This is one of the reasons I like Mr Wastell. Leave the music to one side and he's just a common-or-garden Laaadhnaner who's well into the Who and the Jam.
Mr & Bowels is right though - there's a lot of piety to London improv, very little thinking outside the post-postmodernist, neo-reductionist box. I've got a Seymour Wright album - lovely packaging, has Ami Yoshida on it, but it's utter guff. And don't get me started on Taku 'I am the epitome of convoluted agenda' Sugimoto or Radu 'twatty rhetoric' Malfatti. Mattin can fuck off as well.
