Last Exit is a jazz 'super-group' composed of the innovative electric guitarist; Sonny Sharrock, fusion drummer and vocalist; Ronald Shannon Jackson, avant-garde saxophonist; Peter Brötzmann, and bass guitarist Bill Laswell from the band Material.
Ronald Shannon Jackson, is a renown drummer and composer. Last Exit is the jazz-metal hybrid quartet that he formed to create sonic mayhem. Their motto was; "tear everything up, chew on it, and spit it out!"
This quartet was so frenetic and bombastic for a Jazz band that they even named one album; "Head-first Into The Flames!"
Last Exit was not the first "free-jazz" band, but definitely was the loudest. They were an improvising quartet that reveled in sweat and fury.
Stunned critics called it "HEAVY METAL BE-BOP."
This quartet could play rock, funk, and "straight-ahead" jazz.
They were active from 1986 to the early 1990's, releasing 6 live albums recorded mostly on tours throughout Europe. They were very much acclaimed in Europe by the sophisticated art crowd.
They were the "Punk-Jazz" alternative to 'cocktail jazz'.
The band was famous for its unrelenting musical ferocity.
Every one of their albums is given a five-star review at Amazon, except when the sound quality of the recording process was poor, then they still got 4 stars for the power of the music!
These four musical virtuoso's improvised their songs on the spot. Almost all their albums were recorded spontaneously during live concerts in this eccentric manner.
Here is my favorite video performance below.

The book of GG is a violent, expletive-laden, anarchic punk rock that is the perfect antidote to today's pop punk.
Born Jesus Christ Allin on August 29, 1956 in Lancaster, N.H. GG Allin did absolutely nothing within his relatively short lifetime to endear anyone.
Reports of his dangerous and repellent stage antics reached the ears of anyone with stomach enough to hear them.
GG reveled in this image of the law hating, substance abusing, angry rock n’ roll drifter who loved nothing, and no one. Except music.
GG’s erratic and painfully strict religious upbringing *hence naming your newborn baby; Jesus Christ*, has long been quoted as the reason he became such an angry and rebellious young man.
Although GG contests this in some interviews, it’s hard to believe that it didn't contribute somewhat to GG’s stage persona and lifestyle- which were one and the same thing.
He relished controversy, the bottle smashing, drug abuse, and highly illegal actions that were always part and parcel of a GG Allin show.
The show WAS GG Allin.
He lived that lifestyle, and the way he performed was not an act.
His greatest work, for those still interested in what artistic value anyone like this could possibly offer, is best exhibited on the album; "Freaks, Faggots, Drunks And Junkies."
This album is balls to the wall punk rock. From 'My Revenge' to 'My Bloody Mutilation', every song screams pure rage and genuine angst.
Accompanied by a top-notch back-up band led by Johnny X, and Charlie Infection of the Boston punk band Psycho, all the songs are written and arranged by GG Allin, Johnny X, Charlie Infection and Ed Lynch. Bill Normal, also appears on the album, on four of the tracks playing some deliberately atonal synthesizer. Normal shines on the fiercely revealing cut; "Crash and Burn".
It is this album that best embodies GG’s filthy, over the top, and often times amusing lyrics.
If you give it a few complete listens, and not just one cursory listen, you will find this is one journey to the dark side that you won’t soon forget.
Don't listen to this album in a hurry. The poor production; droning distorted bass, rattling drums, and guitars that are bar-chorded are intentionally lo-fi.
The angry and scratchy voice of Allin wails over the top of the instruments, sometimes poignantly and filled with personal regret, and then with raw passion unbridled by any respect for human decency.
Lyrically the topics include; rape, murder, suicide, bi-sexuality, and pedophilia. But mostly it's drugs, of any and every kind that are his supreme masochist pleasure.
"Freaks, Faggots, Drunks And Junkies" is a tour de force of punk rock. The poor production really gives a realistic edge to the overall atmosphere, making every teeth-shattering, violent murder description seem all too plausible in this tapestry of decadence.
Above all else, this album is the sound of true rebellion. Rebellion of the most self-revealing and personal kind.
Indeed, the songs are simple, but that’s what punk is; simple, catchy riffs. Nowhere is this better witnessed than on the song 'Die When You Die', which makes its’ mark with a riff that is 3 notes, a drumbeat with no breaks, and a bass-line that never changes.
"If you’ve got AIDS, spread it around and take some lives!", that lyric may lack intelligence, and compassion for ones fellow man, but it truly epitomizes the depth of his angst.
At no point does this album lack any of the attitude and inspiration that makes punk, punk.
It’s never going to be hailed as a masterpiece of punk, but that doesn't mean it isn't any good.
The album is an insane yet ironically coherent smashup of punk ideals and rock n’ roll attitude.
If you've grown weary of modern, glossy pop-punk and poser celeb-punk-rockers and are in need of something a lot edgier, from the era when lower east side NYC punk ruled the entire genre, then this release is definitely something to consider.
Always rancid, consistently inspired, and definitely a journey you’ll want to take at least once in your lifetime.
A true artist is not always the performer who makes you feel good. An artist can challenge you and awaken thoughts and feelings in you, that you didn't even know you had.
For Copernicus, there is only the base reality, and that is non-reality itself: Nothing Exists.
Humanity does not exist. Nothing can exist except the fundamental subatomic still undiscovered particle that never changes.
This is "Immediate Eternity" according to Copernicus.
It's like stepping outside of your body and observing your illusion.
Copernicus does not care that much about music, rather he cares about this philosophy and the thematic lyrics that music inspires in him.
The music is only there to inspire the creation of the lyrics and to help these ideas to be better communicated.
In "Deeper", Copernicus moves deeper into his quantum world theory but still reveals his caring and concern about the human condition.
"Deeper" maintains a toehold in the common view of reality but with his deeper more powerful evolution into the quantum. An evolution Copernicus is attempting to awaken in us all.
Let's take a look at some of the songs on "Deeper."
In "Oh God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" there is Copernicus' desperate plea for help in achieving what he wants to achieve; an awakening in us of the true nature of reality.
Politics enter in "Son of a Bitch from the North" as does history in "Chichen-Itza-Elvis".
These are the two standout tracks on the disc. Both songs are intense and passionate pieces. Mankind is actually in a hopeless state, deriving false hope from believing whatever the television programs lead us to desire and believe. And this makes Copernicus sincerely angry.
Conversely his vision of the quantum reality as human time passes us by in "Disco Days are Over" is really quite touching and melancholy.
In "Hurl Silence" a full quantum leap into the atomic world is achieved, and in "Once, Once, Once Again" the angry rebellious Copernicus returns filled with his typical anger at the sleepwalking, programmed world that he sees all around him.
"The Death of Joe Apples" and "They Own Everything" initiate an undercurrent of political social revolution that underlies all of Copernicus' political views.
In "Atom by Atom", we are taken into the quantum world boarding a spaceship.
Finally in "Come to It" we feel that all his efforts and struggles to awaken mankind can lead an intelligent individual to the truth of reality, but if only they make the attempt to individually evolve and "Come to It".
The entire album is often very intense, self-righteously angry and rebellious. The backdrop for all this venom is a jazzy prog-rock ensemble of talented session musicians and background singers, who were given free reign to improvise as he does.
Copernicus has said in interviews that two of his greatest teachers in life were; one, a dog, and two, a drunk in a bar, "but you'd have to be open enough to see their light" he says.
"Very often a piece of wisdom only passes by once, and then never again."
"Deeper" is a profound listening experience. In 1987, when this album was recorded, the quark had not even yet been discovered. With the Higgs-Boson projects and the scientific discovery at CERN perhaps this mad scientist Copernicus was really ahead of his time.
Hence the poet and scholar Joe Smalkowski has taken on an apt stage name for himself: Copernicus.
Perhaps all the wrath, vitriol and anger are justified. There is at the forefront of our shared reality indeed a sleepwalking and programmed culture. A "dead life" that most people lead.
For the unaware and unawakened, maybe the truth is best served raw, on an uncensored platter.
"Yesterday as I went out of the house
I saw her body lying down as quiet as a mouse
She was lying face down in the sewer.
What you do?
I got up closer and realized that I knew her.
What you see?
All her organs coming from her inside.
That's nasty-Slashed up skin, her sliced-up hide.
Tell me some more!
I turned her over and saw the tire tracks on her head.
That's when I realized...Mommy was dead."

Suicidal Tendencies (also known as S.T. or simply Suicidal) is an American Punk crossover Thrash Metal band founded by singer Mike Muir.
Their origins go back as far as 1981.
Their style and sound clearly and proudly represents their multi-racial, gritty hometown of Venice Beach, California.
Their look and image is best described as; slacker-beach-pothead-skateboarder meets east L.A. gang-banger. That's the first thing that attracted me to them. I had to find out what their music sounded like after seeing their photo. It all looked so genuine.
Suicidal blew my mind upon first listen.
They daringly incorporated a wide variety of styles into their sound and I was overjoyed.
I love Jazz-Fusion and any music that tries to meld more than one style into a whole new sound. ST did this to perfection, showing an enthusiastic love of all styles. I most notably heard; punk-rock, speed-metal, hardcore, thrash, heavy metal, and even reggae in their sound.
They themselves have cited; The Ramones, the Sex Pistols, Black Flag, Motörhead, War, and Bob Marley as huge influences.
Although band members are going to change when you have a 30-year legacy of making music, many notable musicians have recorded with the band including; Brooks Wackerman younger brother of Allan Holdsworth's drummer; Chad Wackerman. Brooks is currently in A7X, Jimmy DeGrasso (Megadeth), Robert Trujillo (Metallica), and as of 2016 Dave Lombardo (Slayer). This shows how much respect the group and their fearless leader Muir have earned over the years. Many great musicians including some of those named got their first big break playing in Suicidal. Mikey (Muir) never goes out on tour without a top notch band worthy of representing their legacy and reputation.

I believe we're all goats, or sheep. You are either a cat person or a dog person. You are a Brad Pitt or a George Clooney kinda gal. Bradley Cooper or Paul Rudd. It's not the same thing.
A Janet or Chrissy, Maryanne or Ginger kinda guy. Angelina or Jennifer, Pizza or hot dogs. Shrimp fried rice or Sushi. No one is both. Not in your heart of hearts. YOU KNOW you prefer one to the other. We all do, but we aren't all honest enough to tell you which one.
We're so smart and diplomatic. So nice and friendly. We like it all, we like everything.
We're so full of shit.
I like people who have the decency, or the guts rather, to tell you what they are right from the start. To tell you what they think of you right off the bat. Think of how valuable that kind of information is. Whether you agree with it or not it's valuable.
"Honesty ain't exactly cheap" a wise man once said.
Only those who truly love you will give you the truth.
The rest think they are "protecting you" by letting you live in a lie. Our sycophants and false friends, allowing you your self-delusions. Enabling you.
I'm an honesty addict. I don't care how brutal the truth is...
I WANT IT.
That's my credo and I think Seth would concur.
Who in the fuck is Seth?
Seth Putnam is the founder of a punk-hardcore rock band out of the Boston suburbs, called Anal Cunt.
*Stylized as AxCx.
They don't take themselves seriously at all, and they don't stand for anything. But they always give you the truth. And that's what's so refreshing. Their total lack of pretension. It's the essence of punk.
It's raw, uncensored, brutal music alright...brutally honest.
And brutally funny.
They stand for nothing.
So why would I waste my time with it? What value do they have?
Not much, just; Freedom, Joy, and Passion.
Ironically that's what's left when you no longer have anything to prove. When you remove all the bullshit. You simply feel good. Liberated. Joy.
And hearing AxCx does just that. They make me feel good.
They make their listening audience feel the same.
Humor is the key to AxCx.
Humor, freedom, passion and joy.
With song titles like; "Hitler Was A Sensitive Man", "I Sold Your Dog To A Chinese Take Out Restaurant", and "Everyone Should Be Killed", they rate 10/10 on a punk scale for humor, and get an A plus for in-your-face rebellious attitude.
They had me, and most of their fans hooked from their song titles alone.
Then you include their satirical covers of songs completely different from their punk style including; M.C. Hammer "U Can't Touch This", The Bee Gees "Stayin' Alive", and "The Theme From Three's Company".
At any given moment in a raunchy, blistering fast punk song by them you get an interpolation of the theme from "The Love Boat" or the theme from "Wonder Woman", pure 70's kitsch. Totally hilarious.
Add in their versatility and commitment to song-structure, grinding riffs, consistent drum thrashing, and impassioned vocal and instrumental performance, and they are a very important and competent punk band to check out online.
They are also recognized as a seminal "Grindcore" band. A founding influence in one of punk/metal's most important sub-genres.
No longer recording since the death of Seth Putnam their fearless leader in 2011 of a heart attack, they are still listened to regularly by Grindcore fanatics and punk-rock experts because they were so prolific during their era. (1988 to 2011).
Usually in a trio lineup of; drums, guitar, and Seth's screaming, belligerent, often indecipherable vocals, they recorded over 300 songs, and nearly 40 albums (including the compilations, and EP's).
Seth even had a drug overdose in 2004, went into a coma for a month and came back to tour. How's that for artistic and musical commitment? (See video below).
The most committed, devoutly punk-grindcore experience that you will ever laugh your ass off to.
Ten years in the making and set for a nationwide release in April of 2016, actor Don Cheadle will portray legendary jazz musician Miles Davis in this brilliant new film Miles Ahead.
Not only will Don Cheadle be walking a mile in Miles' shoes, it is a film Cheadle himself co-wrote and directed.
The film will give us an in-depth look into the life of the legendary jazz innovator as seen by the infamous Rolling Stone journalist who documented the artist’s comeback in the most honest way possible.
With a backdrop of New York City during the seventies. The biopic isn't meant to be your typical life and times biography. It is not a quick survey of the legend’s life nor is it a visual discography of his musical contributions. According to Cheadle, the film is meant to zoom in on a single and interesting part of the artist’s life. A time when he began to wash away, spiral down a drug filled staircase, and ultimately lose himself in his own rage. The film gives us pieces of Miles' personal life and his struggle.
It is a film of failure and then redemption, two things we can all relate to in our own lives.
