"I'm Not A Gun are John Tejada and Takeshi Nishimoto. Techno's best kept secret, John Tejada (Playhouse, Palette, 7th City etc.) has decided to take a break from his usual (strictly electronic) productions. Together with his friend Takeshi Nishimoto he sits back on the veranda of postrock-instrumentals and relaxes. Tejada on drums, guitar and electronics, Nishimoto on guitar and bass dream away their day -- and make ours. With airy gestures and a sunny state of mind, they jam themselves into textures which have learned their lesson from the best records of the Chicago school: jazzrock does not have to be a pretentious monster, but can sing a poem of the utopia of unhierachical communication. As soon as structure wins over the solo, dialogue over technical skills and the lightness of swing over the pathos of improvisation. With I'm Not A Gun, everything seems to be structure, dialogue and lightness. In a cheerful dizziness, these instrumentals seem to plan themselves, accepting no control from the outside world. Tejada and Nishimoto are just following that stream. Everything At Once is music of the inner ear, floating sessions full of trust in a higher sense of justice. Music which finally arrives at itself, unfolds, blossoms and stretches out its feelers. Here, work has got nothing to do with effort, and producing nothing with reason."
