Artist Info

World Sanguine Report

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Andrew Plummer forged World Sanguine Report to sound his unique and genre defying compositions. Featuring award winning, innovative musicians from the London and Leeds jazz and new music scenes; World Sanguine Report form a frightening and formidable ensemble; strength and beauty, heavy as lead. Plummer who "is quite clearly a deranged swamp beast trapped inside the body of an Englishman." (Wrath Records) pens music that reinterprets musical genre through juxtaposition of compositional techniques, cut throat improvisations and song. Drawing on a wealth of influences (Nancarrow, Scelsci, Beefheart, Messiaen, Waits, Patton to name a few) and through Plummer's "sonorous vocals and brooding performance", the result is a violent and beautiful journey, capturing "the despondency and antagonism of the most disaffected and alienated elements of Western counter-culture".

WORLD SANGUINE REPORT SELECTED PRESS QUOTES:


THE WIRE- ‘Third One Rises twists the noble craft of songwriting into a dystopian mindfuck’

THE VENUE- ‘Fabulous, refreshing and uncategorisable music and excellent theatre.’

ROCK-A-ROLLA- ‘This is the sound of Captain Beefheart being toasted and poked by pitchforks in Hell while an unholy melding of The Magic Band and John Zorn’s Naked City hoot up the most cacophonous skronk-fest ever heard in those hideous, fiery pits... what an incredible creation'

DIE SHELLSUIT DIE - 'Like all truly great records it rewards the listener who is willing and able to persevere. A record this ambitious succeeds or fails on the strength of its players. Fortunately, the musicians on Third One Rises are more than up to the challenge.'

JAZZWISE - 'The honey-and-razor-blades voiced singer/composer: Andrew Plummer's World Sanguine Report are a multi-headed beast of a band, boasting some of the freshest new talent on the UK scene. They all join together on Plummer's heartrendering wonky pieces, that sound part new orleans brass band part mr bungle to spellbinding tragic-comic effect. Think David Lynch getting drunk with Hieronymus Bosch in the bar of the hotel from the shining. with nightmarish lyrics plumbing the darker depths of the psyches, it is clear that Plummer has a writer's way with words.'

VORTEX - 'all the despondency and antagonism of the most disaffected and alienated elements of western counter-culture'
