Caspar Brötzmann Massaker - Home (1995)

Son of Free-Jazz legend Peter Brotzmann, whose music I also highly recommend.  Caspar's music is just as chaotic as his fathers, only he expresses it with a electric guitar as opposed to a saxophone.  His style is kind of hard to put a label on.  It's got elements of noise, experimental, drone, improv and just old fashioned rock and roll.  Only it's cranked up at distorted, ear-shattering volumes.  He's seemed to have completely disappeared from the scene for the last decade or so.  Anyone know what happened to him?  This album would probably be the result of Jimi Hendrix having had a few more bad acid trips as opposed to good ones.
