The trio of SCOTT FIELDS (electric guitar), PEGGY LEE (cello) and DYLAN VAN DER SCHYFF (drums) form to bring us a hazy, complex mood music which takes Jazz as it's leaping off point. Busy, cluttered improvisations which haze the air in what I'd describe as Black Noise - dark, low and mad as the Taliban's bid for World Domination. The mix keeps all sounds at roughly the same level, making for a more textural broth of almost primordial proportions. Falling somewhere between PAINKILLER and a softer more Surreal expressionism, this is an edgy music which describes the illogical etherworld of dreams. Feeding off one another they go from smokey club atmospheres to cartoon-crazy ant colonies of brutal, impenetrable noise to minimal delicate soundscapes.

When they're not assaulting our senses with a massed attack of frantic playing, their sound can be quite beautiful, charming and subtle - describing wonderous feelings and places. They touch upon a more classical music, and occasionally snatch a ghost tune from out of the air.

And when they choose to, the create a maelstrom of convoluted imagery, twisting one instrument into the other, entwining in aggitated anarchy.

But it's probably when they hit the middle ground that the sound is most interesting - having both a brightly painted sound etched in the air and a much more angry core. And it's here they also seem so much more together and formed, their improvisations becoming so much more formed and instinctive.
