Talibam!, Brooklyn's favorite high-energy, spazzy, weirdo jazz, noise rock duo, have recruited a few friends and are set to release a brand new record, Boogie In the Breeze Blocks May 25 on the legendary ESP-Disk label, the former home of Albert Ayler, Sun Ra, The Godz, Pearls Before Swine, The Fugs, and so on. The duo of Kevin Shea and Matt Mottel are joined by Jon Irabagon (tenor sax), Peter Evans of Sparks (trumpet), guitarists Chris Forsyth from Peeesseye, Anders Nilson and Chin Chin’s Jeremy Wilms, and Mostly Other People Do the Killing’s Moppa Elliot on upright bass. With this large ensemble, Boogie In the Breeze Blocks "is a narrative earful as warped and wonderful as spicy pasta, fresh grapes and caramel crunch." Or simply put, like a Jolt Cola!
