Massimo Pupillo, Alexandre Babel, Caspar Brötzmann: Live At The Candy Bomber Studios, Vol.1 LP (180 gram + DL code)
Power trio of bass player Massimo Pupillo(Zu, Laniakea), drummer Alexandre Babel (Sudden Infant) and Caspar Brötzmann on guitar. As the title Live At The Candy Bomber Studios, Vol.1 indicates, this album is the first cut from an inspired recording meeting.
Raw energy with full focus; three instrumentalists, at the peak of their skills, blend noise rock, drone, and improvisation into two relentless, epic pieces. The line-up consists of Massimo Pupillo, bass player in Zu, Laniakea, and countless other constellations and drummer Alexandre Babel who is a prolific player in the experimental/contemporary field (artistic director of Swiss percussion group Eklekto, member of Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, and soloist who has performed with Otomo Yoshihide and Keiji Haino) and a steady member of the noise band Sudden Infant. And last but not least there's Caspar Brötzmann on guitar who has gained high reputation as one of the most radical guitarists around, admired by acclaimed artists like Thurston Moore ("probably one of the best guitarists I've ever met!") and Stephen O'Malley.
A powerful unit, recorded live in the studio by Ingo Krauss who had already worked with Brötzmann on the Caspar Brötzmann Massaker albums Der Abend Der Schwarzen Folklore (1992) and Koksofen (1993). 180 gram vinyl; Includes download code.
