"Curtains up for a new power trio: bass player Massimo Pupillo ( Zu, Laniakea ), drummer Alexandre Babel ( Sudden Infant ) and Caspar Brotzmann on guitar. As the title Live At The Candy Bomber Studios, Vol.1 indicates, this album is the first cut from an inspired recording meeting. Raw energy with full focus; three instrumentalists, at the peak of their skills, blend noise rock, drone, and improvisation into two relentless, epic pieces.
The line-up consists of Massimo Pupillo, bass player in Zu, Laniakea, and countless other constellations and drummer Alexandre Babel who is a prolific player in the experimental/contemporary field (artistic director of Swiss percussion group Eklekto, member of Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin , and soloist who has performed with Otomo Yoshihide and Keiji Haino ) and a steady member of the noise band Sudden Infant. And last but not least there's Caspar Brotzmann on guitar who has gained high reputation as one of the most radical guitarists around, admired by acclaimed artists like Thurston Moore ("probably one of the best guitarists I've ever met!") and Stephen O'Malley. A powerful unit, recorded live in the studio by Ingo Krauss."-Karlrecords

• Show Bio for Caspar Brotzmann
"Caspar Brötzmann (born 13 December 1962) is an electric guitar player. He was born in Wuppertal, Germany.
While Brötzmann typically performs with the power trio lineup of Caspar Brötzmann Massaker (his early band), with guitar, bass guitar and drum set, he only uses rock and roll and heavy metal music as a basis for his music. Brötzmann's technique has been praised: "...his attack on the instrument - explosive, obstreperous, large scale, textural, timbral - asserts the material facts of string-pickup-amplifier more bluntly than anyone else currently involved in rock".
Brötzmann's father, Peter Brötzmann, is a free jazz saxophone player. They have recorded a duo album, Last Home."-Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caspar_Br%C3%B6tzmann)
