Buck and Butcher first played in duo in 2004 when they joined The EX "Convoy Tour".
They appear on the DVD And So Say All Of Us, filmed as part of The EX 33 1/3 celebration 10 years later.
Vellum with Magda Mayas -
Fiamme with Burkhard Stangl -
With Ikue Mori at "Blow Out".
The best came last. Fiamme's music had vitality and a sense of purpose. It took improvisatory risks, displayed individual virtuosity and collective alertness. It was genuinely exciting and it sounded really good. Buck is a wonderfully oblique energiser, relentlessly attending to texture and percussive colour as he generates momentum. Stangl's clenched or splintered chords, pedal-swell and dramatic attack proved a great foil for Butcher's intensity, inventiveness and cliche-free expression.
