Shannon Wright's alt.country trio Crowsdell released two acclaimed LPs for Big Cat during the 1990s. They were recorded by Steve Malkmus and were regular John Peel favourites. When Crowsdell disbanded in 97', Shannon Wright thought about quitting music. After borrowing a 4 track machine, however, Wright taught herself to play drums, and a musical metamorphosis was set in motion. Her solo releases since have unleashed a visceral, abrasive, and raw form of post-punk expressionism. Wright's guitar-playing, and her approach to composition are simply unique.
Wright has recorded with Steve Albini and Yann Tierson, since signing to Touch and Go Records. She has made eight acclaimed albums (including FlightSafety, Maps of Tacit, Over The Sun, Let in the Light, and most recently, Secret Blood). In the live arena, she really shines; Shannon has been the touring partner of choice for Low, Sleater-Kinney, The Dirty Three, and Nick Cave, and was part of the ATP curated by Shellac and the Dirty Three. This is a rare opportunity to see a remarkable, intense, and groundbreaking performer in the U.K. Don't miss it.
