ZOG - "Thee First Commandment Of ZOG" (Year Zero records YEAR038) 2016

Free improvised Jazz/Noise Rock from deepest France. Featuring former Electric Buttocks anchorman, Christophe Medina on drums and vocals, Blind Man Walking Phil Allison on Tenor Saxophone, erstwhile 'Outsider' Nadine Aleman, knob twiddling on the Korg MS10, and Sampler, with Jon Zchivago clawing his own raw path on,what can only be described as a, Bass Guitar.
All music is improvised in one take,with no rehearsals or discussion beforehand,and only the minimum of editing afterwards. Like a Dogma 95 for music.
ZOG channels every dead or dying musician's soul from the last 60 years of popular music, as if remote viewed from one of the plusher corners of purgatory. If this doesn't excite you, you're dead already.
For terrestrial references, think Archie Shepp fronting Can's better half of Suzuki and Liebezeit , with a dash of Hawkwind, and Jean Jacques Burnel gene spliced with Bootsy Collins; a sort of funkier version of John Zorn's Painkiller without the boring dub bits. 

PS...ZOG is avaiable for gigs,festivals,bar mitzvah's and children's partys. Leave any possible leads in the comments section.

If I ever were put in charge of getting the music for a children's party, this sounds like the band I'd hire. The adults would probably be looking all stupid but I bet the kids would get it.

Newly single,I went on a date last week to a gig by Zu (good group). I played her some ZOG.....she didn't like it and said it lacked emotion,and was purely cerebral!?.....I insisted it was the sound of Joy.....she didn't agree.Thats why kids would get it!
My date left three tunes into the gig saying it was 'too Loud'!?...I stayed......Next!
