Jonathan Kane's February, Kathleen Supove
Jonathan Kane is a Downtown NYC legend--as co-founder of the no-wave behemoth, Swans, and the rhythmic thunder behind the massed-guitar armies of Rhys Chatham and the rock excursions of La Monte Young--and as one of the hardest-hitting drummers on the planet. On his critically acclaimed releases 'February', and 'I Looked At The Sun', Kane summons Swans' concussive wallop, Chatham's dense guitar strata, and the perpetual propulsion of 70s krautrockers Neu, then steers it all head-on into... the blues. Make no mistake about it: Kane is a bluesman, and beneath his music's hip shaking high-decible bombast, he's powering guitar-driven minimalism into the blues, and the blues into guitar-driven harmonic maximalism. Kane has also toured and recorded with a galaxy of modern music luminaries such as Elliott Sharp, Gary Lucas, John Zorn, Dave Soldier, The Kropotkins, Moe Tucker, Jean-Francois Pauvros, Jac Berrocal, Evan Parker and Transmission.
"Paradise between the back porch, the urban jungle and the heavens above. Rarely does the avant-garde rock this hard." -Time Out New York
"What Ms. Supov is really exploding is the piano recital as we have known it, a mission more radical and arguably more needed." Anthony Tommasini, NY Times
"This was classical music played like the best rock'n'roll. It was passionate, earnest, loud and more complex than the gatekeepers of high culture would like to think. Brava."
