Now, to follow country with Jazz is probably Philthy McNasty’s worst nightmare, I see he divvied up the review pile today hence my curious haul of eclecticism. But then, I like Jazz so much I prefer to spell it with a big ‘J’ because it then looks more like a discreet tribute to the contrabass sax rather than the tenor. This record is quite fabulous, especially over the headphones where you can really glean all the fine percussive detail and intimate madness of this intoxicating freeform recording

From Helsinki, this quintet (originally a 3 piece now augmented with a third sax player and second drummer) have previously released an album on legendary Finnish free Jazz imprint Tyyfus. This latest beaut gradually builds into a complete mind-blast of anarchic decon-structure, fierce brass squall; feral skronk mingling with rattling lung-chunks; insanely pulverising kinetic drum chaos; viscous feedback and soul-expanding vibes (the blistering freedom and energy that is, not a vibraphone in there that I can hear within the din). Kim really likes the animalistic element, like a herd of stampeding elephants brandishing horns, she’s sorry that sounds rude.

Now, I’d hedge my bets this is the craziest record we got in this week, also It is certainly the noisiest, possibly the most entertaining, absolutely the most divisive and probably the most nicely packaged. It is a behemoth of a slab of vinyl and If you like the stuff on Qbico, the aforementioned Tyyfus or Sagittarius A-Star get involved.
