Bang the Bore - irresponsible music made with abnormal instrumentations
Sunday 19th April
The Hobbit, Bevois Valley, Southampton
Bang the Bore is a brand new evening of experimental music that aims to unite the best underground local musicians with the most visionary, cracked and idiosyncratic headline acts we can get hold of.
Expect rare and exotic instruments in bizarre combinations; working methods that run the gamut from painstaking to totally free and spontaneous; and a surplus of energy and ideas.
The line-up for the first event:
Signed to Portishead's Invada label and hand picked for their All Tomorrow's Parties line-up, this unpredictable Bristol-based performer has been known to mix gabba freak-outs, improvised hymns, off-the-cuff free folk, throat singing and squalling walls of distortion... often in the space of five minutes
Gavotte & Bow
Southampton-based improvised rock duo featuring Aaron from The Pony Remark and Seth from Defibrillators/Hunting Lodge. Think Led Zep multiplied by Lightning Bolt or My Bloody Valentine torn into bloody chunks by Ruins. Now with drills.
Hopefully, utter bloody stupidity....Infamous in brighton for performing the quietest noise set ever.
Echo pedals and distortion manhandled into slap-in-the-face bursts of noise and spaced out oscillations. Tense and eerie, with something horribly Other perpetually threatening to enter the frame.
Ni Dieux Ni Maitre
Oli, Izaak and Angus carefully construct, break apart and rebuild lonesome guitar and electronic textures via tape looping, delays, mutual reprocessing and a transfigured Buddha machine.
Quamvis Sum Parva
This Winchester based partnership fill the stage with singing bowls and gongs to produce thickly textured feedback drones punctuated with scrapes and chimes from their metal percussion.
it says free entry, but bring donations you fucking cheapskates
Much needed in Southampton.
I'll be coming to this hopefully and hope it becomes a regular night.
I'll be coming from the IOW.
