Andrew Cheetham & David Birchall – 13 March 2013

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

“Drums & guitar riffing improv” The Wire

“Andrew Cheetham and David Birchall create a psychedelic maelstrom of sound that threatens to atomise your walls” Mojo

“The duo has a great artistic empathy going on between them that gives birth to some fantastically fucked up jams on here.” Was Ist Das

“While the pair may appear to be locked into a sort of bendy, elastic conflict to begin with, gradually they reveal themselves to be working in immaculate musical parallel. Dynamic change is always impending, the two embark brilliantly on gradual arcs both up and down: descending into crazed mumbles of dissonance and quivering drum roll, and rising again into squawks of broken guitar strums and the more assertive flourishes of snare and ride.”
