toolshed - Toolshed
Following his ten year apprenticeship in 808 state, Graham Massey was finally given the keys to his very own Toolshed in 1997 with the birth of his first son. A 14-piece multi-drummer and brass heavy unit, Toolshed were formed as house band to the same-named Manchester night-club with this eponymous double LP a self-proclaimed "anthology of activity; or scrapbook". With the full album included on CD as well as etched into two chunks of the black stuff, 'Toolshed' opens with the imposing racket of 'Pazuzu', wherein the vibrancy of fuck-loads of drums duking it out over what sounds like a Christmas carol becomes patently clear. In comparable spirit, 'Mathematica' and 'Watusa' rattle around with high-kicking intent, nicking bits from Duke Ellington and Sun RA, then sellotaping it back together through sheer exuberance. Elsewhere, 'Nana Nana Naa Naa' is a platter of horns+breaks, 'Don King Singh' is Stephen Hawkings getting mucky down Blackpool beach, whilst 'Mahaladin' closes proceedings with a white-knuckle blast worthy of Melt Banana.
