From garage rock and no-wave to cocktail jazz: former Tom Waits and Elvis Costello guitarist Marc Ribot pulls out all the stops with Ceramic Dog. Ribot has torn the roof off the Bimhuis several times already with his energetic trio Ceramic Dog
Anything goes, from angular songs to exuberant rock riffs to a whimsical version of jazz classic Take Five. Multi-instrumentalist Shahzad Ismaily (who played with Will Oldham and Colin Stetson) can switch from distorted bass guitar to cheerful organ. And drummer Ches Smith can alternate tight backbeats with electronic experiment. This spring they announced a new album: YRU Still Here?
