“Sonic Youth collaborator meets Swedish avant-jazzers. Paired with Shinjuku Crawl, and recorded with ex-Ground Zero guitarist Otomo Yoshihide, Shinjuku Growl was recorded live in 2008 in Tokyo, where sometime Sonic Youth/Wilco producer Jim O’Rourke now lives. O’Rourke like Thurston Moore, is one of those who has built a bridges between mainstream rock and free jazz and improv. Here, on tracks like “Half A Dog Can`t Even Take A Shit” and “I Can`t My Mouth Is Already Full”, his guitars rise to a whining crest of feedback assent alongside Mats Gustafsson of The Thing’s sneezing, snuffling sax as the players work up to a hurricane of unified, joyful noise. A great homage to ’60s pioneers and, over 40 years on, still very much the New Thing” (**** David Stubbs, Uncut Magazine)
