Consumer Guide Album. Material: Memory Serves Although his angular, slightly hyped-up groove on the instrument is distinctly his own, Bill Laswell is a typical bass player in the most important way: what he expresses depends on who he works with. Beyond drummer Fred Maher and synth threat Michael Beinhorn, his collaborators here include Fred Frith, Sonny Sharrock, and Henry Threadgill augmented by lesser avant-jazzmen.

After Memory Serves, Maher would leave to join Lou Reed, and Laswell evolved into the George Clinton of world music. But for this one album at least, Material had the power.
