Mi 23. Sep | Fire!

Mats Gustafsson . tenor, baritone saxophone, live electronics // Johan Berthling . electric bass // Andreas Werliin . drums and percussion

Der schwedische Ausnahmesaxofonist Mats Gustafsson leitet mit FIRE! eines der aufsehenerregendsten Powertrios Europas. Angetrieben durch die herausragende
Rhythmusgruppe um Johan Berthling am Bass und den Schlagzeuger Andreas Werlin entfachen sie gemeinsam ein psychedelisches Noisejazz-Feuerwerk. Die ausladenden rhythmischen Improvisationen und Kompositionen von FIRE! zeugen von einer mächtigen, meditativen Qualität, die von einer ungeheuren Dichte und großer emotionaler Tiefe geprägt ist. FIRE! wurde 2009 gegründet, im Januar 2018 ver-öffentlichten sie ihr sechstes Album »The Hands« bei Rune Grammofon und spielen nun das erste Mal im BunkerU.

Fire! is a trio from Sweden with members from The Thing, Tape and Wildbirds and Peacedrums. In 2009 they got together to develop a fresh approach to improvised music drawing on influences from free jazz, psychedelic rock, and noise. The result is a totally uncompromising and intriguing mix of (mostly) heavy, dark and intensely burning music.

The first album, You liked me five minutes ago, was recorded in Stockholm and released on Norwegian label Rune Grammofon in 2009. In the summer of 2011 Unreleased? came out, recorded in Japan with Jim O´Rourke on electric guitar.
Later that year they toured and recorded with Australian drone master Oren Ambarchi from Sunn O))) (guitar/electronics), resulting in in the mouth – a hand (2012). Early 2016 She sleeps, she sleeps was released on Rune Grammofon, to be followed by The Hands in 2018

The wrenching beauty of veteran blower Mats Gustafsson screaming painfully through his baritone sax like Rosemary’s baby was about to pop out the other end offered a pulse-quickening sonic shock to the system, while bassist Johan Berthling laid down steady ostinato grooves as connecting tissue between Gustafsson’s possessed squalls and drummer Andreas Werliin’s steady foundation of fat beats and dizzying polyrhythms.
