Much anticipated second full length by the long running duo of Mick Flower (Vibracathedral Orchestra, Sunroof, Michael Flower Band) and Chris Corsano (Flaherty/Corsano, Jandek, Bjork, Sunburned). In the couple of years since their debut "The Radiant Mirror" (Textile), the duo has toured and recorded frequently, expanding their range to include a mind-boggling array of free sound. "I, Brute Force" kicks off the record with their signature - one of the most original sounds in rock/free/whatever music - the electrifying sound of Flower's virtuosic, heavily amplified Japan Banjo (also known as a Shaahi Baaja) over Corsano's free-wheeling percussion. There's really nothing else like it. Other tracks show off subtle improv moves, with both players using extended techniques to generate a wide range of unusual sounds. Corsano's technical mastery is almost without peer in his generation (Alex Neilson, maybe) - his ability to take the lessons of nearly 5 decades of free playing and extend them into new ranges is startling and exciting. Rather than play backup, Chris meets Mick's strings and organ head-on with his own drum-bowing, cello, and circular breathing-fired melodica. Cover by NY illustrator/comic artist Alex Holden. CD is in Digipak, 2xLP in full color gatefold. Cut by John Golden, pressed at RTI. Side 4 (tracks 6-8) is exclusive to the double vinyl!!!!
