Biography of Fraud

Fraud is the brainchild of multi instru-mentalist James Allsopp and drummer Tim Giles and features the daemonic antics of guitar antichrist Stian Westerhus, the frankly sick drumming of Ben Reynolds and the keyboard melting stylings of fraudulent German Philip Hochstratte. Their music, composed by Allsopp and Giles, combines ruthlessly trimmed grooves, an abbatoire approach to improv and electronic soundscapes with a cut and paste approach to structure.

They have been tipped as a band to watch out for by Birmingham and Cheltenham artistic director Tony Dudley-Evans in Jazz UK magazine and have been interviewed in Jazzwise magazine for their May 2006 edition in the Taking off Column. They have been tipped as a band to watch in 2007 in Jazzwise magazine, by Tony Dudley-Evans, Jazzwise Journalist Mike Flynn and Jazzwise editor Jon Newey who described their music as being "the Jazz equivalent of the Texas chainsaw massacre".
Since their formation in May 2005 they have played all over London and have recently sallied forth enmasse to perform at the 2006 Cheltenham Jazz Festival as part of the Jerwood rising Stars Programme. They have also been featured on the BBC's Jazz on 3 programme, and were picked as part of their programme of the best live gigs of 2006.
