This is the debut collaborative release by Brussels-based P.V.T.V.. Wing-Chester is the chaotic meeting between the critical beats and mad rhythms of Teun Verbruggen (who improvised for two hours in a studio) and the avant-garde melodies and heavy guitars of Pierre Vervloesem (who built all the rest in a few days at home). It is the meeting of carnival music, Max Roach, Zappa and the off-kilter jazz from the Japanese anime show, Cowboy Bebop. Vervloesem has collaborated with such musicians as X-Legged Sally, A Group, Wim Vandekeybus and Charles Hayward (This Heat). Verbruggen has worked as a sideman in lots of different bands and musical styles: Jef Neve Trio, Fes, Futhark, an eclectic jazz band with Tobias Klein and Nozzle Slag (Electric Masada, Mr Bungle), and many more. Wing-Chester is a far-out journey of crunchy, high-end beats, walking bass melodies and angular weird-jazz meanderings that will make you feel like an astronaut.
