Album Review

Nick Didkovsky's group Doctor Nerve has a knack for changing skin from one album to the next. After the unanimous critical success of Skin in 1996, Cuneiform Records released Every Screaming Ear the next year. At first, the album appears as a mixed bag of goods: live Doctor Nerve tracks including first-days classics and a cover of Captain Beefheart's "When It Blows Its Stacks," a few "Nervewares" (compositions generated by software written by Didkovsky), and experiments with NewEar, the Meridian Arts Ensemble, and the Isso Yukihiro Group.
