This one’s a scorcher! Alexandre Bellenger and Arnaud Rivière (of French free-noise brutes Bobby Moo) joyously tear up turntables and jam chunks of metal junk into mixing desks, while trumpeter/percusser Aaron Moore (of Volcano the Bear) propels the raw electronic din with a backbone of hyperactive clatter.
"AAA", the group’s second album (the first, "For the Boss", was published by Beta-Lactam Ring in 2009) catches the group in a particularly feral mood. Far from the polite group-improv snooze perpetrated by folks who hear an AMM record and think “hm, yeah i can do that” (no you can’t), Textile Trio unleash their splatter with both the sensitivity of seasoned composer / improvisers and energetic punk abandon. Textile Trio‘s furious blur lives somewhere between the art / jazz tangle of Un Drame Musical Instantané, Msayuki Takayanagi‘s throat-throttling New Directions Unit, and the live vinyl-scramble of Otomo Yoshihide. Full of life and humanity, "AAA" is delirious, dense, direct, and a pleasure to listen to.
Praise for "AAA":
"This album is punk as fuck and needs to be heard." - Anti-Gravity Bunny
