Locus Solus (1983)


Originalmente pubblicato in un doppio album dalla Rift nel 1983, poi ripubblicato con tracce extra in Giappone nel 1990: i trio di rock sperimentale di Locus Solus sono stati la matrice da cui è successivamente nato il progetto “Painkiller”.
Con la partecipazione di Arto Lindsay, Anton Fier, Ikue Mori, Wayne Horvitz, Peter Blegvad, Christian Marclay, Whiz Kid e M.E. Miller, queste influenti registrazioni, sebbene di difficile ascolto, sono sicuramente ammirevoli per lo sperimentalismo che emerge da ogni solco. Esso va a concludere la prima serie di Game Pieces composti da Zorn in gioventù.

Originally released as a double album on Rift in 1983, then rereleased with extra tracks in Japan in 1990, the explorative rock trios of Locus Solus provided the blueprint for what was eventually to become Painkiller. Featuring pivotal Downtown luminaries Arto Lindsay (DNA, Ambitious Lovers), Anton Fier (Golden Palominos), Ikue Mori (DNA), Wayne Horvitz (Pigpen), Peter Blegvad (Slapp Happy, Art Bears), Christian Marclay, Whiz Kid and M.E. Miller, these influential recordings are as exciting today as all the other new crap on Tzadik, if not more so.
