E dagli altrettanto - anzi, di più! - sterminati archivi di Eugene Chadbourne esce un nuovo volume dedicato ad alcune sue sortite giovanili con John Zorn sul finire degli anni Settanta: Great Duo Live, 1977-'80, Volume II. Il cd è autoprodotto e viene distribuito ai concerti del Dottore - attualmente in giro per Olanda, Germania, Svizzera e Francia - oppure a distanza, da casa Chadula o da Squidco.

Historic recordings from 1977-1980 of guitarist Eugene Chadbourne and John Zorn on sax, clarinet and game calls, performing together or solo in New York, San Francisco, Woodstock, NY, Toronto, ON, and New Orleans, LA. Most of these recordings are from before the downtown scene had formed, but already these two players were taking unusual approaches to improvisation that were mostly unprecedented at the time. These recordings provide a view into the early careers of two artists who helped influence a large community of creative musicians, and who continue to surprise five decades later.
