VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA Legendary Leeds astral-travellin’ supergroup - kaleidoscopic drones and enveloping psychedelia wielded with maximum shimmer for deep brain saturation! ALAN WILKINSON & PAUL HESSION Fearsome sax and drums from two heavyweights of the UK’s free music scene. Rare chance to see this duo in action. WIDT Warsaw based sisters on an immersive voyage in pure form for voice and analogue video feedback. Electronics and effects sculpt abstract, otherworldly vocals alongside melting, searching visuals. GUTTERSNIPE & HERB DIAMANTE Unholy debut collaboration between cracked lounge crooner HD and Leeds’ abject rock wraiths. APOSTILLE Hyperkinetic performances and electronic pop detonations from Glasgow based Night School Records honcho Michael Kasparis. SECLUDED BRONTE Adam Bohman and Richard Thomas mix up absurdist theatre and music concrete, bizarro sketches, dislocated texts and a tableful of noise making apparatus and flea-market detritus. FCKN’BSTRDS Trash noise freak-outs, giant garbage suits and fullest frontal lunatic theatrics from the Netherlands. YEAH YOU Newcastle father & daughter duo improvising mutant pop forms and experimental electronics with effects garbled voice and mangled drum machine/synth rhythms. MIK QUANTIUS Beefheartian gurgl-ing and screeching atop fragments of demented disco-psych and scrying mirror synth meditations from MQ, vocalist in Krautrock legends Embryo. PICORE Zaragoza/Brighton based experimental rock quintet delivering incredibly detailed, deformed songs to reorganise your cerebrum and make your body move around in a weird and very good way. ROMAN NOSE Whirlwind crashing, howling group improvisations and mesmeric other-world musics from Jon Marshall, Sarah McWatt, Charlie Collins and Otto Willberg. SWEAT TONGUE Rotterdam quartet creating a fractured, warped take on the group sound. No wave rock that crawls though the gutter and up the trouser leg. BONGOLEEROS Demented Primitivist troubadours twang and bang their way through the lowest form of rockabilly, filthy chants and riotous ceremonies - teetering on that sinister/ludicrous borderline.
