Bill Laswell: Mad Maxim
Edwin Pouncey, New Musical Express, 16 May 1992
Laughing in the face of musical categories, Manhattan's AXIOM label smashes through Techno stomp, space bass boogie, classical gas, Islamic rap'n'thrash, ferocious free-form jazz and — hey! — radical rock. EDWIN POUNCEY discovers that "Eclectic" is the unwieldy middle name of label boss and Material man BILL LASWELL, and tracks down dynamic stalwarts SONNY SHARROCK and RONALD SHANNON JACKSON.
