Although he is perhaps best known for his work as a guitarist in The Fall between 1980-1 (he plays on their classic Slates 10") before becoming part of the London improv scene, Dave Tucker is an experienced improviser, having worked regularly with improvising ensembles such as the London Improvisers' Orchestra and the School of Velocity with Evan Parker. An edgy player with a sharp musical mind, Tucker mixes compelling rhythms, pointillism, atonality, electro-acoustic improvisation, and flexibility in playing techniques to explore new musical possibilities.
"It was also clear that the resourceful guitarist Tucker was as likely to slip in bluesy chord patterns, bottleneckeffects or gallumphing Munsters-rhythms as the abstract, Derek Bailey-like approach to melody he also favours." --The Guardian
