In the Fishtank 10 is a 2003 EP by Motorpsycho and Jaga Jazzist Horns, recorded in 2002 during their European tour and released via the Konkurrent label in 2003. Motorpsycho did a handful gigs together with the horn section of Jaga Jazzist and used to opportunity to record their addition to the Fishtank series. The style differs heavily from both Motorpsycho and Jaga Jazzist records, consisting of mainly jazz fusion.

In the Fishtank is an ongoing project of Konkurrent, an independent music distributor in the Netherlands. In this project, Konkurrent invites one or two bands to record and gives them two days studio time. The first four albums were recorded by individual bands, but eight of the last ten releases were the result of two bands (three in one case) teaming up to record. The Ex is so far the only band to appear on more than one album in the series. In the Fishtank 1 – Nomeansno. In the Fishtank 2 – Guv'ner.

I think the name "Jaga Jazzist Horns" would to be at the first place because their influence is more significant here. Jazz music outweights rock, especially in instrumental songs. All musicians here are technically perfect of course and emphasizing any member of this project would be useless. Connection between both sides, Motorpsycho and Jaga Jazzist is very strong. Fruit of their endeavour takes greatly compact effect. I like this album because I like jazz, I like heavy rock sound like Motorpsycho and I like fusion sometimes.

Bombay Brassière, 05:57. Pills, Powders and Passion Plays, 07:05. Theme De Yoyo, 07:28. Kansas Dust In the Wind. Radio Monte Carlo Gold Collection. The Weeknd Can't Feel My Face.

They collaborated and created a fantastic jazzy album in just 2 days. In the Fishtank is, in theory, a terrible idea. Let’s take two or more low-profile, usually post rock related artists, and put them together in a studio. But to only give them two days and then put out whatever they record, no matter how much it sucks" That is the tragic flaw of the Fishtank series.

The Jaga Jazzist horns have tagged along on a few Motorpsycho tours and done session work on their records, but In the Fishtank is their first real two-way collaboration. On the Mingus-referencing "Doffen Ah Um", a typically knotty Jazzist instrumental rubs against Motorpsycho's rock drums and grungy rhythm guitar; the soft psych-folk song "Pills, Powders and Passion Play" gets an extended instrumental break, highlighted by Mathias Eick's muted trumpet. These horn players are so identified by their tight ensemble work that it's a revelation to hear them play.

As stated in the liner notes, IN THE FISHTANK “offers a space for expression and experimentation.” And true to that mission statement, this EP features long jazzy jams from the Motorpsycho crew, with help from the horn section of Jaga Jazzist. “Bombay Brassiere” shines and shimmer, the horns adding a certain brightness. “Pills, Powders and Passion Plays” is much more introspective, with “sensitive guy” lyrics. The rock-influenced “Theme de Yoyo” takes its lyrics much less seriously, and is humorous in an odd way (with moments of instrumental chaos). The final track, “Tristano,” wanders about on its own merry way, and you can either go with it or not. The important thing is that you’ve been invited.
