About

$8,502

Re-invention has remained the only constant through Joan of Arc’s history. Simple constraints and practical technical decisions have more often than not determined the aesthetics of a particular record or period of activity. Integrating the continued practice of being in a band into the lives of all the members necessarily warps and evolves the band’s output.

And now, the way to be a band that makes sense is playing a lot, every day – playing a lot in private and playing a lot in public. Whereas the studio has in the past been a ground for exploration and experimentation, it’s now needed simply to document in the cleanest manner possible the sound of the band as it exists live. Steve Albini is of course the foremost specialist in this field.

But as the availability and ease of recording technologies has proliferated exponentially, the cost of a more traditional approach has become more restrictive. This is especially true for a band like Joan of Arc attempting to sustain itself by the most modest means possible, depending on a small number of dedicated enthusiasts.

This approach is the necessary contradiction to past approaches to keep Joan of Arc making.
