B F biography
BF(Beggars Farm)is one of the oldest and most influential groups of alternative jazzrock in Estonia.In the middle of the 90s they started out playing energetic bluesrock, gradually drawing closer to jazz and improvisation.By now BF is like a sensitive musical living organism, where each of the members plays a unique and vital part.The band's music may at first glance seem like free improvisation, but they tend surprise to surprise the listenerwith precise and powerful themes, which reveal the tension within the group.Over the years BF has used various instruments, including all sorts of objects like typewriters, electromagnetic devices etc.to try out different sounds, and collaborated with a long list of different musicians, artists, dancers and filmmakers.BF has released five albums, the latest of which, Klob, documents BF during 2007-2008, both in studio/lab environment -where the group is tight-knit and well-tempered, and on stage where free improvisation is used as a method to explore soundsproduced with old antiquities, tapes and tubes.BF in 2009 is Kalle Tikas - guitar, Heikki Tikas - bass, Margo Pajula - drums.

Review by Music By Mail

3 stars BF is the short name of Beggars Farm, an Estonian outfit not to be confused with the other of the same name. Kuumoon was supposed to be their third album but for different reasons, it never made it until it was released eight years after in 2008, at this point becoming their 5th album. Kuumoon is made of selected tracks sending us back to the year 2000 and a new century soon to emerge. What makes the album especially interesting is the line -up of this album; you will find alongside the founding duo of the Tikas brothers other musicians belonging today to other acknowledged and fine Estonian bands: drummer Madis Zilmer from Phlox, guitarist Tarvo Kaspar Toome, main composer of the Megan Quartet. There are here both studio and live tracks, reminiscences of early 70's Miles Davis and Soft Machine, especially in the keyboards sound, herewith paying tribute to Mike Ratledge's distorded sound conception but also at time its manually sequenced use of riff lines. This dirtyness of electric sound is also used at length by the guitarist, establishing therefore a strong 70's feel. The live tracks have a rather loose improvised character and may seem at times lengthy or directionless but the overall impression is a valid flow of ideas that will be able to transport the listener in various states of mind, from trippy journey to spacy free fall, all fueled by an energetic jazz-rock engine!
Thanks to alucard for the artist addition.
