Ceramic Dog

Marc Ribot is one of the most versatile guitarists on the New York jazz and avant-garde scene; he has worked together with such different musicians as Tom Waits und John Zorn, Marianne Faithfull and McCoy Tyner. In 2008 Ribot founded his band Ceramic Dog, an explosive power trio with a noisy, rough-edged sound that is a little reminiscent of early Sonic Youth, but can also sound nuanced and contemplative. Ceramic Dog plays music that is essentially a strictly organised chaos of harsh guitar riffs and stoical, complex funk rhythms, coupled with political commentaries and absurd humour.
