SPLATTER 3 + N
Clear the Club

[Rastascan Records, www.rastascan.com]

Going strong for the last two decades, Bay area favourites Splatter Trio are back with an oddly titled release "Clear the Club". As usual, the music consists of a series of layered ideas executed at the speed of light. The greatest strength of the trio is their adaptability in execution of their common ideas. This time around, the trio [Dave Barrett on saxes and ocarina, Myles Boisen on guitars, bass, keyboards and sonics and Gino Robair on drums, synths, organ, theremin and guitars] added percussionist Michaelle Goerlitz, guitarist Len Paterson and multi-instrumentalist Dave Slusser. If this wasn't enough, a number of the band's friends were asked to do overdubs and finally tid-bits of live and studio recordings were added to the mix. The sound is now chunkier, while the band rocks as hard as ever. Everyone involved is equally as good and for that reason alone, it would be unfair to single anyone out from the crowd. An outstanding release that is surprisingly very accessible.
