The title Peck and Fleet refers to two of London’s many ‘lost rivers’ that used to
traverse the area until the city sprawl covered them over and hid them away.
The album itself is a London story, recorded at the legendary Dave Hunt Studio
in the West of the City, by three long-term residents John Edwards, Andrew
Lisle, and Colin Webster – plus a regular visitor, Dirk Serries.
Serries, Webster, and Lisle are no strangers to each other having worked
together prolifically for the last six years, most notably in Kodian Trio. On Peck
and Fleet however, the three are joined by one of the most pivotal figures in
improvised music – John Edwards.
Musically, the quartet play fully acoustic, and with Lisle playing a minimal
percussion set-up. The stripped-back instrumentation allows for a focus on
texture and timbre, but doesn’t prevent moments of ferociousness either.
Peck and Fleet is reminiscent of many albums from the formative ‘golden-era’ of
improvised music, with the undeniable stamp of personality from these ‘modernera’ musicians
