The Microscopic Septet
Sept 2008: Cuneiform releases Lobster Leaps In, the first newly recorded Micros CD since 1998’s Beauty Based On Science. Fresh of a string of one-niters in Europe, the band went into the studio and recorded a set of classic Micros tunes, spanning the 12 years of their original incarnation, from “Almost Right” (number 3 in the Micros book) to more experimental tunes like “The Big Squeeze.” Long-time Micros fans celebrate the first new release in 20 years!
They will be re-reuniting and on the road again in Nov 2009.
Visit the Micros online for YouTube videos and audio from the new recording.
For those “in the know” we are offering a special Micros/Lobster Leaps In Artist Statement/History page, which tells the tale of how this CD came to be, and features additional mp3s from live recordings from gigs at venues like the (original) Knitting Factory, & the Village Gate. These are exclusively Micros “oddities” and will be changed from time to time.
