False Alarms 21:30


PLANE CRASH 2 is the second document from the legendary, notoriously uncompromising improvisational power trio of Henry Kaiser, Damon Smith, and Weasel Walter... Trio music doesn't get much more real than this. Kaiser has been active in the improvised music community since the 1970s, bringing his dazzling technique and creative chops to bear in a myriad of diverse contexts, including Academy Award winning soundtrack work for longtime collaborator, director Werner Herzog. Damon Smith is an acolyte of the FMP school of improvised music, but he also betrays the influence of forward-thinking new music pioneers, be-bop masters, modern artists, and more, with a proficient voice of his own. Drummer Weasel Walter is
notorious for shirking the constraints of genre in favor of making massively original music, whether collaborating with jazz masters or anchoring the most pioneering of avant-rock units, like the Flying Luttenbachers, Cellular Chaos, Lydia Lunch's Retrovirus, Behold... the Arctopus, XBXRX, Lake of Dracula, or countless other units...

If you're at all familiar with these three, you should know that they will brutally subvert and pervert all of the expectations and baggage you bring to the listening session... and yet somehow, they manage to stake their own claim on strikingly new ground in the world of improvised sound.
