Poisonous Frequencies: Torschlusspanik

Poisonous Frequencies is a sort of power trio, unexpectedly formed in 2015. Federsel, Petr Vrba and Didi Kern go berserk mixing rock, noise and free improvisation. 
Petr Vrba is discovering the possibilities of electrified trumpet, disguised as electric guitar and Tomislav Federsel is continuing in his search for the most awful electric guitar sound. Didi Kern beats the drum.

Their debut album recorded live in Studio Jámor, Prague is just being released by Czech-Finnish label Meteorismo in limited series of 100 vinyls.

"This free improvisation by all means goes far from the jazz idioms and non-idioms and has its roots in the rock music stripped of all of its clichés."
Petr Slabý, UNI
