DRED SCOTT (Buy CDs by this artist)
An Instrumental Accident (Red Spot) 1981

As noted on the back cover, these three tracks (total running time: 45 minutes) were "randomly recorded live in a studio on a mono cassette." The quartet named for the slave at the center of a historic Supreme Court decision turns out an astonishing ruckus here, resembling nothing so much as an overamped band attempting to tune up before playing. Low spot: a soporific version of "Waiting for the Man."

[Ira Robbins]
