Volcanic Tongue... reviews the A Band

"Edition of 50 numbered copies 3” CD-R documenting a rare trio performance from long-term UK free/freak ensemble The A Band, here represented by Simon Murphy, Karl M V Waugh and Alasdair Willis. Recorded live at The Iron Duke in November 2010, there’s a great cracked free jazz feel to much of this, with someone slow-dialling cold war electronics beneath an eerie melodic/reeds back and forth that could almost be session players from The TV Personalities’ Mummy You’re Not Watching Me channelling the ghost of Anima Sound during downtime or a more punk-primitive This Heat pitching for a gig with The Shadow Ring. But where’s Walden?" (Volcanic Tongue)
