Text by Steve Holtje, Manager of ESP-Disk, keyboardist of Caterpillar Quartet :

"Everything stands somewhere on a continuum, like various shades along the color spectrum. Emergency Group’s Inspection of Cruelty is somewhere on a spectrum refracted through the '70s bands of jazz-rock fusion in general and (despite the lack of horns) Miles Davis’s keyboard-heavy bands in particular, yet coming five decades on from that initial blast of creative innovation, the original musical DNA has been mingled with other styles and developments. There’s perhaps a strain of dub reggae in Dave Mandl’s bass lines, though perhaps their beguiling repetition comes from another source via concurrent evolution. The keyboard parts of Robert Boston don’t specifically sound like anybody who played with Miles, though sort of an amalgam of all of them reduced to its essence and then recast as Hawkwind jams. Tony Williams’s drumming is clearly something Andreas Brade has been influenced by (but then, what drummer hasn’t been influenced by Tony?), and the band’s name obviously nods at Williams’s greatest album as a leader—yet the specifics of how Brade drums is harder and rockier than Williams’s light lines of quicksilver pulse. And Jonathan Byerley’s guitar: the wild card in this comparison, sort of a guitarist acting as one of Miles’s keyboardists (say, Chick Corea) but on guitar and with crunchier riffs and dirtier tones than even Pete Cosey. Add in the multiplicity of related musics that have come since; it’s an ever-flowing river, and even if you stand in that river where Miles and McLaughlin et al. stood, it’s fifty years later and the water’s different, having picked up particles running off from all the weather that’s come since. The result is somewhat like drone in overall mood but jazz-rock in its moment-to-moment kaleidoscopic unfolding, redolent with ancestry but not mere imitation. At moments the result suggests Laraaji as four people playing different instruments in a meditative communion that nonetheless is burlier than “meditative” would suggest if you think of New Age music in connection with meditation when instead you could be pondering the mysteries of universes moving through space with massive power yet lean agility. In the vernacular of the '70s, it’s heavy, man."
