Rick Potts: Musical saw, Hinge-neck electric guitar, Steiner-Parker synthesizer, Dr. Sample, Fake screaming rat, electronic birdcaller, Kalimba, Saxxy, Nose flute and Crow call. Rick Frystak, Chris Guttmacher, Brian A. Rosser. SAWS is a cracked-groove-celestial-takeoff to the nether-regions of the Musical Saw. Bowed, struck, tweaked, dubbed and kissed, SAWS do their business with electronic processing, hinged-neck guitar, spaced melody bass, squalky synths and crackling snare and cymbal. SAWS mark their territory with a sound unlike any other progressive music waveforms. Multi-instrumentalist Rick Potts is an improvisor and instrument maker who has been on L.A.'s musical fringe for a quarter of a century. A founding member of the L.A. Free Music Society (L.A.F.M.S.), Potts recorded and performed in one of its premiere units, Le Forte Four. A home-made sound scientist (with custom hinge-neck guitars, musical saw, electronics and tray of toys) whose idiosyncratic methodology produces sounds which are unique, alarming and enigmatic yet oddly cordial."
