Longtime collaborators Abbott and Dadge release their first album together, a dizzying array of ideas and sounds recorded live at the monthly Calgary based Bug Incision concert series.

Abbott, Simeon + Chris Dadge: a menu isn't a meal (Bug Incision Records)
Label: Bug Incision Records    
Released in: Canada    

"Longtime collaborators Abbott (prepared electric guitar + electronics) and Dadge (percussion + electronics) release their first album together. There's a lot of movement in these two tracks, but there's a similarity in their approaches that streamlines the proceedings. The duo tosses a dizzying array of ideas and sounds at one another, and they are caught, tossed back, and(/or) sidestepped entirely, as only a duo can do. Abbott's playing occasionally recalls a handful of his predecessors (Frith, Kaiser, Rowe, Chadbourne, et al) in the guitar mangling tradition, but we are mostly exposed to his own rapidly developing voice on the instrument, further evidenced on his recent solo album, Zebra Wood, and the wonderful Lamp Chops album (bim-24). Dadge (fresh of a year of playing with the likes of Mats Gustafsson, Eugene Chadbourne, and Eric Chenaux) is in full kaleidoscopic mode, adding bags of junk and amplification to his drums & cymbals. Recorded by Brad Hawkins at the monthly Bug Incision concert series in the summer of 2009."-Bug Incision
