At the Wall To Wall Festival, Abergavenny, 2019


From Wales Arts Review:

Nick Kašal appeared with his Guerillasound Quartet of himself, [Alex] Goodyear, violinist Richard Jones (more Welsh connections) and the stupendous Swiss guitarist Nicolas Meier. On paper it might have looked unpromising but it was a festival highlight, essaying lamentation (a Kašal original called ‘Absent Not Gone’) as well as some late Meier shredding and lots more. Vocalist Sarah Meek joined the band with two beautifully laconic-ironic charts, her version of ‘I’m Confessin” transforming its honeyed sentiment into something more bitter. There are always several ways of interpreting a song. Originality and interplay were paramount, the two amped melodic instruments up front giving incisive bite within a self-imposed restraint.

Goodyear also appeared as part of bassist Nick Kašal’s Guerillasound concept, here manifesting itself as a quartet with electrics up front in the shape of guitarist Nicolas Meier and violinist Richard Jones. On paper it might have looked unpromising but it was a festival humdinger, essaying lamentation (a Kašal original called Absent Not Gone) as well as some late Meier shredding and lots more. Second surprise: vocalist Sarah Meek joined the band with two beautifully laconic-ironic charts



"EST-style trio mixing electronics with a penchant for rock and funk sounds"
