Crushing Death & Grief sing with joy
at the prospect of two new recordings on the exceleent Bo' Weavil Recordings:
C JOYNES + ALAN WILKINSON + PADANG FOOD TIGERS
Wed 7th Dec at The Portland Arms, Cambridge
Doors 8pm, £5 on the door
The well-travelled Master Musician of Histon, C Joynes, has been the most enthralling and consistently excellent creator of leftfield music in the Cambridge area for a number of years. His considered and very English take on that whole post-Fahey Tacoma guitar thing is difficult to pin down without sounding trite or contrived. Highly influenced by his frequent trips to the further corners of the globe his combination of technique with a lack of reverance for the self same allows Joynes to eke out a unique facet of authentic folk music, without all of the bullshit trappings of “authenticity”. As we shall be toasting its recent release, it seems likely that he will play selections from his latest offering for the esteemed Bo’ Weavil Recordings, “Congo”.
A fellow Bo’ Weavil Recordings artist, Alan Wilkinson is one of England’s fieriest improvising saxophonists. First coming to notice through Leeds’ Termite Club, which he was a founding member of, Wilkinson has been a mainstay of London’s free improv scene from the ’90s onwards. As well as working with many of the great modern improvisers - Derek Bailey, Peter Brötzmann, Sunny Murray, Eddie Prévost - he is equally at home with some serious names outside of jazz, such as Thurston Moore, Lee Ranaldo, Spring Heel Jack and Talibam! Wilkinson will be playing by himself, in support of his new solo CD “Practice”.
PADANG FOOD TIGERS
Highly nuanced ambient hissing, elegant sparse banjo, field recordings and mournful open guitar from two of Rameses III. Recordings out on Under The Spire and Blackest Rainbow.
