Mats Gustafsson Nu Ensemble
"“The NU ensemble is back again! After some years of contemplation, recharging and reforming. In attack mode… in poetry mode… in love mode. A forever-changing beast. From the first installment of the ensemble back in the early 90’s, this ensemble has always been about the now, the instant now. NU. How to deal with and combine both freely improvised music and compositional methods and ideas. In the moment. Nothing radically new in that, but a very important process with lots of new perspectives to explore and joy to be shared!” Mats Gustafsson, from the liner notes"
History Is What's Happening
"Musically, they sound like a rather more melodic version of Crass; politically, they are a lot harder and their lyrics are excellent... An unashamed political manifesto."
