Marc Ribot Ceramic Dog at the Bimhuis Amsterdam, Netherlands 2013
1. chien de faience: expression: frozen with emotion, as in the perfectly still moment before a fight breaks out.
2. Ultimate kitsch object.
3. A free/punk/funk/experimental/psychedelic/post electronica collective,
featuring Marc Ribot (cubanos postizos, john zorn, tom waits, etc etc), plus two of the best young players on the new york/california underground improv/experimental rock scene,Shahzad Ismaily – bass/electronics (Will Oldham, Secret Chiefs 3, Jolie Holland, Yoko Ono) and Ches Smith – drums (Xiu Xiu, Good for Cows, Secret Chiefs 3)
4. Not a ‘project’: a real band.
“Marc Ribot’s new power trio, filled out by the remarkable versatile rhythm team of bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smith, is his rawest band in ages.”
