Album Review

New Blockaders, The – “Das Zerstoren, Zum Gebaren ” – [Blossoming Noise]

cinder   3/6/2008   A Library, CD

Rumored as their last live performance, this was
recorded at the ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas
festival in 2006. From the UK and together since
1982! Along for the ride is Damion Romero, Joke Lanz
and Dave Phillips. The 49 minute piece starts off as
various sputters and feedbacks, rebounding off open
air. Almost ten minutes in, the sound of terror
begins. Warbling old-man wales, crushing waves of
electronics, metal-wall sounding scrapes. Images of
trains and huge industrial machines crunching and
grinding along. Squirbles and squarbles galore.
Never giving up the whole time. Great!
