A magnificent improv recording from 1972, captured on cassette & processed with special ops recently, the title is from a poem by Paul Celan, who committed suicide long before he heard this, sadly. No lyrics, but his poem is embodied in the track.


released September 18, 2018

This is some of the best playing by these individual stellar musicians, all at the drop of a hat after the rabbits magically escaped. When you can hear him, VON LMO is playing drums like no other. Rodentius Grok grinds his guitar with wah wah wonderment, mixing funk & jazz in a John McLaughlin style. Sal Maida of multiple fame from more popular groups, makes a guest dis-appearance, as he has never heard some of his best playing. Otto von Ruggins can be heard in his pre-synth days giving it his all on the Hammond Organ with riffs that begged to be played to by all. Finally, a bonus track, 'Flute Cake', includes John Capelli on drums, Jon Stevens on flute, Grok flying on guitar & Otto on organ. This is precious found material to destroy brain cells to!

First, you have VON LMO actually heard on drums - very rare and a must listen to. Then Marilyn improvises lyrics - another seeming creative first & Otto von Ruggins stars on Synth. We put this group idea together @ the original World Trade Center's Observation Deck. Elliot Sewell joined us on keyboards for the improvisation. A video can be found on Youtube @ www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2w_noORI0g ... more
