QUACK QUACK (leeds, uk)
the music of quack quack isnít easy to categorize, but take a shared spirit of improvisation and a healthy disregard for well trodden musical paths and youíre moving in the right direction. like the great rhythm sections of james brown, africa 70, can and led zeppelin, quack quack operate right next to your heartbeat and your footsteps. they understand the importance of rhythm and use it to get the good chemicals flowing. this is music for dancing and smiling.

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.
