The ultimate garage mauling.

It's no surprise that Thurston Moore digs these two combos deeply, providing a rabidly enthusiastic sleeve endorsement. Norway's Cato Salsa Experience are indeed nothing of the sort: instead, they rawk with overloaded guitars like mangled girders, compressed into intricate gargoyle gobbets. Their collaboration with Scandinavian free jazz mayhem countrymen The Thing, plus blurting Stateside hornman Joe McPhee results in a beautifully excessive cataclysm, as this Antichrist assemblage contorts tunes by PJ Harvey, James Blood Ulmer and The Cramps, also giving Louie, Louie its ultimate garage mauling.
