Black Pus is a jazz outfit in every sense of the word. It consists of frantic, ever changing, scattershot drum beats with heavy doses of tourtured saxophones dunked in steaming vats of noise. Ugly music, yes, but its utterly chaotic nature creates a quite enjoyable dark atmosphere. Let the endless streams of snare blasts and horn squelches flow over your ears, not worrying to pick out single notes, but rather viewing it as constantly shifting chunks of sounds. Best when played at ridiculously high volumes.
Judging from his musical catelogue, Chippendale appears content to break music down and rebuild it as he sees fit. Rarely fitting into existing categories or genres, he is a true innovator and is setting many new standards for noise and jazz music in the new century.
