Wire article on Manchester improvisors

Article from the May issue of Wire magazine20160705_16052420160705_16053620160705_16055020160705_16064120160705_16065420160705_160659


Space Food 14th January

Looking forward to this my first gig of the year.


“Space Food is a new group in which three fine Manchester improvisers take on the format of the traditional organ trio; Adam Fairhall on organ, Johnny Hunter on drums and Dave Birchall on guitar. The organ trio is still a rarity in free improvisation, despite the rich timbral possibilties of the instrumentation. Space Food exploit the sonic potential to the full, from wriggly, scratchy lines to room-filling, vibrating, sustained sounds. Sometimes the tradition of organ combos will put in an appearance, and a funky groove will form, before being brutally demolished.”

It will happen at The Noise Upstairs, Fuel, Withington, Manchester from 8:30pm
