Writ­ten and Directed by Neil Luck

New squib-box release: Songs from Badly-Lit Rooms

squib-box are proud to present Songs from Badly-Lit Rooms. This col­lec­tion of impro­vi­sa­tions, recorded over 2011 and 2012, are the result of a long­stand­ing musi­cal part­ner­ship between squib-artists Tom Jack­son and Bene­dict Taylor.

Part wild and unbri­dled, part del­i­cate and poised, these remark­able per­for­mances cap­ture a par­tic­u­larly intu­itive and inti­mate dia­logue between two active mem­bers of the free improv scene.
