Two brand new BEAK> tracks recorded in the autumn/winter of 2012 for a single. Released on the 10th December 2012 on INVADA records – this single has already had extensive radio promotion on BBC radio 6, and specialist shows on BBC radio 2. BEAK> were formed in 2009 by 3 musicians, Billy Fuller (bass), Geoff Barrow (drums) and Matthew Williams (keys-axe). The troupe have a strong ethos to making records – all albums come from live improv sessions with all musicians playing together in one room, no preconceived written ideas and once recorded no overdubs or fixing – what you hear is what happened. BEAK> have released 2 albums and toured extensively in Europe & the US, headlining shows and supporting Chris Cunningham & The Horrors along with playing many festivals in Europe (ATP, Primavera Sound, Route du Rock). Despite members all being in other bands they passionately feel that BEAK> should not be seen as a “side project” – they’re a real, continuous working band.
“The results are impressive…a record that’s heroically uncommercial but hypnotic none the less.”
“Theirs is a refreshingly opaque, charmingly fumbling sound world whose obstinate primitivism can’t conceal a playful musicality and facility for skewed, inside-outside grooves” ****
