1991, the year that punk broke. Some of it broke into the mainstream—for about ten minutes. But some of it, like Bastro, broke into odd, beautiful shards. During the final year of their existence, Bastro was the power trio of Bundy K. Brown, JohnMcEntire, and David Grubbs. With two Homestead Records LPs (Sing the Troubled Beast and Bastro Diablo Guapo—see DC290CD) and an EP behind them, the group switched gears and concentrated on longer instrumental pieces. Bastro split up at the end of 1991, before making studio recordings of these pieces. What happened afterwards is well- known. Grubbs and Brown started Gastr del Sol, and Brown and McEntire joined Mosquito, who changed their name to Tortoise. Singers across the land started receiving pink slips. Punk rockers and free improvisers and industrial-music freaks formed bands together and started living in the studio. Genre classifications were scorned—until Simon Reynolds dubbed the whole thing “post-rock.” (Whatever!) Antlersis an attempt to represent what Bastro was doing in 1991. It represents a period in which Bastro seemed to be changing from show to show, playing intricately constructed instrumentals with utter abandon. Many of these instrumental pieces later morphed into Gastr del Sol songs–“Antlers” became “A Watery Kentucky,” “Beatlenacht” became “For Soren Mueller,” and “Glistery” became “Dictionary of Handwriting.” Parts of “Educated Fool” resurfaced years later in “Fool Summons Train.” And “Hirscheneck” came from “Counterrev: Bhutan,” a song on the first Bastro EP. Compositions were in flux, with the band soon to follow. These are among its final recordings, but they sound less like death throes than chin scratchings and chargings onward. Antlers consists of cassette recordings made by audience members. It has a rough, blasting-at-you quality that perfectly suits these headlong performances. This enhanced CD also includes live footage of the group in Germany and Holland during their final tour. Apart from Bastro, Gastr del Sol, and Tortoise, Bundy K. Brown has played in Pullman and Directions in Music. As a remixer, he’s whacked tracks by The Sea and Cake, Calexico, and Aerial M. As a producer, he’s worked with Isotope 217, The Chicago Underground Trio, and REX. John McEntire is a member of Tortoise and The Sea and Cake, owns and operates Soma Electronic Music Studios, and has produced Stereolab, Tom Ze, Radian, and heaps more. Before Bastro, David Grubbs was in the Louisville punk group Squirrel Bait. Since then, he’s played in Gastr del Sol, The Red Krayola, and The Wingdale Community Singers, as well as making numerous solo albums.
