sample the album:
"Taco Bells have been tearing up their homeland of Finland & the rest of Europe for some time now...pushing their Albert Ayler inspired sound upon suspecting and unsuspecting crowds. Their energy and ferocity is unparalleled, their telepathic communication is seamless & their sound is pure ecstatic joy.
Taco Bells have released a handful of LPs as well as multiple tapes since 2007 that find them challenging free jazz & sound...all three musicians have also made names for themselves across Europe in other groups such as Mohel, Kemialliset Ystavat, Rauhan Orkesteri & Jooklo Finnish Quartet among others. and Taco Bells have also been known for adding guest musicians live & on recordings, from Dylan Nyoukis, Martin Kuchen, Mette Rasmussen & Stuart Arnot among others. For this unbelievably special release Taco Bells features an incredible guest in Pekka Airaksinen (Finnish avant music pioneer, "One Point Music," THE SPERM, etc).
