Some new sounds from Adam Fairhall on accordion, Michael Perrett on bass clarinet and me on mainly ebowed electric guitar
QUASI SPECTRAL ENGLISH FOLKSONG NOSTALGIA IMPROVISATION
“OH MY GOD WHAT A LOAD OF S##T SKEGNESS BUTLINS IS!!!”
“We visited Skegness Butlins in 2007 and it is the filthiest place I’ve ever been, it’s too expensive and poorly organised. My youngest son (11 years of age) actually cried at the end of our terrible first and last day trip to Butlins Skegness, he has never cried before from a day trip (any trip)!
We’ve been to some doosies in our time, but we always managed to have a good time at some point in the day at other disappointing attractions (usually boring museums) we didn’t even get a small amount of fun at Butlins Skegness.”
Looking forward to this my first gig of the year.
“Space Food is a new group in which three fine Manchester improvisers take on the format of the traditional organ trio; Adam Fairhall on organ, Johnny Hunter on drums and Dave Birchall on guitar. The organ trio is still a rarity in free improvisation, despite the rich timbral possibilties of the instrumentation. Space Food exploit the sonic potential to the full, from wriggly, scratchy lines to room-filling, vibrating, sustained sounds. Sometimes the tradition of organ combos will put in an appearance, and a funky groove will form, before being brutally demolished.”
It will happen at The Noise Upstairs, Fuel, Withington, Manchester from 8:30pm
