Bill Laswell has made so many records and worked with so many people over the years, it would be hard to name them all here. However I still think some of my favourite work by him was on the 1981 debut Material album, “Memory Serves”.
Taking influences from punk, hip hop, jazz, disco, world music, its very hard to categorise the bands sound, but it works and works well. Material were Laswell and Michael Beinhorn, but they also inlisted the help of many others, including Fred Frith, Sonny Sharrock, Henry Kaiser, Billy Band, Anton Fier, and even a young Whitney Houston later in their career.
The track we have for download features Beinhorn on vocals and is classic Material!
