Legendary drummer and composer Charles Hayward is widely know as the founding member of This Heat, whose importance has had a lasting legacy on all things experimental on the independent scene. Since their split in 1982, drummer Charles Hayward has continually been at the forefront of experimental music, with stints in Crass, Bill Laswell's Massacre, his own Camberwell Now collective and a slew of art installation projects. The last few years have seen Hayward focusing on his solo work, which, upon listening, makes it abundantly clear that the innovation inherent in his formative years is still alive and well. A true pioneer in contemporary music, he combines a whirling dervish of mesmeric electronics, inventive percussion and otherworldly vocal collages in a sound that is still peerless and unclassifiable.
