Asheville’s Paper Tiger is on tour with Ott

Asheville’s Paper Tiger is on tour with Ott-attachment0

British producer and musician Ott has a bio that reads like a post-modern-day adventure tale: He was “doomed to be a teenager in the cultural wasteland that was the mid-1980s provincial England. After a brief period wandering aimlessly through the hairsprayed deserts of New Romanticism and poodle-rock he found refuge in the warm, inviting sounds of Scientist, King Tubby, LKJ, and Prince Far-I and the effortless grace of European experimentalists Neu! and Kraftwerk.”

He went on to work with the likes of Sinéad O’Connor, Embrace, The Orb and Brian Eno though, after mastering his engineering skills, Ott spent the late ‘90s and early 2000s holed up in the countryside working on his own experimental music. His studio discography includes both works he’s engineered, produced and remixed, as well as his personal albums — just last week he released the EP Baby Robot.

Here’s a preview from an upcoming DVD:

Another success for the British musician: He’s well-liked by local trip-hop outfit Paper Tiger who recently posted this update on their website: “We’re pretty stoked to be hitting the road soon with Ott and our friends Aligning Minds! We’ll be whipping out a new song off the upcoming new record, check out the ‘Tour’ page for deets!”

You don’t have to check Paper Tiger’s tour page — the important date is Wednesday, Oct. 2 at Asheville Music Hall. 9 p.m. doors, 10 p.m. showtime. $12 in advance or $15 day or show.
