Listen to No More Shapes at:

Creesus Crisis is the first full length recording by Calgary based trio NoMoreShapes, featuring Jay Crocker on guitar & electronics, J.C. Jones on trombone and Eric Hamelin on drums & percussion. NoMoreShapes was formed in 2007 through a series of early Bug Incision ( gigs and from tapes filled with seemingly unremarkable, sweaty keyboard & drum riffs (written & recorded by Eric Hamelin). These disparate motifs would turn out to be the starting point for the trio's music and within the year enough material for an album was developed.

Creesus Crisis explores territories such as small sound electronic improvisations to full on Ornette-ish like free bop, drawing from musical sources such as rock , pop, folk, jazz, free improvisation and noise. NoMoreShapes have previously shared bills with the Cowboy Junkies, ZMF trio (Jesse Zubot, Jean Martin, Joe Fonda), Copilots, Joe Sorbara, Josh Zubot, Chad VanGaalen and more. Live shows include original compositions and arrangements from such sources as Black Sabbath, Thelonius Monk and Steve Lacy.

Aside from his main gig as Chad VanGaalen’s drummer, Eric Hamelin has had the opportunity to collaborate with the Josh Zubot, Copilots, Jesse Zubot, Simon Fisk, Pierre-Yves Martel, Tania Gill, Lina Allemano, Chris Dadge, Darren Williams, Dave Chokroun and many more.

Jay Crocker produces his own solo pop and improv recordings, and has produced a hand full of albums for various bands and singer songwriters. Jay is also a member of the band Ghostkeeper (out on Flemish Eye). Crocker has shared the stage with Eric Chenaux, the Akron family and many others and is also a staple in the Calgary improv and noise scene.

J.C. Jones has played/recorded with a host of wide-ranging acts such as Ryan Bourne to Chamber Graffiti and has also recently been featured as a harpist/vocalist on a Smithsonian compilation documenting Welsh folk music.

"It's a gas!" - Foxy Digitalis

"With all the energy of the three players bundled, the players move very decisively towards their target." - Vital Weekly
