Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog
A free/punk/funk/experimental collective, featuring Marc Ribot (John Zorn, Tom Waits, etc etc), plus two of the best young players on the new york/california underground improv/experimental rock scene, Shahzad Ismaily - bass/electronics (Ben Frost, Carla Kihlstedt, Sam Amidon) and Ches Smith - drums (Xiu Xiu, Secret Chiefs 3, Trevor Dunn, Carla Bozulich).

Ceramic Dog's sophomore album, Your Turn, has landed on several 'Best of 2013' lists including PopMatters, Alarm Magazine, and Something Else. PopMatters writes: "The scary thing about Marc Ribot and his new(ish) band is that all of these styles and quirks are pulled off so convincingly... with their first album well behind them, they are even fiercer than before... 8 out of 10 stars." All Music calls the album "an absolute scorcher... this band can do nearly anything," and Robert Christgau says "Ribot's new hard-rock album with Ceramic Dog ranks amongst his most daring," in his review on NPR's All Things Considered which can be heard here.

"Marc Ribot's new power trio, filled out by the remarkable versatile rhythm team of bassist Shahzad Ismaily and drummer Ches Smith, is his rawest band in ages."
(TimeOut NY)

"Marc Ribot's Ceramic Dog, whose style is experimental...though much more pleasing on the ears, was one of the best surprises of the festival."

3 Leafs is a music collective based largely in spontaneous composition. We have been playing around the bay area and west coast since 2005 and have 8 releases available: Space Rock Tulip (lp), Eat the Earth (cdr), Titular Lines (cdr), Canal Smarts(lp), SPAA(cdr), En Super Forme(cdr), Live at Cafe du Nord(cassette) and Technical Death Metal Parking Lot(cassette). Look for a new 10" vinyl ep and a new full length vinyl release in winter/spring 2013.

We've been a band since 1972. Through our camaraderie and shared love of adventure, we have maintained the band for 41 years.
