descriptions, reviews, &c.

"It was Jimmy Carl Black's nightly conversations with a Mexican Pizza guy named 'Beto' that made me want to play "Cortez the Killer" as three nights of the Jack and Jim Show unfolded at John Zorn's club The Stone on the Lower East Side, New York City. It was both the end to an extended Chadfest at the venue and quite close to the start of the American leg of the Think 69 tour. Jimmy was 69 years old in 2007 and this was the first time he had been back to perform in the USA since it turned into Bush World, the subject of "Waltz Across Connecticut/Texas." Trumpeter Thomas Heberer was one ofthe guest during The Stone run, while bassist Joeee Conroy and clarinetist Steve Good came on board in Louisville. in Kansas City the illustrious Chad Meise made a particularly fine live recording. "(Hey Oh!) Snow" is the first portion to be heard here from that gig. Robert O'Haire naturally documented The Stone shows and makes an excellent DVD compilation available, having already come up in 2007 with films from the 2001 Spaced Oddity tour in which Jimmy and I can be observed first working out our arrangement of "Click Clack" [...]"-Eugene Chadbourne, from the liner notes

Artist Biographies:

"A seemingly endless -- and endlessly eclectic -- series of releases made the innovative guitarist Eugene Chadbourne one of the underground community's most well-known and well-regarded eccentrics. Born January 4, 1954 in Mount Vernon, NY, Chadbourne was raised in Boulder, CO, by his mother, a refugee of the Nazi death camps. At the age of 11, the Beatles inspired him to learn guitar; later exposure to Jimi Hendrix prompted him to begin experimenting with distortion pedals and fuzzboxes. Ultimately, however, he became dissatisfied with the conventions of rock and pop, and traded in his electric guitar for an acoustic one, on which he began to learn to play bottleneck blues.

Perhaps Chadbourne's most significant formative discovery was jazz; initially drawn to John Coltrane and Roland Kirk, he later became an acolyte of the avant excursions of Derek Bailey and Anthony Braxton. Despite the huge influence music exerted over his life, however, Chadbourne first studied to become a journalist, but his career was derailed when he fled to Canada rather than fight in Vietnam; only President Jimmy Carter's declaration of amnesty for conscientious objectors allowed the vociferously left-wing Chadbourne to return to the U.S. in 1976, at which time he plunged headlong into the New York downtown music scene. After releasing his 1976 debut, Solo Acoustic Guitar, he began collaborating on purely improvisational music with the visionary saxophonist John Zorn and the acclaimed guitarist Henry Kaiser.

Quickly, Chadbourne carved out a singular style, comprised of equal parts protest music, free improvisation, and avant-garde jazz, topped off with his absurd, squeaky vocals. A complete list of Chadbourne's countless subsequent collaborations and genre workouts is far too lengthy and detailed to exhaustively document, although in the early '80s he garnered some of his first significant attention as the frontman of Shockabilly, a demented rockabilly revisionist outfit which also featured the well-known producer Kramer. Following the group's breakup, Chadbourne turned to his own idiosyncratic brand of country and folk, accurately dubbed LSD C&W on a 1987 release, the same year he joined the members of Camper Van Beethoven for a one-off covers project. In addition, he recorded with artists ranging from Fred Frith and Elliott Sharp to Evan Johns and Jimmy Carl Black, the original drummer in the Mothers of Invention; in between, he continued exploring unique styles inspired by music from the four corners of the globe, all the while issuing a seemingly innumerable string of records, most of them on his own Parachute label."
