Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones and dark ambient pioneer Helge Sten of Deathprod have joined forces on a new project Minibus Pimps and are already busy working on their debut album "Cloud to Ground."
Due on March 3 via Susannasonata, the record will drop a compilation of live tracks recorded at various live shows, musically fusing the '70s prog rock style with Norwegian new music movement.
As Fact Mag reports, the band's unusual name was coined as one of the titles from a Chinese experimental music compilation "The Sonic Avant Garde." According to the same source, the duo is using processors to sonically transform each of the instruments, which include guitar, bass, church organ and violin into "clouds of seismic drone."
Sten further noted that the band's music consists of "composed and improvisational elements on an equal scale," so it seems we're up for quite an intricate effort. You can check out the album cover below.
