If you’re free and easy in London tonight – and fancy an evening of intriguing piano music – try this. In spite of some of the more ominous language used in the Subba-Cultcha review, Bill’s music is as full of light, flight and green-leafed freshness as it is of strange chords and left-field turns. Fans of post-modernist dissonance, polystylism and mongrel English romanticism will all be well satisfied. As a bonus, you get extra listening pleasure via James Larcombe (of Stars In Battledress and Arch Garrison) fingering one of his collection of tuneful antiques.
Glass of wine and nibbles will be provided with Mr Drake’s compliments.
Be sure to arrive early to enjoy Mr James Larcombe performing on his marvellous melodeon.
Yew’s Paw is an album of piano pieces written and performed by Mr Drake at his pianoforte, and released in February 2007.
