the very first gig, at Spectrum NYC
David Tamura
Paul Feitzinger

Downtown Music Gallery

This live completely improvised performance from 2013 explores the realms of doom metal and free jazz. The songs meander between coherent, sloppy-tight riffs reminiscent of what Black Sabbath did on occasion, and more chaotic playing. "Featuring Alex Lozupone on guitar/bass, David Tamura on tenor sax and Paul Feitzinger on drums. Alex Lozupone runs the Dog & Panda label which has released a half dozen discs, three of which are sessions led by drummer Marc Edwards. This is the first time meeting between the three members of this trio recorded at Spectrum on Ludlow Street, just one subway stop away from DMG and one of last performance places left in Manhattan that features a variety of New & Experimental musics. I hadn't heard of Alex or Paul before this disc but Alex is a member of a couple of Marc Edwards bands. David Tamura we know from his recent work with Dave Burrell, Kidd Jordan and Sabir Mateen. Right from that opening salvo, this trio is powerful and impressive. Mr. Lozupone sounds as if he is playing some dark, metalish, heavy guitar with Mr. Tamura's sax also erupting intensely and Feitzinger strong drumming holding things together. Scary, punk/metal/free/jazz improv?!? Lozupoane does a fine job of playing powerful riffs, helping to keep the trio focused into a fire-breathing bohemeth. He uses effects likea wah-wah or distortion to fatten his sound into a more throbbing mass. Torture time? Indeed." - BLG/DMG

a 78 minute epic CD of two live performances

The personnel for this version of Eighty-Pound Pug features Alex Lozupone on guitar/bass & bass loops, David Tamura on tenor sax, Paul Feitzinger on drums & keyboard, John P. on loops, effects & drums, Kevin Shea on drums & drumpad and Yuan Liu on modded SK5. The music on this disc was recorded at two different live sessions, one with John P. on drums and one with Kevin Shea (from MOPDTK & Talibam!). This music has a heavy jazz/rock jamming sort of vibe going on which changes as it mitates section to section. I like the sound of this band although the live recording quality is good but never too precise, it still fits the music/vibe. Alex's heavy riffs for guitar or el. bass remain at the center of their sound, although Tamura's sax sounds as if he is playing through devices at times at least a somewhat distorted PA. If you recognize Mr. Tamura's name it is due to his work with Joe Chonto for the SomeRealMusic label. Tamura is an intense saxist who is often featured in Eighty-Pound Pug and consistently wails like there is no tomorrow. Sometimes this music get as thick as good porridge when they turn it on full blast with those electronic effects adding even more swirling insanity to the wind-whipping hurricane force. Just when you think that it is about to spin out of control, Alex will add some riff to help pull things together. Almost too much! - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG
