It’s not jazz, it’s not rock…Whatever you want to call it, this is one mighty sonic trip that paints colourful pictures in the mind.’ – Noel Mengel.
The Mothership has landed! Asteroid Ekosystem; the interplanetary sound craft featuring keyboardist Alister Spence (ASteroid) the legendary Ed Kuepper (EKosystem) plus Necks bassist Lloyd Swanton and drummer Toby Hall land in Marrickville this November for three Sydney only shows.
The mini-residency counts as shows 2, 3 & 4 for the largely improvisational quartet having made their debut in March this year off the back of their debut self-titled double CD release.“If you had to pin this album down, you might say it’s what could happen if Pink Floyd (circa 1969, in their experimental ‘scrabbling around looking for a post-Syd direction’ phase) collided with an unfeasibly muscular version of the Bill Evans Trio. Glorious stuff.” – Jazzwise
“.. there is so much to take in here, so many different images and moods. Hard to describe, but Asteroid Ekosystem is both powerful musical statement and the kind of musical gift that keeps on giving.” – Musictrust
