1983 2LP Original Pressed On Quiex Type Pure Purple Virgin Vinyl. Shrink Wrap Intact With Rare Yellow Hype Sticker. Both LPs Appear New, Unplayed. “This Captures Over An Hour's Worth Of John Zorn's Search For The Improvised Song Form. Several Lineups From 1983 Are Documented Here. The First Eight Tracks Feature Zorn With Christian Marclay Spinning And Peter Blegvad Speaking. The Text Is Unremarkable (For Example, Honey-Cab's "...Tell Her Everything I Know/ In Ink As Black As Carbon/ On Paper White As Snow"), But Blegvad's Sonorous Delivery Works Well With The Chaos That The Other Two Musicians Spit And Spin Out, Combining Into Tides Of Noisy Mischief. Tracks 9-15 Find Zorn With Arto Lindsay Providing Lyrics And Guitar, And Anton Fier On Drums. Zorn Squawks And Spurts An Array Of Sounds, From Birdcall To Babydoll. M.E. Miller Replaces Fier On Drums For The Next Set, Which Features A Driving Rock Beat. This Is Followed By Eight Pieces From Zorn, Wayne Horvitz, And Ikue Mori. The Final Fifth Of The Album Captures The Walloping Interplay Of Zorn, Miller, And Turntablist Whiz Kid. Overall, An Album Of Short, Angular, Experimental Energy Tracks.” Joslyn Lane, AMG. more

Sealed 1987 Original. And We Do Mean Original In Every Sense Of The Word. “Using His "File Card" Technique To Create The Title Piece "Spillane" (Whereby Musical Ideas Written On Note Cards Form The Basis For Discreet Sound Blocks Arranged By Way Of A Unifying Theme), John Zorn Forges An Impressionistic Narrative Out Of Stretches Of Live-Music Jazz, Blues, Country, Lounge, Thrash, Etc., And A Variety Of Samples And Spoken Dialogue Inspired By Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer Detective Novels (Recited By John Lurie). Like He Did On His Ennio Morricone Tribute The Big Gundown, Here Zorn Blends A Disparate Array Of Sound Sketches Into A Pleasing, If Not Especially Determinate Or Always Logical Whole. Clarity Aside, "Spillane" Comes Off As An Exciting And Atmospheric Evocation Of The Clipped Prose, Seedy Dives, And Back Alleys Found In Hard-Boiled Spillane Books Like Kiss Me, Deadly. Sticking To The Disc's Tribute Theme, Zorn Uses Japanese Actor Yujiro Ishihara As The Inspiration For "Forbidden Fruit." Working With The Kronos Quartet, Turntablist Christian Marclay, And Japanese Vocalist Ohta Hiromi, Zorn Concocts An Exotically Frenetic, Atonal Cut-Up Piece To Evoke The Actor's Films From The '50s. And Bringing Things Back Home, So To Speak, Zorn Features Texas Blues Guitarist Albert Collins On The Lengthy And Slightly Abstract Blues Jam "Two Lane Highway." Helping "The Iceman" Out Are Organist Big John Patton, Bassist Melvin Gibbs, And Drummer Ronald Shannon Jackson, Among Others. In Addition To These Veterans Of Past Zorn Recordings, The Likes Of Keyboard Player Anthony Coleman, Guitarist Bill Frisell, And Drummer Bobby Previte Contribute To The Spillane Disc As Well. Spillane Is Not Only One Of The Highlights In Zorn's Catalog, But Also Makes For A Fine Introduction To The Composer's Vast Body Of Work.” – Stephen Cook, All Music Guide more
