Big BANG! Theory (Part Two)
Part II of the BANG! BROS' Big BANG! Theory, Available Here on Cassette.
Western Massachusetts-based machine manglers BANG! BROS. have established themselves as trailblazing exponents of a fried strain of free jazz / noise improvisation built on the unpredictable live input of hands on drum machines and electronics. Big BANG! Theory lands on Hausu Mountain as a two-part set of tapes that find the core duo of Arkm Foam and Mark Johnson forming into some deranged conception of a jazz trio with the presence of saxophonist Andy Allen (ex-Guerilla Toss). While Foam and Johnson lock into momentary shared grooves or butt heads like rams charging each other, Allen threads his saxophone through the mix in winding, off-kilter lead lines and moments of heavy-blown brass intensity.
