Album info

In the early 1960s british drummer Tony Oxley once was in need to find a name fitting well for his acitvities together with Derek Bailey and Gavin Bryars. He went to his bookcase, spiritedly took out a volume by british composer Joseph Holbrooke - and that was it! The Joseph Holbrooke Trio was founded [1]. We found a similar situation here, in need for proper track names for the six free improvisations which make up this album. We opened our bookcases and extracted a volume by german dadaist Hans Arp [2], combined with several mystery sources, and that worked for us!
