The Psychic Paramount Live 2002 The Franco-Italian Tour
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Public Guilt
"Power trio" falls way short in describing the nuclear energy generated by the Psychic Paramount. Featuring two former members of phenomenal noise rockers Laddio Bolocko (guitarist Drew St. Ivany and bassist Ben Armstrong), the Psychic Paramount plays frightfully intense instrumental music of the spheres-mainly the sun. On this CD, it sounds as if the players are going to combust as they rage with finesse on these European stages. Like Glenn Branca and The Boredoms, PP are masters of blazing ascension, of rock as a superhuman centrifuge that makes its listeners feel both puny and omnipotent. This is like a money shot that lasts 45 minutes.
