Raccoo-oo-oon was an experimental noise rock/psychedelic rock quartet from Iowa.

Their first release was a self-issued cassette entitled Is Night People, which was reissued by Swedish label Release the Bats, (see Allmusic).

Style[edit]

Their style of music has been described as "tribal-like percussions",[2] "raw and impetuous – characterised by seemingly-improvised saxophone freak-outs and crashing percussion with an emphasis on chaos".[3]
