AMM – at the roundhouse

Feb.07, 2012

 

AMM – live at the Roundhouse – Incus EP1 , 45 rpm, (UK) , 1972

 

Some 100 copies made (?)

 

 

One of the earliest documents on the British Incus label , founded by Derek Bailey, Evan Parker and Tony Oxley. And definately one of the hardest to find. A rare opportunity to hear the AMM duo of Gare and Prevost!

A music with unusual qualities… very searching and balanced… no free jazz excursions… just the AMM connection, but with only two acoustic instrument. a VERY interesting study in music!

B- side is all about colour and minimal energy. Beautiful! and a very early example of what is later during the 2000´s happening in the world of improvised music and minimal improv…

AMM started in mid 60´s together with guitarist Keith Rowe, but this version is quite a spectacular one.

Amazing design, amazing music and check the original logo out, in the lower left corner of the backside!
