“Laddio Bolocko was a noise rock band from New York City, formed in 1996 by members of Panicsville and the Dazzling Killmen. Their sound has drawn comparisons to experimental rock groups such as This Heat and Can and free jazz musicians like Albert Ayler. The band favored limited releases, offering only small pressings of their original albums."-Wikipedia

"Double-disc which collects all out of print recorded material by NYC group Laddio Bolocko. Drew St. Ivany (guitar) and Ben Armstrong (bass) went on to form the Psychic Paramount, while drummer Blake Fleming was a founding member of the Mars Volta.”

“It's good to see that there are outfits out there that can still do something with chaos and make it interesting.”-AllMusic

“Laddio Bolocko were absolutely one of the most amazing bands I have ever heard, taking the bloated corpse of 'post rock' and filling it with squirming, ultra complex, super dynamic kraut rock and out rock and...uhhhh trout (mask replica) rock? Or whatever. Imagine a modern day This Heat, but with bigger amps, more lo-fi production, free-jazz scud missle saxophone, unlikely melodies, relentless rhythms, ear-ringing dynamics and a sound unlike anything you've ever heard. Sounds good huh? Well, it is. In fact, as far as I'm concerned LB were probably one of the most important and most original rock bands of the last 20 years. High praise indeed, but once you hear this stuff you'll be hard pressed to argue.”-Aqurius Records
