Fred Frith Interview

The tour was great, but intense (12 concerts in 14 days in 9 countries, so a lot of travel) and Jordan tested positive for Covid on entry into Tel Aviv, so he ended up having to stay there for a week while we carried on without him which was pretty frustrating. He was ably replaced by Sam Dühsler and Tom Malmendier who are both good friends and great drummers, but it’s not the same, obviously. We had started to prepare some composed material for the first time and that kinda went out of the window until the very end of the tour (we’ll be presenting it on our West coast tour coming up). But looking back it went remarkably well, with the beginning of the Ukraine war casting a long shadow and friends I expected to meet having Covid at the last minute, and all of that. Jesus. Interesting times to say the least…
