Brass Menažeri met Mr. Lif way back in December of 2010, when mad genius Devon Leger thought—unlike anyone else in the world—that Balkan brass would make a good backdrop for hip hop. So he invited us all to meet and collaborate in the Seattle Folk Festival. We sent a swath of largely fruitless emails, flew to Seattle, and had a single rehearsal in a puddly coffin factory, with a borrowed Crate bass guitar amp for Lif’s vocals. We didn’t get electrocuted, somehow, and thus we didn’t make use of the factory’s usual product. Instead we created a collaboration method based on live remixing the band, slicing and rearranging our repertoire on cue, muting and soloing sections of the band & looping sections willy nilly, like a DJ might if they held dictatorial control over ten people, instead of Ableton Live.

You weren’t there, but it was awesome.

We loved it & rocked it. We decided to make a record, raised money from friends & faithful strangers, recorded a lot of music, the band disbanded, some people loved and lost, others simply waited, we composed & recorded & edited & re-recorded (in three different countries) & cut & recut & recomposed (& decomposed a bit—happens to us all), and now only seven years later, you’re holding this thing in your I-wouldn’t-say-grubby-exactly hands, praise the laud.
We’re so eternally grateful to all those who believed in us and supported us throughout this long process; to all who donated to the project; to Waxsimile Records for putting us over the top; and to you for listening to the final result. We hope you enjoy this crazy fruit of our crazy labor & our crazy love. And while the world's winds whip up certain uncertainty, may we breathe deep & build Resilience together—our intertwined roots anchoring our supple-yet-shatterproof trunks, so that everyone's limbs might offer up their most beautiful particular fruit, to nourish us all, while we birth again the world.

LOL

tippi & alfredo - pissy mohawks and essays ep


i want and expect that Ep to be out by x-mas. can i drop a verse?

would be funny if a bunch of us on here could do a little comedy EP. cheap usb mics free recording software and a bit of time is all we need.

new no mask album: "USB MIC illa filler beat killa" coming soon. clocking in at 29 minutes and 70% filler, all vocals recorded on a USB mic and the mix is shitty. should be a hit!

Anyone buying the Mr. Lif/Brass Menazeri project should know that this project got funded with the help of kickstarter in I think 2011. I was one of the people who paid for this project and guess what? I did not get anything in return and I am probably not the only one. No message, no excuse why it took more than six years to release this album. Even now that the album is released I did not get what I paid for, simply nothing. No message, no CD, no digital copy, nothing. What a mess, I'm done with Mr. Lif and this project....
