Biography

"Open For Kevin Drumm" is the cassette-only release (on Freedom From label) of Alan Licht's 1999 Tonic set with Tamio Shiraishi (ex-Fushitsusha) is another chaotic subset of Licht's universe, too far-out for pop but too noisy for improv, a twenty-odd minute snarl of grainy distortion with Shiraishi's nails-on-chalkboard sax and occasional rumblings in Japanese recalling earlier editions of Rudolph Grey's Blue Humans (arguably the first band to stake a claim to the uninhabited territory between no-wave rock and free jazz, and significantly the group where Licht cut his teeth). Fans of free noise, Sonic Youth-style power improv, Corpus Hermeticum and Licht completists will love it.
