Mark, they were supporting Faust at the QEH, mid-'90s. A friend of mine worked w/ Tilbury at Goldsmiths and said much the same thing as you.

i'm a bit slow; what does rfi mean? i love AMM, i think they're some of the most communicative of the free improv groups. My favourite lineup is the current one (are they still?) of Tilbury/Rowe/Prevost, and the CDs Allentown and From am Unknown Place are utterly fantastic. Do any of you people who have grown tired of them want to trade with me so i can fill in the gaps in my collection? i've got a sale list here and a wants list here.

rfi = "request for information"

rfi = Request For Information.

I saw AMM at a London college too (can't remember which) in 80s. Don't remember any arguments. I have AMM3's "It Had Been An Ordinary Enough Day In Pueblo Colorado" LP, which is mostly great. AMM3 = rock?

yeah & rfi means request for information, are you deaf or something.

twenty years pass...

They played what is likely to be their last gig.

Correction more ‘improvised/new music’ than free jazz and the 86 yr old pianist too frail to play. Combined age of 2 musicians 162 approx. Sublime stuff.

Words from Richard Williams about last night’s AMM performance at Cafe Oto. Their final one. https://t.co/jYEIejqRKb
