ALABASTER DE PLUME

(london)



a ruthlessly creative approach to experimental pop music delivers eastern-influenced
anthems, under spoken elements that attempt to challenge and address divisive rhetoric
recently prevalent in society. saxophonist and spoken word artist alabaster's show,
described in THE GUARDIAN as "a reminder of how vital and adventurous music can be",
enjoys an emphasis on candid interaction, humility and warmth.




^^top^^





BIG LAD

(london)



crushing electronics and drum duo, high octane party bangers to the max!




^^top^^





DRUG STORE ROMEOS

(fleet)



melancholic 'mood' music for swaying in the gloaming.




^^top^^





LOWER SLAUGHTER

(brighton/glasgow)



a four piece rock band from brighton and glasgow, who describe themselves modestly as
a band who make loud riffs, though THE QUIETUS description of 'lurching noise-rock
that occasionally works the angles but is chiefly a showpiece for big fuck-off riffs
that call to mind pissed jeans, nirvana and harvey milk' could be more accurate.

ORE

(uk)



ORE is the drone, doom tuba sound of sam underwood, a shapeshifting entity with
one-off live collaborations and experimentation commonplace. currently you can expect
beck baker on baritone horn / trombone and thomas stone on contrabassoon, adding
weight and beauty to the bass tones of underwood's tuba.

PHONE, MICROWAVE & SANDWICH

(london)



martin phone, john q microwave, and david f sandwich form a pulsing living electronic
threesome performing works better associated with ebbs & flows, fields of barley, and
glass cello. it sounds like aliens landing on earth and having sex.


^^top^^





SEDR77

(oxford)



doing the glacial jitterbug.




^^top^^





YERBA MANSA

(manchester/glasgow)



edwin stevens and andrew cheetham are two of manchester's most prolific purveyors of
raging, outer-limits rock-ism. both members of free-rock army DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE
VENTURA as well as countless other projects, they take a similar blueprint for their
head-to-head skyscraping duo, only with a singularity of heavy chord chug that aligns
them with GOWN or even FLOWER/CORSANO DUO. truly mind blowing.
