Le attività di Oto Roku, volte a documentare in modo ufficiale alcune iniziative del benemerito Cafe Oto londinese, trovano sbocco e fonte di autofinanziamento in una vera e propria etichetta discografica, che curerà pubblicazioni in edizione artistica a tiratura limitata e la diffusione on-line di materiali audio e video di qualità. Un concerto di Peter Brötzmann, John Edwards e Steve Noble del gennaio 2010 - la loro prima uscita come trio - inaugura il catalogo in vinile: ...The Worse The Better, annunciato per il mese prossimo in concomitanza con un nuovo concerto del trio, è prenotabile già ora in http://otoroku.cafeoto.co.uk

We're thrilled to issue the first release on Cafe Oto's in-house label – OtoRoku. Available in a deluxe vinyl edition and a high quality download '...The Worse The Better' is a recording of the stunning first set performed by the trio of Peter Brötzmann, Steve Noble and John Edwards at Cafe Oto in January 2010 during Brötzmann's first residency at the venue. It was also the first time this trio had played together. The concert was recorded at Cafe Oto by Shane Browne, and mastered by Andrea Lubich at Dubplates & Mastering, Berlin. The vinyl edition comes with two colour silkscreened artwork by Peter Brötzmann printed on acid-free archival card stock and the vinyl (pressed on 180g virgin vinyl at Record Industry, The Netherlands) is housed in a two colour 300gsm Oto-Roku stock inner sleeve.
