19th September - Nation of Shopkeepers - Leeds
AIDAN BAKER (Nadja):
Aidan Baker is a musician and writer currently based in Toronto, Canada. Classically trained in flute, he is self-taught on guitar, drums, and various other instruments. As a solo artist, Baker explores the deconstructive sonic possibilities of the electric guitar as a primary sound source, creating music that ranges from experimental to post-rock to contemporary classical. He also performs in the experimental collective ARC and the ambient/doom metal project Nadja.
SIMON SCOTT (ex-Slowdive):
Simon Scott is the ex Slowdive drummer ("Just for a day" LP/ "Souvlaki" LP/"5ep" EP) who runs the KESH recording label from Cambridge and has also released music on Morr music with Seavault. In 2010 he co wrote two songs "Shimmer" and "It all Falls Apart" for The Sight Below on "It All Falls Apart" cd out now on Ghostly International.
The Wire Magazine say: "Scott is particularly adept at layering coolly shimmering guitars and dark churning currents of noise into something vast". "A haunting aspect of 'Navigare' is how it seems to contain traces of tunes that stand out like half-forgotten relics of the past
