Linear Obsessional Recordings releases the second album by prosaically named improvising trio Browne/Thompson/Sanderson. Like the first album this was recorded in the sonically vivid surroundings of a Girl Guides's Hut in Aylesbury Browne's home town.
Where the first album was a document of the trio's very first meeting, this album comes after a whole series of gigs played by the trio, and shows how they have learnt to work together and find their own language.
Browne and Sanderson have both expanded their pallettes with additional instruments and sounds - more percussion, feedback etc- whilst Thompson's distinctive microscopic scrabble hangs plangent chords over the racket, or squeezes between the stereo hubbub to explore the territory in between.
Whilst very much in the tradition of British Free Improv, there is no trio quite like this one.
