Jack Rose

Jack Rose member of the legendary drone/noise/folk group Pelt since 1995. Pelt along with Tower Recordings, UN, Charalambides was one of the early groups who forged a new sound that combined free improv, drone, traditional folk music in the early to mid nineties, later coined "weird new america" by the Wire's David Keenan in the early oughts. Since 2001 Rose has pursued his own path in the solo acoustic guitar solo genre as invented by John Fahey. Like Fahey Rose draws his inspiration from early rural American musicians like Charley Patton, Skip James and Blind Blake. In addition to those influences he gleans inspiration from Robbie Basho, Ry Cooder, Zia M. Dagar, La Monte Young, Terry Riley. Jack incorporates all of these elements into his own idiosyncratic style and it is his sound and his alone. Since 2002 he has released 3 critically acclaimed LP's for the Eclipse label, 2 cd's for VHF, a 14 min track alongside fellow travelers: Rick Bishop, Stiffen Basho-Junghans and Tetuzi Akiyama on the now influential "Wooden Guitar" anthology released by Locust and one LP side on the massive triple LP set "You Shall Know the Roots, by it's Fruits" with Six Organs of Admittance, Ursa, Joshua, Dreaded Fooled, MV and EEC that was released and went out of print this year. This year his 4th LP/CD, "Kensigton Blues", will be out in aug/sept on the VHF, Beautiful Happiness and Tequila Sunrise labels.

hi - what i can get of the jack rose tape is great, BUT i've tried three times to download the file, and each time get a message that the archive is corrupt. it only unpacks about 33.7 meg of the 39 meg file, and gives me tracks 03 to 07. any idea what the problem is?
thank you for posting this, anyhow. i AM enjoying the tracks i can listen to, just wish i could hear the whole thing.
