12" Vinyl NL
Canadian jazz rarity from 1978 back on vinyl.
Canadian private press mega-rarity/ obscurity from the artistically schizophrenic Bob Bell.
Recorded in 1978, Bell splits the difference between his love of basement psych splatter/ pummel and squalling free jazz ramble, the former occupying side A with a stunning four part suite of wasted guitar scuzz and churning Krautrock-like drama with an akin to German Oak, Roland Kirk, Albert Ayler, DNA, Melt Banana (minus the vocals) and Guru Guru. The latter represents Bell as a saxophonist on side B, and the music itself translates into a 15-minute free-jazz exploration. [info from label]
