Boomkat Product Review:
Uprock + The Aphasia Group shuffle through noise, americana, punk, free jazz, laptop wankery and improvisational percussion, offering music enthusiasts a feast of digital discharge, cover songs, recorded minutes from broken circuits boards and archival tracks from unheard oakland improv jam sessions. Highlights include: field recordings culled from peep show booths, free jazz mash-ups, oodles of live instruments (digitized and reprocessed guitars, drums, horns and percussion), pedals, patches, a contact mic'd fixed gear bicycle, and an amplified potato. think milford graves and the nihilist spasm band in conversation with tom ze and masami akita. Imagine a celebrity "jam band" fronted by peter brotzmann and eugene chadbourne uniting ex-members of matching mole, mission of burma and throbbing gristle for one epic, sun-kissed late '70s performance.
