Abduction Records presents the first vinyl LP release of Hound Dog Taylor's Hand. The trio consists of Jeffery Taylor (Climax Golden Twins/AFCGT/Spider Trio) on electric guitar, Mark Ostrowski (Monktail/Wally Shoup Quartet) on drums and John Seman (Monktail/Ask The Ages) on contrabass. The music is a heavy dose of jazz, blues, and improvisation. Sharp and destructive yet cerebral and clever, these tracks finally expose one of Seattle's best-kept secret treasures to the world as the only way you could have heard them before would have been at one of their extremely rare live shows in the Puget Sound area or from their locally produced cassette from a few years back. The second track on side one titled "Beatrice" features Climax Golden Twins and Beatrice Harrison. Edition of 500.

"Hound Dog Taylor's Hand bring a highbrow brutalism and cranky chaos to jazz rock. [They] sound like Hound Dog Taylor's actual hand looks: scary and slightly off - Fans of Sonny Sharrock and Billy Cobham's Spectrum, take note." -- Dave Segal, The Stranger.

"A new trio from Seattle, led by the guitar work of Jeffery Taylor of Climax Golden Twins. The material is blues based instrumental improvisation over a jazzoid rhythm section. Something like a cross between Taste and Rangda, I guess. With all traces of Sri Chinmoy wiped clean." -- Byron Coley, Wire Magazine.
