Steamboat Switzerland / Alessandro Bosetti
Steamboat Switzerland (CH)
Steamboat Switzerland is a Swiss Hammond Avantcore Trio consisting of Dominik Blum (hammond), Marino Pliakas (bass) & Lucas Niggli (drums). Their legendary performances (few bands that are so insanely in tune with each other) are situated somewhere in the no-mandsland between Free Jazz, Free Rock, Noise & Impro, an area where Supersilent also dares to venture at times. Clear proof that avant-garde & hardcore do go together. Their most recent CD Wertmüller (released on Church of Grob) contains exclusively work by Michael Wertmüller (Alboth!), written especially for the trio and for the first time combines their razor-sharp recorded instrumental music with dark vocals. Steamboat Switzerland, by the way, is active on a wide front. Just last summer, for instance, they played at Patti Smith’s Meltdown festival together with Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Nick Franglen (Lemon Jelly), . in John Cale’s band. After Austria’s Mosz, we continue to highlight the musical flanks of the Alps. Do not expect a soothing cruise on Lake Geneva, but rather a no-holds-barred steamboat (read speedboat) -trip, about which the press, after their passage on Domino 2001, still speak in superlatives.
