Ten guitarists from Washington bands such as
Government Issue (Mitch Parker),
High Back Chairs,
plus Unrest's drummer (Phil Kraut),
perform in the ensemble Tone.
The instrumental EP Build (Independent Project, 1995) is reminiscent of
Rhys Chatam's and Glenn Branca's chamber symphonies
(Milhous, Ramifications, Galvanized Mass)
and to early Sonic Youth
(The Power Of Introspection). But Tone's guitar music also harks back to
the majestic tribalism of Savage Republic
The album Sustain (Independent Project, 1997)
features five guitarists, two bassists and one drummer.
The music of
Tag, Augmented, Secret Satellites, Fate, Nostalgia And Remorse
is more evocative and intelligible,
although still a far cry from conventional 1960s' surf/garage/soundtrack
Structure (Dischord, 2000) is even less ambitious and may reach the
point where it is not yet entertaining while not being experimental any more.
