'The shape this ship is in suggests that life-jackets might be advisable.........a recording of astonishing originality.' - Evan Parker

Capri-Batterie

A trio comprised of Kordian Tetkov on drums, Tim Sayer on trumpet and electronics and Matthew Lord on Bass and Saxophone. With an unrestricted approach to improvisation that embraces the philosophy of ‘freedom’, as an affront to oppression in all its modern day manifestations, this is music making unafraid of ideology and charged with abstraction. The intensity levels achieved by Capri-Batterie are uncharacteristic for a small ensemble and the belligerent and anarchic fervour with which they coalesce the aesthetics of industrial rock, free jazz and noise art render their performances a highly energetic and intense undertaking.

Stewart Lee

Highly regarded writer, stand-up comedian and director. Stewart Lee has been described as "the comedian's comedian, and for good reason" by The Times, whilst he has described himself as "fat" and his performance as "positively Neanderthal, suggesting a jungle-dwelling hermit, struggling to coax notes out of a clarinet that has fallen from a passing aircraft". Despite this Stewart has been involved in numerous interesting musical projects and maintains a strong association with the avant-garde and improvised scene.
