- othin spake: live in archiduc
(2005, cdr, bel, rat records rat 'demo' 003)
Othin Spake plays free improvised music: Teun Verbruggen on drums, Mauro Pawlowski on guitar and Jozef Dumoulin on Fender Rhodes.
If you're not familiar with the Belgian music scene, these names might not mean much to you, so let me try to explain: Teun Verbruggen plays with Jef Neve Trio and Flat Earth Society; Mauro Pawlowski played with The Evil Superstars and is now playing with dEUS; and Jozef Dumoulin is part of Octurn and of Mâäk's Spirit and has performed with Aka Moon.
The story goes that these three musicians agreed for a one-time afternoon jam at the 'Archiduc' jazz club in Brussels. The result was a powerful, energetic show that lead to gigs at Jazz Middelheim, at De Petrol (Antwerp), De Werf (Brugge), De Vooruit (Gent),...
"Live At Archiduc" will show you why what the fuzz is all about.
100% improvised music.
You can't call it jazz, and you can't label it as rock either.
This is pure energy.
The band recently released a vinyl album on Sub Rosa. The other albums are out on Rat Records.
