Hollywood Squaretet – Tet Offensive Gulcher Records GULCH603
OK… this is one for real musos. Hollywood Squaretet is a freejazz trio – probably the best I’ve come across for many a long year. You’ll either love it or hate it. I love it. It’s generally very difficult to accurately describe any type of music other than by comparison – in this case it would be impossible. So here’s the best comparison I can make. ‘It’s Bush Music.’ And if you don’t know what this means, approach your nearest sad loser music freak and borrow Captain Beefheart’s ‘Troutmask Replica’ LP and listen to the sublime ‘Hair Pie Bake1.’ This has to be the model for Hollywood Squaretet’s madness. And they do a fucking good job of emulating the ravings of the sanest man on the planet. Nuff Said.
