Mick Beck / Chris Corsano LIVE DEBUT Sheffield July 1st
- Mick Beck / Chris Corsano
+ Black Serama vs. Ward Fernadez / Collins Duo.
Tues 1st July. 8pm.
Over the Top,
Sheffield, S11 9AU.
After appearing separately on the same recent Singing Knives bill both
of these unique professionals were impressed by each other's work and
agreed to this heads off which is set to be historic.
Barely needing any introductions... If you haven't yet had the
privilege of encountering Mick Beck's technically blinding, highly
colourful yet blazing anarchy on tenor, rest assured he gives that
distinct but rare impression he could have been born wearing it.. -
worked with Derek Bailey, Simon Fell, Phil Marks and hundreds more.
Chris Corsano (Flaherty, Thurston Moore, Joe McPhee Sunburned etc.
etc.), possibly the most energetic free-percussionist in the West, is
also becoming a bit of a household name currently as Bjork's chosen
drummer, constantly excelling himself live with a growing number of
collaborators, burning up the kit with hair-raising polyrhythms and
highly original experimentation. Promised to be a mesmeric and spine
tingling, highly memorable show.
A couple of the obligatory Wire Quotes:
'Beck plays tenor with conviction that can border on lawlessness.'
'Corsano is arguably the most riotously energetic and creative drummer
in contemporary free jazz.'
Black Serama vs. Ward Fernadez / Collins Duo.
Backing up with another first-time ever collaboration - Sheffield's
Black Serama (eccentric sibling runaways Jonny & Bel Drury in Acid /
Tolkienesque guitar-vox journeying) battle for sensible interpretation
of nether-worlds (and Nether Edge) with long established improv
artisans Charlie Collins (free percussion) and Ward-Fernandez
(electric violin and theremin). Wow..!
NOTE: Very limited tickets
Beck's own private Sheffield venue 'Over the Top' holds just 40
people, making this concert an even more intense yet intimate experience.
BRING YOUR OWN REFRESHMENTS.
