Collaborative quartet formed in 2012 featuring Chris Williams (alto sax), Moss Freed (guitar), Ruth Goller (electric bass) and Finlay Panter (drums). Eponymous debut album released on Manchester’s Efpi record label in early 2014.
Follow up “Let Go” (Efpi) released October 2015.
"Some of the music is the kind of full on “skronk” one might expect from the members' pedigrees but there's also a high degree of subtlety and sophistication alongside the sonic bluster. "
"â€śLet Goâ€ť builds upon the success of the band's first record and again highlights the contrasting writing styles of the four members while still retaining a unified and distinctive group sound."
