The Heat Death + West Hill Blast Quartet

Martin Küchen: saxophones
Kjetil Møster: saxophones and clarinet
Mats Äleklint: trombone
Ola Høyer: bass
Dag Erik Knedal Andersen: drums

The Heat Death is a Swedish/Norwegian band consisting of some key players of the vibrant Scandinavian improvised music scene. The quintet makes eclectic and ecstatic music propelled forward by an intelligent and intuitive interplay.

Outside of this group these players have their fingers in many other musical pies, such as The Cherry Thing, DATAROCK and AKODE (who played in Brighton not so long ago with the mighty Alan Wilkinson).


West Hill Blast Quartet
Ron Caines: saxophone
Dan Spicer: words and trumpet
Gus Garside: double bass
Andy Pyne: drums
They sent out Brighton Poetry Festival with a bang, and now they return yelping and squealing for more.


The Wildcard Quartet
At the end of every Safehouse open session four members are picked at random to form a one-off quartet to play at the show at the end of the month. This is them.
