1. The ZZZ’s (live at the Jellyfish Brother’s crib, Miami FLA)
I went down to play a solo gig in Mami during Art Basel and the next morning I’m having Cubano breakfast with Rat Bastard. We’re gonna do a secret noise show in a warehouse that night and when I walk out on the street to lick some sunrays this kid comes up to me and sez he’s the son of David Amram (jazz bop poet pianist who pal’d around with Kerouac) and he’s touring around with a Japanese girl trio and they’re looking for a gig. I say “hold on”, and I fetch Rat and he meets them and they say “we are noise group” and he sez “be at the warehouse at midnight and you can play” and they do and they are AMAZING. A cross between Gong and Teenage jesus. I haven’t stood there so enjoyingly stunned in front of a band since maybe seeing Afri Rampo (also Japanese girl noise) tear shit up when they first came over ten years ago.
Belo pin, mestre! Amanhã, em mais uma estreia nacional, as japonesas ZZZ’s tocam no Armazém do Chá. Tão bom!!
