Shalabi / St-Onge / Cote
Jane and The Magic Bananas
Released in: Canada
"A strange trio indeed! How to describe this terrific mumbo-combo? Let's try this: a free-exotica-rock band. This post-virtuosity improv trio seems made to change the rules of interplay. Who's soloing? Who's in charge of the beat? Who's leading? Where do they come from? From the land of Conan the Barbarian, I suppose... All in all, their set at DNA showed powerful and weird musical interactions, and a continuous three-dimensional stream of medieval consciousness which undergoes a permanent displacement from point 1 to point 3, from point 2 to point 1, etc. A magnificent example of individual spirits that connect with vector, Achilles vs. Hector, qualities. It was a sharp Frazetta Fantasy soundtrack. A must see, a must hear."-Julian Slitworky, Rolling Stone Magazine
