Advocate of the snarling downtown scene and saxophonist extraordinaire Tim Berne has released many albums during his career. Some of them have vanished from stores completely (for those of you who still like to check out stores). But fear not, he and his team at Screwgun Records have been posting numerous collections on their website here for downloading. Not all of it is old and obscure, but what is here may surprise you. Of particular interest to yours truly was his collaboration with Bill Frisell, which has probably been out of print as long as most of PopMatters’ readers have been alive.


And for those of you who enjoyed mad guitarist David Torn’s album Prezens, on which Berne played, you can inexpensively purchase Slipped on a Bar; three pieces from the sessions that were left off the album. Don’t worry, they’re long.
