Liana Flu Winks is a Rotterdam-based Scottish/Swiss/Dutch trio that started performing in 2001 Differing musical backgrounds & influences combine tocreate an eclectic confluence of sonic situations.
Bassist/’cellist/organist Nina Hitz also plays in the modern ensembles ‘The Barton Workshop’ (based in the Netherlands) & ‘Daswirdas’ (Switzerland),whose repertoire includes works by John Cage & Morton Feldman. In her sparetime she has been known to cavort in the world of the baroque chick.
Drummer/multi instrumentalist Wilf Plum hit most of his beats in the ‘DogFaced Hermans’ & since their demise he has played with ‘De Kift’, ‘RhythmActivism’, Hendrik-Jan de Stuntman & ‘Donkey’. He is currently busy with the ‘Ex Orchestra’ & ‘Runt’ as well as LFW. Lukas Simonis, sometime guitarist, is a valued force (he thinks) in the electronic masquerade ‘Coolhaven’. Previously he twanged his strings with Trespassers W & Dull Schicksal. The sum total of the groaning weight of all this history results in bewildering, easily digestible yet intrinsically heavyweight music. Somewhere in the developed but abandoned area where Postrock tussles with Easy Listening. There we must search.
This CDr was their first attempt. The songs are good but the sound is a bit lo-fi.
