ABOUT AND CONTACT:
Kid Millions a.k.a. John Colpitts, perhaps better known as the drummer for Oneida, has also recorded and released several drums-only records under the name Man Forever. He and older/wiser fire-spitting saxist Jim Sauter are also members of the rockist band Scarcity Of Tanks. Here they appear in duo, with no over-arching structures to contend with, and let fly.
Sauter plays his sax amplified, with effects, and thus can often come on somewhat like a guitarist, though there's no mistaking his sound. If you've heard Borbetomagus or his work with Blue Humans, you'll recognize it immediately. Millions' drumming is indeed energetic, a non-stop series of press rolls and low end rumble, which occasionally sticks out when Sauter pauses for breath. When they're both going full-bore, their sounds seem to blend together into a smeared, feedback-laden mass.
Their debut Boanerges was released in 2012 on Japan's Doubt Music label.
