Sunwatchers
Sunwatchers
Sun Watchers is an improvisational new-music cooperative dedicated to divining the common sonic and spiritual ground shared by the great progenitors of free jazz, psych rock, punk and minimalist classical. The group’s fluid ranks include current and former members of NYMPH, Arthur Doyle’s New Quiet Screamers, Darkside, Chris Forsyth’s Solar Motel Band, David First’s Ensemble, Gamelan Kusama Laras, Young People, Dark Meat, Whispering Pines and countless other acts of variable temperament, affect and geographic base of operation.
Eugene Chadbourne
Eugene Chadbourne - Avant Jazz/Rock/Punk/Folk Artist. Chadbourne is quite unique in the history of music for being at the same time an avantgarde composer in the classical tradition, a jazz improviser, a folk musician and a member of a rock band. Only Frank Zappa could compete with such eclecticism.

"The Groucho Marx of the guitar, skronkabilly alien Eugene Chadbourne deals solely in slapstickery, sly punchlines, and exaggerated eccentricities. As if his implode-on-a-dime freakouts weren't enough, he's perhaps the quickest guitarist alive to exploit the parts of the instrument beyond the fretboard and beyond sanity, pounding, tweaking, scraping, and hammering away — not to mention playing a rake like the world's meanest axe. Most Heroic Moment: Shockabilly's 1983 cover of the Doors' "People Are Strange," where the track keeps wiping out into finger-shredding piles of barbed wire. C.W."
