The Locals - out now

The player above is linking through to Discus Music's Bandcamp site. We love Bandcamp for its player and download delivery - but we prefer you to return here and buy direct from our main website!  If you decide to buy PLEASE use the View Product button above not the buy link in the player.

 

Here's why –  

1 - It could cost you less. Depending on where you live and the product you choose, Bandcamp can add 20% VAT to the basic price.

2 - If you spend more than £25 here, you get a 30% discount on the extra spent.  That discount isn't available on Bandcamp.

3 - Discus pays 15% commission on the Bandcamp price, which means we receive less cash to plough back into our new releases.

4 – You’ll still be able to access your music through your Bandcamp collection even when you buy direct from Discus. 

      An exciting live performance recorded at the Konfrontation Festival, Ulrichsberg in 2006, featuring six early compositions by Anthony Braxton arranged for the band by Pat Thomas.

 

When Discus Music asked Pat what recording he had in his personal archive that he would most like to see released, this one was Pat’s choice.   On first thought, the idea of arranging Braxton’s angular and complex melodies for a funk based band might seem like an off the wall idea.  But Pat didn’t become a first call improviser in a massive range of playing situations worldwide by making obvious moves.   Pat’s arrangements allow Alex Ward’s stratospheric clarinet to fly over the band’s churning grooves, and much excitement was generated in the process – as can be heard from the wild audience response!
