The Puke Eaters
Y.M.I. Dead?

Vauva 06

7"
£6.99


Two new tracks of post-Godz aural confusion and homemade psych from these Finnish nuts that sometimes feature Chris Corsano. On Jan Anderzen of Kemialliset Ystavat’s label. “Two tracks by the Puke Eaters, the A side was originally conceived as a theme for an album dealing with Deihoma, the man who wandered inside "the Worm that ate the world" in order to slay it. Strictly Steen & Rusty, as inept as ever. B side has Rusty involved in the act of synthesizer desecration with some nameless slave. Steen Guru vocals were added later via the method of overdubbing.” - Ralf Normaali

Paul Dunmall/Chris Corsano
Identical Sunsets

ESP Disk 4058

LP
£6.99


Raging free jazz duo blat from saxophonist Paul Dunmall (here doubling on border pipes) and drummer Chris Corsano, marking Corsano’s first –fated! - appearance on ESP Disk. Following in the tradition of ESP’s first classic free jazz run, Identical Sunsets is an ass-blasting high energy side. The title track is a particular monster, with Dunmall’s ululating border pipes conjuring the ghost of Albert Ayler’s bagpipes with psychedelic overtones and raw folk passion. Corsano is, of course, amazing. One of the first releases from the revived ESP Disk that feels worthy of the label. Highly recommended. 

Tony Bevan/Chris Corsano/Dominic Lash
Monster Club

Foghorn Records FGCD-010

CD
£6.99


New self-released CD on saxophonist Tony Bevan’s label documenting a wild free jazz trio that pits Bevan on soprano, tenor and bass saxophones against drummer Chris Corsano and bassist Dominic Lash. This is an explosive set, one that owes more to the classic fire music modes of post-Coltrane improvisation than the dry stylings of the Steve Noble set. Bevan’s command of the instrument is staggering, blowing chunky, luminous lines that are full of mystery and atmosphere before cascading through the instrument’s most phantom registers, taking long, vocalised solos that push the extreme style of the Reverend Frank Wright into almost Urabe-esque territories. Bassist Lash blends beautifully with Bevan’s ferocious/melodic style while Corsano provides the bulk of the acceleration, pushing the group into the kind of aggressive vectors usually inaccessible to UK improvisers. Fantastic and highly recommended.
