Ich Bin N!ntendo & Gustafsson, Mats – “Ich Bin N!ntendo & Mats Gustafsson” – [Va Fongool]

Raging rompin-thronkin headache jazz for underground inebriated pub creep rabble rousing.

The Gustafsson sax lion roars just as mightily as he ever did, but is seriously set at odds here against the gang of hippos that is Ich Bin N!ntendo. Winther’s thwanged and frayed guitar gutting is bent and bowed beyond belief while Johansen clamors and crashes around the drums as any ten ton animal would. Nergaard sets himself firmly and heavily in the center, keeping the savage beasts from tearing each other apart. But of course the tension breaks and they gnash and gnaw into one another in a bloody fit of multi-meter time smashing. It seems the hippos have taken control when Mats tears out from under the hubbub for one final scuffle.

On the flip side only Winther remains, hobbling about in a drunken stupor after their barroom brawl. Johansen jumps out and signal a start to their liqour soaked victory march, slogging in soggy trousers out through sludge and slime littered alleyways where they black out amidst the garbage. Yet again, they come to and begin the battle all over again, with full primal fury and mind deadening ritual.
