Winging It!
by Hotpot

Limited edition 100 Compact Cassette

Non-sequenced retro analogue music tech-fuelled psychedelic jams. Hotpot was an impromptu band formed in South Manchester (UK) between 1998 - 2004. The juxtaposition of musical ideas allowed the band to create a dynamic form. Relinquishing control, having no fixed agenda, the music became spontaneous and exciting. An emphasis on improvisation allowed the musicians to simultaneously question their roles as both composers and performers. Their musical influences reference jazz, electronic and psychedelic music. £10.00 plus postage Email to order.
