the wildhouse + pipeline + stun

the wildhouse have been described thus by one enthusiastic reviewer:

The guitars begin a sonic barrage with a sea of sound rather than lead or rhythm but so dense and yet so hypnotic, as Paul's lush vocal becomes both song and textural layer, actual lyrics but almost buried in the mix, yet so necessary as a song content. As the set progresses, Sheila's drumming gather pace and strength - as if it wasn't strong enough to start with - the booming rhythms she plays, making the likes of Dinger of Neu and Liebezeit of Can look like also-rans, as this immense polyrhythmic thunder blasts out, the spectacle of Sheila standing there blasting out the resounding, resonant rhythms on these two floor-standing drums, simply jaw-dropping. Over this, the two guitarists burn, swirl and howl, a huge barrage of guitar textures surrounding you in rapturous waves of sonic delight. At some point in the third track, Paul, from out of nowhere, unleashes a guitar lead that I can only liken to a hi-inetnsity Neil Young, as this scorching electric guitar work, notes and chords glowing red-hot, surges from the speakers on a positively jaw-dropping solo, all the time the immense drumming powering out while the guitar assault from the other side of the stage is wrapped in feedback and drowns you in a sea of sound.

A final track is an extended improv that takes you places no other band can lead - even for this band, they up the anti - Sheila's drumming accelerates, her head down and buried in this mass of long black hair like a manic Damo Suzuki of the early seventies, becomes ever more intense and breathtaking, so powerful that you think the floor's gonna open up any minute and suck you into the depths, or that she's simply going to explode. All around, the guitars blaze with hi-intensity soundscapes as Paul suddenly stops, lays down the guitar and delivers his languid vocal along with the tinkling of thi s meallic percussion that is suspended in front of him, the mix so good that, even with drums and second guitar on fire, you hear this incredible slice of subtlety on top of it all - simply amazing!! The drumming becomes ever more intense as Sheila positively erupts while Peter's guitar work turns almost organically into a massive howl of feedback-laden electric guitar storm for the final minutes of the set, as the band go nuclear - then, almost as suddenly as it began - it stops - and you actually want more - much more.!!!
