TILEHURST CHILDRENS ARKESTRA + MAX DANZ + PET CAT
where: south street arts centre, reading, uk.
when: 10 December 2011 20:00 - 23:00
admission: £3
tilehurst childrens arkestra let the music do the talking. formed by five alumni of denefield School in tilehurst after jamming together for a number of years, the arkestra have been gigging some of reading's more illustrious venues (south street, the rising sun arts centre, global cafe, etc) since 2007 as well as throwing in the odd jaunt to london, hamburg, and bracknell for good measure. their powerful sound is as equally informed by teenage obsessions with metal, indie rock, and rap music as it is by their more mature tastes in krautrock, jazz, and progressive rock - a heady mixture that the band strip down to it's brass tacks, producing short, sharp, precise bursts of songs without the endless "faffing about" connected with many of these genres.

MAX DANZ (reading, uk)
max danz is one part hunting the shy, and the whole of silvery magnus. sounds like grandaddy backed up by some meaty beats and electronic squelches.

PET CAT (reading, uk)
formed from the remnants of, possibly, our favourite ever reading band HUNTING THE SHY, PET CAT started life as a solo output for aliís fragile song-writing. with the addition of former stalker-of-the-meek will on bass and liam on drums (both of ddd!? house band and readingís "most lethal rhythm section", TODDLERS) PET CAT became a formidable live unit and released the classic 'wires' cassette back in 2012; a spell-binding mix of reverb drenched dream-pop-heaviosity and delicate song craft.

will was replaced by phil whose adroit playing not only complements the existing songs but fleshes out new material that continues to highlight the individual voice and talents of this skilful trio.
