Mary Ocher + Your Government
Following tours of 23 countries with The West Against The People and its follow up 10”-tape Faust Studio Sessions, Mary Ocher is back in Europe for selected dates with her two drummers Your Government.
Mary has been persistently creating passionate, uncompromising work, raw, thought-provoking, socially and creatively pushing against the current, dealing with subjects of authority, identity and conflict. Her work is as enchanting as it is polarizing, ranging from traditional folk to raw 60s garage, ambient with ethereal vocals and abstract synths, to experimental pop with African and South American rhythms.
The West Against The People was released on the German label Klangbad and recorded with Hans Joachim Irmler of Krautrock pioneers Faust. It features solo tracks as well as tracks with her drummers Your Government and elusive cult legends Die Tödliche Doris and Felix Kubin.
Faust Studio Sessions and Other Recordings (10”: Klangbad/DE + Sing A Song Fighter/SWE, tape: Related Records/US) features additional collaborations with cello player Julia Kent and Hans Unstern. Her previous solo release was produced by Canadian Psych Rock&Roll guru King Khan.
