Yeah yeah, you say....
another Jean-Francois Pauvros album. Well, have a gander at the line up here and think again. While this is Pauvros' album in name, these warped sessions are the product of three distinct maverick sensibilities beyond one-time Catalogue member and latter day Keiji Haino sparring partner Pauvros': Arto Lindsay (DNA), Ted Milton (Blurt) and Terry Day (Alterations), with Arto's scribble scrabble guitar vocabulary seamlessly entwined within Paurvos' prickly, spindly string extensions as Milton and Day engage in a disjointed roundelay of sax splat and loonily declamatory vocalese. Sick, touched-in-the-head sounding stuff and a real high point in Nato Record's roster of curiosities.

I requested this one on an earlier post of one of Pauvros' albums and then it appeared here 3 days later. Thank you for your trouble.

Pauvros is new to me. I clearly have some catching up to do. Astounded by what I've heard of him on your site. Delicacy, ferocity ... mathematics ... And I have loved Arto's atonal rhythmic clang since DNA and it sounds great here. The "vocalese" is going to take little wearing in, but I think I'll come around to it after a couple of listens. Thanks again.
