In any collab there's always a moment of surprise or unexpected magic or weirdness or whatever. I love this idea of getting together, switching on and unleashing the whole shit free... Like these guys, for example. Pity they recorded only these 4 short pieces, which can't deliver the complete fun, but anyway thanx to Lambs trio for sharing this so called sketchy "tour documentation" from their Italy trip. Hope guys infront of stage had a great time))
In Eric's words: "Lambs Gamble is the new band i play in. I really like these tracks. Two great musicians. Fritz is in the great band Peeesseye — we are old friends — and George is an improviser bassist. Fritz on percussion, George bass and electronics and i play electronics, vocals and guitar. Really really fun stuff live, played with lots of energy. I think we need to do a "real" recording someday."
Fritz Welch began singing at the Hallelujah Bacon Church of Decatur, Georgia at the tender age of a heathen actionist goatherd. He has spent many hours avoiding work and death while playing drums and exploring other sculptural possibilities. In this practice the fundamental determinance of line and volume is accumulated in a collision of stripped down abundance and never ending occular vibration. He is an active member of Lamb's Gamble, Peeesseye, peeinmyfacewithsurgery and Ki.
George Cremaschi was born in New York City, and studied music and composition there. He has played with, and written for, dancers, rock bands, installation artists, improvisers, poets, film, folk musicians, theater groups, orchestras, and pop divas. Greg Goodman, Saadet Türköz, Ryuzo Fukuhara, Matthew Ostrowski, Nicolas Collins, Evan Parker, Trinh T. Minh-Ha, Liz Allbee, Burkhard Stangl, Mats Gustafsson, and Lê Quan Ninh are some of his favorite people to work with. He has appeared on over 30 recordings on the Apestaartje, Evolving Ear, Black Saint, Leo, Beak Doctor, Emanem, Rastascan, Music & Arts, Nine Winds and 482 Music labels. He currently lives in Tábor, Czech Republic, where he is a curator and administrator at CESTA, an international arts center.
Eric Boros began his musical career as a school fanfare trumpetist at a early age. Since then he has performed numerous times in many different nation states around the world, and has participated in a plethora of phonographic recordings - despite having crumpled his trumpet long ago in a fit of rage. Self-taught composer and improviser, he plays baritone and standard acoustic and electric guitars, and is notorious for his dissonant vocal crooning and caterwauling. Although he claims to live without electricity or any modern appliances (other than his solar-powered shortwave radio and guitar amplification devices), he is an atavistic electrician, and has used this unskill to construct electronic gadgets to generate accompaniment frequencies to his symphonic pieces. Boros is reputed to be living in seclusion on an island (or is it a mountain?), but travels regularly by kayak, bicycle, train, and various other forms of public transportation for repetitions and tours with Vialka, Lamb's Gamble, Crank Sturgeon and Chapelle 59.
