Features and Reviews 75 Or Less vs. The Ed Kemper Trio
5/8/2003Chip The Ed Kemper Trio - How to Win a Sword Fight (Yawn Records) [mp3, mp3] [upcoming shows] Noisy, basement rock that sounds like something Steve Albini would have produced, and AmRep or Touch & Go would have released, back in '91. It's bottled-up nervous energy, low-end skronk rock with bludgeoning guitars, a mildly jazzy rhythm section and very little sign of melody. It's the musical equivalent of a late night back alley rumble where somebody most definitely is going to get hurt. Duck or you might end up with a shiner. - chip
