Slap and Tickle was recorded at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in Norway (so maybe they are playing jazz) in 2007: a heavy half hour followed by 15 minutes of noise funk that gets dangerously close to no wave. But as much as they might open the throttle, they never lose control and never fall into aimless pounding. The band is tastefully fluid in its workings, sometimes allowing itself to become jagged guitar with rhythm section, other times shooting and ricocheting more independently. It’s a riotous ride.
