Happy New Years!
(this year, everything is possible)
Here is a track from some things I was testing the other day, maybe it will sound good after some champagne:
I have two shows coming up in Leeds this month, and they are both in the same place, my favorite venue there too. They both have a lot of music projects I am very excited to see live! I will not play the same things either.
text from Cops and Robbers:
Saturday January 10th
Wharf Chambers, 23-25 Wharf Street, Leeds
A Cops and Robbers benefit with…
Leeds’ lasses and lad bring up some good-times experimental punk in a Beefheart/Minutemen vein. Their catchy song chunks skewered on esoteric time signatures, bass fuzz blowouts and whacked-out song structures.
Core of the Coalman
From the US via Prague and now Huddersfield, Jorge Boehringer‘s solo project spans the poles of electro-acoustic composition and psychedelic noise. Expect searing viola drones, rhythmic loopings and maybe some ring-modulated insect sounds if you’re lucky.
West Yorks young ‘uns blasting out weird punk/noisy hardcore with extra echo and occasional trumpet.
Slo mo keyboard and electronics levitating down from Newcastle. Featuring members of Lobster Priest.
Country twang put through the sludge-punk mangler, featuring members of No Guts, Broken Arm and Cleckhuddersfax.
Bands followed by records till the wee hours.
