"Boss Italian woodwinds/drum duo who skronk the big bulb of freedom as hard as anyone. The overblowing is as insane as either of Borbetomagus's lips-guys, so it vibes like a collision between them and Flaherty/Corsano duo or something. Raw, loose, jibbery. (Byron Coley, The Wire, April 2011)
Legenday, highly volatile, psych-primitive unit from the autunmal climes of upstate New York. Fondling the same clammy flesh as Sunburned Hand of The Man and No Neck Blues Band, this band of John Schoen, Jason Finkbeiner, Nuuj and Joe Tunis marry fucked-up turntable sound with acoustic (broken folk?) instrumentation, tapes and voices to dazzling effect.
Since they first began playing together in a Rochester, NY, basement, Nod has been cranking out complex funk rock with an undercurrent of noise and chaos. Members Joe Sorriero (guitar, vocals), Tim Pollard (bass), Brian Shafer (drums), and Hugh Edwards (guitar) have shown off their groove craziness on a series of self-produced albums since 1990, including two full-length releases, Nod in 1992 and 1995's I'm Around. In 1998, they released their first CD with Smells Like Records, Magnetic Anomaly, an album that seems to synthesize the styles of all of their previous releases: each song exploring different aural territories and textures. Their follow-up CD released in 1999 by Smells Like Records, Radio Giddy-Up, continues along the same vibe, with a tighter and more developed sound.
One half of Wild Gone Girls. Homemade electronics and broken tone weirdness.
