Tour Preview: Beck Hunters UK Tour
Sheffield-based saxophonist Mick Beck set up his new trio around 18 months ago, featuring Anton Hunter on guitar and Johnny Hunter on drums. To mark the release of their debut album on Discus, The Hunt Is On, the trio will be playing dates across England during February and March.
The album caught the attention of many critics and has received positive reviews:
Aggressive when it needs to be, but comfortable winding down into unhurried, meandering humour, it sounds like a miniature Art Ensemble at play. - Daniel Spicer, The Wire
…truly mind-blowing, ranging between a cardiac arrest, epileptic fit and a nervous breakdown. The trio are extremely tight, threatening to unravel before skilfully coming back into sync. - Rob Aldam, Now Then Magazine
Full information on the album can be found on the Discus website and the tour dates are listed below.
Thu 5th February - Over the Top, Sheffield
Thu 12th February - Noise Upstairs, Manchester
