CATEGORY: EXPERIMENTAL ROCK | DURATION: 32 MINUTES
The terminus of a line stretching back through Sonic Youth and No Wave to Beefheart’s Magic Band, U.S. Maple’s Long Hair In Three Stages presents the third face of experimental rock and pop from 1995. Not so much non-rock as an evisceration and sardonic reconstruction of the most extreme underground rock tropes, Long Hair In Three Stages also joins those very few works of the recycling age with the power to truly entertain.
