New quartet comprised of long-term sparring partners on the fertile Manchester underground scene David Birchall (guitar), Andrew Cheetham (drums), and Otto Willberg (double bass), alongside London based saxophonist Colin Webster. The quartet came together for the first time in the loft space of the Islington Mill in Salford to record their debut album ‘Night Streets Of Madness’ which was released on Tombed Visions in September...
“Even in the realm of free improvisation, music rarely sounded this brutally physical. Each of these four virtuoso instrumentalists is given the space to produce some of their best individual improvisations and solos to date, but Night Streets Of Madness works best when they play as one single instinctive entity, somehow twisting punishing impulsiveness into densely textured long form (spontaneous) compositions.” – Tristan Bath, The Quietus
