descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Almost Never, which features the first all-American lineup on the nuscope label, is perhaps clarinetist Ben Goldberg's most beautiful and sensuous disc. The disc, which was recorded at Northern California's OTR Studios by none other than Cookie Marenco, also features electric guitarist John Schott and Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, long-term partners of Goldberg's musical adventures. All three musicians play exquisitely on this disc.

According to Art Lange in the liner notes, "Each member of the trio emerges into the open in different situations; in this context these are not really 'solos' but constructive elements that define the characteristics of the surrounding space. Individually and together they piece together the outline of the music with an eye (and ear) for clarity of vision and measured proportion in design and detail. Even so, this music is deceptive, with a minimum of empty gesture and a seeming simplicity of shape that appears inevitable but is actually spontaneous and fluid."-Sam Prestianni, Jazziz Magazine


Artist Biographies:

"About Trevor Dunn

1968: born traversing a fine line between hippies and rednecks behind the redwood curtain. first musical affinities: the beach boys, blondie, cheap trick, kiss. first television: ultraman, speedracer, bugs bunny. first films: over the edge, the mouse and his child, snoopy come home, bedknobs & broomsticks. first books: zylpha keatly snyder's witches of worm, the velvet room and the headless cupid.

1977: began studies on clarinet

1981: began studies on electric bass and subsequently quit the clarinet as i realized that girls would now talk to me.

1986: the same year that Lynch's blue velvet and Slayer's reign in blood were released, graduated from EHS. the school's motto: "pigs live in litter, loggers live in pride". started a band called Mr. Bungle. then i got a job at shakey's pizza. began classical technique studies on the contrabass.

1990: graduated from humboldt state university after studying the likes of harry partch, iannis xenakis, alban berg, igor stravinksy, gustav mahler, js bach, you know, all the cats. Also performed Koussevitsky's Concerto for Double Bass with the HSO.

1992: first Mr. Bungle record released on Warner Bros. Moved to SF and two months later embarked on the first MB tour of the US. At the age of 24 I was one of the oldest people in the van. For the next eight years played lots of weddings and restaurants between tours with MB. Learned a lot about music playing with Connah, Goldberg, Schott, Kavee, Amendola, Greenlief, et al.

2000: relocated to Brooklyn, NYC.

Currently playing in various projects under the direction of John Zorn (Nova Quartet, Dreamers, Electric Masada, Aleph Trio). The Nels Cline Singers, Curtis Hasselbring's New Mellow Edwards, Melvins Lite, Endangered Blood, Tomahawk, The Darius Jones Quartet & Erik Friedlander's Bonebridge. I still have plans for my own bands: trio-convulsant, PROOF Readers and MadLove; and I continue to write music for independent films, practice long tones, pine over Daisy Lowe and drink shitty beer in heavy metal saloons."
