A gig held at Cafe Kino on Tuesday 29th August. The event starts at 19:30.


Special Measures & WAQK Club are at right angles to announce a much welcome, and long-overdue, return to Bristol for Michael Flower and Chris Corsano's incomparable duo.

Formed in 2005, they meld the propane-lit, overdriven drone-ragas of Michael Flower’s electrified shahi baaja and the melodically kinetic free drumming of Chris Corsano. They deliver an ecstatic onslaught of free sound that shifts seamlessly between tumultuous intensity and blissed-out serenity.

With a combined vintage taking in the likes of the Vibracathedral Orchestra, MV & EE, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Rangda, Bjork, Bill Orcutt, Joe McPhee, Paul Flaherty and an army of other outfits, the pair are an essential vector between the parallel worlds of psychedelic noise-rock and contemporary free jazz.

Join us for an intimate and unmissable* performance at Cafe Kino, 29th August.

Support comes from London based, Israeli-born, bass-clarinetist and multi-instrumentalist Yoni Silver. Yoni's performances draw on spectral music, the multi-layered textural saxophone of Evan Parker, Noise, Drone, and Middle Eastern Mijwiz music, all incorporated into an improvisational framework.

*with only 60 tickets for sale, this show is in fact dangerously missable; get em while they're going.
