School of Velocity - Homework (03.2001)
The School of Velocity was originally a product of London's closely meshed improv scene in which everyone had the chance to play with everyone at every possible opportunity. The multi-instrumentalist and guitarist Dave Tucker initiated the project in 1998. At this point in time, he had already written a little music history: at the end of the 70's, beginning of the 80's he was a member of the legendary (post) punkband, The Fall, and since the beginning of the 90's he has been garnering more and more attention in London's improv scene. Today he works, among others, in a duo with John Butcher, in a quartet with Phil Minton, Roger Turner and Pat Thomas, in projects with Louis Moloho or as a composer for the London Improvisers Orchestra. In this context, the School of Velocity was nothing more than another ad hoc group to which Tucker invited the drummer Steve Noble, the saxophonist Evan Parker and later, the bassist John Edwards.
