Debut by an improvisational trio made up of Kim Pieters (bass, organ, synthesizer), Bruce Russell (guitar, perc., synth) & Peter Stapleton (drums, synth, guitar). "Pieters & Stapleton are known as the core of the now defunct Dadamah, as well as for new projects like Flies Inside The Sun & Rain. Last Glass is comprised of 6 instrumental improvisations which range from the near-ambient to the red faced and throttling, sometimes covering this range in a single piece. Obvious points of reference are AMM, Musica Elettronica Viva and the Silver Apples, but Pieters/Russell/Stapleton skirt these static reference points like downhill slalom skiers. All the pieces bar one are single takes, without overdubs, but the soundscapes are far from sparse as a result. Built around propulsive percussive rhythms, the other instruments provide plenty of the 'scrub and woosh' you'd expect from an outfit with this kind of pedigree. The CD comes in the trademark Hermescorp manila folder, which contains a 14 x 42 cm. folder of Kim Pieters' artwork."
