After having presented SOUFIFEX at Moers Festival in May and at Houtfestival in June, Spinifex will take the project to Czech Republic and Germany this week. The reviews of the première at Moers were enthusiastic!s
"A splashing finish of the most impressive festival day we had in a long time... a band of extreme contrasts which moves freely at one moment, only to abruptly and mercilessly strike with ultratight interplay the next moment... Spinifex compositions are ingenious constructs that are moulded like clay, only in their case it's C-4." Guy Peters, enola.be
"Another concert to remember was Spinifex ... speedy noise-jazz with punk attidude played with razor-sharp accuracy ... no volume for volume's sake but a compact formula, meticulously mapped out according to the comprehensively thought through Spinifex procdure ..." Georges Tonla Briquet, jazzenzo
"Suddenly people are having a party with the challenging Spinifex sounds..." Ruhrbarone
"Spinifex, free and fresh improvisation with influences from diverse cultures" Endoplast.de
At the end of October, Spinifex will record the new SOUFIFEX CD, to be released in December. The CD will include pieces composed by Tobias Klein, Gonçalo Almeida and Jasper Stadhouders especially for SOUFIFEX, and it'll be presented with a concert on 18 January 2019 at the Bimhuis.
