Steve Mackay

Steve Mackay and Radon Ensemble, Death By a Thousand Cuts, Moth, Jazzhandzz – Glass House:
Steve Mackay is the man whose tenor sax solos from The Stooges Funhouse have been planted deep in your psyche for years – that collision of free jazz skronking, r&b honking, and the hard noir-ish sound of illicit activities in shady interiors during the wee hours. Are ya hearing “Los Angles Blues” in your head right now as well? He also has worked with Commander Cody, Snakefinger, and a number of other notables. A few years ago the Radon Collective found him and started releasing his experimental solo albums. Get there early for some of New York’s better esoteric ensembles. New Jersey duo Death by a Thousand Cuts’ spacious dissonant atmospheric blasts are definitely worth checking out. The explorations of the trio known as Jazz Handzz are brought to you by members of Stay Fucked and Necking plus David Moss who sometimes performs with William Parker. As for Moth, you know as much as I do.
