Peter Brotzmann/John Edwards/Steve Noble
...The Worse The Better
OTO Roku No Cat
Debut vinyl outing from the greatest live music venue in the UK, London’s Cafe Oto: ...The Worse The Better documents a scalding trio set from saxophone titan Peter Brotzmann, bassist John Edwards and drummer Steve Noble recorded in January 2010 during Brotzmann’s first residency. The trio blur into an unstoppable juggernaut right from the start, with Brotzmann’s fiery tone and fleet melodic ability more than matched by Edwards non-stop rolling out of ideas. Even Noble sounds inspired, raining down assaultive rhythms w/uncommon force. A striking label debut, beautifully presented on 180g vinyl with two-colour silkscreen sleeves and card inner. Recommended.
