This band, Peter Brotzmann on saxophone and taragot, Toshinori Kondo on electronic trumpet, William Parker on bass and Hamid Drake on drums, is the Die Like a Dog Quartet (the Trio is all minus Kondo). Ferocious, reaching, charged sounds mutating before your ears. It is not background music, it is consuming and you are the one being consumed. Consumed by possibilities, not eventualities. These sounds do not lie; they are the truth and you can not be neutral. In my mind this is what The Revolution sounds like; the New Dawn’s beautiful pangs of birth. Die Like a Dog, comrades. All the fucking way.
