I still remind myself the energy blast concert of Steve Buchanan at the tiny and atmospheric festival in a small town of Inowłódz, Poland in 1998, what a night it was!!!
Here all ends meet up together and I am still listening to Steve and his companions on this Gentlejunk netlabel release.
A nicely put collective improvisation keeping both sonorous and a lil' bit melodic stance with a nice scenario to it.
Heike Fiedler makes it more narrative piece by spoken word synchwith the rest of the band. What seems most particularly well-assembled here is the experience of the musicians which goes way beyond anything.
Really enjoyable piece, need some more of that drug.
