Merde sur la Mere - Pure Clasic

Written by
Published in Press Releases
I’ve come to the conclusion that there is some pretty crazy stuff coming out of Eastern Europe. First there was Rational Diet, then Ne Zhdali, and now Merde sur le Mere. From the name of this Croatian band and its album cover, my conclusion could be taken literally. Once you get past Merde sur le Mere’s brashness, you end up with some of the wildest experimental / free jazz sounds on the far side of John Zorn. Pure Clasic is a unrelenting barrage of sounds. In describing the music, it is tempting
