about

"Listen to this and you’ll never ween yourself off." ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (UKVibe)

"When their virtuosity blasts through, it's as shocking as a smack in the chops" (Jazzwise)

"Adrenaline-pumping exhilaration, that's rather addictive" (Prog Magazine)

"It doesn't swing.....highly enjoyable" (Stereogum)

"Cyclical grooviness" (Stuart Maconie)

‘Disco Erosion’ captures the visceral energy of Shatner’s Bassoon’s live performances, retaining their brazen and uncompromising identity, which is not only drawn from their mesmerizing resonance but largely from its bold and direct delivery. Each member has a wide and disparate influence and approach to making music which all filters into the bands overall sound.

As menacing as it is playful, the album is built on intricate yet often evasive song structures, angular rhythms and anxiety inducing psychedelia. The distinct featured instrumentation includes circuit bent delay pedals for keyboard, a myriad of off-kilter sax, a slice of Theremin, clarinet, cowbell and a pinch of Transylvanian organ. The result is a glitchy and deranged carnival of paranoia, which blends influences from the likes of Mr. Bungle, Frank Zappa, The Cardiacs, Tim Berne, John Zorn, Man From Uranus and Fred Frith.

‘Disco Erosion’ is Shatner’s Bassoon most accomplished and urgent recording to date.
