Description
This track is an edited rehearsal recording of Collapsible Shoulder minus our bass player Mike DuClos. That leaves Chris Cochrane on guitar, Brian Chase on drums and yours truly on analog synth and electronics (still no guitar due to shoulder injury). Chris and I cut and pasted a single 20 minute jam into this form for us to learn and play live. Haha. Next gig Oct. 15th.

Hah!
Good luck playing this live! This is one of those things where I listen to it and think, "I wish my brain worked like this." I dig the freedom and how much you guys are just into the music. The break at 2:26ish is a nice surprise.

Yeah - it will be a challenge live
Unfortunately we get very little rehearsal time together - but the other guys are real pros and I tend to practice at home a lot once I know we're doing.

Roaring
You know I'm so used to working on my stuff, which is fully digital, that it's great to hear real musicians, with real instruments, cut loose. Wish I could be there when you unleash this baby.

Thanks Steve
I'll record our show in October and post somewhere with a link. I'm enjoying this group where I get to play something new for me.

Complicated
You stick with that shoulder injury Bud. Every day is another step closer to being better and then it's just "something that happened to you once". In the meantime, excellent tunage. Very tight band of clearly talented musicians doing what they love. I had to re listen! As per Lisa, the break at 2:26 is tasty. Carry on, sir, carry on.

Chris and Brian are both pros
with long discographies. How I ended up here is a mystery to me - but I'm digging it. When I fell in February I immediately knew it was a life altering event. So far it's OK - though there are new complications. :)

Complicated
I appreciate your creative approach here - and getting a bit of insight on how it came (or is coming) about. I know I've been on those complicated tracks pictured a time or two.

this is wild! has all the energy of a who live performance during their peak years. the slow break is very cool in how it is such a contrast and could stand on its own.

Brian is a remarkable drummer
His day job is in the Brooklyn band The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. His primary work outside of that is very experimental. Collapsible Shoulder falls somewhere in between.

Questions
Controlled chaos!

So did the band take its name from your mishap?

And where is the Oct.15th gig at?

The band got it's name
two weeks before my accident. Weird right? I missed our first gig with the new name. We were just band members initials before that.
The Oct. 15th gig is at Trans-Pecos - but not yet listed on their site. However - there's a gig I'm doing on Oct.14th at Roulette that is worth catching. Billy Martin - Chris Cochrane - Kato Hideki and me are the band with two guests. One for each 45 minute improv.

General Admission
The Roulette is like six blocks from my Park Slope apartment. So - what the heck - I bought a ticket for the Oct 15th show.

What's the story?
I really like the mess of sounds that overlap one another in this wild commotion, but I want to know what it MEANS. You have such a great sense of how to keep all these jangly things cooking at the same time without anything getting totally burned. I admire the creative/inventive things that constantly go through your head. This is quite an intense track: not particularly easy to take, but still an intriguing listen.

Definitely all the way live
much more than a wild 4 chord jam!
i guess that's why it's "complicated"

Astounding drumming, right from the start...
And again, that nexus between groove and drone...

And yes, as Lisa points out, the break-from-Mars that transitions you into a whole new place...
