Power Jazz Commando Team Return to the Toon

Taupe with support from Dead Hedge Trio and Waskerley Way. Friday October 9, Head of Steam, Newcastle upon Tyne, £5, 8pm door.
(Press release)
Taupe, Newcastle’s own thrashy jazz-skronk three piece, are set to fill out the Head of Steam alongside stalwart local beat merchant Waskerley Way and Liverpudlian jazz-rock wranglers Dead Hedge Trio.
This genre spanning noise buffet is served up on October 9 as part of a three-date mini-tour from Edinburgh to Marsden Jazz Festival. Taupe’s first Newcastle show in 18 months will see them perform numbers from their self-released debut album (‘one of the albums of 2014’ – Bebop Spoken Here) as well as outings of brand new material ahead of a new release in 2016.
Formed at Newcastle University in 2011, the guitar-sax-drums three piece specialise in razor sharp polyrhythmic play and are fresh off a summer performing at Manchester Jazz Festival, Lancaster Jazz Festival and filming new material at the Edinburgh Fringe. Their show at Head of Steam, in collaboration with local label Endearment Records also represents the second meeting of Taupe with Dead Hedge Trio after being brought together through a mutual love of, and airplay on, BBC Radio 3’s Late Junction.
Dead Hedge Trio have been gigging out of Liverpool since summer 2012 and meld together influences from Afro-beat, shoegaze and psychedelic rock to form a singular, palatably groovy, aesthetic. The three piece are also proactive nurturers of the UK’s other left field jazz acts, having hosted Polar Bear, Sons of Kemet and Shatner’s Bassoon within the last 12 months.
Waskerley Way is a County Durham-born sound botherer. His most recent album Junk Playground was released on Box Records (Richard Dawson, Luminous Bodies) and draws on the technical approaches of music concrète and hip hop. A real titan of the North East’s musical landscape, irrespective of alias.
