Kikagaku Moyo

KIKAGAKU MOYO (Geometric Patterns) got the inspiration for their name after playing for six hours straight in the darkness at which point they started to see colours and patterns behind their eyelids. KIKAGAKU MOYO state that with improvisation they can freely explore beyond consciousness as they make ‘free music’ and you can well imagine this as they take you on a journey through inner space with Mammatus Clouds. Here we are treated to meditative waves of ritualistic music as sitar player Ryu is to the fore on these recordings as the band stretch out to infinity, falling somewhere between the collected works of Bo Anders Perrson, George Harrison’s sitar exploits and The Taj Mahal Travellers.

More bands to be announced.

Tickets will be on sale soon.



Wed Oct 22 @19:00 - 10:30PM
Clay Rendering / Perspex Flesh / Shallow Sanction / Sump / Cremation Lily

clayrenderingfinal

CLAY RENDERING (Hospital Poductions - USA) Wolf Eyes’ Mike Connelly and his wife, Tara, playing together as Clay Rendering. A delicate yet uncompromising sound drifting somewhere between Shoegaze, Industrial, Metal and Ambient music, they recall everything from Cocteau Twins and Cranes at their most desolate to classic Sonic Youth. We'll whisper it for fear of retribution from men in leather jackets; but this is essentially pure pop music in that time-honoured play-it-again-and-again fashion - a wide-scoped portal to pleasures hard to resist by any and all functioning ears who know what's good.

 

PERSPEX FLESH (Static Shock - UK) Unhinged and abstract hardcore punk that carries on the legacy of bands such as Rudimentary Peni through to Cold Sweat of creating an all-encompassing feeling of claustrophobia through their music.

 

SHALLOW SANCTION (Hospital Productions - UK) London deathrock band Shallow Sanction have just released their first EP on Hospital Productions taking the raw 80's UK punk influence of Conflict / Rudimentary Peni / Crass but with the dark edges of Part 1 / Vex / Christian Death / Killing Joke which all together is a haunting and destructive combination.

 

SUMP (Legion Blotan - UK) Not to be missed Yorkshire locals Sump play raw black metal with oi!/punk influences to the harshest degree. Featuring George Proctor of White Medal / Legion Blotan and Gareth Howells of Axnaar. 

 

CREMATION LILY (Alter/Strange Rules - UK) Norwich artist Zen Zsigo has been creating music under the moniker Cremation Lily for the past several years now bringing a haunting, dark, brooding and honest edge to the UK power electronics/noise scene, releasing records on Harbinger Sound, Alter and his own label Strange Rules.

Pale Seas

In the summer of 2011, having dropped out of University, Jacob Scott was asking himself PSquestions wondering where his life might be heading. Jaded by formal education, he did the only thing that had ever provided him real joy – writing music. With an old acoustic guitar and a 4-track cassette recorder, he holed himself up in his Leytonstone flat and began work on a set of songs that would change his world entirely. Reverb-drenched and otherworldly, the music from those first recordings was beautiful and bitter-sweet. Recalling deep, honest emotions of love and anguish, pain and joy. Tinged with a sadness that was also reticently uplifting (as heard onSomething or Nothing“), Jacob captured a sprit that speaks to the heart. One filled with all the torment and illation of a young man coming to grips with himself and the world he inhabits. Realising his music had potential, Jacob moved back to his hometown of Southampton and put together a band of old school friends and band-mates from former musical projects. Graham Poole was recruited to play lead guitar, Matthew Bishop playing bass, and Jacob’s then girlfriend Zealah Isabella Anstey on backing vocals. Together they briefly named themselves Netherlands, before settling on Pale Seas and began to rehearse Jacob’s songs. Their first studio session with producers Jimmy Robertson & Demian Castellanos (Klaxons / Big Pink / Last Shadow Puppets) revealed the true promise of the fledgling band and Pale Seas’ first single “Something or Nothing“, with B-side “Amour“, was released in March 2012 on 7″ vinyl by Fear & Records (UK) and Fastcut Records (Japan). Gaining a huge amount of interest, the single sold out within days of release, was included on Radio 1′s Introducing playlist, and won them a host of shows and support slots with the likes of The War on Drugs, Beach Fossils, and Jacob’s childhood musical heros The Lemonheads. Follow up double A-side single “Bodies” / “My Own Mind” continued to build on their success. This time enlisting Mercury nominated Paul Butler (The Bee’s / Devendra Banhart / Michael Kiwanuka) on production duties at his studio on the Isle of Wight. Paul brought with him a sound which once again elevated the band beyond their humble beginnings, with thick, luscious soundscapes underpinning Jacob’s ever developing song writing.

Free film screening of the film "Speciesism" along with a free vegan buffet

In 1975, a young writer published a book arguing that no justifications exist for considering humans more important than members of other species. It slowly began to gain attention. Today, a quickly growing number of prominent individuals and political activists are adopting its conclusions. They have termed the assumption of human superiority speciesism. And, as a result, they rank these animal factories among the greatest evils in our history. Speciesism: TheMovie brings viewers face-to-face with the leaders of this developing movement, a nd, for the first time ever on film, fully examines the purpose of what they are setting out to do.

Ex- Treme Halloween

Celebrate Halloween in style this year at Wharf Chambers. First up we have an ace gig [so ace it's not been publicised yet] and then we're gonna be DJing into the wee small hours with a selection of haunting melodies.

The theme is celebrity couples who have broken up. This is a loose theme, and of course you can make it spooky or come as something else entirely.

There will be exciting drinks and mischief on the night to look forward to...


Please note that we do have a safer spaces agreement and take this into consideration when deciding on how to dress. People wearing costumes that contravene it will be turned away.
