Like a Jazz Machine
Druga Godba Festival
The classical trio line-up – piano, bass, drums – is revisited from top to bottom, free from any stylistic constraint. The band’s music, entirely acoustic since double-bassist Vincent Ruiz joined early 2012, is constantly evolving.
One could find varied influences such as Steve Reich, Philip Glass, The Necks, Craig Taborn, Matthew Shipp, Rabih Abou-Khalil, Nizar Rohana, Berlioz, Squarepusher, Plastikman, Mad Professor, Scorn…
Formed in 2007 in Geneva, Plaistow – the band’s name was inspired by a composition of Squarepusher – has since given more than a hundred concerts (Switzerland, France, Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Germany, Morocco, Middle East…) and publishes in April 2013 their eighth record.
After a long collaboration with various netlabels, primarily Insubordinations, the last album, Citadelle, is released by the swiss label Two Gentlemen Records (distribution Irascible)
