Just completed a tour of Norway with Paal Nilssen-Love’s 11 piece big band Large Unit, and it was great fun. Expect more festival dates with this band throughout the year.

Paal Nilssen-Love Large Unit is:

Jon Rune Strøm: double and electric bass

Klaus Ellerhusen Holm: alto and baritone saxophone
Kasper Værnes: alto saxophone
Thomas Johansson: cornet

Super Otomo Yoshihide Single

Dry Lungs Records in Austria have released a new 7″ single – my favorite format for the noise – of me and the great master Otomo Yoshihide. Titled “Super Single” is a turntable duet recorded in Tokyo at the Super Deluxe club in early 2011. You can order the 7″ from the label here. I’ve also got a handful of copies available.
