The ever creative Dominic Lash Quartet presenting their latest album ‘Extremophile’
Contrabassist Dominic Lash is one of the leading figures on the UK/European new music scene. Since emerging from the Oxford Improvisers collective, Lash’s musical career has seen him evolve into one of the UK’s most prolific and acclaimed musicians, having performed with legendary names such as Evan Parker, Tony Conrad and Tony Buck (the Necks).

"Lash is a bassist and bandleader of distinction, and this album from his Anglo-Spanish quartet is one of his most impressive projects to date." Stewart Smith (The Quietus)
"Extremophile is an adventurous album that manages to walk the line between improvisation and composition, producing an album with just enough form for your ear to lock onto and just enough freedom to keep your ears and your mind interested." David Menestres (Free Jazz Collective)
