Graham Lambkin, Joe McPhee, Charlie McPhee, & Oliver Lambkin announce party retrospective on Black Truffle

Drunken behavior is frequently the precursor to sober embarrassment, so why not plan a night in where you can remotely witness a party with all of your faculties in tact? That actually sounds awful, now that I think about it, but maybe the dynamic between Joe McPhee, Charlie McPhee, Graham Lambkin, and Oliver Lambkin inspires something different than a Joker-esque feeling of social exclusion. The Lambkins and the McPhees (Charlie is Joe’s brother; Oliver is Graham’s son) got together at Charlie’s Poughkeepsie, NY residence in November 2017, and basically: the group had the idea to record their night as they partied, played random instruments, shot the shit, and played records. The night was recorded across multiple cassettes, and Graham has since finally, artistically conjoined them all for a release that will soon bear Black Truffle’s endorsement.

Live in the Batcave is out November 8, and the preview below certainly offers some insight into how the group got down two Novembers ago. It actually reminds me of the conversational part in the Graham Lambkin/Jason Lescalleet release, Photographs — though obviously, in this case, the banter would appear to last for the duration. You do like listening to drunk strangers, right?

Good answer. In that case, Here’s where you can pre-order. Be sure to lend this one to people possessing narrow definitions of “music.”
