The Irving Klaw Trio is a quartet
(Andrew Price and Jeff Fuccillo on guitars, Jason Funk on drums
and a saxophonist) from Portland (Oregon) that plays improvised punk-jazz
in the glorious tradition of
with spices of dementia taken from Red Crayola and Captain Beefheart,
and, more recently,
Sun City Girls and
Debut album Irving Klaw Trio (Silly Bird, 1996) was a merry-go-round
of spastic playing and indifferent harmonies
Utek Pahtoo Mogoi (Road Cone, 1997) was a more serious affair, suddenly
echoing Miles Davis, Frank Zappa and Can while attaining ethnic credibility
and redeeming the dogmas of song structure (Jizzo The Clown).
The Irving Klaw Trio (Jeff Fuccillo, Jason Funk, Ryan Poulos)
into Hochenkeit (Fuccillo, Funk, Matthew Arnold, John Vasallo, Josh Hanson),
a more abstract and less jazzy outfit that concocted the psychedelic/electronic
world-music cauldrons I Love You (Road Cone, 1999) and
Omu4h 4aholab/400 Boys (2000), inspired by Can and Faust.
Jeff Fuccillo's solo album Disturbed Strings (Roaratorio, 2004) is
improvised music for guitar with a background of found sounds provided by
John Fahey in person.
