Press release:

Riki Gooch and Jeff Henderson are embarking on a North Island tour to coincide with the release of a double album of saxophone/clarinet and drum duets on iiii Records.

The pair have along history of music making together and have collaborated on numerous projects including the minimal drone trio ‘The Metabolists’ with David Long (The Muttonbirds), Riki’s behemoth ensemble ‘Eru Dangerspiel’, wild psych/blues unit ‘Superstarz’, faux ethno-futurist quartet ‘The Slowdown’ (with Parks and Chris O’Connor) and numerous other adventurous music groups.

Both musicians grew up in Dunedin and met in Wellington during the creatively fertile ‘90’s through studies at the Conservatorium of Music. After over twenty years of collaborating and musical exploration the duo have a telepathic intuitive communication which they will share throughout the North Island this March/April.
