Killing Time was the only release by Cambridge based band Massacre, before they disbanded for nearly 20 years. It is a sweet sounding mix of avant-rock and jazz that has been reissued by Spittle onto a three-sided 2LP. Killing Time was part live recorded in Paris so get you some real as-it-happened energy in you. It is available on Vinyl Double LP.
Rusconi are a young and adventurous jazz band; who could be a better collaborative partner than old and adventurous jazz man Fred Frith? The former Henry Cow man slots his jagged guitar right into the Rusconi sound. Live In Europe presents extracts from 2 live shows on 180g vinyl. Released on Qilin Records.
So if you recognise the two names up above already, then you probably don’t need me to tell you whether this will be worth your time or not. Frith and Butcher have been intensely exploring the outer limits of improvised sound for decades: Butcher in particular is renowned for doing things that most saxophonists would swear are impossible. The Natural Order is the product of a single session, so it represents a very direct expression of what these two actual legends can do together.
