Biography

A truly original contemporary jazz outfit from the UK featuring Jan Kopinski on sax. Almost impossible to categorize they swing from virtuosic jazz to gritty funk with freedom and movement, veering into left-fleld territory and returning with snappy anthem-like tunes. Unpredictable and exciting, they carved a unique style in the UK and won praise from critics at home and abroad. Their eclectic fusion of style foreshadowed the move towards mixing influences in much of today’s modern music. With 8 albums and extensive touring in Europe, Poland and New York in the late 80’s and 90’s and a “Best British Band” at the British International Jazz Awards in ‘91 they are back after several years of individual projects.

Originally called Last Call, the band formed in Nottingham, UK. Their long term residency at the Hearty Good Fellow in the city helped to establish the band along with a live appearance on BBC Radio Nottingham. After catching the attention of, firstly the rock press (NME), they released their first album on Dug-Out Records - in 1980 – “Introduce Me to the Doctor”…Recognition in the Indie Charts and a distribution deal with Rough Trade Records led them to further recordings , “The City Can’t Have it Back”, “The Dizzy dance Record” (with famous dub producer Adrian Sherwood) “Speak” and a couple of singles. the drummer at that time was Tim Bullock and bassist Tim Nolan and brother Mick on Percussion.

    London? Jan is from Nottingham originally! I was in a band that supported him when he was in Last Call (1979 ish). Happy Days!
