Founded in 1989 and releasing their first album in 1991, Blast are a brilliant Dutch avant/rock band, who combine a very unique & recognizable skewed rhythmic base with angular & intricate horn & guitar charts ala Henry Cow and Doctor Nerve.
Wire Stitched Ears, released in 1995, was their second album and their first of three for Cuneiform.
The music is tough-edged & aggressive and must be heard to be believed; a great disc of intensely complicated, rehearsal-intensive RIO-style rock.
"I never got to see Henry Cow, but now that I've seen Blast, it doesn't matter." – Bill Ellsworth (upon seeing them at the same amazing show I saw!)
"...tight, complex, angular, polyrhythmic, verging-on-brilliant Dadist chamber rock...indescribably powerful & compelling...this is a must." –Alternative Press

i must admit now that i collect hendrix covers. his material is SO strong that there are many, and very few really ones. this is one of the best ever. these tracks are hot, and strange, and beautiful, and strong, yet essentially faithful in a colorful way. magical workings! CH
