buy now

London’s critically acclaimed F-IRE Collective release the second volume in the F-IRE Works compilation series in October 2006 to coincide with their UK tour for the Contemporary Music Network. 

This latest offering is a double CD which offers a glimpse of some exciting, unexpected directions from these musicians. We can expect to experience these new projects in greater depth over the coming year. Django Bates has provided a liner note endorsement.

Disc One places well known success stories of recent times such as Acoustic Ladyland, Polar Bear, and the Jonathan Bratöeff Quartet, alongside sneak previews of forthcoming albums from Nick Ramm’s Clown Revisited, Barak Schmool’s Méta Méta, Basquiat Strings with Seb Rochford, Squash Recipe (yet another collaboration from Tom Arthurs), and a duo from Ingrid Laubrock and Liam Noble.

Disc Two represents a foray into the field of electronic experimentation for many of these artists. It includes a preview of the forthcoming album for Robert Mitchell’s Panacea, Jonathan Bratöeff’s Points of Perspective, Tom Arthurs and Ollie Bown Electric duo, Sebastian Rochford’s Fulborn Teversham, Ezzthetic and a collaboration between Ingrid Laubrock and Leafcutter John.
