Fred Frith and Bob Ostertag have been working together since 1979. Frith plays on Ostertag’s first LP, Getting a Head (1980), Voice of America (1982), Attention Span (1990), Sooner or Later (1992), and on the recent release of Bob Ostertag Plays the Serge! 1978-1983 (2014).
In the 1990s, Ostertag toured with Frith’s “Keep the Dog” ensemble, and plays on that group’s live CD, That House We Lived In (2003).
After a long hiatus, Frith and Ostertag are performing together again, with their first recent show in Valdivia, Chile, in March 2016.
