DISAPPEARS

Low: Live In Chicago

(Maple Death Records - MDR005) Cassette $7.55

Yes, a complete cover of David Bowie’s 1977 album Low recorded live at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago. While quite faithful to the original, Disappears’ rhythm section — Noah Leger and Damon Carruesco — injects Side A with steroids: seven buzzing songs, muscular and ferocious. On the more avant-garde Side B, “Warszawa” is an intense battleground between Brian Case’s and Jonathan van Herik’s treated guitars, while “Subterraneans” swaps saxophones for Rother-esque kosmiche curlicues, and “Weeping Wall” builds to an appropriate and fearsome Berlin wall of noise.
