Imagine an immediate/permanent global blackout: no TV, computers, light bulbs, AMPS. Severed from the electric mainline, a lot of bands would break up (or suck). But not Ettrick. The San Franciscan saxophone/drums duo need nothing but their own breath/blood and your bored ears to wreak consummate audial carnage. This 3 inch is brutal proof. Documenting a desperate session of their free-jazz war at the last stop on their October ’06 U.S. tour, Sudden Arrhythmic Death Vol. 2 morphs from skittering, sticks-on-steel heartbeat clatter to harrowing/hemorrhaging sax chaos incantations before finally mounting to a black death apocalypse of possessed percussion immolation. Far, far, FAR beyond driven. Full-length LP forthcoming on NNF shortly. Stenciled CDRs in Mayan-tile encrusted mini-jewel cases with color-printed wraparound covers (plus a quote from the Popul Vuh). Hand-numbered edition of 100.
