Check out Bill Laswell's rig as used last Sunday in NYC at the Bladerunner show. I can attest, this rig sounds killer!!!! Monster wall of sound.

Looking good. Is there video footage of this?

No video that I can find. When the show started Zorn scolded three audience members for taking video.

Yes, it was pretty bad ass. I've been following all three artists for years and seeing them improv together was a real treat. The set was only 45m though.

Much better than the original Bladerunner shows back in '99/'00 (which also had Frith in the mix). Lombardo's come a long way. We talked after the show and he spoke a lot about how much more he's listened to and studied in the last 10 or 15 years. It really shows. He was phenomenal. Bill had been very curious to see how it would all go down leading up to the initial gig in Australia, and when he came back he was very happy with the gig as well as how much Lombardo's grown.

Hopefully they'll get into a studio one day, but aside from scheduling, a lot of that will likely be up to Zorn as it's more or less his project.
