Artist: Merzbow, Gustafsson, Pándi (w Moore) EAN 13 (CD): 5060197760281 Cat. No. (CD): RNR030

A sonic assault of epic proportions, Cuts blends the bombast of Merzbow’s grinding white noise barrages with Balazs Pandi’s thunderous pulse on the kit and Mats Gustafsson’s ferocious abandon on baritone sax and clarinet mixed with live electronics, bringing to mind a marriage of Lou Reed’s Metal Machine Music and Coltrane’s Interstellar Space, with touches of Sonic Youth’s sonic mayhem thrown in for good measure.

Masami Akita : noise electronics
Mats Gustafsson : baritone sax & G-clarinet, live electronics
Balázs Pándi : drums, percussion

1. evil knives. lines.
2. deep lines. cuts.
3. the fear too. invisible.
4. like razor blades in the dark.
5. like me. like you.
