We are really excited for this double header night of raw experiments in noise!

Russell Haswell; record producer, free improvisor, computer musician, noise aficionado, curator and collaborator who trained at Coventry School of Art, and graduated in 1991.

In addition, he has a long history in the Japanese noise scene, having and or recorded, performed or supported INCAPACITANTS, Corrupted and Pain Jerk. Haswell also supported G.I.S.M. in 2002 in Tokyo (in a trio with Merzbow and Zbigniew Karkowski).       WATCH   WEBSITE

Yeah You are a Father/daughter dada-leaning dyad whose improvised musical and geographical excursions will leave your head spinning like a well rubbered doughnut in a car park. Yeah You is Elvin Brandhi and Gustav Thomas. The project grew from a desire to make something during every spare moment. Using compact recording gear to turn the usual banal everyday family drives to into spontaneous recording sessions in the car. Thomas’s distorted, alluringly jarred synthesisation’s acting as a jagged platform for Brandhi to writhe improvised stream of consciousness lyrical trips.

Usurper are a couple of music dodgers from the capital who play with the very idea of being an experimental artist... I have seen them play solos on their corduroy slacks then stare into space for unnecessarily lengthy periods whilst holding cartoons placards, taking impromptu progress reports under tables, murdering sentient glasses of milk, complaining, dribbling behind masks, thwarting bugged attempts at self sabotage... Usurper are unapologetic entertainment. WEBSITE
