“Shattered Dimension” by the Flying Luttenbachers; Bancamp Link: Shattered Dimension
The Flying Luttenbachers are Weasel Walter’s long running chimeric band. Stretching back to its earliest incarnations, in the early 1990s, many great players have participated in various incarnations of the Flying Luttenbachers.
This new iteration of the group is particularly potent, with Walter on drums, Saxophonist Matt Nelson, bassist Tim Dahl, and guitarist Brandon Seabrook.
Generally, the only constant is that the band explores the jittery febrile ground between edgy art rock and noisy improvisation.
A lot of times I’ll find myself listening to an album by an allegedly “edgy” group. Listening to insipid song after insipid song, with lyrics about “my girlfriend”, “my lover”, “my red solo cup”, or “my good dog watermelon wine”. Eventually, the band will get around to some sort of jam, and I’ll think, “Jesus, finally! They are kicking their shoes off and freeing themselves!” Only for the jam to fade out disappointingly in a few bars, just about when it seems like they are getting warmed up.
There are no songs about dogs on “Shattered Dimension”. Girls are not referenced. There are no lyrics at all.
Instead, what you get are 4 players freeing themselves of their hangups and pouring their guts out onto the floor of the recording studio.
