Saturday, 18 January 2014
20:00 until 02:00
The Castle Hotel, 66 Oldham Street, Manchester M4 1LE
Live performances from:
Harsh noise, circuit bending and rough music since 2000AD. One of
London's harshest and most powerful noise artists around today.
Extreme noise almost as good as the Japanese do it!
Manchester's favourite collection of people who enjoy getting together
and making horrible noises with electronics, voices and found pieces
of metal and machinery. Smash, bang, wallop!
"Experimental music output. Take it or leave it. Don't be a stranger.
Don't be a sinner."
Some guy from Glasgow made some music that was sort of anti-music, but
not really. He never wished to make a packet, he only wished to cause
Intense, uncomfortable, exciting, entertaining and sometimes even
infuriating noise from a real character. Expect quite a performance!
Legion of Swine
Legion of Swine is the main performing guise of Dave Procter, a Music
Technology and Production Lecturer at Leeds Metropolitan University.
Legion of Swine is interested in all aspects of noise creation and
destruction, using processed and found sounds mixed in with political
thought and disgust. New noise/drone LP "War War, not Jaw Jaw" will be
released early in 2014 and is concerned with the ever increasing
diminishing of personal freedom by authoritarian states.
Legion of Swine has performed in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic,
France, Germany, The Netherlands, Slovakia and the UK.
2 Koi Karp
Members: Neil VG (member of Gnod and recent addition to Terminal
Cheesecake) and Louise Woodcock (Poppycock - Una Baines project,
ex-Womb) began in earnest early this year with the acquisition of The
Basement Room space in central Manchester. Woodcock is also one half
of Woodcock & Grundstrom, regular artists-in-residence at queer
monthly party event Bollox.
The visual element is as important as the sound. A recent live score
was performed to a 'Jarman-esque' film Water Feather Stone by Louise
Woodcock, which included footage of live works in Ibiza by Maurice
Carlin and Jennifer Wu. The film was made in an abandoned outdoor
night club's amphitheatre on a hill on the island. The duo have also
created live scores to two films by Cheryl (New York art/party
collective). The live scores have all been performed at Video Jam
Plus DJ's from Dancing and Laughing, Maveatron and Nix Moriarty,
playing interesting music until quite late.
