The Humans: The Live Shows Are Coming

October 20th, 2007

Numerous overseas websites are reporting on The Humans’ forthcoming gigs, taking place in Estonia next Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

THE HUMANS live show is song based but the songs are deconstructed down to the bones of raw experience exposing human nature and irony. Comparisons are always misleading but if The White Stripes met with the vocal adventures of Lou Reed, Kate Bush, Gabriel and Beefheart then you might get a flavour of things to come…

Toyah Willcox began her public life as a stage and television actress, but it is her musical activities that brought about her first real fame. In 1978 she founded the band Toyah. Her singing career took off with hits such as “I Want To Be Free” and “It’s A Mystery”. In 1983, she was voted Best Female Singer at the British Rock and Pop Awards and in 1986 she married avant-garde musician, Robert Fripp.

William “Bill” Rieflin is a contemporary musician and is currently drumming for R.E.M.. In the past he has worked with Ministry, the Revolting Cocks, KMFDM, Pigface, Swans, Chris Cornell, Nine Inch Nails and many others. He is one of the founders of the independent music label First World Music.

Chris Wong is a professional guitarist, bass guitarist, arranger, orchestrator, composer, and musical director. He has worked with artists such as Phil Watts, Mark Rattray, Rox Clayton Scott, and many others. Currently he is Toyah Willcox’s musical director and guitarist.

The most unusual concerts of Jazzkaar’s Autumn Jazz bring together rock musicians from the USA, UK and Germany – Toyah Willcox, Bill Rieflin and Chris Wong as The Humans and Pat Mastelotto and Markus Reuter as Tuner.
