It’s a curious thing to be automatically given time off to observe a religious celebration despite not following the faith. I propose that the “Easter holidays” be renamed to something more inclusive of everyone’s beliefs such as ‘Citizens of the world, have a bit of time off’ but I suppose that’s not as catchy. How should we rename the “Christmas” period?
So on that day called Easter Sunday I’m playing a gig in Leeds at Wharf Chambers. The line up looks good and long. Read about it below and hope to see you there:
Easter Sunday all day noisy weirdo doings.
===Arma Agharta=== (Lithuania)
Dada sound artist working with synths, electronics, vocals, and ritual performance, his giddy set last year at W/C was an absurd treat!
===Tasos Stamou=== (Greece/London)
“arrangements with self-modified electronics (circuit bending) and found objects, electronic music equipment (modular synthesizers & computer applications), acoustic instruments (prepared zither, reeds, whistles, vocals, etc) and video synthesizers”
(Tasos and Arma will also be performing a set as a duo)
Ghostly and enchanting folk songs draped in drone, noise and psych for maximum glow and woozy heartache.
===Tor Invocation Band===
Revolving door local improvising super-group revolving around Jake Blanchard and his Japan Banjo. This time joined by Chris Hladowski (Family Elan), Pete Turner, Andrew Jarvis (United Bible Studies), Sam Mcloughlin and the inimitable Joincey.
Leeds weirdo lifers always a thrill. Recent (amazing) recordings have dipped toes in the direction of bizarre 80’s digital dub but maintaining plenty of that levitational psych choogle you love so much.
Recent Brighton to Calder valley transplant Rowan Forestier uses field recording, home-made instruments and tape. “Emerging from a netherworld of spectral radio phonics and atmospheric ambience, her off-kilter symphonies of haunted rapture and discordant dreamscapes are a glimpse into a kingdom of unsettling beauty and a monocle for the third eye.”
Pete Cann and Paul Walsh hose you down with jets of hyperdetailed hyperdynamic err… hypersound? “Cacophonous whirring n’ surging of vast hideous insectoid factories grinding with assemblies of violent morphogenesis.”
===Marlo & Mel===
Mystery junk heap happenings with local/international heroes Marlo Eggplant and Mel O’Duhbslaine.
Noise / ambient / droney sections / harsh things
