from Vancouver BC
Two drummers! Two guitarists! The Wire (London) calls California-born, Amsterdam-based Michael Vatcher a drummer who “can swing like mad, insert homemade instruments with precision and delicacy, and thrash the hell out of everything.” The addition of the creative and adventurous Australian drummer/percussionist Tony Buck into this group should provide enough rhythmic interest to satisfy the most groove-thirsty soul. Buck’s Corkestra colleague Andy Moor has an unusual guitar style, which ranges from melodic solos to atmospheric soundscapes and wild outbursts of radical sound. Vancouver’s Ron Samworth is an equally skilled guitarist with deep melodic roots and a wide textural vocabulary. Thanks to Nederlands Fonds voor de Podiumkunsten.
