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.

Its about irony and affliction and convenient miracles leading to a happy ending. Mainly a saxophone concert, it is based on classical traditions and experiments with jazz and less popular music.
Zuender.Zeit.de reviews CobSOn’s Wasted?
Ich bin entzückt von CobSOn Produktionen. In Songs wie Kidding oder Road durchlebe ich ihren Herzschmerz. Ihre Stimme ist rau und sinnlich, sie springt auch mal und klingt einfach voll aus dem Bauch heraus. Zusammen mit einem Piano, einer Gitarre und einfachen Aufnahmegeräten ergibt das Musik, die mir sagt: Du bist nicht alleine, hoer mal zu, ich kenne das Gefuehl.

Elmaes – Geburah! [WM060]
New WM Recordings release available now through eMusic:
The fourth full-length Rubber Band Banjo album emphasizes the use of unfamiliar sounds played on homemade instruments and electrified objects. The rhythmic sound sources include 3-stringed and rubber band zithers with percussion on both electronic drums and objects amplified with contact mics. As a result the album is largely percussive driven, but has ambient and dynamic qualities from the natural recordings, software synthesizers, voice, and shortwave radio. These recordings are inspired by avant rock, krautrock, and whatever comes out of experimenting with electrified objects and instruments largely made from junked parts.
