Rip, Rig and Panic
Drummer Lopez in a series of duets, all Rahsaan Roland Kirk covers. Very abstract/improv in nature -- on a few of these, it's hard to believe there's a connection to the original song.|
Fun stuff, though, mostly twisted and a little playful. Lopez has a different sparring partner on each track:
1*- Thierry Modiot on trombone. Happy goofy whistling sounds.
2*- Emmanuel Bex on Hammond organ. Choppy, chaotic fun.
3- Chim Nwabueze: voice & musical saw. Poetry, then quiet scrapes/squeaks.
4*- Benot Achiary, voice. A joyous explosion of wordless vocal and drums.
5- Noel Akchote on guitar. VERY quiet, gongs and a small background roar.
6*- Harry Beckett on trumpet. Spritely, jazzy.
7- Joelle Leandre on bass. Folky-sad-abstract.
8- Andrea Newmann on electronics. Noisy with lots of pauses. Annoying.
9*- Majid Bekkas on vocals and guembri. Develops a cool little "world" groove.
