DIRECTING HAND (Alex Neilson of Will Oldham, Ali Roberts etc plays solo/vox set) Sun 27 Aug (afterno
Miles of Smiles presents...
Sunday 27 August (afternoon show)
Glaswegian Alex Neilson (Will Oldham, Ali Roberts, et al) works his way through the traditional songbook with nothing but a clutch of bells, a theremin and a well of black reverb.
Hallucinatory mile-high Danelectro guitar dilations and intuited phantom landscapes from this always-electrifying New Zealander.
Born-again Glaswegian maps beautiful hypnotic tones and forests of acoustic string.

'Volcanic Tongue’s own free form drummer, avant thinker and liberated folk spirit Alex Neilson has been working inspired and often supremely dislocated readings of traditional folk material deep into the atomics of his profoundly handmade conceptions for years now. Tearing devotional eastern European songs to formally-fucked shreds as a member of Glasgow’s Scatter, drumming with Ali Roberts, baking English folk forms in a fug of F/X with Richard Youngs and most recently working his way through the traditional songbook with nothing but a clutch of bells, a theremin and a well of black reverb under the guise of Directing Hand...'
