BRICK QUARTET (MTL/NZ)
The Brick Quartet consists of three musicians from Montreal, Canada—Vicky Mettler on guitar, Raphaël Foisy-Couture on bass and Jacob Desjardins on drums joined on tour this fall by New Zealand saxophonist Jeff Henderson. The group stems from an impromptu recording session in September 2013, which was later released as an album titled ‘Built like a Brick Shithouse’. The music brings together sounds from jazz, European free improv, blues and western folk music with dismantled rock rhythms and jagged noise.
“It’s punch after punch under a heavy strobe, until all that’s left is a willing pulp of flesh now able to understand that there’s few musics are ferocious and independent as jazz. Those left to still call its name do so with a passion that is unmatched. Henderson, Mettler, Foisy and Lachance are but a chosen few.”

The man who redefined pop art and created the Exploding Plastic Inevitable, which gave rise to the Velvet Underground, would have been 84 on this date. To commemorate the artistic legacy of this countercultural vanguard, a number of locals hit the Boho stage.
Edmonton’s demon of drone!
