(Clicka qua per la versione Italiana)

Neutral Milk Hotel's drummer Jeremy Barnes formed Bablicon with Dave McDonald and Griffin Rodriguez. The Chicago-based instrumental trio (saxophone, bass and drums) debuted with In A Different City (Pickled Egg, 1999), a noisy, spastic, psychedelic jazz-rock experiment that harks back to Captain Beefheart (minus the voice and the blues).

The more complex tapestry of the mini-album Orange Tappered Moon (Pickled Egg, 2000) was reminiscent of both Soft Machine's progressive-rock and Slint's post-rock as well as of Frank Zappa's irreverent musique concrete.

The piano dominated the anarchic vignettes of A Flat Inside A Fog, The Cat That Was A Dog (Misra, 2000), a gloriously incoherent statement of ambient cacophony.

Need New Body's drummer Chris Powell and Bablicon's bassist Griffin Rodriquez formed Icy Demons who released Fight Back! (Cloud Recordings, 2004.
