“Discovery of the year: Cactus Truck. Young, Dutch improvisers (about time!). Sparky and real.”
Terrie Ex, recollections of 2011, The Wire
“It becomes apparent that the furious combination of free jazz and improv punk has been perfected.”
Herman te Loo, JazzFlits
Based in Amsterdam, this fire-breathing improvisational trio is comprised of bassist/guitarist Jasper Stadhouders, drummer Onno Govaert, and American-born saxophonist John Dikeman. The band plays a take-no-prisoners, high-energy brand of free jazz strongly influenced by the likes of Albert Ayler and Peter Brötzmann at their most intense (they also claim that their music includes elements of Delta blues, Japanese noise, and no wave). Cactus Truck self-released an eponymous CD-R in 2011 and followed that up with a 2012 cassette release (featuring Terrie Ex from the Ex) entitled Macho Sex; their first “official” album, Brand New for China!, arrived in March of 2012 on the Public Eyesore label. In late October through mid-December of that year, Cactus Truck stormed the United States with a massive 37-date tour that saw the trio tearing it up across the country, up the East Coast from Atlanta to Boston, across the Midwest and West, down the West Coast from Seattle to Los Angeles, and finally wending their way back east for three final dates in New York City. Selections from the tour (recorded at Squidco Records in Wilmington, Delaware with guest trombonist Jeb Bishop; Astro Black Records in Louisville, Kentucky; and the final show at JACK in N.Y.C. with guest trumpeter Roy Campbell) were featured on the Live in USA album, released in March 2013 by the band’s Tractata Records imprint in collaboration with the eh? label.

Tamara Filyavich (electronics)
Maya Kuroki (voice, electric guitar)
Tamayugé is a musical collaboration between Japanese and Ukrainian musicians now based in Montreal, Maya Kuroki and Tamara Filyavich.
Maya Kuroki’s phantasmagoric vocals and dreamy guitar added to Tamara Filyavich’s team of electronic ghosts fresh out of her nightmares invite us to a strange ritual, between tormented performance and feminist ceremony. Like Baba Yaga, an ambivalent character of the Slav Mythology, both part of Japanese and Ukrainian cultures, Tamayugé’s music brings scary and exciting shivers and an enigmatic imaginary.
The mysterious and unsettling Tamayuge’s universe is somewhere between Phew, Laurie Anderson and The Residents!
