Peter Brotzmann's powerhouse trio with Mario Piakas and Michael Wertmueller, bringing Machine Gun visceral intensity into free improv that's not for the faint of heart!

Full Blast
Black Hole

Full Blast: Black Hole (Atavistic)
Label: Atavistic    
Released in: USA    

"To say Full Blast is a powerhouse is an understatement. These three men don't just rattle the house, they bring it down. They pierce them right through. They don't mess around with subtleties; they electrify the air with the sound of music that is here and now."-Tom Sekowski, Gazeta.

Shades of Last Exit (sans guitar) are evident, and Full Blast also frequently conjures the essence of Brotzmann's landmark early Free recording "Machine Gun" in it's visceral intensity. Herr Brö himself refers to Full Blast as "The Trio".

Black Hole lives up to it's moniker- and as such, is not recommended for the faint of heart. And after sensational performances at Brotzfest Tokyoand the hallowed Berlin & London Jazz Festivals, more high voltage is on undoubtedly the way.
