Dead Neanderthals is a Dutch/UK based double sax & drums trio incorporating elements from jazz, grindcore, drone and noise culminating in a pummeling sound that has been described as Painkiller meets Brötzmann. This is the new wave of Dutch Heavy Jazz. Dead Neanderthals are launching their new album ‘Prime’. Heralded as their “ultimate statement” and “a wake-up call to anyone who thought free jazz was a dying art”, Prime is a single, unrelenting 40-minute piece, with no “solos” or soothing interludes. Dead Neanderthals will perform ‘Prime’ in its entirety at The Vortex.
Otto Kokke – Baritone Saxophone
