"I listened yesterday. It's no reflection on you but I could'nt see where you were going or what you were going for. This early seventies thing did'nt get noticed the first time and you talk about friends of like Dealney and Bonnie who had records out like we're supposed to remember who they are. Then you play this long winded free jazz stuff that really grates on my nerves. And that noise without a beat and sounds like someones being pinched. Then you play a reggae song, I think you called it Dub, to what, be cool? You seem to really fetishize the whole folk thing too which is obnoxious to us who don't even care. I liked it when you played that punk song though. I like Joe Belock a lot." (Visit homepage.)

A couple of wild and hairy tracks. I'm thinking of Coltrane's "Ascension."

Those dense pitch clusters in Eisenberg's playing sounded just wonderful within all that space. Really enjoyed listening to that piece with all its friction.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am tim from champaign:

I have no recollection of the Scott Colby record in the late 80s SST catalogue that came with records. I'm glad you brought it back, John. Are you up for the challenge of playing Always August?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:52am Passaic River Blues:

This is interesting. Like abstract kuduro-inflected techno.
