Club Integral presents Adios Batista!
Friday 16 February Doors 7.30pm – Music 8pm | £7/£5 cons
With sets from 4th Page, Ross Lambert, and Kate Thompson.
Fourth Page are a band, consisting of Charlie Beresford (voice), Peter Marsh (bass & electronics), and Carolyn Hume (piano), and Paul May (drums/percussion). They play acoustic music which is improvised but doesn’t sound like it. They have been compared to everyone from Robert Wyatt to Schubert to John Martyn. They have released three albums on Leo Records and Forwind, and plan to release a new one very soon.
Northern Irish (and London-based) guitarist and ‘magnetic and vibrating sources’ player Ross Lambert, has in his own words, the following fundamental and simultaneous approaches to live performance: to play as though it was both the first time and also the last; and to able to differentiate between what is good and worth conserving and what is not. Ross has been involved in, initiated and been a connector between a very wide variety of improvisatory music since his first
exposure and (immediate) commitment to it, in Sheffield via Derek Bailey during the
mid-1980s. Although under-recorded (he claims ‘by choice’), Ross has worked with a
huge number of musicians from around the world, including Tetuzi Akiyama, Ami
Yoshida, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Paul Hession, Rhodri Davies, John Butcher and Evan
Parker, as well as his close friends Eddie Prevost, Seymour Wright, and Sebastian
recently left Birmingham band Kate Goes – “They veer from chaotic pop to anarchic folk, whilst squeaking dog toys, bashing bongos and singing about yeast infections
” – and is striking out on her own with a solo project.
