Since their first collaborative album “Secret Rhythms” came out on Nonplace in 2002, Friedman & Liebezeit have been playing live all over the world, improving cyclic grooves and creating new ones. Paradoxically, their rhythms are difficult to grasp but easy to listen to. The 3 exclusive tracks for this vinyl only mini LP casually manoeuvre round the jagged rocks of “four-four time”.

Jaki Liebezeit’s signature drum-mantra is etched into the vinyl of the coolest moments of rock history, and the potency of his distinctive style is barely diminished since his legendary moments in the early 70s.

Burnt Friedman has again conspired with the upper echelons of the musically interesting, this time teaming up with David Sylvian ( During the process of remixing 2 of David Sylvian’s “Blemish” album tracks, both producers decided to start a new, ongoing project. Nonplace is proud to present their first collaborative piece, “The Librarian”, featuring David Sylvian as vocalist.

In addition to Friedman and Liebezeit, guitarist Tim Motzer weaves funky touches all the way through. He has resided in Philadelphia, U.S. since 1985 and has been busy working with a virtual who’s who of Philadelphia artists over the years including recordings and world tours with poetess Ursula Rucker, King Britt and the French duo Les Nubians.

Lined up for the group’s live appearances is Hayden Chisholm, a New Zealander who is living in Germany since a decade. He contributed all horn melodies to this mini LP. Other guest musicians are Morten Grønvad, vibraharp and Daniel Schroeter, electric bass guitar.

The mini LP Burnt Friedman & Jaki Liebezeit featuring David SylvianOut In The Sticks” (Nonplace / NON17) is going to be released May 17, 2005.

The Friedman & Liebezeit album on Nonplace is scheduled for 2006.
