Part of the Recording Studio.
Saturday 21 November, 12 - 7pm
John Coxon (of Spring Heel Jack and Spiritualized), Pat Thomas (jazz keyboardist who’s worked with Tony Oxley, Thurston Moore, Lol Coxhill), Alexis Taylor (singer and songwriter with Hot Chip) and Charles Hayward (drummer with This Heat) have begun to improvise together as About, and have just completed an album, recorded in one two-hour session on the first occasion they played together . They are a veritable free-jazz post-punk pop supergroup, and have played only two shows to date: supporting Gang Gang Dance at Dingwalls and at Ornette Coleman’s Meltdown festival, which makes this session particularly relevant. We are very happy to have them in the studio today.
