Album Notes
"New Orleans' strangest and funkiest new contemporary jazz combo takes more than a page from the interplanetary logbook of famous space traveler Sun Ra.
The combo takes as much influence from punk rock as from funk and cosmic jazz, though. They've been around since 2003, but their recent performances and their spanking-new record, Eightballs in Angola, trades heavy horns for fuzzy guitars, electronic noises and wild percussion for a unique sound that they themselves describe accurately as "eclectic gonzo freak-rock," also drawing from other genre-defying mad scientists like Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa. Combine soaring avant-jazz trajectories with a sax player/singer's Iggy Pop-style ranting and writhing, psychedelic light shows, costumes and occasional go-go dancing and you have an interstellar musical experience of the most cosmic sort."
