• john butcher & gino robair Bottle Breaking Heart Leap (LP, £10.50)

    Californian Gino Robair and Londoner John Butcher first played together on a 1997 recording session in Oakland, California. Since then they have worked extensively as a duo, periodically expanding to form trios with Matthew Sperry (bass), Miya Masaoka (koto), Derek Bailey (guitar), Thomas Lehn (synth) and, most recently, The Apophonics with John Edwards (bass). Robair also plays in the 7-piece John Butcher Group. This album is an intense document of a live recording from St. Margaret of Antioch church, Leeds from 2012. Originally recorded by Simon Reynell at Left Bank.
