...the one that got away... - Elaine Barkin, Paul Humphreys, Robert Kyr
Banned Rehearsal 556
Wrong Shape to be a Storyteller - Nate Wooley
A 50+ minute solo improvisation with a huge dynamic range that absolutely knocks it out of the park from beginning to end. I was completely grooving on the transparency with which every ugly-gorgeous sound was laid out into the room, always with plenty of time to sink in, never overstaying its welcome. Trumpet sound, feedback sound, other-room sound, all of it exquisitely raw.

Gradus 189 - Neal Meyer
Koko and the Sweetmeats, Ancient Warlocks, and Spinning Whips - live at the Columbia City Theater, Seattle
It was nouveau metal night at the Columbia City Theater, and we heard three energetic young bands demonstrate what full-on rhythm sections can do. I don't have much to say, other than that it was lots of fun, and that I kind of geeked out on the Spinning Whips' hollow-body bass.
