In the September 2011 edition of Rolling Stone Magazine, Julian Slitworky had a few good words about Jane and The Magic Bananas: “A strange trio indeed! How to describe this terrific mumbo-combo? Let’s try this: a free-exotica-rock band. This post-virtuosity improv trio seems made to change the rules of interplay. Who’s soloing? Who’s in charge of the beat? Who’s leading? Where do they come from? From the land of Conan the Barbarian, I suppose… All in all, their set at DNA showed powerful and weird musical interactions, and a continuous three-dimensional stream of medieval consciousness which undergoes a permanent displacement from point 1 to point 3, from point 2 to point 1, etc. A magnificent example of individual spirits that connect with vector, Achilles vs. Hector, qualities. It was a sharp Frazetta Fantasy soundtrack. A must see, a must hear. Jane and The Magic Bananas is Michel F Côté on drums, Sam Shalabi on guitar, and Alexandre St-Onge on electric bass.”
