Phookie Nijjit + Nodoubt Fersure - [excerpt from second piece]

Full review to follow. Local "improvised bonanza" Audiopollination likes to mix and match musicians who have never played together, an idea that might have found its apotheosis in its "self-curation" project, where musicians program themselves into new, recombinant performance units. These performers who closed out the night chose to present themselves pseudonymously. When pressed on the reasons why, one of them (who seemed to be making some sort of Electric Sense) held up a mangled trombone that looked like a train had run over it and said, "you'd have to be a phookie nijjit to play this thing." Backed by some spindly-skronk guitar, it sounded a bit like a junkyard In a Silent Way as performed by a moose call.

[As always, you can listen to the whole night over at Audiopollination's bandcamp. The next Audiopollination, another night of self-curation, takes place Tuesday (October 14th) at Array Space.]
