SEA DONKEYS - LIVE AT S.S. MARIE ANTOINETTE (LP)


"Live LP from this new label and group out of Seattle and featuring one of the brains These guys previously had an LP available via the Sun City Girls' Abduction label but this is their best yet, a divinely ragged live blast that combines a more garage rocking taking on the communal folk breakdowns of The Cherry Blossoms with killer Shaggs/Godz style drum violence, drunk choir vocals and the kinda fidelity that makes it all sound like a great VU Bootleg. There are inspired covers of material like "It's A Rainy Day" by Faust and Albert Ayler's "Ghosts" (which wins out over countless lame indie free jazz versions by re-staging it as a melancholy avant rock dirge as played by Don Van Vliet and the Maher Shalal Has Baz orchestra) and the oblivion and beautiful melodic chord solos." (label info) Limited edition of 400 copies.
