Cock E.S.P. - Historia De La Musica Cock CD.  Here's a band that I haven't seen mentioned among "serious" musical circles often, but that is likely to change with H’istoria De La Musica Cock’. As a quick introduction for those unfamiliar, Cock E.S.P. is a Minneapolis-based act specializing in areas generally associated with noise music and performance art. At times their work leans on somewhat adolescent humor, which is partly or mostly why they aren't already widely admired among avant-noise aficionados. ‘Historia De La Musica Cock’ is easily one of the best noise-related recordings of the last decade. Presented as a tribute to the last century of experimental music, it succeeds both as an homage and a compelling album on its own terms. You can frequently hear the influences being referenced with feedback and electronic noise often interjected as building blocks that add sonic weight which give the whole recording continuity. I find myself tempted to start listing off the wide range of bands/styles that make quick appearances, but that's part of the creative joy of getting to know this record, in that you want to listen to it again. There are quiet passages, though the emphasis is increasingly on speed and abrasive textures as the disc moves on. This is a record of extremes covering a wide range of styles/influences and also featuring a huge list of guest performers. There is compositional creativity and depth to keep your ears interested and you can’t say that about alot of noise related projects. The packaging is incredibly thoughtful, too, featuring 2 great art panels made by Jobeth Ahlborn and Raws (both of whom also play on the album). If you like brutal musical romps through avant-garde territory, ‘Historia De La Musica Cock’ is a must-have for your collection.
