Team Brick *
Over the years we've seen multi-instumentalist Bristolian Team Brick – otherwise known as Matt Williams –
discover that he can throat sing by accident; pulverise speakers with gabba freak-outs; engage in personal
exorcisms on stage; maintain knife-edge tension with solos on accordion, clarinet or guitar; terrify us with
squalling noise; or test his endurance with sustained lighting speed piano minimalism. He'll collaborate with
Portishead's Geoff Barrow one minute and wallow in weirdness with The A Band the next. We have no idea
what he'll do at Bang the Bore, which is precisely why we want him to play for us.
Spoils and Relics
Leeds-based three piece who improvise using cassette tapes, electronics and found items, existing
somewhere between plunderphonics, hauntology, noise and the exploratory improvisation of Alvin Curran or
Cobbled together cheap electronics, nervous energy and a lot of hope. Kevin Sanders is our favourite scruffy
theorybitch vegan in Leeds.
A vocabulary of hums, glitches, drones, crackles, feedback and test tones. Blandford Forum's Adam Baker
has an attention to detail and lightness of touch that breathes life into sounds most musicians try to discard or
Possibli, a drummer, a chap with a Moog Voyager, and some chunky kraut/prog action. quite possibli their first gig. I DON'T KNOW.
but i'm excited, and so should you be.
Masterly! and Farewell
Two men, alone in darkened rooms at opposite ends of the country, must master their chosen fields
(pedal steel guitar and the Buddy Rich one-handed push-pull technique) by Sunday 18th July.
Heather Leigh Murray and Chris Corsano beat them to the punch with Jailbait and they have no
aptitude for either country or big band jazz. Two hearts align across two hundred and forty miles
of motorways and A roads. Your hosts, with connections to Boduf Songs, Defibrillators, Hunting
Lodge and Little Creature.
