The Seizures is a new
quartet from Providence's premier accordion player Alec K Redfearn.
Redfearn is a consistently compelling composer, and his most recent
visit to WFMU was with Providence avant-jazz group Barnacled. The new
quartet is inspired by everything from Eastern European folk traditions,
Captain Beefheart, Kurt Weill and
the Wipers. They refuse to be
categorized as gypsy punk.
