Earlier this summer, Drew, Tim, Kyle and JK stopped by the compound midway through an east coast jaunt for a proper session at the First Church of Synthesis, laying down some of their trademark midwest mutant jazz between gigs on their way down to Savage Weekend. It’s no secret I absolutely adore Crazy Doberman’s brand of colony-mind lysergic improv, and following up last year’s brain-melting Buchla session for Not Quite Archaic, I was itching to string up a bunch of mics and capture the collective in their natural element.
‘Weight Testing On Rotten Load Bearings’ is the results of these sessions. With a full house of instruments at their disposal, the boys turn on, tune in, and zone out across two sides of dank crawl-space creepies and sinister fried jazz lurch.
