about

From a review of the original show:
Blood Quartet are hard to categorise. Doomjazz? Kind of, but without any metal trappings. Noise? Lots of it but always contrasted with something elegant and delicate. Ambient? Surprisingly so, sometimes. And the more they play live, the more these and other ingredients are effortlessly blended on the hoof to produce an experience both cathartic and otherworldly. So, very lucky to catch them at London’s Iklectik at the end of a short – four gigs in four days – UK tour. BQ’s Mark Cunningham said, just before the performance, that the music was getting good and he was in no way wrong.
Certainly, the tunes have progressed beyond the versions to be heard on the album “Deep Red” (2016) or cassette “Dark Energy” (2015) – the essential structures are intact, a haunting trumpet here, a throbbing bass or synth rhythm there, but there’s a collective force, a group energy present that opens up the possibilities, and an organic fluidity in the way all four – Cunningham, Rueda, Bela, & Coll– effortlessly pursue the music.
