First release date: 1997

PATRIZIO consists of duets with Paul Lovens, the German free jazz drum maestro, recorded in New York and Michigan in May 1996. Chadbourne´s perverse, ever buoyant anti-authoritarian plucking (dobro and banjo) elicits inspired percussive clutter from Lovens. Pauses and silence present a contrasting context to, say, the punk assault of Shockabilly (Chadbourne´s 80s rock trio) but Chadbourne´s multistring fireworks foment undiminished. ´Plunger Patente A Gos´ is a shimmering guitar gamelan, ´Husband And Wives´ the plaintive coffee house song Leonard Cohen never wrote. ´Fortune Cookie´ has a majestic out rock climax, its torn textures teetering on the edge of a new guitar insanity.

Guess Who´s Coming to Dinner
(…) PATRIZIO is distinguished by long stretches of pure sonic interplay, with Lovens charting a course in which he can, by turn, function independently of Chadbourne´s shifting approaches or interchat closely. When Lovens´ musical saw appears, it´s an instrument of incongruous beauty.
