Oorstof-SIM & Het Bos present THE THING 20.10.18
After Paal Nilssen-Love's Large Unit and Mats Gustafsson's Fire Orchestra it's time to go back to the basics with The Thing blowing yr mind with some scorching noisy avant-rock and punk jazz in support of their new album The Thing Again....

After forming in 1999 as a Don Cherry recording project, Scandinavian garage jazz trio The Thing soon established themselves as one of the most important European jazz groups, playing a variety of compositions, including material by PJ Harvey, Albert Ayler, The White Stripes, Steve Lacy, The Stooges, The Sonics, The Cramps, Lightning Bolt and The Ex. They transformed the music of these artists into a contemporary context, making it their own.

As individuals or as a group, they have collaborated with those including, Peter Brötzmann, Sonic Youth, Jim O’Rourke, Thurston Moore, David Grubbs, Eye, The Ex, Pat Metheny, Arto Lindsay, Steve Reid, Kieran Hebden, Merzbow, Christian Marclay, The Nomads, Guy Picciotto, Neneh Cherry and more, all activities fueling the music of The Thing to become what the group is all about.

The Thing tour was made possible with the support of: Arts Council Norway - Norsk Jazzforum - Music Norway
