Perpetual Motion Machine is a six-piece group, recently selected as ambassadors
for Jazz North’s prestigious Northern Line scheme. Its members might be familiar to
audiences in the region, but the PMM project represents a bold departure for all
involved and the prospect of a live experience like no other.
With an unusual line-up of twin tenor saxophones, twin guitars, bass, and drums, the
Machine creates a cinemascope sound that surrounds the listener. The power of
PMM comes not from sheer volume, but from the breadth (stylistic and spatial) of its
sources. Rock, free-improvisation, spoken word, and bebop coexist in this exciting
new music, crafted by artists who embrace these traditions in all their variety and

Riley Stone-Lonergan, Ben Lowman – tenor saxophones, bass clarinet
Sam Dunn, Jamie Taylor – guitars
Garry Jackson – electric and acoustic basses
Steve Hanley - drums
