"Rutherford was the guiding spirit behind Iskra 1903 and even if he had not recorded another note, this fact alone would place him at the very heart of British improvisation since 1970. The early performances documented on CHAPTER ONE are typical of the group's highly concentrated output. More intensely focused and, residually at least, more jazz-inflected than either AMM or the more radical excursions of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, Iskra 1903 represent a wonderfully challenging auditory experience. So densely interwoven are the lines and so convincingly vocalised is Rutherford's tone that one almost feels one is listening to a passionate discourse. The sound is mostly very clear and faithful, though there are a couple of tracks which sound muddied and uncertain." - RICHARD COOK and/or BRIAN MORTON - 'The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD' 2006
