REVEREND DICK AND THE AESTHETICS OF COLLECTING
Bricolage, collecting, alchymist sound workshop, chance. These keywords could be used as a description of the Prague-based music project Reverend Dick.
The members of the band are no novices on the music scene though. Richard Bakeš and Daniel Vlček are longstanding members of the activist art collective Groupe Guma Guar where they were also responsible for the music side of things, leaning towards faster more harsh sounds like breakcore, noise or tekno. Their current project, Reverend Dick, might seem less political, but only at first sight. With the aesthetics of waste and a penchant for recontextualizing old instruments as their current way of working, it is still politics at play, but of a different, more subtle kind.
