‘. . .toadstool’s music is a masterpiece of free-jazz, noise, call it what you want. Seeing these guys live and in action left such an impression; my eyes and ears were wide-open. Their live and recorded performances place your mind into some kind of nirvanic-euphoria; the audience at their shows didn’t know what hit them. It’s not everyday that you see free-jazz anymore.’

-william herd – lloyd label

. . .’free jazz with electric or organic drumming. calm to frantic sax playing that is as trained as it is feral. all with emotional overtones or undertones. toadstool is the only group that has played two sets in one evening for the ongoing series “Experiments in Noise” in Corvallis for good reason!’
