HINDS.PALMER.STAGNER - SHAKING RAY LEVIS: A.S.A.P. Wings
A great CD by this Rolls Royce of improvised - but tuneful and rhythmical and wild - trios from Tennessee who are at the a top of their game, like an experimental rock band that took the wrong fork at the junction of the Aylesbury Pike, just beyond Dean's Corners - only they didn't get all flustered, like those uptight new Englanders. To put it another way, this is great sounding, never less than gripping, relaxed, inventive and inspiring music. Here Shaking Rays Dennis (synthesisers and) and Bob (drums and) join Appelachian trance metal microtonal too-many strings customised guitar player Eric Hinds. They even cover the Residents' Red Rider. Try it, you'll like it.
