<<Answered by e-mail this evening>>1. Your gig in Turin is inscribed in the context of a festival about
"spirituality". And which way can we
consider your music "spiritual" in? Is it for your monks like costumes
and ritualistic movements on stage?
2. You will play in an old building that was the main prison in Turin.
Does this particular location inspire you in some way?
3. Which is Sunn O)))'s line up for this italian tour? Will Attila
Csihar be with the band? And which part of your repertoire will you
4. Is it true that festival direction's asked you to state that you're
5. You're renowned for the huge volume of live performances. Which
reason do you play so loud for?
6. Some years ago, a New York Times' columnist called your music
"heady metal". Is it a definition that you accept and/or approve?
7. Are you working on new material these days? Is there a new Sunn
O)))'s album on the horizon?

I lost the name of the guy who sent me these... get in touch if you read this.
on eBay at the moment... thanks to TOP FIVE / Mattias Andersson for showing me this.
Tyler printed this in his garage in about 24 copies I think. Maybe in 1995?
At some point we will scan all the issues we printed (5 in total between 1994-1999) and have them online somewhere. The reviews are especially brutal! More zines/websites need to be as harsh these days. Calling it like it is!
I am humbled to have been invited to perform a small solo set at HARD-HAT Gallery in Geneva, in conjunction with their show of HR GIGER'S prints from "Biomechanoid 1969".
The show runs September 15 - October 29, 2011.
The concert is on October 12th.
Opening: September 15 2011; 6 – 9 pm
Hard Hat is proud to presents two historical series by HR Giger.
Biomechanoid, eight plates from 1969, brings into focus for the first time many of the themes and formal tropes that will define the Swiss artist’s works in the following decades: a fusion between flesh and machine brewing in the concrete entrails of a future necropolis. Infused with a chilling eroticism, each plate repeats, permutes and transforms a series of motifs, accounting for the successive states of the gestation of some incredible creature.
Passagen, four photographic silkscreens from 1971, repeat a single motif, printed each time in a different two-color scheme. This nightmarish image – a detail of a garbage truck – stands halfway between a vaginal orifice and the entrance of a forbidding mechanical world.
Made at a time when HR Giger’s work was predominantly shown within the mainstream field of contemporary art, these neo-Symbolist works display an acute Pop sensibility. Both series were published by Bruno Bischofberger, who, since 1965, had exhibited artists such as Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann and Roy Lichtenstein in his Zurich gallery. Known today as one of the living masters of the more specialized field of Fantasy Art, Giger’s influence continues to be felt on the whole spectrum of contemporary visual culture.
Opening: September 15 2011; 6 – 9 pm
Exhibition: September 16 – October 16 2011
