HOUSE OF JOHN PLAYER (bletchley, uk)
house of john player is the solo YO! wave project from dean spacer. As the years have passed, house of john player has shifted through different styles and set ups from wierd folky-pop sets, noisy disgruntled keyboards to loopy pop-tastic jams with slices of face-cringing high ends.

I AM HOMOSAPIEN (reading, uk)
A blast from the past and a very warm welcome back to Matt Wells (formerly of To The Barricades and Val Killmer amongst many other projects).

Matt's I Am Homosapien played for us many times and in many different forms (guitar drone loops, electronic ambience, throat singing) before travelling and teaching throughout Asia; collecting a number of field recordings. Since his return he has been working on new material.
