Peter Br: Fuck De Boere I am hoping that German saxophonist Peter Brötzmann will be given his just due one day as an avant-garde Godhead. Maybe, just maybe, in the same fashion that saw the late mainstream hornman, Joe Henderson, become a reluctant icon, although past his prime playing. This two concert CD documents Peter Brötzmann in the malestorm of like-minded European improvisors. Fuck De Boere is equal parts justified political diatribe and historical relic of the then burgeoning European outcat scene. "Machine Gun" is performed here as its first incantation, three months before the BRO/FMP release. Brötzmann leads this nine-piece aggregation in a wash of sonic spectacle. This version of "Machine Gun" is forty minutes of sometimes frustrating episodic beauty and excess, all dedicated to the late South African bassist, Johnny Dyani.

Even in this boys-noise of swirling tenor saxophones (3), blurping trombones, and the skrunk of Derek Bailey's guitar, Peter Brötzmann proves himself to be an acute listener.

All in all, both pieces offer an uncompromising blend of free jazz that lacks the focus and variety of Brötzmann's subsequent work.
