Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura – Clifton Park, NY, Vol. 1 & 2Posted: September 6, 2015
The Manchester based ultra-psych collective Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura is an adventure in multilayered hyperjamming. These live recordings from Clifton Park, recorded in the number of 8(!) musicians are some 100(!) minutes (both volumes combined) of tireless, incredibly groovy tripping while never losing its energy and touch. The harmony and understanding between musicians is impeccable, there’s some incredibly chemistry going on on those four side-long behemoths. Obviously, this is some heavyweight stuff, non-stop soloing and noodling, spearheaded by band leader Nick Mitchell (who is basically an European version of Acid Mothers Temple’s Kawabata Makoto) and expanding in all directions at once with the help of 7 other masters of their domains. Another mind-blowing release from the Soldados, highly recommended!
