I Fought the Law

A poster to our Chatter section recently claimed that minimalism has had no real impact on European music. Tell that to the Italian Pierrot-plus-percussion groove machine Sentieri Selvaggi who play music by the Bang on a Can crowd as if it were as natural to them as singing bel canto. David Lang’s totally wacked out and utterly relentless I Fought the Law might be my new all-time party favorite.
