From http://www.wereallneighbours.co.uk:
A Hawk And A Hacksaw is the latest in a long line of incarnations for
Jeremy Barnes, who may be best known as the drummer for Neutral Milk Hotel, but who has also carried the idea of avant-garde percussion and improvisation to new amicable highs with Bablicon, and has worked with numerous artists including: Bright Eyes, Guignol, The Gerbils, and most recently, Broadcast.

Musically, A Hawk And A Hacksaw is, if anything, difficult to pin down.
Incorporating accordions, harps, ouds, Turkish cumbus, and jaw harps
Barnes drops an impassioned bomb on traditional structures, mines
feverishly through the wreckage and reassembles pieces with the attentive care given to holy relics. Drawing on influences as diverse as Eastern European folk music to Pierre Schaeffer to Spike Jones & his City Slickers, there.s a healthy disregard for boundaries at play. Importantly, everything retains harmonic balance; AHAAH doesn.t break from musical history as much as sing its essential values in wholly new forms. With such a heady mix of styles on display in the music, it is of little surprise that A Hawk And A Hacksaw.s live show is a force to be reckoned with. The show displays Barnes. multi-instrumentalist virtuosity in all it glory, with him playing accordion, vocals and percussion (simultaneously!) accompanied by Heather Trost on violin, glockenspiel and melodica. It's a musical journey across the most varied of terrain, that dips in and out of modern composition and American and Eastern European folk traditions in Barnes. own inimitable style.
