Oh golly gosh. A true exponent of 'everything is possible' comes to Bristol. Erratic is not the word for his amazing career. Born in North Carolina in 1954, he has drawn from Dada, improv, country music, folk art, sound collage and a kaleidoscope of rock and jazz guitar techniques as well as from the chaotic structures of Charles Ives to make his cult brand of funnily experimental and queerly awesome music.
John Zorn, Fred Frith, Camper Van Beethoven and the voice of Charles Manson all feature in his long line of collaborators. EC has a punk irreverence to categorisation, and tonight he might (!) play with a pick-up band, electric rake, prepared piano or household toys. His music, imagination and life is boundless.
