. Live recording from 1988.

"The avant rock/improv quartet Slawterhaus was invited to the 1990 Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville. The first 50 minutes of Live come from their performance, the last ten from a concert at the Hofheim Jazz Festival a year and a half earlier. This is as close to rock music that violinist Jon Rose ever got. The same goes for trombonist Johannes Bauer, who would come back to the festival a decade later and record for Disques Victo with the free improv quartet DoppelMoppel. The music on Live can be easily identified as late-'80s/early-'90s "musique actuelle": The use of synthesizers, the deconstructed dance/funk rhythms, and the oscillation between straightforward popock song structures and free improvisation bring to mind groups the likes of Wondeur Brass, Cassiber (Peter Hollinger's drum set expanded with metal objects strongly recalls Chris Cutler's), Non Credo, and even the Muffins. The group is at its best in shorter time frames and tighter tunes: the funky "Escape to the East" is a good example, as is "Unplanned Economy," full of surprises. But the 16 minute "I Want My Wall Back" runs in circles. "Das Ist Kein Cello" features what sounds like a mean distorted electric bass but is actually a cello (!). The raw punkish energy on that number will puzzle -- and amuse -- even the most dedicated Jon Rose fan. Very good."-Francois Couture, All Music
