After the Serpent’s bite there's no turning back.
Mike Westbrook’s genre crossing score and Kate Westbrook’s libretto recounts with irony, humour and regret, the Fall of Humankind in a world hell–bent on its own destruction. This event launches their new album The Serpent Hit
and also includes a trio set by Kate Westbrook, Chris Biscoe (saxophone) and Mike Westbrook (piano).
"No one has succeeded in creating a more distinctive body of work than Mike and Kate Westbrook. Their mixture of jazz, music- theatre, poetry, street entertainment and visuals is rich and unique.” Dave Gelly, The Observer
The Serpent Hit
is out on Westbrook Records from mid September, produced by Jon Hiseman, distribution by Cadiz and supported by Airshaft Trust.
