about

To help the members of Phÿcus prepare their parts for the reunion shows, Brian created rough drafts of the songs in the set list and sent them to the participating members. For the songs sung by SPK-553, Brian did his best to emulate SPK’s disregard for conventional notions of “pitch” and “timing”, but there’s nothing like the real thing. There was no sketch for “Thoughts Of Squid” as it was an improvised jam.

The rehearsal was recorded the day before the Montreal show, on June 11 2016, and held at Alex Moskos’ rehearsal space, known as The Zone. The set was practiced twice, only the better versions of the tracks are included here.

Phÿcus also recorded several bonus beats that are intended for new material to be recorded in 2018.

about

Phÿcus Montreal, Québec

Phÿcus was a Canadian industrial / experimental band that existed from 1988 to 2000. Phÿcus transformed from the traditional band format into a network that included over 50 contributors in a dozen locales, with Montreal as its centre of operations. Phÿcus' success was minimal, but their output was prodigious. This page is a work in progress to document everything ever recorded by the band. ... more
