Underground and Improvisation. Alternative Music and Art after 1968

Cactus Truck

John Dikeman (tenor saxopone), Jasper Stadhouders (electric guitar, bass), Onno Govaert (drums)

Based in Amsterdam, this improvisational trio plays a take-no-prisoners, high-energy brand of free jazz strongly influenced by the likes of Albert Ayler and Peter Brötzmann at their most intense. They also claim that their music includes elements of Delta blues, Japanese noise, and No Wave. Cactus Truck self-released an eponymous CD in 2011, followed by a 2012 cassette release (featuring Terrie Ex from The Ex) entitled Macho Sex; their first "official" album, Brand New for China!, arrived in March of 2012 on the Public Eyesore label.
