Using free improvisation as a starting point Lost Robots' range from an off-kilter take on driving rock music through to more delicate and lengthy explorations of form and texture. Lost Robots use voices, electronics, clarinet, banjo, melodeon, electric guitar, bass, acoustic guitar, autoharp, drums, accordion, toys, laptop, dobro, taps, sampler, percussion, gamoshka, objects, organ and electric guitars. Audio cannibalism and deep listening has forged a strangely intense quality to their music which owes much to the influences of minimalism, post punk, British and German experimental rock and free jazz are audible, but also elements of bluegrass and traditional music.
Influences from Silver Apples, Delia Derbyshire and BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Cluster, Nurse With Wound as well as Boredoms, ESG, Fela Kuti, Funkadelic, Alice and John Coltrane. Mr Dan Hayhurst AKA Sculpture weaves together an audio collage that is beguiling, delicate, playful and funky.
Can do fucked up turntable/home made records sets, Heavy Casiocore or full on A&E NOIZE. Founder member of the legendary New Cross noize club The Gluerooms. “One of the UK 's most active circuit bent artists” a “raving lunatic” or a “musical anarchist”? You decide.
The Reactor Core is Splendid
Maverick, mercurial, meandering and occassionally muppet-like, fronted by a geeky gangly gimp The Reactor Core is Splendid will tonight also feature the infamous Nigel Noize and possibly a plethora of pervy percussionists.
