Taking a breather from indie supergroup Free Kitten, Sonic Youth's femme-mystere Kim Gordon created a distinctly new trio of spontaneous composition and prose here. Since reclaiming the electric guitar (her original instrument with SY) and developing a newfound post-Patty Waters free-vox technique, she enjoined her vision with the improvisational meta-talents of Ikue Mori (ex-drummer of no wave legends DNA) and DJ Olive (of the wizardly We). Together the trio hit the local boards throughout 1999 and created a unified concept of sound/energy dynamix. They recorded with engineer Wharton Tiers and mixmaster Jim O'Rourke for the first recording on SYR not by Sonic Youth proper. The results, which also feature the magic fingers of Cibo Matto's Yuka Honda on a track, are at once sensuous, elegant and completely blistering. This is truly the new illprovisation rising up from ground zero.
