Just after having released their critically acclaimed new album “Garage”, The Thing teams up with their old friend Joe McPhee and Norwegian garage rockers Cato Salsa Experience. The meeting between The Thing and Cato Salsa Experience started at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in Norway last year, when The Thing was offered the chance to invite their favourite rock band Cato Salsa Experience, for a special collaboration. This mini album is recorded live at Kongsberg Jazzfestival. The concert was such a big success that the bands decided to both tour and to record an album together. The album will be released late in the autumn 2005 on Smalltown Superjazzz.

In the meantime check out this sandwich containing 2 tracks written by Cato Salsa Experience, Led Zeppelin`s “Whole Lotta Love”, Yeah Yeah Yeahs` “Artstar” (which The Thing also did on their Garage album) as well as Don Ayler`s beautiful “Our Prayer”. The result is pure magic. The energy from both the the audience and the bands is unbelievable. The two bands perfectly blends the 1960`s raw garage rock and the free jazz movement from the same period, and creates the perfect fusion. A match made in heaven.

The Thing has earlier released an album with the 66 year old free jazz legend Joe McPhee titled “She Knows” on Carzy Wisdom/Universal. The Thing is now out with “Garage” and album that has received great critical acclaim from among others The Observer, The Independent, Sunday Times, Uncut, Straight No Chaser, Vice Magazine, Jazzwise and Mojo.

Cato Salsa Experience has released 2 albums, “The Fruit Is Still Fresh” and “A Good Tip For A Good Time”, both released on Garalda Records in Europe, Emperor Norton Records in US and on Sony in Japan. They band are currently working on their third album due summer 2005.

About Cato Salsa Experience & The Thing With Joe Mcphee:

The meeting between The Thing and Cato Salsa Experience started at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in Norway in 2004, when The Thing was offered the chance to invite their favorite rock band Cato Salsa Experience, for a special collaboration. The show was a success and this also led to the critically acclaimed EP “Sounds Like A Sandwich” on Smalltown Superjazzz. It was immediately decided that the two bands and the legend should go into studio to record a fullenght album. The result is the self titled album “Two Bands And A Legend”. On the album the bands do their own versions of tracks like “Who The Fuck” by PJ Harvey, “Baby Talk” by James Blood Ulmer among others. The CD is the perfect pairing of the dirty 60s influenced free-jazz that of The Thing and the raw and minimalistic garage rock of Cato Salsa Experience. Most tracks on this album was recorded in one take only with no overdubs.
