MV&EE kick off their UK tour with Cambridge's The Doozer with an intimate show in CB2 including an overdue appearance by Pete UM.
'Blending and bending acoustic folk jams with rock and psych, the Vermont-based couple graze upon the fields laid down by The Grateful Dead and Gene Clark, and swim in the depths with Loren Connors and The Dead C. Heroes who have blazed through all kind of colourful scenes and tags like a hot knife through space butter, they have created a body of work that has warmed many a soul through their releases (nigh on 200), exploratory live show and a whole host of visions and stereo experiments. Teaming up with fellow travellers such as Mick Flower, John Moloney, J. Mascis, and The Doozer, their discography is labyrinthine, documenting a long term vision that has stayed true to its course regardless of passing fads, and places them at the heart of of the US psychedelic underground. A singular exploration of American songform and the unknown worlds beyond.'

THE DOOZER has been performing, recording and writing for a handful of years in the down home Cambridge scene. The music is always changing like the way we read history. His latest, going by the name of FUTURE SONGS because it was really always pointing that way, was released in SEPTEMBER 2013 on AL-REHAB RECORDS on LP only. Previous releases on WOODSIST, SILTBREEZE, PICKLED EGG & SLOOWTAPES.
“A recent show that blew all attending asses out of the water was a short gig by a Cambridge UK duo known as The Doozer. The lazy man’s way to review it to call it a bridge between Syd B and Chris Knox, carrying all the weird damage and superb left field pop motion that implies.” BYRON COLEY / BULL TONGUE TOP 10 (US)
(Grist, Gagarin, Tripel)
Lo-fi electronic songs, neurotic and quixotic charity-shop funk, highly personal stereo.
Based in Cambridge, UM has written over 2000 songs as well as playing across Europe, including tours with Felix Kubin and sharing stages with the likes of Ariel Pink, Panda Bear, Charlemagne Palestine and The Magic Band in Cambridge and elsewhere.
'like a one-man boombox version of The Residents ... like a quiet idea-storm: a procession of thoughts, camera-angles, memories, rambles, rumbles, micro-anthems, marching songs, drinking games, broken raps, Pop-monologues, miniatures, chamberwerks, salon songs, an orchestra of shed.' kidshirt.blogspot.com
