The first Borbetomagus, an unprecedented release of extreme free/punk improvisation and sound from the trio of Jim Sauter (reeds), Don Dietrich (reeds) and Donald Miller (guitar).

White Album

Borbetomagus: White Album (Agaric)
Label: Agaric    
Released in: USA    

"The trio of Jim Sauter (reeds), Don Dietrich (reeds) and Donald Miller (guitar) are practically an American institution at this point. For the better part of 2 decades they have raised the mantle on intense improvisational sound parameters into one of the most unique sound configurations heard on planet earth. Heavy noise, deeply coiled feedback manipulation, hair-raising electronic squeal & the ultimate in air propulsion explosiveness, all initiated by humans. Pretty much every home could use at least one Borbetomagus recording; this CD is a reissue of their debut album from 1980, with the addition of Brian Doherty on electronics. With a previously unreleased track."
