Artist: Charles Hayward (This Heat) UK / KGB (A)

Charles Hayward is an English drummer and was a founding member of the experimental rock groups This Heat and Camberwell Now. He also played with Mal Dean's Amazing Band, Dolphin Logic, and gigged and recorded with Phil Manzanera in the group Quiet Sun project as well as a short stint with Gong. He was a session musician on The Raincoats' second album, Odyshape, and on one occasion played drums for the anarchist punk band Crass. Since the late 1980s he has concentrated on solo projects and collaborations, including Massacre with Bill Laswell and Fred Frith. His first solo record, Survive the Gesture, was released in 1987. Since then, he has released 10 more long players, and has been touring with the reformed This is not This Heat. On November 25th, Charles will play a rare solo show in Vienna.
Thomas Berghammer - Trompete
Susanna Gartmayer - Bassklarinette

Didi Kern, Susanna Gartmayer und Thomas Berghammer trafen erstmals 2006, bei der - vom amerikanischen Musiker Marco Eneidi initiierten - Montagssession im Wiener Kellerlokal Celeste aufeinander.
Das erste Konzert als KGB Trio folgte 2007.
Gemeinsam ist den drei Instrumentalistinnen das Wechselspiel mit Rollenzuschreibungen im Bandgefüge, sowie die Freude an einer stilistischen Offenheit.
So steht das Experiment mit abstraktem Klang gleichermaßen im Fokus wie treibender Groove oder eingängig Melodiöses aus allen Himmelsrichtungen.
