DUO SHOW

The Lexington, 96-98 Pentonville Rd, Angel, N1 9JB
7.30pm | £12 |

CHRIS CORSANO and BILL ORCUTT have spent the last five years flaying eardrums and blowing minds worldwide with a wildly polyrhythmic, high-register wail that splits the difference between rock, noise and jazz. As a co-founder of free-punk demolition crew Harry Pussy, Orcutt inspired entire genres of noise rock, and a decade after Harry Pussy's demise, re-emerged as a solo performer, creating a singular guitar lexicon suited for both discursive improvisation and cracked reinvention of the American songbook. Chris Corsano is the rim-batterer of choice for some of the heaviest contemporary purveyors of both jazz (Evan Parker, Paul Flaherty, Joe McPhee) and rock (Björk, Sir Richard Bishop, Jim O'Rourke), and is a formidable solo performer in his own right. When playing as a duo their avant drum-and-guitar improvisations provide the illusion of chaos. The longer you listen however to the onslaught of drum rolls and pock-marked notes, the more the communication (and, what's more, control) become abundantly clear. Their explosive mayhem has been documented on Orcutt's Palilalia label over the course of several live releases, most recently on the double LP "Live at Various/Various Live". Their first ever studio recording is scheduled for release later this year.
