one man team dance and ebbs and flows were both due to play this show - but due to heavy snowfall across the whole country had to pull out at the last minute. miraculously drum eyes made it all the way from newcastle!
DRUM EYES (brighton, uk)
brighton’s drum eyes are surely one of the most intense bands to break out in the last couple of years.

lead by experimental, gabba hero dj scotch egg with a band of brothers (and sister) the line up includes ex-boredoms drummer, e-da, and members of i'm being good and sloath amongst others.

debut album "gira gira" (upset the rhythm) received unrelenting critical acclaim upon its release in wugust of 2010. described by nme as: an epic record with endless possibility, it greedily mashes sludgy doom riffs with spaced-out psychedelia, smatterings of krautrock, and goblin-esque synths.

the onslaught of live shows has become notorious in itself, with festival appearances completely packed out at end of the road and supersonic. this is not a record to listen to on your ipod, but a whirling dervish of an experience which will blast you out of the stratosphere into a whole other dimension. not to be missed!


SILVERY MAGNUS (reading, uk)
a perverted loner, silvery magnus mostly plays electronic machines and manipulated feedback. has a disgraceful fetish for sound modifying pedals. also enjoys magnets & metal objects. smears his sound onto computers & minidiscs & cdrs.

JOE MARSHALL (oxford, uk)
JOE has been traversing higher plains of sound for over a decade now, slowly perfecting his craft over that period he navigates between the skyward trajectories of bowed guitar and the cosmic bound explorations of droned synths and other-worldly sampled loops. it is difficult not to experience his music as a journey to a place both familiar yet refreshingly ‘other’.

“…a delightfully unsignposted and roadless musical landscape…essential to all you inner space cadets…” – JULIAN COPE
