Wild Combination.

A new DVD titled "Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell" drops on 3rd November following a rather splendid sounding launch at the ICA Bar in London with a Russell inspired DJ set from Optimos Twitch. The film is a portait of the avant jazz/disco superstar who died from AIDS in 1992 and contains rare archival footage and commentary from Arthur's family and friends.

    Arthur Russel looks like he suffers from Bill Murray cheek syndrome. -no that's not a made-up condition.

    Mmmmmm, I like a bit of cello action. This triggered memories of Faze Action's 'In The Trees', which uses cello to great effect.
