Tiger & Panda & Ox & Otter, Vase, Land's End, Headfall play at Cafe Kino, Bristol, Sat 28th Apr 2012
Hey, I thought I'd post on here about a gig I have organised as part of an artist residency I'm doing at Cafe Kino on Stoke's Croft in Bristol. Part of it is going to be recorded live, there will be artwork hanging and free tea and cake. The music is lo-fi/diy/folk/punk.

TIGER & PANDA & OX
Tiger & Panda are Oliver Watson and Henry Ireland respectively. They have been playing together as Tiger & Panda since 2007. In 2009, David Burke joined the band as ‘Ox’. Steve ‘Otter’ Brett will also join them for this gig. They try to change their music a little between each performance and recording. Their performance on Saturday the 28th of April will be the first of three completely unique Tiger & Panda performances that will take place at Café Kino over the course of 2012. These three performances will recorded on 4-track tape by Philip Dodd. At the end of the year, a copy of these recordings will be given to Café Kino as a thank you. They will also probably be made available to listen to and purchase, most likely through Polite Records.
Vase is a project by Stephen Lane. He will be joined on the 28th by George McKenzie. In 2004, Lollipop Michael Keane wrote a review of Vase in which he said, “Vase actually is the Chippenham underground scene.” Since then, Stephen has relocated to Norwich, but he has maintained close ties with Bristol and its music. His songs are hushed, softly spoken over minimal electronic sounds and gently plucked Spanish guitar. Vase has released six cassette albums, five CD-R albums and two 7" vinyl records on hand idiom recordings.
Land’s End is Matthew Cheney. Matthew is best known for Arctic Circle, players of dreamy electronic pop. When I saw Land’s End play, it was a lovely wall of spidery looped guitar and voice, including a Syd Barrett cover. Matthew is still preparing what he will perform on the 28th, but I can guarantee it will be amazing!

Headfall: ‘We’re not low-key, we’re no-key’. Headfall are a tight-loose noise collage with hypnotic rhythms, soft spoken word, shrieked vocals, jagged guitar, melodic guitar, squealing clarinet and super amazing harmonies that fly out of nowhere.
A whole load of artwork will be hanging from strings around the room. You can bring in a little something to hang up if you'd like (it must be unframed and paper or something similar. it will be hung from bulldog clips).
TEA AND CAKE
There will be tea and cake courtesy of Cafe Kino (I am paying them for this I promise!)
