A slowly evolving music project featuring This Heat drummer/lynchpin CHARLES HAYWARD, Pinski Zoo and Crackle bassist NICK DOYNE-DITMAS and the words, voice and textures of avant-vocalist VIV CORRINGHAM, whose music walks a tightrope between song, improvisation and sound-as-sound. “We are making new song forms based on live improvisation. Every song is created in the actual moment of performance.” [V.C]

Their debut album ‘White World’ – released on forward thinking indie label Slowfoot - lays down the blueprint for their sound. Captured over four days of recording, the results were then slowly edited and manipulated in the studio, two tracks being entirely reconstructed from fragments accumulated in the sessions. The sound is mostly about the interaction between the musicians - driven by the restless energy, invention and power of Hayward’s drumming and underpinned by Doyne-Ditmas’ languid and exploratory double bass, to which Corringham contributes, with the aid of a loop pedal, her unique collage of words and sounds… “Song is at the heart of Monkey Puzzle Trio’s music.” [C.H]

"An utterly impressive début, 'White World' is the exciting sound of three musicians tuned perfectly to each other's sonic free-thinking." [Rock A Rolla]

'When this particular threesome converges, the result is a music that only exists as a very particular collision. The roots of their soundscapes are inextricably entwined with the German avant-groove combo Can producer Adrian Sherwood's output and The Slits, in their dubbier incarnation... ...A lightness of rhythmic touch is the main character of these improvised pieces.' [BBC online]

"Their debut was recorded in just four days and is one of the most mesmerizing avant-jazz albums that Notion has heard for some time." [Notion]
