Northhampton Wools cometh. Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth and Bill Nace of x.o.4/Vampire Belt/Open Mouth wield their stringed axes in an acro-sound-batic display of sonic interplay.
Ditto for Noise Nomads, who is another Western Mass noise blazer named Jeff Hartford, who is also in Grey Skull. I read he's "a sasquatch hunk, tough-skinned buffoon, broken, brutally embarrassed," and "a no-fi mistake." "He's never content to just play to one schtick as it were, instead, practicing everything from christmas tree impersonation, to hand chime phasery, to all out 4-track abuse." (Load)
Crooked Hook kicks off the melee with their brand of heavy duty old skool riffage psychrock.
