An all-improvised transnational collaboration between: Mike Ladd (vocals & synthi), Carol Robinson (clarinets & voice), Dave Randall (guitar) and Dirk Rothbrust (drums & percussion).

Mike is known for fucked-up musical musings and lyrics and has released many a cut on Big Dada records. He brings his voice and synthi to the mix. Carol comes from the contemporary and experimental worlds. She plays all sorts of clarinets and sometimes talks on mic. Dave plays with a whole bunch of people including Faithless and has released records as Slovo and Randall. He brings electric guitar and his guitar FX to the mix. Dirk is a drummer and general heavy new music guy from Köln. He brings lots of surprising things on which to bang.

It’s a question of connection, of combining multiple sound worlds, of going into totally unexpected places…
