The Thing

“The sheer power they generate from wood, metal, breath and muscle is stunning”—BBC

Potent and uncompromising, The Thing’s high-energy immolation of genre renders free jazz, noise and garage rock into “a seething mass of molten bass saxophone, filthy fuzz bass and machine gun snare” (The Quietus). With a repertoire that ranges from Steve Lacy to the White Stripes and noise rock guerillas Lightning Bolt, The Thing is a sonic strike force of three of Scandinavian creative music’s most commanding and important figures. With Sweden’s Mats Gustafsson sax, live electronics, and Norwegians Ingebrigt Håker Flaten bass and Paal Nilssen-Love drums.
