Pivot Clowj/Pirate Claug Releases
« on: April 10, 2016, 11:34:34 PM »
Hi everyone,

It doesn't look anyone is still active, but I just joined today to say that Jon has released two albums on Bandcamp: a rerelease of Pivot Clowj's It's not as if it were the end of the world... that was yesterday (including three bonus tracks, but minus "Havoc Man," "Drowning in the X-Pool," and the live version of "Mind On A String")  and what appears to be a compilation album of earlier music, entitled From Pirate to Pivot: the early recordings of Jon Sonnenburg. You can find both at the link below:

I only just recently got into House of Wires, and then Travelogue, so as someone who has never heard anything by Pivot Clowj before, I really enjoyed the rerelease of "end of the world." I haven't listened to the the compilation album yet, save for "Drowning in the X-Pool," but I'm sure that it's quality, considering who created all of the music in the first place!
And the rain falls gently on the town, and over the heads of all of us.

it is nice to finally start getting stuff out there.  There is so much to go through regarding the back catalog that it is a bit overwhelming to be honest.  I recorded A TON of stuff back in the 90's.  I think that compiling groups of songs into albums and releasing them one at a time is the best way to make steps toward making the back catalog available.

Glad that you are enjoying these so far.  :)

Hooray! It's finally out! I'm looking forward to getting the full early recordings release once I've ponied up a bit of cash. :) I just listened to "Fish" for the first time in a while the other day and was reminded how much I dig how weird you guys' early stuff is.

i'll be checking this out soon.
glad to see Jon is still putting stuff out somewhere in some format, things have gotten quite quiet for a while now.
