The German Horse

2-CD Set

Ictus 505

Eugene Chadbourne, Andrea Centazzo

505fr

...I went and practiced guitar on the Tiber.... Then I went to a phone center and called Centazzo in Udine. "Chatterbox? Where are you man?" he shouted somewhat frantically. "I need your ass to be on the border of Yugoslavia." One gig was in a disco on the island of Grado. A German whore came on to me.
I had been drinking wine, beer and champagne and playing weird electric guitar solos all night. Luckily an old man that looked like Raymond Massey trying to be Boris Karloff in the film of Arsenic and Old Lace stole her away from me... (excerpt from album's liner notes by Eugene Chadbourne)

Review

Noise, distortion, acoustic and electric guitar fragments, rubbings, balloons, from minimal to explosive moments. I like the way they push each other, while having a consistent dialogue that is intricate yet free.  (BLG, Downtown Music Gallery)
