There's a big ole bunch on releases on the Qbico label this week which is always an exciting prospect (depending on your point of opinion I guess). This new stack of releases (5 in total) centres around the UK music scene and predominantly the Leeds music scene. Which is nice for me cos I'm from Leeds and we're based in Leeds. I almost feel like they're about me and everyone I know. You may have thought Leeds was all about the Kaiser Chiefs, Forward Russia and the Sisters of Mercy but we have a burgeoning experimental scene here. Churinga Canaries is a supergroup of sorts featuring Phil Todd (Ashtray Navigations) Alex Neilson (worked with everyone and their dog), Tirath Singh Nirmala (who is John Clyde Evans who has played Hood amongst other folks) and Phil Legard (who plays in the Neon Death Slittes amongst others). Anyhoo this limited self-titled album is somewhat of a noisy affair. A huge sprawling free flowing jam which sounds like the band are falling over themsleves. At times it's thoroughly coherent and I can hear occasional echoes of Michael Karoli's (Can) more jammy moments in the guitars. Otherwise it just sounds like what it is and that's a huge collapsing psych jazz rock jam of instruments which oozes power and will leave you wanting a pint of some fine local mead (which is what I want right now). I've quite possibly over indulged on the use of parenthesis in this review but I do enjoy a good pair of informative brackets.
