Herbert Eckardt is name of the monstrous freak of a collaboration between Danish saxophonist Louise D.E. Jensen and Italian drummer/percussionist Luca Marini (the group takes its name from both musicians’ little known middle names). Nonsense songs, super serious free improvisation, punk and other musical detritus are thrown together to create gaudy and fun messes in their performances. They have recently recorded their first album as a duo, tentatively titled “Frankenstein, I Love You,” due to be released in late 2010. As a special guest, they brought along Louise’s husband, bassist Tom Blancarte for their performance at MEGAPOLIS 2010.
