21st century Psychedelia. “ouroboric” – The Wire.
Playing the hits of Sold – Slowly.
Canadian improvising guitarist with a new multitrack tape loop setup.
ElMaes will be performing the live debut of their single “5” in its 25 minute version, described by The Wire as “petty damn Ouroboric”: this piece is based around Thai chanting, Sitar and Tabla, along with a special light show and should induce a pleasingly altered state of consciousness.
Also performing will be Celled, who perform songs written by their alter ego Sold, but very, very slowly. Live they offer a delirious blend of analogue synthesiser, computers and cornet. On this occasion one member will be joining them via a linkup from Scotland.
And completing the evening will be a new project from guitarist Jim Black. Jim is a member of the Brighton Safehouse collective, Torque and Urban Myth. For this show he will be performing a solo set with my new multi-track loop set-up.
The CD “Geburah” remixes of “5” is available for download free from http://www.wmrecordings.com/releases/wm060.htm
Hosted by our very own electro-comedian Lee Hulme.
