Will Greene, Simon Hanes and Aaron Edgcomb didn’t know each other before they were invited by John Zorn to found a new band and play his score books “Bagatelles” and “Apparitions”. In common they had a variety of musical interests covering creative jazz, experimental music and “intelligent” pop. A saxophonist besides being a guitar player, Greene worked with such different luminaries like Marc Ribot and Joe Morris. An ex-member of the art rock group Guerilla Toss, Hanes devoted his love for the music of Burt Bacharach, Serge Gainsbourg, Ennio Morricone and all things Italian to the development of the ambitious project Tredici Bacci. A percussionist with classical background, Edgcomb’s career is covering several fronts, from new music and free improvisation to hardcore noise, in contexts like Yelsa, REA and The Gown of Entry. Trigger is something else, this new “Pull” showing us that there’s more to do after Zorn’s tutelage. Namely, a thrashy, punkish, garage-like version of free rock conceived as a cathartic ritual, with all the savage beauty of chaos.
