[Beesweb] Richard Thompson News - March/April 2013, Part I
3/26/2013 (updated 3/26/2013)
"Richard Thompson keeps finding new ways to do the same old things - songs that are funny, dark, twisted, full of heart, surprising, and there’s a joyousness/joyfulness in the playing. There’s still the defiance, still the energy, still the attack - but it all at once sounds classic/vintage and brand new. " - Simon Sweetman, Off The Tracks

"When Thompson plays his guitar, he creates the illusion that at least four hands, maybe six, are working the strings. There is no better way to experience his playing than in the trio format, with Jerome and Prodaniuk carving up the rhythm and giving Thompson room to sail over the top, sometimes locking in with hard-rock riffs, sometimes compressing space with clusters of notes imported from the East, sometimes playing melody off against dissonance tag-team style up and down the fret board." - Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune
