and the devil
way back

i'm not saying
i'm not saying
its always been easy
because it hasn't

it hasn't

but when
i've needed him
he's always been there
whispering in my ear
putting things in my hand
sometimes pointy things
sometimes fleshy things
sometimes well...

i mean
we've had
our disagreements
we've had our disagreements

fr instance
he believes
in God.

Houston - The Defenestration Unit - Events Search

Houston - The Defenestration Unit - Events Search

It’s hard to preview a show by a group of musicians like the frequently expanding and/or contracting sextet that calls itself The Defenestration Unit. Were this band assigned that task, they’d likely shrug the whole thing off as missing the point. Besides, they probably only have a slightly better idea of what’s actually going to happen onstage than you do. As their name implies, the group is in the habit of willful and often joyful discarding of everything that is usually said to define a “band” – they have no particular set-list, instrumentation, or sound, or even fixed membership. Often reductively labeled as free-jazz, the group cartwheels freely through whatever sonic fields fit their fancy that night, though you might well detect the traces of a Sun Ra theme. So let’s just try to leave them with that most general of descriptors: “improvisational music.” And add that Defenestration Unit will stretch your sonic consciousness.
