about

A Raw, Powerful Trio Album with Legendary Bill Laswell on Bass, Thomas Pridgen on Drums & Mike Sopko on Guitar

With Guests Martin Dosh, Hamir Atwal,
Michael Lewis (Happy Apple), Joshua Smith (Birth)

Guitarist Mike Sopko, a fixture in the Bay Area who’s just returned to his native Cleveland, is proud to announce the release of Sopko-Laswell-Pridgen. This ferocious studio document captures Sopko’s rapport with drummer Thomas Pridgen (formerly of The Mars Volta) and bassist Bill Laswell, a musical hero to many including Sopko himself. Balancing free improvisation, collective composition and inventive post-production, the trio encounter proves to be as uninhibited and rhythmically charged as it is focused and refined. A second album, culled from the same sessions, is already in the wings.
