Martinete (w/ Enrique Morente)
Kaman Nedev writes: "The show was the result of about two years of talks between SY and
Morente on a possible collaboration.
SY's set, limited to 1 hour, was fast, tight, and rocked like nothing
I'd seen them do for at least 5 years or so. The band was
compenetrated, loose, and swung like a dream, with songs segueing
into each other not unlike the legendary pre-"Daydream Nation" gigs
This was followed by Enrique Morente's live set, and, after a short
break, Morente's band launched into "Martinete" (a complex flamenco
ode sung, of all things, in Latin), with Thurston, Kim, Lee, Steve
and Jim joining him onstage for a circa-13 minute-long piece which
kicked off in its traditional flamenco form, only to slowly build up
into a creeping crescendo of noise and feedback, with Morente's
(still) amazing voice joining into SY's signature guitar-duels like
one more instrument, while Steve joined the flamenco percussionists
for the poly-rhythmic coda that closed the set and the concert."
