descriptions, reviews, &c.

"One year in the making, this is the 2nd full-length CD from Dynamite Club! 17 new songs. Where Dynamite Club's first album was an excercise in noise, claustrophobia and chaos, this is Dynamite Club's "studio" album - crystal clear, bright, tight and totally unpredictable - showcasing musical virtuosity and maybe even sincerety. Certainly not what you would expect, and unlike anything you have ever heard before. Sure to shock and delight music lovers of all walks. It's "DEEEEP"!

Dynamite Club was formed in 2001 in NYC by guitarist/ vocalist Kentaro Saito (Tokyo) & drummer/vocalist Mike Pride (Brooklyn). The current bassist, Evan Lipson is the bands 8th (previous bass players have quit, been fired, disappeared and, notoriously and honestly, fallen off a cliff in Taiwan). Somehow, through all of these changes in bass personnel, Dynamite Club has maintained its identity as one of the most outrageous, energetic and unique rock bands to come out of the florid NY & Tokyo scenes.Dynamite Club has 2 full length CDs out: The Legend Of Tiger Mask (2002 Big Sleep Records) & It's Deeper Than Most People Actually Think (2004 Funhole Records); 1 CDep: "S" (2004 Funhole Records); and is on 4 compilations that they know of. Dynamite Club even put out a VHS (Live @ Knitt (2002 Mo Discount Video)) back when people knew what that was.

Dynamite Club's new CD Fusion Era comes out on Caminante Recordings in the Fall of 2008. Fusion Era was produced by Pride and Saito with hardcore producer/ engineer legend Don Fury (Helmet, Quicksand, Victory Records artists, 108, MDC, etc.) whom Pride met while working with MDC from 2002-2005. Fusion Era is Dynamite

Dynamite Club have toured the US dozens of times, Japan and Taiwan, Europe and Australia and enjoy an energetic and enthusiastic fan base throughout.Dynamite Club have reached both the top (#5) and bottom of CMJ charts.Club's most ferocious and honest record yet. Where their previous albums were deep on studio experimentation & destruction, Fusion Era is conceived as a record for the fans who love to come out and see Dynamite Club play live - kicking out the jams faster, harder and with more energy as eachyearpasses-andcontainsabsolutelynostudiotrickery, very few overdubs (only two, in fact), and at under 20 mins. is endlessly listenable, exciting and surprising.

The members of Dynamite Club have played with or are in the following bands: Haino Keiji, MDC (millions of dead cops), Ruins, Fast n Bul- bous, Anthony Braxton/Sonny Simmons Sexet, John Zorn, Aarktica, PERIOD, Secret Chiefs 3, Whoopie Pie, Otomo Yoshihide,NelsCline,TrevorDunn,FROMBACTERIATO BOYS & many more.

For Dynamite Club, the future holds a full 6-8 week North American tour in the fall of 2008. Tours in Europe, Taiwan and Japan will follow.The band will also be presented in some limited engagements as a duo (bassist Lipson joining vocalist/ drummer Pride) throughout the year as guitarist Saito resides in Tokyo with his family most of the time, recently."-Dynamite Club

"Nate Wooley was born in 1974 in Clatskanie, Oregon, a town of 2,000 people in the timber country of the Pacific Northwestern corner of the U.S. He began playing trumpet professionally with his father, a big band saxophonist, at the age of 13. His time in Oregon, a place of relative quiet and slow time reference, instilled in Nate a musical aesthetic that has informed all of his music making for the past 20 years, but in no situation more than his solo trumpet performances.

Nate moved to New York in 2001, and has since become one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. He has performed regularly with such icons as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Eliane Radigue, Ken Vandermark, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada, as well as being a collaborator with some of the brightest lights of his generation like Chris Corsano, C. Spencer Yeh, Peter Evans, and Mary Halvorson.

Wooley's solo playing has often been cited as being a part of an international revolution in improvised trumpet. Along with Peter Evans and Greg Kelley, Wooley is considered one of the leading lights of the American movement to redefine the physical boundaries of the horn, as well as demolishing the way trumpet is perceived in a historical context still overshadowed by Louis Armstrong. A combination of vocalization, extreme extended technique, noise and drone aesthetics, amplification and feedback, and compositional rigor has led one reviewer to call his solo recordings "exquisitely hostile".

In the past three years, Wooley has been gathering international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language. Time Out New York has called him "an iconoclastic trumpeter", and Downbeat's Jazz Musician of the Year, Dave Douglas has said, "Nate Wooley is one of the most interesting and unusual trumpet players living today, and that is without hyperbole". His work has been featured at the SWR JazzNow stage at Donaueschingen, the WRO Media Arts Biennial in Poland, Kongsberg, North Sea, Music Unlimited, and Copenhagen Jazz Festivals, and the New York New Darmstadt Festivals. In 2011 he was an artist in residence at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, NY and Cafe Oto in London, England. In 2013 he performed at the Walker Art Center as a featured solo artist.

Nate is the curator of the Database of Recorded American Music (www.dramonline.org) and the editor-in-chief of their online quarterly journal Sound American (www.soundamerican.org) both of which are dedicated to broadening the definition of American music through their online presence and the physical distribution of music through Sound American Records. He also runs Pleasure of the Text which releases music by composers of experimental music at the beginnings of their careers in rough and ready mediums."
