Free Concert: Cactus Truck
November 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Recital Hall
The avant-garde free improvisation trio Cactus Truck (saxophonist John Dikeman, bassist/guitarist Jasper Stadhouders & drummer Onno Govaert) is on a 40-day nationwide tour in support of their recent recording “Brand New For China!” (Public Eyesore Records) that includes stops in New York, Philadelphia, Denver, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Portland, Los Angeles, New Orleans and twenty-seven other U.S. cities.
Cactus Truck creates startlingly intense music, not merely in terms of volume or velocity but through complete physical/psychological surrender. One can find hints of Delta blues, free jazz, Japanese noise and No Wave in their music. Cactus Truck is based in Amsterdam and they’ve collaborated frequently with members of The Ex, including Terrie Ex, Andy Moor, Arnold de Boer (ZEA) and Colin McLean, as well as Ab Baars, Han Bennink, Dave Rempis, Jeb Bishop, Peter Jacquemyn, Teun Verbruggen, Gerri Jaeger (Knalpot) and Jon Rune Strøm.
