Energetic instrumental music that bridges rock and improvisation from the trio of Dominik Blum (Hammond organ), Marino Pliaka (ebass) and Lucas Niggli (drums), musicians more often associated with free improv, here on a well-informed and exciting rock romp.

Steamboat Switzerland (Blum / Pliakas / Niggli)

Steamboat Switzerland (Blum / Pliakas / Niggli): Zeitschrei (Trost Records)
Label: Trost Records    
Released in: Austria    

"The Swiss trio Steamboat Switzerland tackle the energetic and innovative border-crossings between hardcore and avant-garde and play compositions by Michael Wertmuller (drummer of Peter Brötzmann's Full Blast outfit) -- breath-taking, radical, exact."-Trost

"The Hammond avant-core trio Steamboat Switzerland is a damn wild and absolutely virtuoso project. They have played many different festivals -- from Donaueschinger Musiktage and Moers to London's Meltdown Festival. The group combines elements from rock, metal and contemporary scores. The sounds exchange between dark power ambient and 'Boulez on the Rock.'"-Eckhart Liess

Also available on vinyl LP.
