Beak>, or close encounters of the third kind between Portishead sound-maker Geoff Barrow, Matt Williams (keyboard player with Team Bricks) and Bill Fuller (bass player with Fuzz Against Junk), have opened up a unique pathway in the world of experimental noise music. They have produced a mixture of the krautrock of Can, the icy metronomics of coldwave, to a background of dissonances, obsessive accidental sonorities and noisy dub. The result, fraught with tensions, filed with ramblings and crashes, is mind-blowing and marks the birth of some very free, tribal and savage music that is both fascinating and disturbing.
