Crushing Death & Grief formalise the arrangement of:
REIGNS + FUZZY LIGHTS + BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI
Tue 10th March @ The Portland Arms, Cambridge
Operatives A & B began recording for the Reigns organisation in 2002. Their first album, “We Lowered a Microphone into the Ground”, was a series of recordings made within a seemingly bottomless hole found upon the Somerset Downs. Their follow-up, “Styne Vallis”, was recorded in and around a submerged village that had been evacuated and strategically flooded in 1970 to make way for a new reservoir. “The House on the Causeway” is their soon-to-be-released third long player, a distressing documentation of a uninhabited, fog-bound house found at the end of a man-made promontory between Black Ven and Golden Cap. A selection of findings will be presented in the live format.
Cambridge's Fuzzy Lights create haunted, visceral music that pulls and tugs at its moorings. Hard to pigeonhole as they combine both folk purity and psychedelic guitar noise with echoes of more traditional blues/Americana, their reverb-soaked, semi-improvised music is now collected on their debut album "A Distant Voice". Usually a five-piece, tonight the band strip back to their original duo set-up.
BLUE SABBATH BLACK FIJI
A couple of Parisian weirdos relocated to Glasgow making totally positive, blithesome scratchy noise. Great vibes abound, channelled through guitar blizzards and bucolic electronic washes.
