Article from the May issue of Wire magazine
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
