Laddio Bolocko are a remarkable and lesser-known band, whose two albums are well worth your time. But everything on Live And Unreleased is previously unheard: 3 LPs worth of old recordings from suitcases! Liner notes from Oneida’s Kid Millions: if he likes it, you should too. Also includes a DVD of live footage. On No Quarter.
9/10 Geoff Customer review, 12th April 2016
Every so often a record comes along that knocks my socks off. This desocking happens rarely to me nowadays as I'm 65 and have been listening to interesting and challenging music all my life. But it happened with this Laddio Bolocko record. It's so exciting, inventive, beautiful and, yes fun! You know how you listen to some noise/free jazz and it's the musical equivalent of cabbage? You feel as though it's doing you good and it's very worthy, but you are frankly rather glad when it's over. Not so with this.
You will admire its brilliance but you will also feed on the sheer joy these guys are having with their music-making. How could they have gone unheard for so long?
