Donkey
"Show"

CAT. #: ALP020

Hans Fjellestad - keyboards, electronics
Damon Holzborn - guitars, electronics

Show is a collection of live concert recordings that according to The Wire, "assumes the quality of aural graffiti, jagged hints and smeared traces of illicit communication between members of some clandestine network." Fjellestad and Holzborn take improvised electronic music into some new territory, creating what Signal to Noise calls "a new sonic horizon, and booga to the 'oh, electronic music! It's so Cold! so Unfeeling! Waah!' crowd, the excitement that the interchange of creativity and challenge these two are engaged in fairly leaps into your ear."

"...a new sonic horizon, and booga to the "oh, electronic music! It's so Cold! so Unfeeling! Waah!" crowd, the excitement that the interchange of creativity and challenge these two are engaged in fairly leaps into your ear."
- Mike Zimbouski, Signal to Noise (US)

"These guys demonstrate a sensitivity of expression that naturally is in intense demand among improvisers but not always present... Exciting! Turn the volume up!"
- Ingvar Loco Nordin, Sonoloco (Sweden)

"[Donkey] veer from the heady extremes of pure adrenaline noise to the more cerebral and chin stroking intellectual excersise that is improvisation at its most inventive."
- Cris Baldwin, Acid Attack Music (UK)

"With Donkey you get something tasty, elusive... probably the result of some divine accident at the factory. With one foot in Improv Jazz, the other in wild Electronica and at least its heels dragging in the furthest point left of early European Kraut Rock, Donkey make a music which borders on chaotic madness but never actually becomes isolated with its own obsessions. It manages to grate on the nerves with its kitten-on-Speed explorative nature while never alienating. It's rare you find music which so satisfyingly crosses genres, but this should equally appeal to both the Modern Improv Jazz fraternity and those into Trad Noise Industrial. Wild yet controlled, crazy yet somehow in possession of a knowledge beyond the ken of yer average man in the street, this is a much recommended."
- Antony Burnham, Metamorphic Journeyman (UK)

"The intensely industrial sound is a heavy improv audio feast... Show is quite possibly the best experimental album of the new millennium."
- J-Sin, Smother E-zine

"...electronic exploration, chittering, wobbling, shimmering jitters and abstractions, but in a playful wandering through some interesting sonic spaces... varied and engaging pieces for those with a penchant for the experimental & improvisational, as you would expect from Accretions [Records]."
- Jeremy Keens, Ampersand Etcetera (Australia)

"There are plenty of enlightening moments in these haunting and aggressive 'songs.'"
- Troy Johnson, SLAMM (San Diego)
