“CUT Trio features the twin saxes of Tanja Feichtmair and Cene Resnik, on alto and tenor, sparring over the enthusiastic drums and percussion of Urban Kušar. Feichtmair is the only player I’m familiar with, and this is a very different forum to last year’s quietly fertile exploration of brittle noises with Gino Robair and Damon Smith. CUT Trio create rough and ready improvisations, bursting with restless energy, the horns twisting and turning around each other, willing each other on. This is no furious freakout though, there are also moments of great tenderness. Early on Dynamitron, Feichtmair intones barely audible vocals over the gentle enquiries of Kušar and Resnik. Things fall apart, so to speak, but then that’s why we listen to this stuff!

What Pelletron / Dynamitron really reminds me of is early Bruce’s Fingers releases, or the rather wonderful Holywell Concert where Lol Coxhill, George Haslam and Paul Rutherford joust with horns. This is released on the Slovenian Inexhaustible Editions label, which has a ton more exciting looking releases. What’s the Slovenian music scene like? Is there a Termite Club of Slovenian wonder behind this release? As well as being a superb album, Pelletron / Dynamitron raises so many questions, exactly the kind of questions I love to be confronted with. Thank you for opening another door Tanja.” / Graeme Murrell, Facebook, 4 November 2022
