In the Year of the Pig

When: Wed., July 21, 9:30 p.m. 2010

If you catch the reference of this band's handle to the 1971 John Lee Hooker LP of the same name, you might or might not be surprised by the music the aged Brooklyn quartet makes: Just as Hooker warped and stretched the blues sometimes past the 10-minute mark then, Endless Boogie slows and bends, drones and doodles with classic rock structures. Paul Major sports a playful guffaw like the one you hear during ZZ Top's "La Grange," while he and Jesper Eklow share simpatico guitar predilections that allow them to wring every last overtone and variation from basic and familiar progressions. In the Year of the Pig beats a body of Krautrock, metal and noise with two drummers, two basses and a guitar that serves as the cat o' nine tails. —Grayson Currin
