Joining him in this endeavor was Fred Frith (Henry Cow, Massacre), Bill Frisell, Wayne Horvitz, Joey Baron, & occasionally Yamatsuka Eye (Boredoms) & Mike Patton (Mr. Bungle), the latter only contributing for live performances during the Grand Guignol & reunion eras.

Naked City released their self-titled debut on Elektra Nonesuch Records in 1989 which featured a photo of a dead gangster borrowed from Weegee's book Naked City. After running into trouble with Elektra on account of the controversial S&M bondage pictures Zorn intended to use as the cover for their sophomore effort Torture Garden, Zorn turned to Shimmy Disc & his own labels Tzadik & Avant to harbor Naked City.

Naked City continued to be prolific up until 1993 when Zorn

Warthur
This is essentially what happens when a jazz band decides to play avant-garde rock and roll, with basically straight-ahead rockabilly numbers made weird with odd little solos and outbursts here and there. The overall sonic effect isn't too dissimilar from the wilder moments of Mr. Bungle - indeed, John Zorn and Trey Spruance would end up working together from time to time in future - though with a slightly more consistent "anchor" in early garage rock.

It's all very impressive, but I'd add a couple of caveats. The first is that if you are interested in this album because of thw participants' jazz work, you should keep in mind that this doesn't sound even slightly like jazz. The second is that I sneakily kind of think the garage rock side of the band is just fine and all that weird soloing just makes the album odd for odd's sake. This is a sentiment which, if course, is entirely antithetical to the experiment here, but I just feel like the experiment just isn't quite my cup of tea.

Painful, abrasive stuff here. A musical companion to the torture by a thousand knives that is a notorious blemish on Chinese history, and the pain that Naked City associates with it in this 'song' is extreme. Beginning as a drone doom piece that evolves with some dynamic drum work, with feedback driven guitar and bass lines - which run through the whole 31 minute piece, then leading at its exact middle point to screams, of pain and agony, which depending on how solid your appreciations for avant-grade are, are either in a league of their own, or the reason to turn the song off right then and there and abandon the CD to the dusty corner. It's first and foremost an endurance test, which for some, myself partially included makes it lose some of its potential. It's also quite a simplistic idea, and indeed if it had been any longer I doubt I would treat it with the positivity I do. But be warned, it is not enjoyable, but it is original. So if you're looking for something extreme that you don't intend to play often, but occasionally will indulge in the challenge, this may be for you. If not, stay away.
