"Sometimes I wonder why it takes years for something to find its way to a release, but in this case, you could think: wow, that's really fast. The concert that we find on these recordings dates from September 4. I must assume the CD went into production the day after the concert. I believe I had not yet the pleasure to hear music as part of a duo (in some bigger groups, yes), and he teams up with recent improvised music convert Dirk Serries. The latter is on guitar. I would think this CD covers all (or almost all) of the concert they played that night, without too much editing or otherwise altering of the material. No attempts were made to make it different, and I should think, leaving us the audio testimony of the night. This is close to fifty minutes of a wild ride. Much of the interaction takes place in full hectic action, with a considerable amount of chaos. However, I would think that some of Hadow's playing involves patterns to be repeated before he realizes that they should be broken up. Maybe that adds a sort of free-jazz feeling to the music. Serries reacts accordingly, and together they spin some interesting pieces. I could imagine a situation with a bit more control, allowing them to break up much of this into shorter pieces; cut out the quiet bits, which no doubt document the night, but also take away some of the speed and aggression in these pieces, which it could have all the way through. I understand the need to document 'as is', but at the same time, I can see the possibilities also lying within these recordings. It might be a good idea to get these two back in the studio and record short pieces of the free-range improvisation coupled with young man aggression of a fresh punk band (which, of course, this is not). All of this is captivating music, raw and untamed." - FdW
