      Mick Beck / Chris Corsano
      + Black Serama vs. Ward Fernadez / Collins Duo.
      Tues 1st July. 8pm.
      Over the Top,
      Sheffield, S11 9AU.
      £6

      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
      http://www.wegottickets.com/event/32318

      Beck's own private Sheffield venue 'Over the Top' holds just 40
      people, making this concert an even more intense yet intimate experience.
