Above: Naked City (Yamatsuka Eye not pictured) -- please note the Accused T-shirt in the back.
Q: What do you get when highbrow jazz dorks take PCP?
A: Naked Fucking City.
Comprised of avant garde composer/saxophonist John Zorn, guitarist Bill Frisell, keyman Wayne Horvitz, bassist Fred Frith, drummer Joey Baron, and incomparable Boredoms vocalist Yamatsuka Eye, Naked City (named after a 1948 noir film), take jazz, metal, punk, classical, country, and just about any other genre imaginable, throw it all into a blender, mix it up, chug the whole concoction, and then vomit the resulting mess right down your throat. Inspired by the fast-changing compositions of Looney Tunes mainman Carl Stalling, Zorn's music is ridiculously complex, artsy to a fault, and aggressive as all Hell. Afraid these nerds won't be "metal" enough for you? Well, their song "Osaka Bondage" was featured on the second Earache Grindcrusher compilation. AND they used to play with Napalm Death. So there.
NAKED CITY (1989 - technically classified as a John Zorn album, but whatevs...)
GRAND GUIGNOL (1991)
Naked City released another fantastic album between these two, entitled Torture Garden, although it shares several of the same tracks as their self-titled debut. If you'd like to check it out, head over to Cosmic Hearse and do so immediately.
