Borbetomagus: The Eastcote Studios Session

Read "The Eastcote Studios Session" reviewed by John Eyles

Borbetomagus--Donald Miller on electric guitar, Don Dietrich and Jim Sauter on (tenor) saxophones--have been together since the late 70's. They soon established their own distinctive sound and working methods that suited the unconventional instrumentation and gave the trio a strong identity.

Mats Gustafsson: Needs!

Read "Needs!" reviewed by John Eyles

For anyone who has recently seen Mats Gustafsson live in concert, either with The Thing or in his own right, Needs! is likely be a surprise. In addition to his baritone and slide saxophones, here Gustafsson employs live electronics and “bug treatments." Photographs of him in action indicate that these involve miking the bell of his ...
