ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in London England 1962 Andy began his musical life in Edinburgh, Scotland playing guitar with the band Dog Faced Hermans, a multi faceted eclectic group that mixed energetic post punk energy with traditional tunes and improvisations....
In 1990 he moved to the Netherlands after an invitation to join Dutch band The Ex and continues to be a full time member of this band....the openess and versatility of the musicians in this group has brought them intocontact with many musicians from different scenes and backgrounds..including Tom Cora(cello), Han Bennink(drums), Wolter Wierbos(trombone), Djibril Diabate (kora) John Butcher (sax) and Anne james Chaton (sound poet).

In 95 he performed his first series of completely improvised concerts as a duet with Terrie Ex, and later released a video of the best performances. In 1996 he began another group with Tony Buck (Necks), Joe Williamson and Leonid Soybelman (Ne Zhdali) called Kletka Red...fusing traditional Klezmer, Greek and Russian songs with their own frantic styles of playing....
In more recent years Andy has involved himself more with the Amsterdam improvisation scene and has worked alongside electronic musicians as well as composing soundtracks for films and he performing regularily with dancers such as Magpie music and Dance Company with Katie Duck .

2000 and onwards
not long after the millennium change andy began working more frequently with electronic musicians ..particularly kaffe matthews , yannis kyriakides , Thomas Lehn and Colin Mclean
In the summer of 2000 he composed along with Anna McMichael (New Ensemble) a short soundtrack for a film called EPIC by artist Marion Coutts (Dog Faced Hermans).
The following year he composed another soundtrack for her film No Evil Star.
The year 2001 brought him into contact with more dancers including Martin Sonderkamp(Magpie) ..Body Weather ….he also launched a new CD label along with composer and electronic musician Yannis Kyriakides and Isabelle Vigier called Unsounds…
2002 was spent touring extensively with The Ex in Europe USA and Ethiopia …

2003 and 2004 he has worked with THERMAL (with John Butcher and Thomas lehn) and further with MAGPIE Music and dance Company and sound poet Anne james Chaton .

2005 saw collaborations with dancer and choreographer Nora Heilmann with a piece called “Skunk” and with the The Ex and D’Electrique (a dutch theatre group established 25 years ago ) doing a performance of Anthony Burgess s “A Clockwork Orange “

2006 The year the Ex becomes a 4 piece again after 20 years ….terrie and andy both use baritone guitars to replace the bass….
Andy performed with his favourite DJ DJ Rupture and plans a future joint release with him on both their labels …
Also a plan to ressurect a long awaited 4 tet called dairy ..with musicians Steve heather, Yannis Kyriakides and Joe Williamson ….they have performed twice so far providing a live improvised soundtrack to a manipulated version of a 1929 Rene Clair film called The Crazy Ray
Other plans this year include a solo guitar release on unsounds …and a possible second duo release with yannis this time working around the theme of rembetika music

A very peculiar view
This guy is really a must hear for anyone involved in creative use of the electrig guitar. Using his head instead of his muscles Andy paints weird portrait and snaps odd landscapes showing us that he have learnt the verb from holy prohphets from Derek Bailey to Fred Frith from Loren Connors to Marc Ribot.
A brilliant work indeed!

what you get is what you expect and hope for from andy ex playing solo, and at times layered with himself. frequently scratchy and raw, detuned and maltreated, the sounds alone are a joy. then a passage of lush brilliance pulls your heartstrings gently like the poignantly soft tones he puts forth. there's no filler and it's not lacking for intensity nor variety. anyone familiar with the DFH or the EX will know the tonality, and fans of Kletka Red's eastern touches will find them here as well. recalls similar guitar wonders from the likes of Fred Frith, Loren Connors, and quite a bit of EN's Alexander Hacke. a highly recommended piece of work from an extremely talented and versatile composer and musician.
