Pengo - Toads Tools Amongst The Tombstones

New York's Pengo is John Schoen, Jason Finkbeiner and Nuuj who form a mighty three-headed avant/drone/noise/psych hydra. Every Pengo release that I have is bewilderingly different from the previous as they restlessly bring together many disparate strains of underground sounds to form a perplexing and at times alienating (but always rewarding) whole. At times, they have been compared to Sun Ra, AMM, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Throbbing Gristle, Suicide, NNCK and Les Rallizes Denudes. At the end of the day, Pengo are like Pengo and nobody out there is like Pengo!

On this LP, released on the awesome Qbico label in 2006, we see them sail off into acid-damaged shamanic Sundurned psychedelic territory. A great album from a really excellent outfit!
