Chadbourne, Eugene: Insect And Western Updater [2 CDs] (Chadula)
Label: Chadula    
Released in: USA    

"Some-including me perhaps-hoped the Insect and Western box set would be the final word on this musical subject that has even driven some sidemen to have nightmares. Perhaps in attempt to further said goal, I initially languished in necessary attempts to process recordings of important new insect musical portraits accomplished with the help of great talent-both Tasmanian and Texan-during 2008 and 2009.

Insect and Western Updater is a double CD set including several booklets, packaged inside a coffeebag. If you already own an Insect and Western box, you can put it right inside. It includes nearly 160 minutes of music and covers the Click Beetle, Flat Shield Bug, Spider Face Leaf Rolling Cricket, Raspy Cricket, Head Lice, Ear Wig, Spider, Millipede, Walking Stick, Inchman, Assassin Fly and Red Bottom Bee."-Eugene Chadbourne
