Album Description

Formed in 1983, the confusingly eclectic New Music group Headless Household has just released its fifth album: mockhausen is a collection of outtakes, improvisation, and other artful noises, and is the least “commercial” one yet. From a motley range of sources, both live and studio-bound, structurally free and…well, slightly less free, a strange continuity emerges. One could even call it psycho-meditative. The discography: Headless Household (1987), Inside/Outside USA (1993), Items (1996), and Free Associations (1999), mockhausen (2000), all released on Household Ink Records. The group: Dick Dunlap, plugged and unplugged keyboards, Tom Lackner, percussions, Chris Symer, basses, Joe Woodard, guitars and turntables. Guests kindly join in, too. On several tracks, including the great New York-based alto saxist Dave Binney contributes his more-than-two- cents worth, attitudinal trumpeter Jeff Kaiser can be heard on “Skippy Elvin,” and Ellen Turner offers her luminous pipes to the concluding ballad, “Wintry (Invention).”
