Fell Clutch

A ‘Jam Band’ that casts its net wide but keeps a sharp focus. “What King Crimson did for rock and Voivod did for heavy metal, [Fell Clutch] might one day do for improvised music”. An amazing and unlikely downtown all-star quartet, with Tony Buck’s drums and Stomu Takeishi’s electric fretless effected bass providing searing rhythms over which David Tronzo’s guitar and Ned Rothenberg’s circular-breathed reeds bubble, neither aimless or indulgent but with a stunning degree of precise interaction.
