Stick Men - Tony Levin - Markus Reuter - Pat Mastelotto+ support The Fierce And The Dead

STICK MEN - Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto, the powerhouse bass and drums of the group King Crimson for a few decades, bring that tradition to all their playing. Levin plays the Chapman Stick, from which the band takes it’s name.

Having bass and guitar strings, the Chapman Stick functons at times like two instruments. Markus Reuter plays his selfdesigned touch style guitar – again covering much more ground than a guitar or a bass. And Mastelotto’s drumming encompasses not just the acoustic kit, but a unique electronic setup too, allowing him to add loops, samples, percussion and more.

TONY LEVIN - Born in Boston, Tony Levin started out in classical music, playing bass in the Rochester
Philharmonic. Then moving into jazz and rock, he has had a notable career, recording and touring with John Lennon, Pink Floyd, Yes, Alice Cooper, Gary Burton, Buddy Rich and many more. He has also released 5 solo CDs and three books. In addition to touring with Stick Men, since more than 30 years is currently a member of King Crimson and Peter Gabriel Band, and jazz bands Levin Brothers and L’Image. His popular website, tonylevin.com, featured one of the web’s first blogs, and has over 4 million visits.

PAT MASTELOTTO - Very rarely does a drummer go on to forge the most successful career on the demise of their former hit band. Phil Collins and Dave Grohl have managed it, so too has Pat Mastelotto, a self taught drummer from Northern California, who has also been involved with pushing the envelope of electronic drumming. Pat has spent a lifetime jumping genres from pop, to prog, to electronica to world music with – among others – Mr. Mister, XTC, David Sylvian, The Rembrandts, Kimmo Pohjonen, and for the last 20 years with King Crimson.

MARKUS REUTER - Markus is a composer, guitarist, and producer. Initially trained as a pianist, he
subsequently studied Robert Fripp’s Guitar Craft and learned to play the Chapman Stick, later moving onto the U8 Touch Guitar. Reuter has released several solo recordings and worked extensively with othe rmusicians. He is one of the core members of the experimental band Centrozoon, is half of the duo Tuner (with Pat Mastelotto) and was also a member of Europa String Choir. Reuter has collaborated with Ian Boddy, Robert Rich, No-Man singer Tim Bowness, and many others.

THE FIERCE AND THE DEAD
"The Fierce and the Dead play a sort of heavy, psychedelic instrumental rock that is very groovy and absolutely perfect for an outdoor festival." TOV

The Fierce And The Dead are an internationally acclaimed instrumental progressive rock band from the UK.

This year TFATD have just returned from their first appearance in the US at the esteemed Rosfest festival in Gettysburg, followed by the release of the well received live album Field Recordings - Live At Ramblin Man. This summer they are playing a string of festivals and recording their third full studio album.

Formed in 2010 as an instrumental three piece, The Fierce And The Dead’s sound has constantly evolved since debuting with a 19 minute one track EP, ‘Part 1’, that combined epic post rock with electronica, krautrock and psychedelia. 2011’s debut album ‘If It Carries On Like This We Are Moving To Morecambe’ added hardcore punk, jazz and ambient influences into the mix. Over the course of these two releases the band began to gain a cult following and critical acclaim from the underground and mainstream music press.

Early in 2012 the band started playing live the with the addition of second guitarist Steve Cleaton, giving TFATD a heavier edge to their sound that carried over to the ‘On VHS’ EP, which included live favourite ‘666…6’. At this point The Fierce And The Dead were often compared to King Crimson and Black Flag. More touring followed including the Rock-A-Rolla/Prog Magazine sponsored Stabbing A Dead Horse package tour alongside Knifeworld and Trojan Horse and an appearance on snooker player and ‘Weird’ music fan Steve Davis’s radio show.

2013 saw the release of Spooky Action, their first album since signing to the Bad Elephant Music label. Ever evolving, Spooky Action stayed instrumental but added interlocking Televison influenced guitars, math metal and songs about quantum physics to the band’s sound. Spooky Action appeared in numerous blogs and magazines end of year lists and was critically a
