Jac Berrocal D. Fenech V. Epplay, Colin Potter
Jac Berrocal is a 1946-born musician (trumpet player), poet and sometime film actor who came of age in the ‘70s Paris improv scene, where the boundaries between music, art and theatre were porous and begging to be breached. Inspired by bebop, chanson, free jazz, beat poetry, early rock ‘n roll and myriad Eastern influences, and with an iconoclastic, anything-goes approach to instrumentation and technique that would later align him with post-punk sensibilities, Berrocal blazed an eccentric and unstoppable trail across the underground throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, both solo and as part of the Catalogue group he co-founded. During this time his uproarious performances routinely wound up jazz and rock audiences alike, but earned the admiration of many musicians: Steven Stapleton invited him to perform on two Nurse With Wound albums, and other notable collaborators in his career include Sunny Murray, Lizzy Mercier-Descloux, Lol Coxhill, Yvette Horner and James Chance. Together with David Fenech and Vincent Epplay he has released two phenomenal albums, a third one is in the works. Liccht are incredibly happy to invite this trio to Vienna. A very special event!
Beginning in the late 1970s, UK sound wizard Colin Potter has worked as an experimental musician and sound engineer known for his playful approach to sound. Aside from his own work, he runs the long standing ICR label and has collaborated with Nurse With Wound, Current 93, Organum, and other luminaries of the experimental underground. He is a permanent member of Nurse With Wound who have covered Jac Berrocal's seminal track Rock'n'Roll Station. Colin Potter plays few solo shows nowadays, a rare chance to see him live.
