Jonathan Kane is a Downtown NYC legend -- as co-founder of the no-wave behemoth Swans, and the rhythmic thunder behind the massed-guitar armies of Rhys Chatham and the rock excursions of La Monte Young -- and one of the hardest-hitting drummers on the planet.

With February, his first solo record, Kane summons Swans' concussive wallop, Chatham's dense guitar strata (Kane even manages a rollicking version of Chatham's notorious "Guitar Trio"), and the perpetual propulsion of 70s krautrockers Neu, then steers it all head-on into...

the blues. Make no mistake about it: Kane is a bluesman, and beneath the high-decible bombast of these five instrumentals, he's powering guitar-driven minimalism into the blues, and the blues into guitar-driven harmonic maximalism.

So roll with Jonathan Kane down his Highway 61 of the mind -- it's the shape of blues to come.
