Jazkamer "Art Breaker"

Jazkamer’s “Art Breaker” is 58 (!) tracks of rock and noise (Smalltown Superjazz 2008, but no info on their site). The CD lasts for 17 minutes, and that is just about enough. The musicians are Iver Sandøy, John Hegre and Lasse Marhaug. The cover is ultra creepy (I hate the Alien movies), but stylish, and is made by Håvard Gjelseth. The track titles are something else too, like ”Pure Phenomenology Is The Science Of Pure Consciousness”, “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely” and “Useful As A Form Of Employment For Economists” (Norwegian blogger Steinskog is working on the titles (in Norwegian)).
To tell you the truth, this is a lot of noise, but it is damned fun too! I suggest we blindfold the band and play the tracks at random. Tell us what track we are playing now! Hmm. It must be ”The Slaying Of A Beautiful Hypothesis By An Ugly Fact”, no no – wait - it’s “Democracy Is An Abuse Of Statistics”.
