Care in the community recordings presents @ THE SHACKLEWELL ARMS THURSDAY 19TH DEC   Leave a comment

Playing at this next week, as you can see.

Some explanations here of sorts:

Mucky Sailor : Relentless, distorted and deranged prog-rhythm-rock duo of drums and large keyboard array that includes a bespoke ships wheel oscillator. Phenomenological.

Ergo Phizmiz: “Hailed in some quarters as the missing link between Viv Stanshall and Robert Wyatt”(Uncut) the song-writer,composer and performer opened the year with the album Eleven Songs (Loud and Quiet record of the week ) and his crazed music theatre piece Gargantua touring the UK and Europe .Both were loving detailed in a four page feature in The Wire. Ergo continued his year in typically prolific style with an opera commission from Trinity Laban and Tete-a-Tete, music for a Channel 4 animation series ,started a movie soundtrack and has just begun a residency with the Opera Group. Ergo will perform either solo or with his three or four piece band with music from Eleven Songs and his forthcoming LP The Peacock.

Pete Um: A master of the miniature electro-acoustic song-poem, a form he has more or less invented and crystallised himself, his work displays a sardonic wit combined with a healthy misanthropy in micro-collages of voice, instruments, samples, and electronics.

Sasha Ilyukevich: London-based Belarusian Sasha Ilyukevich sings in Russian, his lyrics play on images from Eastern Slavic Folklore and Russian Literature. His vocals swoop from soft whispered melodies to raucous screams creating what he calls ‘Belarusian Rock ’n’ Roll’. Sasha will be joined on keyboard by composer Dave Maric (The Steve Martland Band).

Thursday 19th December at The Shacklewell Arms.  8-11pm.
