To Be Real

Dunmall, Paul / John Edwards / Tony Marsh: To Be Real (FMR)

Label: FMR    
Released in: Great Britain    


"Doyens of this music will know that Tony Marsh passed away a few years ago now, and this was one of his last recordings. A much loved drummer percussionist of supreme talent and the backbone of many ensembles. Consisting of 4 tracks, the first was recorded live at the Vortex in London in 2010 by Gus Gusseti, whilst the the remaining 3 where recorded in the studios of the University of England in Bristol in 2007, With none of this music previously released we are lucky this great trio (that also boasts the incredible bass player John Edwards) can be heard at their peak. "-FMR



"After taking up the bass, around 1987, John Edwards co-formed The Pointy Birds who went on to win awards for their music for The Cholmondeleys and Featherstonehaughs dance troupes. The group appeared at festivals in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Moers, Leverkusen, Copenhagen. Around 1990, Edwards played his first gigs with London improvisers such as Roger Turner, Lol Coxhill, Maggie Nicols, Phil Minton.

Between 1990 and 1995 Edwards was a member of three touring groups simultaneously: B-Shops For The Poor, The Honkies and GOD. During this period he also became an increasingly regular player on the London improvised music scene and performed his first solo gigs; he composed and performed music theatre with the bass and cello duo The Great Explorers, street-busked a lot and appeared at many more festivals in Germany, Estonia, France, Italy, Czech, etc.

Since 1995 John Edwards has become a "mainstay" of the London scene, playing with just about everybody, an activity that has seen him clocking up between 150 and 200 gigs a year. He has become regular player with Evan Parker, in many groupings, and with Tony Bevan, Veryan Weston, and Elton Dean, often in collaboration with Mark Sanders on percussion. He has become a more frequent player on the European (and festival) scene, appearing at Taktlos, Ulrichsburg, Nickelsdorf, Budapest, New Zealand and in the USA. He continues to work on solo performances."
