Sheffield University altmusic soc/Small Ideas presents:
The French NLF3 (trio) have been together for a decade.The NLF espouse brevity as an art form, presnting a spangled sequence of continualy shifting miniatures. Detail is a virtue, the trio's personal toyscape infatuated with blips and blops, all things that chime, burble or ping, with pourring analogue textures running across what amounts to a conventional instrumental core.

"We create at night in a decaying unit of breeze blocks. We drink tea out of dirty mugs and wish that our hands were warmer. We have to fight daily with potted plants and lawnmowers to get to our instruments. Sometimes they attack us. We have scars. We have a sledgehammer - we smash up old washing machines. The skip is not our friend. We record in bedrooms. We are safe and warm there." - Double Handsome Dragons
Local Sheffield Band. Recently headlined the Sharrow Festival:
"Experimental dub jazz 4 piece with sax, come and get some gentle jazz in your face and then dig the tight flight into the wandering dimensions of a frenzied King Capisce. Funky break beat rhythms, dub riddims, jazzy dishevelled chords and freakin’ sax. D’Junderstand?" - King Mojo
