Reissue of this old S@1 48/49 double LP from 1998. "Nearly ten years of swimming up stream through the sonic flotsam & jetsam, the folks have gotten freaky, noise is the new noise, the chin scratchers have joined the metal circus and the No Neck Blues Band remain as relevant today as ever. Their indoor /outdoor audio assaults in upper & lower Manhattan are the stuff of legend but on 1998s Live at Kens Electric Lake the band took a distinct turn, crossed the Canadian border, hooked up w/ some Sunburned folks and made a sudden diaspora to a rural retreat in the country for a full days session of acid-head tribal percussion clatter that is utterly different than anything the band had put on the public record up to that time. Looser, groovier & more in that communal state of mind than ever, NNCKs long out-of-print fifth release from 1998 is a classic testament to the urban dwellers gone wild & ranks as among their finest displays of tribal churn and choogle in the bands 14 year history. Neo-Dada attacks were swapped out for psychedelic vibrations, midrange mystery for outdoor atmospherics. Kens is a peak communal moment for New Yorks most enigmatic, longest running experimental collective." - Locust.
