Mystical Weapons’ Crotesque is out now! This super-limited, 19.50 minute Record Store Day Black Friday 2013 12” can be found at retail stores near you. It’s one-sided with a screen-printed illustration by Sean Lennon on the flip.
In a chat with Interview Magazine, Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier said “It’s really surreal, nothing about this band seems realistic.” That same sentiment perfectly applies to how the Northern Spy team feels about working with Sean Lennon and Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier. We’re thrilled to be presenting radical improvised rock music performed by monumental musicians: Sean Lennon of John and Yoko fame obviously and The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger; Greg Saunier of Deerhoof; Shahzad Ismaily of many collabs including Marc Ribot’s Ceramic Dog (see Your Turn).
Tonight!! — Thursday, December 5th at Union Pool (Brooklyn, NY)
