Roji is a new project by Gonçalo Almeida (bass and loops) and Jörg Schneider (drums). They asked me to record some baritone on three tracks for their album 'The Hundred Headed Women', which has been released on CD by the Shhpuma / Cleanfeed label. The album also features three tracks with trumpet from Susana Santos Silva.

"To simplify, we can say that this recording sounds almost like an encounter between Bill Laswell and Mick Harris (Napalm Death), but simultaneously more trashy and more jazzy, more Public Image Limited and more Sunn 00))). We can compare Roji with the Italian band Zu, but there’s a fundamental difference: this isn’t fun. It’s amazing, in a very dark, frightening way. The movie “Antichrist” by Lars von Triers found a better soundtrack."

Line-up: Gonçalo Almeida - bass and loops, Jörg A. Schneider - drums, Guests: Susana Santos Silva - trumpet, Colin Webster - baritone sax
