Hound Dog Taylor’s Hand – Live At The Comet [tape]

First ever release by Seattle’s secret weapon against the tech squares and yuppie droolers! Jeffery Taylor (Climax Golden Twins) spins tall 6-string tales with his guitar and the crowd bows down before an ascended master. Vets of the NW improv-wars, Mark Ostrowski,and John Seman unleash a barrage of sounds via drums and stand-up bass that toss genres like dirty underwear, leaving the inner ear dizzy and thirsting for more…lots more. It’s equal parts groovy, LOUD, and out there for more than just a minute. Live, improvised chanteys for squirming larvae everywhere, “Live At The Comet” is a document from a town that doesn’t even know what’s good for it.
