Reviews

Matt Schulz, The Squid’s Ear

A super group of English improv — Evan Parker, Eddie Prévost, Keith Rowe, and Barry Guy — captured in 1984 creating a formidable and bleak landscape. A fluttering, smeared intro gives way to a bird attack, as if the creatures appeared first as a drifting feather or two, then a pair of the animals, and finally a murder of ferocious, pecking and swooping crows. Prevost's drums are tuned high and make sharp cuts through the hovering malice with quick rolls and tinkling cymbals.
