"The music sometimes recalls the magisterial terror of Last Exit, at other times the haunted, structured expanses of Naked City's longform compositions. Whichever way they turn though, Offonoff are a group in touch with their inner ur."
Slap and Tickle
"Slap and Tickle was recorded at the Kongsberg Jazzfestival in Norway (so maybe they are playing jazz) in 2007: a heavy half hour followed by 15 minutes of noise funk that gets dangerously close to no wave. But as much as they might open the throttle, they never lose control and never fall into aimless pounding. The band is tastefully fluid in its workings, sometimes allowing itself to become jagged guitar with rhythm section, other times shooting and ricocheting more independently. It’s a riotous ride."

Otomo Yoshihide & Paal Nilssen-Love
""[Nilssen-Love and Yoshihide] take turns playing, back and forth, individually and in union, finding unexpected synergies in an amazing interpretative game of cat n’ dog, in the end circling each other repeatedly until they’ve torn the listening space to shreds. It’s not for the weak-hearted." - TJ Norris / Toneshift credits releases June 15, 2018 Otomo Yoshihide: electric guitar Paal Nilssen-Love: drums and percussion "
Otomo Yoshihide / Paal Nilssen-Love / Lasse Marhaug
""There are long passages of what I’ve described as beautiful noise – especially the weird psychedelic passage at the beginning of the flipside which sounds like manic early Can. It becomes more interesting the more you listen to it. Structurally, the two Pica albums are alike, seeking direction at the beginning, and increasing loudness and power at the end." -Free Jazz Blog"
27 Years Later
"Drummer and percussionist Paal Nilssen-Love performed this incredibly diverse solo set at the Forum, Norway during the 2002 Molde International Jazz Festival. The CD was originally released in a limited edition of 150 on the Utech label in 2005. This reissue on Nilssen-Love's own PNL label puts this extraordinary set back in print for a wider audience.
