The Peter Aaron/Brian Chase Duo appeared in 2013 with a bang. Literally. The two had already admired each other’s previous work—Chase (drums) with famed art punk trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Aaron (guitar) with blues punk legends the Chrome Cranks—when they met as players in a performance by Oneida percussionist Kid Millions’ project Man Forever. Their next encounter came a few months later, when they were among six participants in a collective improvisation at cutting-edge Brooklyn venue Secret Project Robot. As the set finished with a spontaneous, extended duet between Aaron and Chase, it became immediately clear the pair shared a rare, uncanny telepathy that simply had to continue.

Purges was recorded in the winter of 2014 in the space of a former church in Hudson, NY. Unusual to today's recording practice, the session was all analog and the music went 'straight to tape.' An emphasis was on capturing the energy of the duo's "purges:" intense chaotic and cathartic episodes that exercise a feeling of full release. These are the Purges 1-5. The other tracks were inspired in part by Lou Reed's album Metal Machine Music in its reduction and glorification of the fundamental sonic elements of music as source material for composition and expression of the physicality of sound.
