Boomkat Product Review:
Poor School is the trio of guitarist (and Ex-Cocaine member) Bryan Ramirez, drummer John Niekrasz and sax player Nathan Hoyme. This LP, their Ecstatic Peace! debut, came about as a result of just one performance in the No Fun basement and a CD-R being thrust into the right pair of hands. Thurston's presumably. Despite the presence of Hoyme's sax you'd be misguided to assume this is a jazz record. it doesn't even fit in with the kind of far out free music Paul Flaherty and Chris Corsano have been known to stir up together, instead, Poor School fuse no-wave discord, chronically impenetrable recording fidelity and even a few stomp-along bluegrass riff breakdowns. The Holy Master is like a long-lost bootleg of some improv rock album Sun Ra never quite got around to making, setting barbs of angular guitar and wayward sax reeds against a brand of drumming that sounds less like percussion and more like an industrial accident happening somewhere in the distance. At other times, this is just an all-out noise album where all the various nuances of the instrumentation get devoured into a maelstrom of horrendous din, feedback and distortion. In any case, it all sounds heroically brilliant.
