"We are delighted to present the second album from this excellent Swedish trio, something of a supergroup with members from already well known projects. This time they collaborate with the legendary Jim O_Rourke. With their hypnotic, psychedelic jazz of sorts they have carved out a different sound than any of the groups they are normally associated with, now enhanced by the vital contributions from O_Rourke. Sax player, improviser, composer and fervent record collector Mats Gustafsson is possibly most know from powerjazztrio The Thing, he has also played more than 1500 concerts and participated on around 150 records with musicians like Peter Brötzmann, Sonic Youth, Merzbow, Barry Guy, Otomo Yoshihide, Ken Vandermark, Hamid Drake, Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Joe McPhee and a host of others simply too many to mention here. Johan Berthling has worked freelance with jazz, improvised music, pop, folk and more. He is a founder member of the great trio Tape and founded Häpna, one of our favourite record labels. Among his current other groups are Animes with David Stackenäs and Raymond Strid and Sten Sandell Trio with pianist Sten Sandell and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. Johan is also working as a record producer. Andreas Werliin, drummer extraordinaire in Wildbirds & Peacedrums, is Fire!_s youngest member and one of the most interesting and acclaimed new percussionists in the creative music scene of Scandinavia. Probably best know as a member of Sonic Youth and Gastr Del Sol, Jim O_Rourke has played with an impressivly large number of musicians and produced albums for the likes of Wilco, Sonic Youth, John Fahey, Smog, Beth Orton, Joanna Newsom and Stereolab, to name but a few."
