Painkiller : 50th Birthday Celebration Volume Twelve

Released Sep 2005 - cd time - 43:16
Recorded Sept. 06, 2003 @ The Tonic, NY.
A powerful and breathtaking meeting of masters. With the tight rhythm section of Laswell and Drake, who have a long history working together in a variety of bands and contexts, and the empathetic insanity of Patton and Zorn, this set was as much of a surprise to the musicians as it was to the pumped up crowd that were lucky enough to hear it that night. Although billed as Painkiller, this once in a lifetime unit was really something completely different. At times hilarious, exhilarating, outrageous and transcendent, this is music only the New American Underground could create. East Coast meets West Coast meets Midwest: New York, California and Chicago come together in this twisted, funky improviser’s paradise.

Bill Laswell: Bass
John Zorn: Saxophone
Hamid Drake: Drums
Special Guest
Mike Patton: Voice

Nice quality bootleg. I've got a couple nice concerts of Zorn from it the past. One was Masada, the other a tribute to Derek Bailey featuring Lasswell and Patton

I've also notice that I have Derek Bailey with John Zorn at the Tonic 15/12/01

I just added a bunch more Zorn albums to my list. Mostly Filmworks stuff.
Will update shortly as my site (not this blog) appears to be down at the moment.

Thanks. Got one of the pk cd's at home here. Hope this one's as good.

A bit different – less focused or abrasive, in my opinion – from what I knew of PAIN KILLER – Guts of a Virgin/Buried Secrets – but cool nonetheless. Thanx H.!
