Italian supergroup MOMBU owe a debt of influence to LIGHTNING BOLT. Drummer Antonio Zitarelli is from NEO, and baritone saxophonist Luca T. Mai is from Doklands favourites ZU. Two people is enough for a supergroup, isn't it? If not they've got a few guest musicians who occasionally join in the fun. The fun in question is a devastating mix of grinding metal, free jazz, and African drumming. Mombu work best when they stay in the centre of their influences and don't veer off too far into authenticity. Such is the case with Niger, the title track of their 2013 album. Genres collide with full force into each other in this pulsating barrage of sound. Juddering, abrasive and entirely awesome, MOMBU are making music the likes of which have never been heard before.
