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

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