Reviews of Golden Age of Steam (The)

 

25/11/2012 Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

'It’s 21st-century British jazz which frolics in the spaces between rock, free jazz, sound sculpture and knob-twiddling, and the trio has found a distinctive and coherent way of combining these disparate elements into some kind of mad circus-y whole.'

 

19/11/2012 Daniel Spicer, BBC music online

'Allsopp’s compositions show a sly disregard for genre, and a keen sense of the potential absurdity inherent in juxtaposition...Who knew nightmares could be so much fun?'

 

16/11/2012 Mike Hobart, Financial Times

'The album, built on the Pythonesque conceit of a rundown circus, veers from free-jazz fury and abstract beeps to pulled-out blues and whispery ballads. Added brass, strings and out-of-context samples enhance the sense of anguish.'

 

22/10/2012 Robert Shore, UK Metro

'Welcome To Bat Country is the perfect aural mood-setter for avant-garde Halloween parties.'

 

25/03/2012 Geoff Winston, London Jazz

Their strength lies in the way their individual voices fashion the personality of this compact unit, as they work around the texts...'Bat Country' showed the band's full range at its best. Allsopp's bass clarinet was in edgy mode as Giles strained forward in search of a tricky, elusive beat. Welling, sustained notes from Downes held the tension with Bonney's atmospheric pulses and Goller's vibrating bass lines, before Allsopp re-entered the fray with crafted sax phrasing to put his stamp on the well-balanced, constantly shifting amalgam.
