Some Some Unicorn – Large Collective of Like-Minded Musical Magpies
SSU is a large collective of like minded musical magpies under the laid back eye of composer and improviser Shaun Blezard.
The band features members of Hugs Bison, Breathing Space, Pere Ubu, Beats and Pieces Big Band, Roddart, Ripsaw Catfish, Wire Assembly, Inclusion Principle, World of Fox and much more.
My first gig with the group was on Tuesday November 17th 2015 at The Fiddler’s Elbow. A recording of the gig will be released on Bandcamp as part of a SSU live album. In the mean time, you can hear it on Soundcloud:
The sound of Some Some Unicorn is improvised around loose ideas from Shaun to create a big band free drone soundscape similar to the paths trodden by Godspeed! You Black Emperor and The Kilimanjaro Death Jazz Ensemble with an eye on the world of later period Talk Talk.
Though players and poets come from a variety of backgrounds the heart of Some Some Unicorn is everyone’s belief in community, both musically and politically.
