No Pain In Pop presents
Tuesday June 8th 2010
CAMP Basement, Old Street
2000 - 0000 hrs
California's legendary SKATERS make a rare return to the UK, this time in their solo guises as the eponymous James Ferraro and Spencer Clark's Monopoly Child Star Searchers persona.
LIVE WITH VISUALS :
James Ferraro - http://www.last.fm/music/James+Ferraro
Ferraro has developed quite a reputation for his synth-heavy mutilations, often sounding like Jan Hammer being drugged into submission, always with that delicately skewed focus on reality that tickles the brain sweetly but can leave you unnerved all the same. His recent LP on New York's Olde English Spelling Bee - entitled 'Last American Hero' - is a modern classic.

The sound of Spencer Clark, a nostalgic alchemist summoning dust-encrusted tribal rhythms from musics that fell through the gap between the horizon and the sky.
