Fire!: You Liked Me Five Minutes Ago [CD] (Rune Grammofon)
Label: Rune Grammofon    
Released in: Norway    


"This is the debut full-length release from excellent Swedish jazz trio, Fire! -- something of a supergroup with members from already well-known quarters. Sax player, improviser and composer Mats Gustafsson is probably best-known from power-jazz trio The Thing, but he has also played more than 1,500 concerts and participated on around 150 records with musicians such as Peter Brotzmann, Sonic Youth, Merzbow, Jim O'Rourke, Barry Guy, Otomo Yoshihide, Ken Vandermark, Hamid Drake, Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Joe McPhee, and countless others. Johan Berthling is a founding member of Tape and founded the Hapna label. His other current groups include Animes with David Stackenas and Raymond Strid and Sten Sandell Trio with pianist Sten Sandell and drummer Paal Nilssen-Love. Andreas Werliin is the drummer extraordinaire in Wildbirds & Peacedrums with fellow improv colleague, Mariam Wallentin, and they have released two acclaimed albums of modern, bluesy folk music. The collaboration of Fire! don't sound anything like the groups the members are normally associated with, which is exactly the way it should be. Titles inpired by the late poet Robert Creeley"
