On The Warrior, Jooklo Duo's 2010 seven-inch for Northern Spy, David Vanzan's percussion screeches and skitters forward and away from Virginia Genta's feral, blistering saxophone like fire ants retreating in the face of some enormous foreign enemy. If this is jazz, that word also means "bananas." Which is why, throughout the Italy-based duo's lengthy string of releases and performances, it's been punk rock's wild-eyed soul that seems to goad Jooklo Duo toward the psychedelic godhead. Genta and Vanzan fill their sound with the chaos of ideas. With guitarist Bill Nace, who will join Jooklo Duo for a third, trio set.
