Soldier Kane - with Jonathan Kane

Jonathan and I have been develoing a repertoire of American music with him on drums (he's a master, was drummer with LaMonte Young's Forever Bad Blues Band, the various Rhys Chatham groups, original drummer for Swans) and electric guitar, which he likewise slams on, and me on violin. Check out the tracks on our webpage.  It sounds like studio stuff, but all recorded live using a looper in the garage we use to practice. A piece inspired by Hoagy Carmichael, a Meters tune, and a Johnny Winter number.

We've done one gig now and plan more, do send suggestions for where and when ...
