Joseph Berardi- sampling,
Kira Vollman- voice, bass
clarinet, prollo tape, glockenspiel, hand perc., lyrics
This duo makes you believe that
art rock could actually come up with something interesting. Itís what
Tom Waits might do if he went wholly avant garde and it might get you to
believe that Brecht/Weill still live. Not bad for just one record.
L.A.-based, Non Credo try to embrace it all and make B-movie sense of
everything. Or nonsense, I should say. Refreshing, unpretentious and
self-mocking, itís not one to miss by any stretch. Vollman is a
phenomenal vocalist-I think Iíd rather listen to her than Diamanda
Galas, who covers much the same waterfront. Berardi is equally
impressive in his sphere. Itís best to not concern yourself as to
whether this is pop, art rock, improv or what, just jump right in and
play (in every sense).
