Live album (mastered) of gig at The Bull & Gate, London, 8 March 2004.


‘Bob Dylan is not the only artist on a neverending tour: Damo Szuki picks up a different outfit at every stop, and in March 2004 at London’s Bull & Gate, he hooked up with Now, who had already been forging their own melange of Krautrock, synth pop and lo-fi for a few years. The result is an explosive set that holds well against anything Suzuki recorded in or outside of Can. . . The album creeps into life as Damo’s guttural whispers and stutters get “Knopp Off” into gear. The group knock themselves into shape one rimshot and wah-snag at a time until the piece rolls itself into a shuddering, funky whole. “Metro Girl” has a tinny hi-hat tempo, swaying with low-slung bass and mangled disco-zaps from the keyboard. “One And One Equal One” is another honourable entry in ‘the short history of poor mathematics in rock’ and is also a hypnotic slice of motorik fuzz to boot. Its followed up by the one downbeat moment on the album, “Acid Test”, a slow paced fragmentary lament. The closing workout is the magnificent “The Zero Game”, an ARP synth-loop fued bounce boogie with a two-note guitar part that Michael Karoli would have been proud of. In the latter stages it features that rarest and most precious of things – some psych trumpet playing that adds a glorious spray of Technicolor energy not heard since The Beatles’ far-out excursion “Its All Too Much”.’

NOW was founded in 1998 with the aim to bring together adventurous multi-instrumentalists who are as much in love with analogue synthesizers and electronics as they are with guitars, percussion and traditional instruments to play experimental pop.
