Othin Spake

Teun Verbruggen: Drums
Mauro Pawlowski: Guitar
Jozef Dumoulin: Fender Rhodes

In March 2005 drummer Teun Verbruggen invited the eccentric guitar player Mauro Pawlowski (dEUS, Somnambula) and piano-Rhodes wizard Jozef Dumoulin (Mäâk Spirit, Magic Malik, Octurn…) to play a single session based on pure improvisation. The result left most people wondering how to categorize what they had just heard and landed them gigs in Jazz Middelheim, the Petrol and the Flanders Jazz Meeting during which Othin Spake was the most controversial band causing a debate whether this was Jazz at all. Two years later the band have played at many Jazz venues both in Belgium and abroad, released the Ankh, the first CD of a trilogy and invited bass legend Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantomâs, John Zorn) and New York harpist extraordinaire Shelley Burgon to play a series of concerts and record the second cd which will be released in 2008.
