Talking Issue by Tony Conrad
Released: May 2012
Label: Dais Records
Hurtling in from the wilder horizons of the avant-music landscape comes this intriguing release from the violin-based imaginations of Tony Conrad and ex-Throbbing Gristle member Genesis Breyer P-Orridge. Hints of outsider rock, modern classical and drone intrude -- but it's too heavily indebted to pulse and improvisation to totally boot it from the free-jazz tent. Recorded at a live date in Brooklyn, the album's percussion is handled by Morrison Edley; though his playing throbs aplenty, it stays out of the way of the two legends, both of whom scrape, shimmy and whip up a free-improv storm.
