's own bottomless brain-pit. It's like watching a Jackson Pollock painting - without start or end the haphazard splatters of colour explodes in all directions; a series of unprecedented energies and events that you're never going to fathom nor explain - they're there and that's it. Like life itself, a tree, a sidewalk with people passing by in an endless array of solemn faces, umbrellas and high heels clicking. Where do you turn in the great big mush of energy and events?

This may sound strange to some of you, but then again you just might be the ones searching for answers in places where there aren't any, merely presence and event. Transcribed into music, that's exactly what you get on this record. A big slice of primordial soup - a mountain of gelatinous mass that gels on by you like a strange encounter with a dream made up of fog and things you can't pick out. Sawing, droning modal guitar experiments dragging themselves forth with a sluggishness comparable to a stoned immaculate sea slug. Bowed metal sounds and intermittent tape effects that startle you in a hazy manner, like nearly awakening in your dream and then not really - as if your ninja lover is pouring thoughts of sand down your ear tunnel while you're setting sails on the black and blue oceans of Fantasia. Meditative slowly unfolding cello screeches emanating - frightening like horror movie gestures and highly vocal felines in the hours before dawn.

The thicket unveils at certain points as strummings of acoustic guitar suddenly emerge and re-enact musical familiarity. A folk note becomes present and colours turn into colours - definable sound that opens up the avantguarde canvas. The feel is that of ease - you've made it through the dark and are on your way into sunshine and reality, for then only to swoop back into the breach. It's a relentless journey spanning through 2 discs of some 2 hours and 10 minutes, where heads are tails and the other way around...simultaneous and then not really. Like I said, it takes a real effort, courage and patience to finish this trip.

This music is equal measures indistinguishable and enormous. It sounds like giant ferries of the mind docking in unseen places. There's no reference points, no melodies, no red line, no real sense of direction........yet it edges its way into your subconsciousness like a sonic botfly on the prowl - digging burrowing down into your head. If you blink the sensation eludes you - the feeling gets lost and the trip is over, but if you start out with closed eyes and with an open mind - ready for submersion into the black pool, then this will take you into strange beautiful places that are normally only saved for dream-catching spirit quests and people who seek them through holy liquids and the feathered shaman holding your hand.

— First review of this album —
2 stars The part of an experimental music character might have indicated some direction at an initial stage for the music character of this Pelt that appeared as one of the bands that represented the VHF label.

As for the music character that Trio at an initial stage produces, the pursuit of a part of psychedelic united and an experimental music character might be reflected in the work.

Because psychedelic and an experimental music character are united, the flavor of Raga Rock might not be able to be felt so much with this album.

However, a flavor of grungy reflected in the album and a gray anacatesthesia might be the music exactly characters for them.

The point to have already established should consider atmosphere not staying in Rock straight certainly simple. And, atmosphere that rules the sound and the whole of the guitar where the part of Blues Rock to digest some is had is already one of the individuality of them. The development of the part of good psychedelic and the music character that has been absorbed is splendidly expressed as individuality of this band.

— First review of this album —
3 stars Pelt is an unbelievable weird-psych-drone-folk-raga guitar project from Jack Rose (master of the neo Appalachian acoustic guitar style). This self title album contains a great dose of acid, lysergic buzzing drones for acoustic strings & discreet percussion parts. The opening theme is a blissed out, almost sacred buzzing raga with endless strings loops, featuring acoustic "ritualistic" percussions in a deep "cerebral" atmosphere. Really extreme epic improvisation. The others compositions are also highly inspired by india mysticism and dark , dense, sapcy abrasive acoustic ragas. Track 3 culminates the album with a trancey like experience that really takes you into paradise. It contains more variations and fabulous, always subtle arrengements. This is anti melodic music and pure harmonies. A very enchanting album with similar mental projections delivered by the classic "Pearls from the river" but not so warm and contemplative. These static micro tonal textures can easily be disconcerted for the neophyts and fans of "mainstream" progressive rock.

3 stars Avant-psych-folk trip with hyper "abrasive" noisy buzzing drones. Less refined than the colourful and meditative "pearls from the river". However each composition includes lonesome sustained tones, incorporating screaming (raga like) violin parts, sitar and metallic echoing guitar chords. Ambient bowed strings album with top class psychedelic experimentations. It can easily attracts the attention of most adventurous prog listeners and fans of the "dream syndicate"

Review by philippe
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars Massive "drone" effects for a massive meditative album. The "prepared" acoustic, modal guitar of Jack Rose resonates on circular motifs and minimalist sound patterns. Three long sustained improvisations have been recorded. It's rather simplistic in form but it hides a lot of colourful, rich experiments notably due to sound manipulations, "mobile" textures of "loops" and strings arrangements. I really love this music because it takes me back to the powerful "mantra" like effects on the psyche, provided by grandiose avant garde albums as "Slapping Pythagoras" (Tony Conrad) or "Locus Music" (Henry Flynt). Beautiful, "Ecstatic", timeless and most of all strictly acoustic in structure. For those who like the game of repetition, drone sequences, low-fi expression and post rock inventions, this one is definitely for you. Among the most accomplished psych / progressive efforts by Pelt.

Thanks to Philippe Blache for the artist addition. and to E&O Team for the last updates
