lll人 is Paul Abbott (drums), Seymour Wright (saxophone) and Daichi Yoshikawa (electronics) – “A fiercely textural, saw toothed assault… full of shrill drilling feedback and sax squeak… waves of noise punctuated with sudden bursts of silence” – SoundsXP / “Convulsing but controlled, reigned and railed, concentrated not opposing between the three. Sound bending to include others. to be met and slightly connected. Semi-soothed in trilling galloping galactic space” – KiO
Dominic Lash’s first ever improv gig was a trio with Alex Ward and Pat Thomas; since then he and Alex have encountered each other in bands such as Predicate, Gannets, Barkingside and many more besides. For their duo performances Alex plays clarinet and Dominic plays double bass and they both write compositions which are sometimes calm and quiet and sometimes knotty and noisy, plus they make a bunch of stuff up.
Clive Henry and Seth Cooke – the co-founders of Bang the Bore – have played together in various groups, including Hunting Lodge, Masterly! & Farewell and the A Band; while collaborative omnipresence Kevin Sanders maintains a frightening release rate as Petals through his Hairdryer Excommunication label. In this trio they might play metal percussion, electronics and guitar, or something else altogether.
