ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Japanese connection continues with the new Japanese import on bass Ryo, and a guest appearance of Melt Banana singer Yasuko Onuki. Cellist Fred Lonberg Holm makes his second appearance on a Molecule's recording. Lots of dada tape editing (this is the companion disk to Ron Anderson's amazing solo CD - Pak Small r Half Inch) and great playing in The Molecules style. Much of the music on this CD became part of the touring song list for many years with concert favorites Freakout and Crazy Game. No-Fi was release in 1996 and is now out of print and available only as a download.

The Molecules
Paroxysmal and unpredictable, spazz-core trio the Molecules was a Bay Area underground fixture in the early '90s. Formed in 1990 by guitarist Ron Anderson, drummer Thomas Scandura, and bassist Chris Millner. The industrious Molecules played local shows constantly; they seemed to specialize in opening for Japanese noise bands. The oft-challenging performances predated much of today's avant-weird by a decade, serving up a genre scramble that drew equally from prog, no wave, punk. They managed to release several exceptional albums and kept up a hefty touring regimen that included jaunts across North America, Europe, and Japan. The band's keen approach to deconstructing song arrangements and experimental willpower were adored by many Japanese noise rockers and led to collaborations and tours with Otomo Yoshihide, Melt Banana, Merzbow, and Ruins.
