A band. The Disco Biscuits are on the leading edge of improvised rock fusion headfuckery
. As young musicians with diverse influences, guitarist Jon "The Barber" Gutwillig, keyboardist Aron Magner, drummer Sam Altman and bassist Marc Brownstein have developed a repertoire of over 80 original songs in their short five years together. These songs act as springboards
to exquisite, intense exploratory
jams, creating mind-expanding soundscapes which draw equally from the high-tech worlds of drum n bass
, progressive house
trance as well as laid-back reggae dub
, progressive rock
. It isn't out of the question to even hear some salsa
beats go down during one of the Biscuits' marathon sets.
These "leaders of a jam-band renaissance", as Rolling Stone called them, are almost always touring, so you have no excuse for not checking them out! If you are broke, you could always download a few full shows from www.hearlive.com!
Just added: If you'd like to get any live Disco Biscuits on CD-R from me (B&P style), I can help you out. Just /msg me!
