Artist: KID MILLIONS & JIM SAUTER
Title: Fountain
Format: LP
Label: Family Vineyard
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
“Drummer Kid Millions and saxophonist Jim Sauter vaporize the annals of rock n roll n jazz into pulsating feedback/propulsion on Fountain -- their second album.  Across six pieces they explore massively hypnotic tonal harmonics and torrential rhythms. This is hardcore abstraction from two New York sherpas yanking us headlong into a third-eye odyssey, surpassing altitudes merely attempted by others. Kid is founding member of Oneida and the ace behind the percussion-focusedMan Forever. Sauter is synonymous with the 35-year juggernautBorbetomagus -- pioneers of sound/jazz vivisection and inexorable vision. Since 2012 these two pushed forth this magnificent grandeur, merging physical power/sweat and sculpted electricity/stretched skins. While both are known for feats of extreme artistic endurance, as a duo they opt for ferocious concentration -- a savage pop-style of density and texture. Comparisons to any live-free-or-die drum-sax duo is moot here. In whiffs, Fountain is maybe reminiscent of Fushitsushas heaviest but more likely the final descent of that plane full of rugby players who gobbled each other up after crashin into the Andes in 72. Either way, it makes asses shake. As an omnipotent duo, neither Kid or Sauter anchors the other, instead they smash the fulcrum and spin perpetually in free-fall. Sauter extracts new techniques and structures from his howling amplified tenor sax. On “Turkana” he builds layers of gnarled drones like some goddamn Dream Syndicate lasagna, while on “Vertical Sprint” Kid weaves polyrhythms and stuttering cross-beats around/into the heart of horn shards. Theres zero gravity here.” - Family Vineyard.

Artist: KID MILLIONS & JIM SAUTER
Title: Million Dollar Band/Bull Run
Format: 7"
Label: Feeding Tube
Country: USA
Price: $9.00
"The extreme sonic textures of Borbetomagus Jim Sauter sounds bitchin in this kind of compressed environment. Playing in duo with the multi-directional thumping of Kid Millions, the sound is just a blaze of energy that expands in many known directions. Jims tone goes from pure saxophonic terror to something that sounds more like an over-amped guitar to synth-like shrieking. The pair throw down even harder than they have on previous sessions, and the world is a much more bruised place for their focus. Cover art is by the redoubtable Bill Nace" -- Byron Coley (2016) Edition of 300.
