I Said No Doctors! is a double-LP compilation of the most groundbreaking artists of current and past decades who have redefined sound by creating and destroying musical instruments to fit a specific sonic character and method of music-making.
Throughout this audio journey we hear Silver Apples' Simeon Coxe combining bench oscillators, sound filters, telegraph keys and radio parts into one of the first electronic instruments, David Grubbs (Gastr-del Sol, Bastro, Squirrel Bait, The Red Crayola) playing an alligator-clip prepared guitar, Markus Popp's Oval Process software, Indonesian noise band Senyawa playing a modified Javanese farm plough, Dan Deacon using MIDI to generate an atonal barrage of pin-point notes from an acoustic grand piano, Jad Fair's custom guitar with the neck is attached to the body with a system of rubber bands allowing dramatic bends, Bismuth featuring Yuri Landman, who has built guitars for Thurston Moore and Lee Renaldo of Sonic Youth as well as Ciat Lonbarde's Peter B playing the Deerhorn synthesizer.
The compilation is curated by Dymaxion Groove founder Tom Tolleson who plays a modified Fender Jazzmaster with a ¾ ratio of separate playable strings over two pickups on the album as well. I Said No Doctors! is a celebration of sound and artistry beyond the range provided by standard musical instruments. Pressed as a 180-gram 2LP-set with download.
