Ron Anderson's Pak (Tzadik recording artist)
Self Destruct Button
Andrew Klimeyk

Ron Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist intuitive music maker whose compositions, bands, collaborations and solo projects combine heavy rock intensity with improvisation and a level of compositional complexity rarely matched. For his third CD with his band PAK, he has avoided the electric guitar and orchestrated a rich and orchestral sound with keyboards, strings, horns and electronics. One of the most maddening releases he has ever created, Secret Curve is mind blower, and one of Ron's masterpieces. Featuring some of the best players out of the downtown scene, it is a brilliant new direction for this brave musical explorer who has worked with artists as diverse as Elliott Sharp, Sun City Girls, Otomo Yoshihide, James Chance and Haco.

Self Destruct Button "a master class in experimental post-punk instrumentation, where lyrics are no longer necessary…but the addition of the distorted sung/screamed group vocals really bump their sound into a more accessible realm – who doesn’t like to sing along to an anthem here and there? The guitar work thrown down by virtuosos Brendan Sedlak and Rich Raponi create an ever changing web of single line solos, shredded at insanely fast tempos, weaving in and out of each other…and it somehow, manages" (from [pinkeyemag.com] )
