Reeds player Finn Peters curates three late night sessions at the Vortex – catch them after the evening concerts. The Independent has described Finn’s music as ‚Äúnothing like you have ever heard before‚ÄĚ so expect the same from these shows!
Prescott is the brainchild of former Stump bassist, Kev Hopper, joined by two formidable musicians: on keys Rhodri Marsden, Scritti Politti member and indie veteran who worked on Kev‚Äôs 2001 album ‚ÄúSaurus‚ÄĚ; on drums is Frank Byng [Snorkel, Crackle].
Funky beats and discordant riffs? Simple themes played a semitone apart? There are plenty of art-rock precedents; Palais Schaumberg, Can, Soft Machine and The Residents to name but a few. Prescott serve up their own, discrete take on the genre with their first recording, ‘One Did’ on Slowfoot Records.
“Prescott make music that is hilarious as it is infuriating.” The Wire
“Best band in the world…ever!” John Prescott
Finn Peters is one of the leading and most exciting flute and sax players in the UK today. A musician born and bred, his explorative nature has lead him to work with such pioneers as Frederick Rzewski, Bill Frisell, DJ Spinna, Sam Rivers and Sa-Ra creative partners, to name a few. This same thirst for discovery has taken him around the world and has led him to set up his own imprint, Mantella Records, releasing 7 albums plus numerous 12″s, EPs and remixes.
