"Greetings, grapple fans" were the words that introduced Saturday afternoon wrestling on British commercial television when all three members of this trio were boys. These memorable words were spoken by a silky-voiced commentator called Kent Walton, who commentated on wrestling between 1955 and 1988. When discussing improvised music, there are three frequently-used analogies that usually come to mind: having a conversation, making love, or wrestling. Wrestling seems particularly apt when thinking about the music of Hession/Wilkinson/Fell, as the group does tend towards a playful, grappling style. This irreverence is conducive to making good music and it speaks of their ease with each other's playing that they can throw each other around and pin each other to the canvas, musically-speaking. This recording was made during a reunion tour for over 20 years of playing together, and it is their first for Bo' Weavil. They have recorded for a number of labels in the past; Fell's Bruce's Fingers imprint and Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace, but this is their first in many years. Here's hoping it's the start of many more. Limited to 350 copies.
