LAST FUSEBOX UNTIL SEPTEMBER…Terrific Fusebox double bill before our first series of gigs at the Fox and Newt takes a summer break…back in September. Both bands have recent CD releases and this gig is effectively the Leeds album launch for both bands…might even be a bit of a Battle of the Bands edge too as well! Bring plenty of spare cash and take the music home with you on CD.
- Trio VD
Chris Bussey – Drums Christophe de Bezenac – Alto Sax/ Electronics Chris Sharkey – Electric Guitar
“…A truly mesmerising band, go and see them as soon as you can.” JAZZWISE ”
…earth-shattering, taking a sledgehammer to preconceived limitations of jazz…” – TIME OUT”
…this band’s edgy humour, dark near-Satanic thrashing and disdainful virtuosity is both vivid and refreshing…bursting with barely contained passion…an explosive performance…expect further sightings of Marshall amps in jazz clubs near you.” – JAZZWISE ”
The terrific Leeds-based trioVD followed up with an equally ferocious display, this time a fast, tight and awesomely expert conjunction of spiky high-energy compositions, uninhibited sax and guitar improv and machine-gun drumming” John Fordham – London Jazz Festival Review, The Guardian
- Roller Trio
James Mainwaring electronics/tenor saxophone, Luke Wynter guitar Luke Reddin-Williams drums
Roller Trio mix epic rock-edged riffs, angular sax explorations, brooding beats and haunting dub-step style electronics all shot through with heady improvisation. Recent winners of the Peter Wittingham Award which should help bring them to wider attention and bolster their chances of developing their sound and presence on the live scene.
TO BE CONFIRMED…Currently waiting for confirmation of our September gig (Friday 7 September?) which should feature Home of the Brave, Shatners Bassoon and one other act and will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Jazz on 3. Watch this space!
