Offonoff's Slap And Tickle, featuring drummer Paal Nilssen-Love, bassist Massimo Pupillo and guitarist Terrie Ex, follows their prvious outting "Clash" with two epic tracks of rampaging free-rock, captured during the group's live performance at the 2007 Kongsberg International Jazz Festival. Split into two tracks "Slap" and "Tickle", the album is a full-scale sensory assault, weaving and dodging between-under-over-around all the critical comparisons with Black Flag, Pere Ubu, Sonic Youth and all their kindred. This is an album about expressive sound as sound, not in any obvious sense about musicality as compositional or musical performance. This is the sound of rock stripped to its marrow.

The group did four shows in Italy in the fall of 2005. During these gigs the trio was struck by the immediate interplay, so powerful, as if they had been playing together for decades. Pupillo, Ex and Nilssen-Love decided to establish OFFONOFF. If possible to describe, the music is in the midst between Last Exit, James Blood Ulmer, Sonic Youth and Locust. Noise, intense, hard, rapid shifts and contrasts, heavy grooves, all free improvised. Terrie Ex is mostly known for his work with the Dutch rock group The Ex. The Ex is probably one of Europe's most interesting and inventive rock bands that has been pushing the limits for the last 25 years. Terrie Ex also runs his own label where he´s collaborated with Han Bennink amongst others. The label was also responsible for putting out the incredible Konono No...
