Hammering out a wall of skittering percussion, Nervous Cop's assault by tom-tom conjures these late-night exercises in caffeinated stamina. On the debut release from the side project of Hella's Zach Hill and Deerhoof's Greg Saunier, Nervous Cop beat out a William Hooker impersonation for a little over a half hour then call it a day. The clashing/smashing smackdown pauses once or twice to allow a plucked or ringing harp jam from Joanna Newsom of The Please (who after two beautifully countrified self-released solo discs, has something coming out on Drag City sometime in 2004) and run-of-the-mill digital twiddling from electro-acoustic composer John Dieterich, also of Deerhoof.
album. It is Zach Hill (and Greg - Deerhoof), and so its more noise related than folky plucking. Newsoms input sounds pretty minimal and in the background whereas the other instruments dominate.
on their album. Which isn't very good, sadly.
She played keyboards in The Pleased. I think it was her ex's band? Haven't heard them, though.
the one who is blatantly supposed to be the monkey in monkey and bear?
she did a song. I haven't heard that either!
and yep, they were both members of The Pleased (I haven't heard anything by them either). Noah was also producer for 'The Milk-Eyed Mender'.
