now, thats a youtube moment

The second gig gets written up first: For Brighton live we took over the window of the clothes Shop juju in the North Laine as part of the Brighton Live promoters festival.

We set up _minimalVector inside the shop with a projector and his laptop for visuals, Tim and Soly kindly cleared the window and a rack of clothes inside.

Hot Roddy took first place and drew quite a crowd. He played a blinding set for about 40 minutes. Lee took a picture:

ANd we recorded an mp3:


Second in the space was Rashamon, hot foot from his show at Concorde2. Lee played a trademark set of hip hop inspired beats, beautiful washes and detailed psychedelia.

Heres the tail end of his set:
rashamon-Kelowna_Radio+Girl_ from_81.mp3

Last of all Terror Wogan let rip with the Atari stomp. crunching lo-fi 8bit ragga and electro.

pleased to say, that a passer by did capture the moment for us and post it up to youtube. Thanks clubberholic. He’s also the source for the photo’s up on flickr – so double thanks.

Outside the space-age

A busy night at the marlborough Theatre, starting off with a brief but entertaining burst of unpoesy analogue improv from that fake bureacracy. The picture has Notnick Rilke reclining and Untony’s rather nice van’s just visible from behind the table.

Is their entire set.

Komuso Buddha machines had another special one off performance for us. This time a piece for six Buddha machines and two Zoundz. The Buddha machines were distributed amongst members of the audience who had complete control of them and there was one Zoundz machine onstage with FX and one Zoundz in the audience. Overall a very inetersting experience in 3d sound. Here rendered in Mono simulated stereo.


Hot Roddy Bingo. Really needs no description. But that won’t stop me. Brief bursts of Hot Roddy songs, including live sitar. In random order, with bingo numbers called. The winner was Mr Gillitt of Roundhill Crescent who won the ingredients to make pancakes (it was shrove Tuesday after all).


KEYKEEPER+TEMPOS, Henry made an introductory speech about the nature of experimental music making and its current state. Then with some new software tweaked to strangeness, a toy guitar and some household appliances he sang a few songs There is a point on the recording where you can hear someone say “It’s like Danny and the Dressmakers crossed with The Butthole Surfers in a washing machine…In space”
And thats a fair enough set of pointers if you know any of them concerend. For the rest of you its Outsider electro-noise art.



ry-om are playing at next months Spirit of Gravity, I was going to put up an mp3 of Chris’ stuff in advance of this weeks show, but you should know it and if I can get it sorted we’ll have a live snippet to go up later this week anyway.

Here is a taster track from ry-om’slive cd.
