WEASEL WALTER: Ominous Telepathic Mayhem
ugEXPLODE, 2011

FREE JAZZ/NOISE – Overheated, intense duets between mighty improv drummer Weasel Walter and four exciting players: trumpeter Peter Evans (1-2), guitarist Mary Halvorson (3-5), alto saxophonist Darius Jones (6-7) and guitarist/clarinetist Alex Ward (8-10). Balls-out, takes no prisoners. Yikes.

Fo’s Picks: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

1. 8:16 – frantic drum thump vs. speedy trumpet blare, then feedback scream
2. 6:45 – drums flip ‘n’ flop, harsh trumpet squeaks become psychedelic noise
3. 6:56 – freak guitar & scattered drums, repeatedly ramps up and drops back
4. 4:53 – big drum rumble & neurotic guitar get jittery and smash things up
5. 7:22 – disjointed guitar, drums & rattle flop all over the place, quiet middle
6. 7:51 – heavy blast settles down, dynamic drum rolls & querulous sax
7. 11:25 – high exotic wailing over thick wall of drums, just won’t let go
8. 5:19 – shredding guitar adapts to a series of incessant drum beats… rarr!
9. 7:55 – crazed clarinet weaves in & out of super-speedy drum patter
10. 4:38 – wild clarinet & mouthpiece bleats, overwhelming guitar, sudden end
