Mo' Frisell

Bill seems to have used both the 1/2 and 2x plus the reverse fairly
often. Going back and forth between all of these in creating a loop (at
least from what I remember).

Another guy who does this is Nels Cline. (Recommend his trio CDs for
those who are interested-stay away if heavy noise damage bothers you.
Otherwise a really interesting take on the guitar-"jazz" filtered
through Sonic Youth, Mahavishnu and Hendriz . . . occasionally played
with egg whisks . . . an intense auditory experience)

Naked City:

Elektra Musician CD of the same name and (I believe) something called
"Torture Garden."

4 other on the Japanese Avant label (home to some Buckethead stuff too
plus many other great things-expensive, but can scrounge up mail order,
etc.): "Grand Guignol," "Radio," "Absinthe" and "Heretic." Almost all of
the stuff from the Elektra Musician stuff is covered on GG. The band
covers a VERY WIDE amount of territory and is not for everyone-some very
free improv and a lot of stuff that is very quick jump cuts, influenced
by Zorn's love of cartoon music (Carl Stalling). Also of note on these
CDs the amazing drumming of Joey Baron-a guy who came up playing with
Carmen McCRae doing speed metal drumming. Awesome.

John Zorn's label Tzadik has rereleased "Torture Garden" and "Leng
Tshce" (horribly mispelled and my least favorite of all their stuff) as
a double CD. Since both CDs come in at around 30 minutes though . . .
