One of the finest of trip-rock bands to emerge in the late 1990s, Escapade are an instrumental improv combo from New York, and this CD documents their very first live gig in the form of a single jam that trips from early Djam Karet realms via the Krautrock jams of early Ash Ra Tempel and Can, but with their own unique sound that also frazzles off into weird electronics, sizzling along with remarkable drums, guitars, etc. A classic slice of instrumental rock that really - as the American's say - "kicks ass!".
