16-17 Early Recordings

16-17 are the revolutionary skronk. Parts Naked City, parts Flying Luttenbachers; everyone doing skronk/jazz/violence/etc. these days has something to owe this band. They kick ass.

All their shit is a fucking huge "organized" mess of drums, sax and bass. I don't remember there being any vocals, but there might be a few tracks with some improvised yelling and screaming.

This is actually a two CD set collecting all their earliest stuff, like the "16-17" and "When All Else Fails" albums that for the longest fucking time was out of print. Now you can actually get this again, since the "SAVAGE LAND" label just re-released it. You can get it on Crucial Blast's distro.

  1. Nice post ;)

    Not pretentious like Zorn and waaay fucking better than Luttenbachers in my opinion.

    I wondered if anyone else out there dug these guys.
