The Electric Noise Twist

Shrill and bass-heavy industrial/jazz from Markus Kneubühler and Alex Buess (both of 16-17, the latter also of God, ICE and Phantom City), and also a young Christoph Fringeli. The following words are pilfered from this EST review archive: “For me at least, this label helps to define a new genre. This album, recorded in 1989 by a trio consisting of label supremos Christoph Fringeli and Alex Buess, along with Markus Knuhbühler, marks an angular collision of jazz, rock and hardbeat music, if such a thing can be imagined.

Shrill and bass-heavy industrial/jazz from Markus Kneubühler and Alex Buess (both of 16-17, the latter also of God, ICE and Phantom City), and also a young Christoph Fringeli. The following words are pilfered from this EST review archive: “For me at least, this label helps to define a new genre. This album, recorded in 1989 by a trio consisting of label supremos Christoph Fringeli and Alex Buess, along with Markus Knuhbühler, marks an angular collision of jazz, rock and hardbeat music, if such a thing can be imagined. If industrial jazz didn’t exist before, then it does now! Heart-pumping drumbeats underlie fuzzy blares of noise, mixing influences from rock bass through to screaming jazz sax. The best moment comes with Who the fuck are you and what are you doing in my image track? which mixes the noise, drums and almost John Zorn-styled sax very well. Some of the other tracks either lack a powerful enough or fast enough beat to really shift things along, or suffer from the general shapelessness that plagues a lot of improvised jazz. The idea’s a great one: blaring sax and/or clarinet across a powerful boombeat sounds great, but this album really only has the noise without the get-up-and-go to propel it forward quickly enough. Interesting stuff which is worth a listen, even if it doesn’t quite reach the target it seems to have set itself. ENT are hoping to start playing live extensively this year.” « hide
