'ouch evil slow hop' is the debut album of new collaboration between drum alchemist sebastian rochford [polar bear, acoustic ladyland etc..] and pamelia kurstin, the woman described by bob moog as "one of the most important innovators of the theremin living today." although aware of one another for a number of years, seb and pamelia first played together at the suggestion of brighton's loop festival, and subsequently recorded this album's material in a brighton studio, in a number of free improvised sessions then edited by seb. portishead's adrian utley added his unique mixing angle, and 'ouch evil slow hop' was born. an album that defies simplistic categorization, it veers between eerie soundscapes, locked celestial grooves and explosive workouts. sections have variously been compared to herbie hancock's 'sextant' era and soft machine locked in a fight to the death with aphex twin.

It's clear that when they're jamming together Sebastian Rochford and Pamelia Kurstin can do anything – and they don't care whether you think it's nice or not.»
