Details:

Conveniens was formed in 1984 with the release of Conveniens debut LP self-titled Conveniens. Consisting of John Maz-drums, percussion and David Sterling Smith- synth, piano, organ. John Maz was once tagged as being bionic for inhumanly precise drumming. John’s current approach to drums is more textural than rhythmic. David Sterling Smith’s major influences were, Keith Jarrett and Cecil Taylor. Dave’s approach to music is more like painting or soundscaping. There motto:’Although impossible, try to do what hasn’t been done before and keep it accessible’. Keyword here, accessible. They never wanted to go to far off on the deep end for the sake of sounding different or excessive selfindulgence. ABOUT THE CONVENIENS TRACKS RAIN KITE: an interpreted version of an alternate approach to the blues. KNOW IT AIN’T: starts with a straight two-four beat then enters a textural realm, so the title. MORNING LOBOTOMY: offbeat neuro synyh, surgicial inflection, a glorified migraine. BARNEY KLARK: a dedication to the world’s first known artifical heart recipient. REGULAR GRIND: a regular tune with their own grind added. DRUHM RUM: featuring Maz on double bass drums, toms and {cocktail glass chinging} cymbals. PROCESSION OF BONE: ominous, haunting pomp for special occasions {organ, synth, primal drums}. AFRISHA’NKI: featuring David Sterling Smith accoustic grand piano, over lying synth, accompanied by Maz’s appropriately placed cymbals. BLINK: rock reggae drums with a free wheeling lively upbeat piano leads up to crescendos ’til it totally drops off, where did they go? The Conveniens LP was orignally released in 1984 on vinyl and the recording engineer was Iain Burgess. The Conveniens CD {re-mastered} was released in 2006 and the pre-mastering engineer was Mark Richardson. There is also a hidden and somewhat surreal interview W/Conveniens on the CD that was not on the LP.
