RECORDED BY GWILLY EDMONDEZ IN MONTRÉAL, QC, DURING THE SPRING OF 2007
Yesterday In Parliament is a project conceived by Gwilly Edmondez for youtube, paying gnarled homage to the ubiquitous instrumentalist-demonstration videos posted in absolute earnest by musicians all over the world. Where the run-of-the-mill pours out tributes to beloved players like Boston, Rush and Queen, Edmondez seizes hold of the very intent, distilling its essence to precipitate a naked psychology of appeal.
As fans of the video posts, Manchester, England's Fenland Hi-Brow Recordings (http://www.fenlandhibrow.co.uk) offered to release a CD edition of the Montréal 'ritual' pieces (which made use of the incredible Almaz acoustic guitar from Kinshasa). Following two unsuccessful attempts to bring this stuff to the stage, Yesterday In Parliament continues as a project devoted exclusively to internet video posts, most of which can be found at http://www.youtube.com/user/prducer. The instrumental and vocal attitude of YIP does, however, have an increasing influence on the emergent Gwilly Edmondez solo set.
