ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
SAMA-nominated bassist Dan Wilson and sax buddy Luke Townsend continue to shift their experiments in acid jazzy fusion onto the dancefloor on this collection of improvised electro-global grooves.

So they're Durban's answer to electro-jazzy house hipsters Goldfish? Not even close. The missing links between Weather Report's funky post-Bitches fusion brew, the ECM record label's austere ambience and let's see ... yeah sure, Medeski, Martin and Wood's hip-bop head spaces is Creeper's departure lounge.

With collaborators including Daniel Sheldon (trumpet), Captain Asthma (beats) and Margaret Gribble (vocals) onboard their groove-centric collection of improvised joints swings between cosmic broken beats ("Save Our Souls"), artfully Afrobeaten tribal trance ("Mirage"), trans-pacific acid trips ("Roti Roll"), cinematic funk ("Colesberg on My Mind"), ambient new age breaks ("Die Vlakte") and blunted Beat jazz sketches about the paranoia of encountering a police road block when you're stoned ("Straight Ahead"). (Review by Miles Keylock: on Channel 24: Rated 4 out of 5 stars - http://www.channel24.co.za/Music/AlbumReviews/Creeper-The-Trip-20091102#.UXAWaDLutFg.facebook)

Rated by SA music critic Richard Haslop as one of his top albums worldwide of 2010. Conceptually, the album charts a journey in South Africa from Durban to Cape Town, each track describing events and landscapes along the way. The result is an exploration of an array of styles and influences that reflects their take on South Africa’s turbulent times.

In 2008 Creeper became a duo and began exploring heavier dance elements whilst retaining jazz-based improvisation and world groove. Creeper have released two other albums: Time it Was and Tune the Moon, both of which were with drummer Wesley Gibbens.
