Diskaholics Anonymous Trio consists of the not so anonymous Thurston Moore and Jim O'Rourke from Sonic Youth and the Swedish free jazz icon Mats Gustafsson. The trio released their first album in 2001 on Crazy Wisdom/Universal, but their new album Weapons of Ass Destruction will be released worldwide on Smalltown Superjazzz. The album was recorded live by Ola Glans and Erik Ljungberg at Ystads Teater, Sweden, October 6. 2002. Diskaholics Anonymous' music is avant/punk/noise/free jazz. Thurston Moore's guitar will make you think of New York in the eighties and Sonic Youth around the time of Confusion is Sex/Bad Moon Rising. Jim O'Rourke's laptop was last heard on Wilco's monumental "Less Than You Think" on a Ghost Is Born. Mats Gustafsson sounds like Albert Ayler playing punk rock. The result of these three titans clashing together is an intense blow-out. Raw, grandiose and brutally beautiful. Mats Gustafsson has previously worked with Sonic Youth, when he wrote the piece "Hidros 3" exclusively for them, something which led to the release entitled just that (on Smalltown Supersound). Gustafsson has also played with the band live and worked with Jim O'Rourke since the mid-nineties, when he became a central part of the Chicago jazz scene. SMJZ. 2006.
