In the late summer of 2011, Faust’s Jean-Hervé Péron drove from Hamburg to Budapest in his flamboyant camper van to perform with the Hungarian musician, Zsolt Sőrés and their mutual friends, Theme. The concert was marred by a double-booking with a techno party. After fifteen or so minutes, the venue was besieged by a throng of students completely oblivious to the music being performed in one corner. The concert abruptly ended with Jean-Hervé Péron chasing some of the more unruly men out of the venue with his trusty chainsaw.
Despite the ill-fated concert, Messrs. Péron and Sőrés remained in Budapest to record the double album that is The Wasp Boutique, which is a devastating amalgamation of two highly original talents.
The Peripheral Conserve label is run by the filmmaker, Peter Strickland, who recently made the film, Berberian Sound Studio. The label was initially set up in 1999 to release music by The Sonic Catering Band, but in later years branched out to release records by The Bohman Brothers, The Balanescu Quartet’s Clare Connors, Xylitol, Roj, én and entomological recordings by Jim Reynolds and David Ragge.
