John Dikeman saxes

Jasper Stadhouders guitar, bass

Onno Govaert drums

Cactus Truck creates startlingly intense music, not merely in terms of volume or velocity but through complete

physical/psychological surrender. One can find hints of delta blues, early free jazz, Japanese noise, and no wave in the music.

Xavier Lopez - laptop
Onno Govaert drums

Their music is made out of noisy bitcrushed skylines, subversive feedbacks, distorted sax tornados and indefinable metallic sounds. The general chaos and disorder resulting from the collapsing above-mentioned languages creates the aesthetics of the music itself...

::: Could be punctuated by moments of peace ::: music is non-contractual ::: improvisations may vary in length and style :::
