about

'Black Shuck' is a dusty, claustrophobic extension of the extraordinary organ and saxophone improvisations Kit Downes and Tom Challenger last collected on 'Vyamanikal' [SLP024].

Dubbed in a limited cassette run, 'Black Shuck'’s two expansive cuts span the full range of Downes and Challenger’s language - the tape’s A-side embedding piano and sax. within a tangled, volatile septet, its B-side a stark, pared-down duo.

'Black Shuck' - recorded respectively in Snape Maltings and Huddersfield - is testament to the pair’s restless reinvention of Vyamanikal’s Suffolk-centric material. Recent and forthcoming performances include Aldeburgh Festival, Manchester Jazz Festival, Cologne Philharmonie, and Kings Place.

'Black Shuck' [SLP032] is available on C25 tape, with download, from 15th November. It comes packaged with a fold-out double-sided A3 poster with artwork by Alex Bonney.
