Jane & The Magik Bananas

Inscrutable Intentions (LP)

Label: Unrock

Format: LP

Genre: Experimental

In stock


After a long hiatus the noisy and most telepathic Montreal impro trio Jane & The Magik Bananas, led by Sam Shalabi (Land Of Kush, Karkhana, Dwarfs Of East Agouza) returned with a shifted focus exploring rhythm in a global sense. Live compositional practice, with rhythm and polyrhythm as the structuring principle, lead the group to different kinds of Western/non-Western tuning and micro tonality. In a certain way they play in the Western tradition of Ornette Coleman's Prime Time Band, Harry Partch, and Captain Beefheart. Various "world music" traditions boiled together in the groovy crucible of improvisation. An album that will certainly delight friends of the Dwarfs Of East Agouza. Personnel: Michel F Cote - drums, amplified percussion, feedback; Alexandre St-Onge - electric bass, electronics, voice; Sam Shalabi - electric guitar. Limited edition released; part of Unrock's Saraswati Series.
