Material - Improvised Music New York 1981


HOW WAS THIS EVEN THE SAME YEAR AS MEMORY SERVES?!

A freeform mess with an emphasis on silences, unsettling rattlings, and then assaults, rather than just that last step. Hellish and disturbing, particularly in the silences. When they give it all they’ve got assault-wise, their musicianship is actually pretty awesome. The tones in Untitled 3 sound like they just killed jazz! The pig/ape noises in Untitled 4 sound like they just stopped being human! Visceral enough to be unpretentious: I’m pretty sure what they’re going for is however the listener reacts, whether that be stimulated, disgusted, or both.
