THICK AS THIEVES

New Album 18th November 2022

Adventurous and free-flowing, Thick As Thieves is a nimble and dynamic outpouring of ideas and musical empathy. Whilst the unshackled phrasing of the Paul Motian Trio, the low-end, post-punk riffs and rhythmic pedals of Zu’s Carboniferous, the hymnal searchings of Albert Ayler, the sonic textures of Ribot’s Scelsci Morning or the irreverent post-rock stylings of Jim Black’s AlasNoAxis might suggest an aesthetic starting point, Let Spin have created a powerful and expressive album full of vitality and purpose, one which is original and daring and one which places Let Spin as a unique voice on the contemporary European scene.

The band comprises guitarist Moss Freed (Union Division; Spike Orchestra), saxophonist Chris Williams (Led Bib; Sarathy Korwar), bassist Ruth Goller (Skylla; Melt Yourself Down) & drummer Finlay Panter (Beats & Pieces Big Band), resulting in an explosive mixture of stylistic influences. Their collaborative way of working and focus on improvisation leads to incendiary live performances, allowing the music to venture into territories that are unforeseen even to the musicians themselves.
