Dann Chinn reblogged this on Misfit City and commented:

If you're free and easy in London tonight - and fancy an evening of intriguing piano music - try this. In spite of some of the more ominous language used in the Subba-Cultcha review, Bill's music is as full of light, flight and green-leafed freshness as it is of strange chords and left-field turns. Fans of post-modernist dissonance, polystylism and mongrel English romanticism will all be well satisfied. As a bonus, you get extra listening pleasure via James Larcombe (of Stars In Battledress and Arch Garrison) fingering one of his collection of tuneful antiques.
