John Stevens

There are at least two artists named John Stevens: 1) John William Stevens (10 June 1940 in Brentford, Middlesex - 13 September 1994 in Ealing, West London) was an English drummer. He was one of the most significant figures in early free improvisation, and a founding member of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble (SME). Stevens was born in Brentford, the son of a tap dancer. He used to listen to jazz as a child, but was initially more interested in drawing and painting (mediums through which he expressed himself throughout his life).

Eric Chenaux

Eric Chenaux's songs wind up in all kinds of places and shape-shift from tender jazz standards to bossa to fried folk to meaninglessly romantic balladry. Sometimes these same songs are re-baked as modal tunes for guitar, banjo, drums, swinging speakers and wah-wah pedals (as they appear on Dull Lights) and become near-covers of themselves. In the 1980’s and 1990’s Chenaux played rhythmically demented half-riffs with hoary post-punk band Phleg Camp and later wrote songs with the guitar duo Lifelikeweeds.
