Top-notch weirdo jams from the north of England. Featuring Sloth Racket’s Sam Andrae on saxophone, David Birchall on guitar, and Otto Willberg on double bass, Hair In The Chimney brings an underground sensibility to free improvisation, with the musicians using unconventional techniques to defamiliarise their instruments.
