Myke Atkinson uses this moniker as his vehicle for dense,
vibrating layers of guitar sound. In a live setting, you
find yourself immersed in his world. His latest recording
project is a set of
discs made to played in any order and
combination, suavely avoiding the synchronization problem as
he goes. Not to be missed, as always.

using a variety of instruments and approaches. They've

Crackling, multi-instrumentalists Jay Crocker and Chris

in Ryan Bourne's brand new band. This is their improvised
duo music, three years down the line.
