Oren Ambarchi saddles up with Fire! - the incendiary improvised psych-jazz outfit of Mats Gustafsson, Johan Berthling and Andreas Werliin - on a scorching session recorded late 2011 in London. Like their previous LP 'In The Mouth', they make a virtue of integrating fresh blood into their complex, attuned system, with Ambarchi and Gustafsson alternately projecting visions of elemental, abstract, distorted guitar sculpture and cosmic wind, rhodes, organ and electronics, respectively, on top of a swingeing, hypnotic rhythm section. Ambarchi's on stunning form, wielding sky-collapsing swipes of intense and delirious guitar noise like a man possessed on 'A Man Who Might Have Been Screaming', while Gustafsson bides his time to interject, dominating the first half of the 27-minute 'And The Stories Will Flood Your Satisfaction (With Terror)' with a caterwauling vortex of tenor sax, subsiding to mind-bending drones and Ambarchi's virtuosic dexterity, or meditating on looming, dissonant drone and amp worship on the finely reduced killer closing statement 'I Am Sucking For A Bruise'. Highly recommended.
