|northern spy (usa) #ns 003 ep|
jooklo duo “the warrior” seven inch single record
- primitive power (4:23)
- fire liberation (5:26)
|november 2010 release ; now that’s what i’m talking about ... after being whispered about in the most hallowed of halls, the duo of virginia genta (whose recent rooftop duo set w/ chris corsano on 8mm was an out-and-out slayer) & david vanzan finally get a “mass-market” edition ...|
hot on the heels of gigs w/ sabu toyozumi & sonny simmons ... and a week-long run at the barbican in london (where they performed musical accompaniment to merce cunningham’s final piece, alongside takehisa kosugi, john paul jones [!?], and sonic youth) comes this devastating blast, equal parts ayler-lineage “fire music” and borbetomagus-styled carpet-bombing that’s as powerfully psychedelic as it gets ...
comes in nice screen-printed sleeve (c/o eli keszler’s rel studio) on some bonded stock, with a b/w insert ... one of the singles of the year afa my own sensibilities are concerned ; highly recommended !!!

not since albert ayler stalked the hamnar of stockholm and reverberated his fire music off the walls of les tenements has there been an avant-garde jazz saxophonist who can all out wail like virginia genta can. don’t let her calm presence fool you. nor should david vanzan’s taller stature lead to believe this is not an equal opportunity free jazz freak-out. from when their poles first were converged by the cosmic force in 1999, italy’s (with finnish godparents) jooklo duo has been winning hearts and brains worldwide through jaw-dropping performances and a series of limited edition releases keeping at bay ravenous fans only long enough to get to the next gig. now, for their first u.s. release, northern-spy records launches its own assault on an as yet unsuspecting public with the 7”, the warrior.
recorded october 11th, 2010, at troglosound home studio, it’s as compact and complex as a leather-bound book of esoterica ready to haul you off to the most hidden lands of universal energy.
