It would be nice if more of our elders gravitated toward locking saxophone horns rather than rhetorical ones, but until that happens, it’s Borbetomagus to the rescue. Coming together in upstate New York in 1979, the trio of Don Dietrich, Donald Miller and Jim Sauter — whose signature move comes when Dietrich and Sauter put the bells of their saxophones together — have, through records like Barbed Wire Maggots and Snuff Jazz, carved out a singularly brutal sonic landscape in which they have few equals. Tonight, appearing in Los Angeles for the first time in more than 20 years, Borbetomagus perform, answer questions and unveil Jef Mertens’ documentary on the trio, A Pollock of Sound, featuring interviews with Bull Tongue writer Byron Coley, drummer Chris Corsano, Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, Japanese noise supergroup Hijokaidan and others.
