Chris Cochrane + Climax Golden Twins
Presented by Nonsequitur. One of downtown NYC's great, unsung guitar heroes, Chris Cochrane's raw, angular guitar style embraces a gamut of tender, bluesy lyricism and harsh noise. Tonight he performs music from his new CD, Them (Tzadik), composed for a 1985 performance with choreographer Ishmael Houston-Jones and writer Dennis Cooper. Climax Golden Twins is the inscrutable and ever-morphing sonic beast animated by Rob Millis and Jeffrey Taylor. Together, individually and with others, they push the definition of a "band" to its limits, making live movie soundtracks, gallery installations, weird ethnographic films, and deeply immersing themselves in the dusty, crackling grooves of old 78s.
