The trio of drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, guitarist Otomo Yoshihide and noise artist Lasse Marhaug in an album of powerful sound improvisation, two building works recorded at GOK Sound, Tokyo.
Yoshihide, Otomo / Lasse Marhaug / Paal Nilssen-Love
Explosion Course [VINYL]
Released in: Norway
"[...] "Explosion Course", the third album, presents another guitarist: Otomo Yoshihide. He is a more "classic" guitarist than O'Rourke, especially at the beginning where he creates a wall of distorted guitar sounds that almost drown out Marhaug's electronics, but enable Nilssen-Love to move to the foreground. The A-side presents Yoshihide sounding like Sonny Sharrock going berserk, with Nilssen-Love's drumming a torrent carrying everything away. The album is bookended by two loud outbreaks, but it also seems to be the most introspective of the three. There are long passages of what I've described as beautiful noise - especially the weird psychedelic passage at the beginning of the flipside which sounds like manic early Can. It becomes more interesting the more you listen to it. [...]"-Martin Schray, The Free Jazz Collective
