 JR.com: John Zorn - Filmworks VI: 1996 in Music: Avant-Garde/Downtown:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
John Zorn's FILMWORKS VI features music for three films: "Anton, Mailman," "Mechanics of the Brain," and "The Black Glove." The first set of songs is surprisingly laid-back and features the ever-extraordinary guitar work of Marc Ribot backed by the inventive rhythmic support of bassist Greg Cohen and percussionist Cyro Baptista.
Ribot is also on hand for the chaotic music of "Mechanics of the Brain," but here violinist Mark Feldman and cellist Erik Friedlander (playing like a paired-down Kronos Quartet) are in the foreground, with Ikue Mori and Zorn providing background beats and sound effects.
Although the three sets of music are drastically different, it's this diversity that once again reinforces Zorn's status as a major modern composer.

Although geographically miles away, Lamb were an integral part of the Bristol sound with their music sitting somewhere between Portishead and Roni Size.
The first time I heard Lamb, was a couple of months ago when a friend of mine played me Gorecki (beautiful song!) I was so impressed with the song I ordered 'Best Kept Secrets' and it is the best purchase I've made in years.
I have been trying to put my finger on exactly what it is that makes Lamb's music so special, and I think its something to do with the contrast of Andy's hard hitting breaks/dnb production with Lou's beautiful, emotional lyrics, especially on the earlier parts of BKS.
