Chris Cutler has had to withdraw from the Yumi Hara 2-Day Residency at Cafe Oto, 11-12 Sept 2021, to self-isolate.
We are glad to announce that we've been able to persuade Guy Evans to leap to the rescue.
Guy is best known as the drummer for Van Der Graaf Generator.
He also played with The Misunderstood, Arthur Brown, Amon Düül II and Mother Gong.
He is a founder member of Echo City, a band of musician-designers who perform on giant self-made instruments,
collectively known as sonic playgrounds.
He now regularly plays in the improvising collective, AMM All Stars,
whose live performances and xenochronic compositions are broadcast weekly on Resonance FM’s Late Lunch With Out To Lunch.
We are all looking forwards very much to working with him this weekend.
