MARIA & THE MIRRORS
Maria & The Mirrors appeared in Deptford, London one night in 2008 following years of studying the ‘Netto’ style of shamanic drum invocation in the Siberian islands of Novaya Zemlya. This style originated in the 1950s as residents of the town of Belushya found the only way to cope with the frequent atomic testing was by coming together and going drum crazy, inducing trance-like states within the polyrhythmic din. The Mirrors update this traditional style, influenced by the likes of Hanatarash and Throbbing Gristle, treating all sounds electronically and fused with whirring concrète tape noise harvested from around London Town like Pierre Schaeffer on a really rotten day. These combine with visceral double drum attack and nagging vocal melodies recalling Yoko Ono & Gang Gang Dance --- Netto Disco Sound! Complemented by a luridly glamorous/tropical visual and sartorial look inspired by the likes of Kenneth Anger, Roxy Music, Sister Sledge and Justine Frischmann. Maria & The Mirrors have undertaken many live demonstrations including one inside a decommissioned nuclear research reactor in Minsk and concerts with the likes of Faust, OOIOO & Charles Hayward of This Heat. Their début single 'Omar' was released last year to frenzied acclaim & are poised to release a new long player, currently labouring under the title of 'Travel Sex'.
FAIRHORNS (ex TEAM BRICK)
In hopes of producing eternal musical yang, Brighton locals assemble cascading, kaleidoscopic broadcasts regarding obscure telepathic harmonics. Entranced, resonating signals form ever expanding leaps toward healing energy. Spiraling auditory magic eternally locked in kinaesthesia encumbering meditative experiences
