Hans Peter Hiby Trio

Hans-Peter Hiby (saxophone), Michael Bardon (bass/electronics), Paul Hession (drums)

Hans Peter Hiby first encountered British drummer Paul Hession in the Winter of 1986 when they started playing together as a duo in Hiby’s home-town of Wuppertal. Having grown up and spending much of his childhood with Caspar Brötzmann, Hiby has deep roots within the Wuppertaler free jazz community.

Hiby/Hession has played throughout Germany as well as Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands and on occasions augmented the duo with bass players Marcio Mattos, Roberto Bellatalla, Peter Kowald and recently Dieter Manderscheid.

For this short UK tour, Leeds-based, Fusebox favourite, bass player Michael Bardon completes the trio. He has played throughout the UK and Europe including festivals in Sardinia, Germany, Italy and Poland and his dynamic playing is the perfect fit for this trio.

Bitch ‘n’ Monk


Heidi Heidelberg and Mauricio Velasierra are Bitch ‘n’ Monk.

“In the intriguing Anglo- Colombian duo Heidi plays guitar, sings and beatboxes and Mauricio plays assorted flutes. The two transform their sound into junkyard electronica through the ingenious use of looping pedals. You’ll spend a while pondering how to classify them. Prog folk? Operatic post-punk? Gothic reggae? But they know how to write melodies” The Guardian.
Their influences are said to range from Prokofiev to Wayne Shorter, layed down with West African Rhythms.

James Mainwaring (sax and effects), Matthew Bourne (Fender Rhodes), Michael Bardon (double bass), Joost Hendrickx (drums).

Saxophonist, composer, singer-songwriter and now label boss James Mainwaring is perhaps best known as a founder member of the Mercury Prize nominated Roller Trio or more recently as a collaborator with and touring member of fellow Mercury nominees Django, Django, who he met at the 2012 awards. Tipping Point is his new project and the second release on Lamplight Social Records, the label he founded to release the second Roller Trio album, Fracture, after becoming frustrated with the machinations of the music industry.

Tipping Point features James Mainwaring on saxophone and effects alongside British improvised music legend Matthew Bourne Fender Rhodes and two of the UK’s most individual instrumentalists; Michael Bardon double bass and Joost Hendrickx drums. Members of the band have previously collaborated on projects such as; Dave Kane’s Rabbit Project, the Fusebox Orchestra, Shatner’s Bassoon and Mainwaring/Bardon/Horne amongst many others. It was whilst studying at Leeds College of Music 2007 – 2010 when Mainwaring, Bardon and Hendrickx met and were tutored by Bourne, a pianist whose innovative approach to improvisation and teaching proved to be a great influence on them that the genesis for Tipping Point was born.
