As ever, it is turning out to be an extremely busy year for the many sideprojects surrounding The Notwist with new albums by Console as well as 13&God on their own Alien Transistor label.
[audio:xxx-xxx.mp3]Now following the release of their new record La Place Demon, on Morr the Tied & Tickled Trio make a very welcome Berlin live appearance together with legendary jazz drummer Billy Hart with whom they colaborated on said album.
Tied & Tickled Trio is a German electronica/dub/jazz musical collective. It was founded in 1994 by Markus Acher and Christoph Brandner in Weilheim, Bavaria as a polyrythmic duo playing drums only. After the joining of sculptor Andreas Gerth (electronics) and Markus’ brother Micha (bass), the core of “Tied & Tickled Trio” was formed and their style had become turning to the jazz. This trend later was fixed with new member coming – Johannes Enders, a studied jazz sax player.

The Tied & Tickled Trio play jazz music from an indie perspective and so are by definition not afraid of contact. Its amazing that a project which practically has a new approach for every composition can still have a unified sound. And the guys from Weilheim have an instantly recognisable sound – regardless whether their playing crazy free jazz, static drones or complex patterns. The collective shares members with The Notwist, Lali Puna and other bands from the Morr Music label.
For their latest album La Place Demon, theyve teamed up with acclaimed jazz drummer Billy Hart. The drummer Billy Hart is among one of the most accomplished contemporary jazz drummers in the world. Along with his recordings as band leader Hart, who celebrated his 70th birthday in 2010, can be heard drumming on more than 600 albums. Among other groups he was a long running member of the Herbie Hancock and Stan Getz bands.
