Pop Art vs. Industry presents:
THOMAS TRUAX + MISTERLEE
Wednesday 23rd Nov @ Jabez Clegg, Dover St, Manchester Â£4 adv
Thomas Truax is a NYC based singer/songwriter and multi-media artist who performs with mechanical sound sculptures like his Sister Spinster and Cadillac Beatspinner Wheel and instruments which he builds himself out of found objects and spare parts (such as the Hornicator), as well as with more standard gear like the venerable guitar. He is an illegitimate son of Screamin' Jay Hawkins and a mad scientist of experimental music with a history as a stop-motion animator. His carefully crafted songs range from dark, romantic lullabies to lively rock melodramas. Plus messy, scuzzy, British Anti-Folk from Leicester's biggest Revolution fans.
There'll be 1 or 2 others playing at this gig, but I haven't sorted it because I'm a fool.
