The Just Not Cricket! Festival took place from 6 to 8 October 2011 at HBC (former Haus Ungarn) in Berlin-Mitte. On three consecutive days it presented a unique programme of concerts featuring some of the most influential players on the current British Improvised Music scene. Just Not Cricket! was curated by Antoine Prum in collaboration with British saxophonist Tony Bevan and Helma Schleif, long-time coordinator of the Total Music Meetings in Berlin. The concerts also marked the beginning of a documentary film on the history, past and present, of the British free improvised music scene. As part of this film (to be released in 2013), Just Not Cricket! has invited the acclaimed stand-up comedian and long-time supporter of improvised music Stewart Lee to chat with the musicians over the course of the festival.
In a cross-generational confirmation of the vibrancy and relevance of the music they pioneered, legendary figures such as Lol Coxhill, Phil Minton, Eddie Prévost and Trevor Watts played in never-before-heard combinations with their younger peers, including Rhodri Davies, Shabaka Hutchings, Matthew Bourne and Alex Ward.
A luxury box-set of 4 heavyweight 180g LPs is documenting the highlights of the festival with its unique line-up of 16 musicians from 4 different generations of British Improvisors.
