Prurient - www.hospitalproductions.com
Lurching, droning noise with influences ranging from power electronics to punk-rock. Ian Dominick Fernow a.k.a Prurient is one of the most recognised and influential names in the noise genre and his new release 'The Rose Pillar' on Heartworm Press further asserts this. Hear music at the Hospital Music and The Heartworm Press Myspaces.
"Prurient is not about an attack but rather a cry for help. Prurient takes the listener to the ends of human emotion as the range of sounds swell as the light of life fades. What’s evidenced in these recordings is a sense of loss and destruction that can’t be replaced. The sound feels more like an erosion of steady decline, ebb and flow, storms, power controlled and power unleashed."
Cold Cave - www.myspace.com/coldcave
Cold Cave is Wesley Eisold with a live collective of friends (including celebrated author Max G. Morton and Caralee McElroy of Xiu Xiu) offering backing to his paens of loves lost and lives shattered. Influences as diverse as New Order, Faust and Whitehouse coalesce to form a scathing, seething beast that has a centre of pure white light and melody. Many will be familiar with Wes from American Nightmare, Some Girls & XO Skeletons but this is an entirely different beast and a very realised work.
"Cold Cave has developed its own brand of genre defying electronic music, without ever betraying its dark roots. Love and pornography, Industrial music and traditionalism, poetry and profanity all mix together in a hedonistic, cocktail of nihilistic nights and mournful mornings." Ian Dominick Fernow.
Bad Orb - www.myspace.com/itsabadorb
Brighton resident Sarah Albury's Bad Orb project is the call of the wild through mangled tape reels, fucked music boxes, distant whispers, broken glass and beautiful howling winds. Dreamscapes put to tape. One release is on Hex Out Tapes and there is a split with Towering Breaker on Archivo De Sangre De Dio & a tape on Total Vermin both currently in the works.
Prurient & Cold Cave will be playing a collaborative set featuring renditions of their own material and some new collaborative works. Flyer coming. Please bring distro's, zines, tapes, anything you want, there WILL be space. I always say so & no-one does!
The Greenhouse Effect, Brighton, 8pm, Tuesday May 26th (TONIGHT), £6.
