FRIENDS OF DEAN MARTINEZ Friends Of Dean Martinez came into being in 1994 as a composition, consisting of musicians notorious American teams Giant Sand, Calexico and Naked Prey, as well as the group of Tom Waits.
The group declared itself the debut album "The Shadow Of Your Smile" and then "Retrograde" - retroSET instrumental guitar music, a tribute to the American surf -rock `60s and early ` 70s. Both albums came out on the famous label Sub Pop, the stronghold of the American indie sound and launzhkora (among the classics - the North American pioneers lounge Combustible Edison). No wonder the original band was called Friends of Dean Martin,on behalf of the king of the exotic, the famous Dean Martin. The maturity of the group associated with the cult New York label Knitting Factory, gave the world the galleries Atardecer, where Bill Elm begins to experiment with electronics, mugami and theremin, and the most famous work of the "Friends " - "A Place In The Sun".One of the most notable works of the period Knitting Factory group began treatment evergreen "Summertime" by Gershwin. The " ambient " feed " Friends of Dean Martinez " she showed to us yet another facet of his - Eastern meditative and philosophically judicious simultaneously. No improvisation - just a repetition of the melody ,each time arranged somewhat differently. Impressive also unexpected connection to the group in two other episodes of the string quartet - very dramatic and quite comparable to the known works of modern academic composers minimalists. Currently, the group recorded at the famous Glitterhouse independent label ,issued such classics of American and European indie scene as Hugo Race (ex-Bad Seeds), Walkabouts and Johnny Dowd.
