1 of 2 sets of improvisation from our long-run Night of the Stickmen project. This has been a field of experimentation at every corner our musical path takes. Often in collaboration with wide variety of musicians, it reveals hidden desires we all have. Sometimes it emerges as floor-spread piles of cymbals, thick air of electronic drone, broken handmade acoustic instruments and the list goes on.
This time, its focus seems to be on real-time decomposition/composition of rhythmic structure.
The 1st set in collaboration with Japanese experimental rock trio Kukangendai whose very unique approach to rhythm and structure helped us push the concept beyond.
Recorded Live at Total Refreshment Centre. December 2017.
supported by 5 fans who also own “A Found History: Night of the Stickmen at TRC - 1st Set / BO NINGEN vs. Kukangendai”
What a fuckin record! Boris has gone from sludgy doom to drone to trippy psych to shimmery indie pop, but with NO they present the listener with a pretty straight crossover punk record! Pop it in in place of Anthrax one of these days and be amazed. Levrikon
