A much welcome and long-overdue return to Cambridge for the unique and unmissable pairing of Mick Flower and Chris Corsano.
Formed in 2005, this duo melds the propane-lit, overdriven drone-ragas of MICHAEL FLOWER’s electrified shahi baaja and the truly extraordinary free drumming of CHRIS CORSANO. In the years since, they have toured and recorded together when their other commitments allow, delivering an ecstatic onslaught of free sound that shifts seamlessly between tumultuous intensity and blissed-out serenity. With a combined pedegree taking in the likes of the Vibracathedral Orchestra, MV & EE, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Rangda, Bjork, Bill Orcutt, Joe McPhee, Paul Flaherty and an army of other outfits, the pair are an essential conduit between the parallel worlds of psychedelic noise-rock and contemporary free jazz.
“There are few sounds so unique in improvised music today, and the duo's perfection of this kind of head-on freedom is rarely matched in any circle” – Brainwashed
“They evoke Rudolph Grey's far-out travels with Rashied Ali, Keiji Haino's bursting solos in Fushitsusha, maybe even what Jimi Hendrix and Mitch Mitchell are playing in the after-life." – Pitchfork
