Use Value is/was, the first ever guest to play Un-Herd. What you have here is a quartet that switches instruments depending on the motif for each tune. Somehow, a cross between pop and free jazz, more at post-punk post-jazz, Use Value is basically the pin point of the brink of progress, whether or not it makes any sense, that is what they do. Anyway, keep up with their next of kin project entitled, Dinner and the Main Course, because this is a troop that will pleasantly surprise you with each performance.
Alas we have arrived at Un | Herd Archive Episode number 13. This one includes two performances, the main show being that of an improvisational duet entitled, Deeds. And they are Brian Mumford on electric guitar and Un | Herd veteran, John Niekrasz on drums. The second portion of the show will be a 6 minute clip from one of my earliest programs featuring John again on drums and Seth Brown on Fender Rhodes piano, performing as Why I Must Be Careful. The prior goes back to November 23, 2009, and the latter goes back to November 24, 2008. I believe they were both debut performances; the prior was totally new and improvised; the latter was freshly composed. So please enjoy Deeds and Why I Must Be Careful.
