geronimo Geronimo (CD, £11.25)label: three one g
From East Los Angeles, Geronimo members have played with bands as diverse as Man Is The Bastard, Sleestak and Beck. These reference points have nothing to with Geronimo's self-titled album or the minimalist tribal pounding it provides. This is all the prehistoric horseshit that can be dug out of this worthless skull: Ruiz plays with Beck till the "Zankow zealot" gets signed sans band. Ruiz forms Sleestak, a quartet with Francoso, Gandara and Nelson (Man Is The Bastard + The Bastard Noise). Sleestak releases two full length CDs then dissolves in the late 90's when Ruiz joins Slowrider till its demise in '04 (which included an unmasked member of Brujeria as well as Oiler/Sarah Spoden vet Gomez). Geronimo reunites Francoso/Nelson/Ruiz in '05 with the vision of a powerful minimalist sound for the purpose of a short Japanese tour. Upon return Geronimo works to complete the 2007 self-titled Three One G session that features vocals from Sandor GF, Pete Majors (both from now defunct Harassor) and David Yow (Jesus Lizard, Qui) accompanied by a peculiar hodgepodge of homemade instruments.
