Monkey Puzzle Trio features This Heat lynchpin Charles Hayward on drums, keys and melodica, bassist Nick Doyne-Ditmas and the words, voice and textures of avant-vocalist Viv Corringham, whose music walks a tightrope between song, improvisation and sound-as-sound.
"Their second album 'The Pattern Familiar' is an improvised song cycle that pushes the very notion of the song to the extreme. Hayward hooks into motorik rhythms that are relaxed yet deliberate and Nick Doyne-Ditmas lays out reverberant, drifting moans, with overdubbed horns hinting at structure, over which Corringham's pursues a range of techniques, from cool Brion Gysin-esque wordplay to looped and multilayered operatic wails." [The Wire]

Mixmag described Roshi as "One of the most singular voices working at the moment”.
