Visual documentation of the Dream Dreams The Dreamer show I played saturday night at Vivid arts space in Birmz. I expanded the orkestra to 3 drumkits, 3 guitars, 2 vocals, bass and violin. Thanks to the Capsule ladies. Photos by Stu Green and Pete Ashton.
-Loud as hell.
-Vocals so harsh the sound engineer cut them from the mix after 30 seconds.
-Lord Of The Flies (1963) projected behind us while playing.
-Suprisingly warm response from the audience and nice comments afterward.
-Also on the line up were Prurient/Cold Cave, Nicholas Bullen and Iron Fist Of The Sun.
-The awkestra increases in number for the next shows. More bass and the choir part will happen now there's enough people to sing.
My efforts to get more happening in Birmingham has just produced a great few weeks of busy ideas exchange with friends, and we're now in the final stages of securing a local space between a group of us - for music rehearsal, art exhibition, performance and other exciting plans. More news and details about this real soon!
I have some arwork in the new Feral Debris, an essential zine coming from Nottingham, UK.
Interviews with/ pages on Wooden Shjips, Jandek, Black Time, Moss, JW Veldhoen, Raven and more. While the accompanying cd-r contains new and exclusive tracks from Astral Social Club and others - fucked up electronics, blissed out fuzz, dislocated folk and jazz, walls of noise and crazed space punk.
Feral Rich also puts great shows on under the Rammel Club moniker. Get out of your chairs and check it out if you're nearby!
This is Rich, incase you should meet him:
