18-22 Ashwin Street, London, E8 3DL, United Kingdom
Massively heavy weekend residency with two of the world's foremost improvisers. Neither need much introduction. Mats Gustafsson is one of the most distinctive saxophonists of his generation - a player of impossible physical power and constant invention as a soloist, collaborator and group player in The Thing, Fire!, Brötzmann's Chicago Tentet and countless other configurations. Here he's joined by his Discaholics Anonymous cohort Thurston Moore. An inventive and instantly recognisable guitarist both in his solo work and as a member of Sonic Youth, Thurston has also been a long running participant in and champion of much of the music that we hold dear. It's a pleasure to have him back here with Mats for what promises to be two fantastic days of music.
