The musicians on Garage Concréte
may comprise the world’s oldest garage band. Playing on and off since
1979 (?) Ned Judy (keyboards), Larry Melton (bass) and Mark Merella (percussion)
bring a level of telepathy to their improvisations. This disc focuses on the
more abstract of their collaborations with experiments in electronics, soundscapes,
looping and free-jazz blowouts. Owing as much to Stockhausen as the wild abandon
of a high school garage band Garage Concréte is heady without being pretentious.
Special guest David Goodrich, another long time cohort, provides eerie guitar
work on two tracks.
