Borbetomagus – “Trent Belles Annees” – [Agaric Rtecords]
Thirty years of mind melting noise from the threesome known as Borbetomagus (celtic: worms). Recorded live at final stop on their 2009 European 30th anniversary tour in Montreuil, France, this 46 minute session is non stop free form havoc that takes no precaution in leaving carnage in its wake. Don Dietrich and Jim Sauter on Tenor Saxophone, with guitarist Donald Miller from the very start never let up as they blow away all that was built and constructed so carefully into a destructive wasteland. There is such an intimate yet volatile relationship amongst them, which might explain their exceptional communication. Listen closely through wave after wave of beautiful distortion and you just might hear the sharp biting tremors that resemble the soundtrack of your trenchant life. This may unapproachable for many, however it may also prove to an entry point for a new generation raised on the likes of metal and noise.
