Marc Ribot Ceramic Dog (2014)


"... Ribot has held down straight gigs since then, but his work has tended toward the avant-garde. That's much less true on the song-oriented second album by the trio he calls Ceramic Dog. Where Ceramic Dog's first album was what you might expect from a Marc Ribot power trio, long on experiment and short on tune, Your Turn is a straight rock album sonically and structurally, except that it's half instrumentals. And the six lyrics are doozies. My favorite is 'Masters of the Internet.' If you're one of those people who download music without paying for it, you pop up in the very first words you'll hear. Marc Ribot is a political guy — he's long been a union activist on behalf of independent musicians. ..."
