TEETH OF THE SEA
Teeth Of The Sea are a psychedelic rock band from London, bringing melodramatic giallo soundscapes, mariachi melancholia, occultist drone and cosmic noise freakout together into a fiery and turbulent instrumental elixir rich in texture, atmosphere and bloody-minded amplified overload. They've recently toured with Brooklyn psych-legends Oneida, not to mention supporting the likes of Wooden Shjips, The Heads and Grey Daturas, and appearing at the 2009 Offset Festival. Their debut album 'Orphaned By The Ocean' was released by Rocket Recordings in January 2009 to critical acclaim from the music press and plaudits from the likes of Julian Cope and Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3, and even got them a prestigious nomination for the Quietus’s mock Mercury prize. Their second platter, due in May 2010, is set to launch them into a whole plethora of aural adventures and horrors anew.
Mainlining a torrent of psycho-delic, reverb drenched, doomsday motorik and improvised-sounds is the master and mystery of Manchesters Gnod. Audiences have come to expect bizarre humanoid toasting over cosmic synth eeriness and duelling deep-vein-thrombosis juggernaut riffs. This unique sound has gained the seven members of Gnod huge underground acclaim, either from their countless CDR releases, shows across Europe, collaborations with New York’s White Hills or their very special recent radio session for Mark Reilys show on BBC 6 music.
Hailing from England’s rural South West, the trio were brought together amongst the ley-lines and ancient vibrations by a shared love of guitar abuse and pedal worship. Blending the quiet/noise aesthetic with modern experimentalism and melody, Thought Forms make their instruments tower higher than the sum of their parts, creating staggering waves of noise from a series of trapped, shimmering oscillations, force fed through bouts of overdrive. Their debut album which was released by Geoff Barrow from Portisheads label Invada Records landed great reviews and they have been witnessed live across the country including reputable shows at ATP in Minehead and the Terrorstock festival in USA.
plus, for one night only, the monstrous and mercurial
Brizlle's finest and flightiest mong-sician Matt 'Williams' Loveridge, whose spellbinding solo journeys into the most overgrown aural netherscapes have the ability to entrance and uplift in equal measure. Wholly beyond compare and off the radar, his debut release proper 'Alogon' has been blowing minds and sending superlative left, right and skyward since its release a few months ago, and yer man is about to tour Europe with Geoff Barrow's 'Beak', having already appeared on Portishead's 'Third' opus.
