- Primitive London by Basil Kirchin
8/10 Ant Staff review, 02 December 2010
Trunk issue two previously unreleased soundtracks of Kirchin's mid-sixties sleazy jazz. The first is from Primitive London which was apparently one of the first mondo style movies and featured "strippers, chicken factories and wife swapping parties", documenting the underbelly of the English capital. The general feeling I get is of scantily clad people hanging about drinking Martini's clutching cigarette holders... "I say Cuthburt, does one fancy a good old bonking". Way more interesting to my ears are the strange experimental darker sounds of track four. Rather annoyingly I don't have the cover for the disc and so track titles remain a mystery. Then we get the soundtrack for 'The Freelance' which is an obscure London gangland movie from 1971 starring Ian McShane. Essential listening for those of you that enjoy Kirchin's previous Trunk records; Particles, Quantum, Abstractions of The Industrial North etc. A much overlooked figure in British jazz.
