Ripsaw Catfish shoaling with Static Memories

Ripsaw Catfish is Anton Hunter (guitar) and Cath Roberts (baritone saxophone). The Manchester and London-based duo formed in 2013 to explore improvised and composed music, and whatever lies between those things. They employ a collection of pre-composed elements which can be drawn upon, or not, during the course of an improvisation.

In Autumn 2014 they are embarking on a UK tour with a collaborative focus. The duo will assemble ad hoc ensembles (‘shoals’) of improvising musicians from each location to play spontaneous sets of new music informed by, incorporating or ignoring the Ripsaw Catfish composed material.

Brought into being in 2007, Nyogotha is a project in the creation of introspective soundscapes and meditative ambience that recreates the experience of being in nothingness. Inspired by the minimalism of Sunn O))) and Skepticism in consort with the psychedelic sounds of Hawkwind and Lycia, Nyogtha seeks to bring together Doom and Shoegaze so as to take the listener on a journey into the void.

Idiot Drone Farm in an Idiot Drone Off

Making their Début for The Spirit of Gravity, long time collective members formed IDF last year and will go head to head in a major league drone off. Hopefully with B-Boy jeering and rabble rousing antics.
“All the drone-heads in the house go “HmmMMMmmm!”
