DIY SPACE FOR LONDON. SATURDAY 19th MAY. DOORS: 6.30 PM :: £6 ADV :: £8 OTD
Cute Owl and HARMERGEDDON presents a beautiful night of eclectic experimental music with anarchistic undertones featuring politically relevant acts who utilize a plethora of musical instruments, visuals, effect combinations and musical disciplines.
Glaswegian art rocker Kapil Seshasayee is set to cause waves in the experimental music scene with his new single A Sacred Bore, out now on Liverpool based label Loner Noise.
Kapil Seshasayee is a polymath, and a true original talent, both as a songwriter and as a soundsmith, a one man combination of Scott Walker, Mark Hollis, Bjork, and Richard Dawson, creating something wholly unique. Combining Big Black style drum machine beats with thundering baritone guitar, stunning vocals and a penchant for unorthodox instrumentation such as the aquaphone, Kapil manages to be truly experimental yet still accessible.
Having performed across the UK with a raft of great and innovative acts such as Victor Villarreal, Blacklisters, USA Nails, Screaming Females and Carla Bozulich, Kapil has developed a reputation as an engrossing and engaging live performer, producing his stunning arrangements alone with a variety of instruments and tools at his disposal.
A Sacred Bore will be the lead single from his forthcoming debut album of the same title, a concept album based around India’s caste system and a piercing examination of the abusive treatment toward lower castes, aiming to raise awareness of countless barbaric practises still prevalent among South Asian communities in diaspora.
“Between Math Rock, Drum-Machine driven Punk, and Experimental Pop” – THE QUIETUS
Harmergeddon is Nathan and Fae Harmer, London based a/v performance art duo formed in 2010. From the unwanted, unheard and unseen they create instruments, installations, sound pieces and visuals improvised as a feedback loop between gesture and combined consciousness. Consumed electronics, kinetic pulse, drifting texture, undulating drone, amber cloud, alternating current, corrosive rain, dots behind the eyes, light becomes sound, rebuilt from the ground up with whatever comes to hand.
Stunning lead hurdy-gurdy with effect pedals, fierce yet tender vocals, personal political lyrics with themes of Intersectionality, mental health and life as a migrant, floaty whistles, massive drone bass & field recordings seamlessly combine with industrial-techno beats in an utterly captivating show.
After forming in Ukraine in 2008, where this non binary duo toured extensively drawing crowds of several hundred, they went on to tour further afield in Russia and later UK. Now tAngerinecAt are based in London.
‘…this is some of the most powerful music I have heard in a long time, and holds a message too… difficult to believe there were only two musicians on stage.’ – LOUDER THAN WAR
“tAngerinecAt’s brought not just synth to the table, but a whole range of physical, classical instruments into the mix – most noticeably their use of the hurdy-gurdy, to make their music the deep notes of severe doom and dread that gave it the feeling of a rave in a mausoleum.” – LEFTLION
Pranic Attack subconsciously stems from a genetically hybridised human-insectoid combination and ever evolving audiovisual experiment composed of Janine A’Bear and Steven McInerney (Merkaba Macabre). Existing outside of the hive mind, the duo bring forth a giant life force swarm of sonic, non-newtonian synthesis concocted via live modular and experimental vocal electronics. Continually shedding new skins, Pranic Attack delivers a cacophonous cocoon of stroboscopic ear worm sequences synced with critter-like projections to feast upon and metamorphose to.
Solution Hours are a two-piece band from London, UK. The band use spoken word and poetry techniques combined with a careful mix of both subtle and discordant guitar work to tackle a myriad of subjects from health to street harassment, glued together with dynamic drumming and ambient background noise including sustained tones and samples.
“It has quite a claustrophobic atmosphere at times, filling in all the gaps, not really letting things settle or rest.” – Collective Zine
Flange Zoo are masses of cosmic energy distilled into three mythical creatures. They play multi-effects, monotrons, stylophones, recorders, mini-theremin, a hand-designed ‘Tube-Fox’ Didgeridoo and other amplified interferences.
Their soundscapes and lyrics are influenced variously by H. P. Lovecraft’s stories, Ovid’s Metamorphosis and Douglas Adam’s Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, and by the impending socio-ecological destruction of this tiny blue sphere through human means.
Songs of cosmosmyths, evil political creatures, and the end of human existence, plus more.
