“the real showstopper is “Old Habits Die Hard,” another entry in the long list of cooking rock songs that sound like they should have been hits — and that in reality nobody has ever heard of.” Eugene Chadbourne
“The brutal-jazz power trio Schnellertollermeier doesn’t screw around. Their uncompromising attitude is even apparent before you hear a note of their music — it’s right there in that deliberate tongue-twister of a name. Their fresh and uncompromising mix of jazz, punk, rock, sound and free improvised music, combined with great musicianship, interplay and a lot of energy, immediately hits the bullseye!
The three men behind the music, guitarist Manuel Troller, bassist Andi Schnellmann, and drummer David Meier, are all eclectic musicians. Schnellmann earned a degree from the Jazz School of Lucerne; Troller studied with British guitar legend Fred Frith and has collaborated with famed U.S. jazz drummer/composer Gerry Hemingway, among others; Meier’s ability to bring his own voice into many different musical contexts has made him one of the most sought-after drummers of his generation and he has toured in most parts of Europe, as well as Russia, China and Japan.”
“Let the Good Times Roll” is due Feb. 10 on Rounder, and is available for pre-order
