Yoshihide, Otomo / Lasse Marhaug / Paal Nilssen-Love: Explosion Course [VINYL] (PNL/PICA)
Label: PNL/PICA    
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
