Chris Dadge and Scott Munro (aka the Bent Spoon Duo) recorded this album at Weeds Cafe in Calgary in 2012 as a duo, extending their set to a trio with the compatible style of Allison Camera on amplified & mangled banjo and kalimba.

Bent Spoon Duo
With & Without Allison Cameron

Bent Spoon Duo: With & Without Allison Cameron (Bug Incision Records)
Label: Bug Incision Records    
Released in: Canada    

"Allison Cameron first came to our attention via her killer Rat-Drifting album, The Allison Cameron Band, with Eric Chenaux and Stephen Parkinson. Its weird, warped string action was right up our alley. Next, she was booking a Canadian tour, and we were more than happy to present her music at the Bug Incision concert series.

Chris Dadge and Scott Munro (aka the Bent Spoon Duo) played before her solo set, and they all played together after her solo set. Turns out her amplified & mangled banjo and kalimba meshed quite nicely with Dadge & Munro's table of stringed things, samplers, and assorted detritus.

The basic Bent Spoon Duo methodology is two-fold: a) sound as confusing/disorienting/mysterious as possible, while b) overlapping freely into each others' timbral regions.

Well, Cameron does a pretty good job of part a) on her own, so she jumped right in there. Comes out all sounding like nothing else in particular, except maybe a bit like they caught a whiff of the same breeze that's blown past the UK's Hunter Gracchus/Chora camp. Dense, strange, and rowdy."-Benoit Hughes
