This rap-rock project is no Limp Bizkit: On Anarchist Republic of Bzzz, DNA guitarist Arto Lindsay joins up with fellow axman Marc Ribot and returns to his primitivist no-wave roots after two decades of learning to play his instrument. The duo's effects-pedal collages back up Mike Ladd and Sensational, rappers more oblique than suggested by the record's slipcase -- a psychedelic rendering of Osama bin Laden. "Interlude" mimics either a puffing tailpipe or a pit bull, while "Fascist" cuts up a car's ignition rev into industrial noise; the lyrics feature Beefheartian chants ("Black Hawk take me out!"). You have to peek to ascertain which tracks are remixes.
