    What if they are Henry Cow improvisations 2020?
    If it isn't Krautrock, it's krap.

    At the gig I saw, John G told me it was the first time they'd EVER performed as a trio.

    Other than the occasion mentioned above by Ian, where Frith sat in with The Artaud Beats at the RIO Fest, they'd played together as part as the large ensemble, including a Henry Cow set (of just Lindsay Cooper compositions) for the series of tribute concerts for Lindsay in late 2014. Frith/Cutler and Greaves/Cutler have often played together since HC, but Greaves/Frith not so much.

    Holy Cow! (pun intended). Awesome! What a great gift out of the blue. Can't wait until May 2020.

    Thank you both for the information.

    I think Cutler, Frith and Greaves should form an avant-extremetal powertrio donning the latter on growlervox over lyrics about triumphs of pure impending evil.

    I think they should make a concept album about Rick Wakeman.

    Yes, with Steve Howe on lead vocals and any 3 of Crimsons drummers.

    ^ That's actually a pretty damn GREAT interview.

    Cutler was and is one of the most enlightening theorists of his specific craft, an observer as well as a partaker and one whose main concern is indeed not to contribute to myth but to crush it - meaning there'll be no "I'm not Chris Cutler but an idea occupying the body of Chris Cutler" ravenous soliloquy.

    Interestingly, whereas the usual cause for embarrassment in interviews with Cutler stems from an overeager attempt by the interviewer to somehow relate Henry Cow and R.I.O. to other "progressive" ventures of rock, this one appears to be as desperate to relate them to "punk" in just about every possible configuration imaginable. And Cutler STILL fences off the relation - thus crushing the myth.

    Thanks. This was great (if you're into interdisciplinary research methods -- if you want Henry Cow chat, there's one interesting paragraph).
