Two day residency featuring three of the quartet who blew the house down on their last visit - subsequently released as 'Mental Shake' on OTOROKU. Brötzmann is a seminal figure in Euro-improv, whose forthright playing contrasts with the shimmering vibraphone of Adasiewicz and Noble’s probing, driving percussion patterns. Brötz's duo with the hard-hitting vibes player Jason Adasiewicz which began at the 2011 Vision festival in NYC, and Noble has been a regular collaborator in recent years, with their interplay being brilliantly documented in last year's I Am Here Where Are You. Definitely one not to be missed!
