Andy Crespo has been the go-to bass player for sub-underground locals since time immemorial. Whether recording with mysterious free jazz units such as Gross, or the original Barn Owl (the trio with Matt Weston and Chris Cooper), or playing with one of the countless live bands he's been in, Crespo is a commandingly smoky, mysterious, and powerful presence. Feeding Tube is tickled pink to present Crespo's first solo vinyl - two side-long excursions of bass-generated sounds that'll roam your interior fields like a cloud of bees searching for nico-nectar. Considering Crespo's personal collecting policies, it's crazy that he conjured up such a berserk set of splattered electronics/strings/feedback, but the proof is in the pudding. And this pudding blazes. Maybe the best way to think of it is to imagine a large man's dream of what Billy Mure's Supersonic Guitars LPs might sound like if they were given a truly post-modern twist. That is some deep space, baby. As startling in it's way as Barre Phillips's Unaccompanied Barre (aka Journal Violone aka Basse Barre) must have been back in '69. So give the artist a cigarette. Maybe he'll share his coffee -Byron Coley, 2015. Cover art by Ted Lee. Plays at 45 RPM. Includes download code. Limited edition of 200.
