A maelstrom of clanging, shrieking guitar, relentless frenetic drum savagery and inhuman vocals. Shrimp, in direct contrast to the weakness implied by its moniker, is the sonic equivalent of being trapped within a chitinous storm of pincers and consists of a thirty minute studio onslaught and a live recording, featuring additional electronic noise.
A one off (for now) collaborative entity comprising of Jon O’Neill (The Smokin’ Coconuts, The Shits, Skronk et al), Chris Watson (Snakes Don’t Belong in Alaska, Forest Mourning), James Watts (Plague Rider, Lovely Wife, Lump Hammer et al),Rob Woodcock (Plate Maker, Fret!) and Ryosuke Kiyasu (Sete Star Sept, Fushitsusha, Kiyasu Orchestra et al); Shrimp was formed to perform as part of the bill at Ryosuke’s solo Old Police House gig and was subsequently recorded at First Avenue Studios, committing the same intensity to a full studio set up. Both recordings show the band at full free grind force for the duration, with no stops and little respite beyond the undulations of the improvisation.
