I can’t believe that I hadn’t seen this release on Bandcamp before today!! I thought I would check if a search of“Drums off Chaos” produced anything here on Bandcamp and found this. It’s amazing!! Especially after seeing Drums Off Chaos play in Cologne two days ago as part of the Tribute to Jaki Liebezeit concert. And this is a most wonderful recording - you should buy it immediately and anything else that is released by them. I do hope there is more to come.
I saw Jaki play several times and it was always a marvelous experience. I met him only once to speak to - after a Damo Suzuki Band gig on the 26th or 27th of December 1987 at the Stadtgarten, Köln. He was such a kind and warm presence. I was a student and poor and he gave me a lift to my hotel in his car. I will always remember him drumming on the dashboard and steering wheel of his car as he waited at the traffic lights. He was kindness in/and rhythm. The world is seems a little diminished without him in it - but I hope that the “many recodings” mentioned above may eventually pop up as releases so the world can hear them. David Kellett
