Music Consumption: Painkiller
08/08/1999 Painkiller: Execution Ground

My Zorn phase continues. As I sit here in a coffee shop with the Beatles' Rubber Soul playing in the background, the very idea of Painkiller is almost inconceivable, and yet totally and completely necessary. It's hard to believe that the same planet could hold both musics. The Painkiller is very heavy, and very listenable (for me, anyway). The extra bonus of listening to this CD is that I can now hear the Painkiller influence on Zorn's Masada project--yep, there's more to it than just Ornette and klezmer, I'm realizing. I've got to pick up more Masada, actually.
