Woe Colossus – “In A Silent Way”
I’ve had this track on a split 12″ for quite a while, but I just noticed the song title yesterday and investigated more. Apparently, it’s not supposed to be a cover of the Miles Davis classic as such, but it was inspired by it. Whatever it’s supposed to be, it’s a glorious epic racket and testament to the wide influence that jazz and Miles in particular has thrown over all types of noi….erm…I mean music!
p.s. Woe Colossus is actually two bands, a collaboration between one of my favourite UK noise-rock bands Hey Colossus and a band I know nothing about called Woe.
p.p.s. It came out as a limited edition 12″ of 200 copies, and I love limited edition 12″s of 200 copies!
p.p.p.s. I listened to it side by side with Miles and couldn’t really hear any similarity, but more discerning musical ears may tell me otherwise.
p.p.p.p.s. some jazz fans may want to skip this post!
