No Meat No Bone | The Quiet Club

Farpoint Recordings are delighted to announce the release of McCarthy & O’Shea’s second solo outing as The Quiet Club. The CD arrives with all the exquisite attention to sound and visual detail that one has come to expect from this unique collaborating duo.

we are in a decertified with debris of all languages. the de-composition of meaning has progressed rapidly; all phrases, words and even recognisable syllables have completely disappeared.

excerpt from a text by Michel Waisvitz

During January and February 2016, Danny McCarthy and Mic O’Shea were invited to work as artists in residence at the Rauschenberg Foundation in Captiva Florida. The residency was housed in Robert Rauschenberg Studio’s and estate.

While there, The Quiet Club utilised the studio and other facilities and quickly settled into a regular series of daily improvisation and recording sessions. Meeting each day at 2pm in the shed on Jungle Road allowed for a run of highly focussed and intense collaborations, the results of which can be heard on this CD - No Meat No Bone.
