Percy Howard is a singer and a song writer who over the years
has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music
world. The project named Meridiem was formed in 1997 when
Percy invited Bill Laswell to work with him along with drummer
Charles Hayward who had previously been a member of This
Heat. Bill Laswell of course has worked with many artists
including, Daevid Allen and New York Gong, Herbie Hancock
and perhaps most famously Brian Eno and David Byrne on
their album My Life In The Bush of Ghosts.
The album Full Catastrophe was originally released in 2000
and features the talents of founder Percy Howard alongside such
stellar musicians as Living Color’s Vernon Reid and King
Crimson’s Trey Gunn. Following in the steps of previous
Meridiem releases Full Catastrophe manages to blend full
on musicianship with structured cacophony. Unavailable for
some time this release will be a welcome re issue.
