As requested, here it is the first LP of R.I.O. related ORTHOTONICS. Started as a trio (Danny Finney-sax, Paul Watson-trumpet, Pippin Barnett-drums), but after addition singer-guitarist Rebby Sharp (and Tom Carson on bass), they bridged their free/improv origins with alternative rock. Angular forms leave space for a post punk minimalism rich in jazz colours, while the horns support the tight rhythmic character of the songs or invade the picture developing mellow themes and short, witty dialogues.
A fresh, pop edged, experimental work (mixed by Fred Frith), that brings in mind avant new-wave sounds from the other side of the Atlantic.
