CITY YELPS//DANOPPOSITE//THE TALL BOY//AMY HEARN & MATT ROBSON

CITY YELPS

A supergroup of sorts, featuring members of Downdime and The Real Losers, City Yelps channel a primal yet elegantly refined post-punk sound that conjures up images of a disgruntled Martin Hannett shaping icy cold sounds from a mixing desk in the shadows.
Their debut album, “Cheap Psych” released on the very Yelps-friendly format of cassette tape, presents a collection of stripped down pop numbers that, rather than harking back to the sixties garage sounds that the title might suggest, are wintery sounding vignettes inscribed with a delightfully cold urbanity.

 

DANOPPOSITE

Inhabiting a no-man’s land somewhere between the lyrical flow of Sage Francis and the prog-hop sampledelica of Paul White, danopposite is the vehicle with which Daniel Hearn and Matt Robson realise their off-kilter hip-hop fantasies.

 

THE TALL BOY

The Tall Boy officially kicked off back in 2003 with the release of first full-length cd album, Goes On, released on US-based indie label, Red Square Records (still available from jenandstew.com). The album was the first solo outing for Matty Green, and largely recorded on 4-track cassette at home. Relocating to Glasgow, solo Tall Boy soon became a three-piece (later four-piece) band, and a regular fixture on the vibrant local scene.

 

AMY HEARN & MATT ROBSON

The debut of Amy Hearn’s disarmingly sweet and helium tinged voice, she is backed on production by LS6 stalwart Matt Robson (randomNumber/Ailsa Craig/Blanche Hudson Weekend etc). “Songs” about the baffling experience of love and existence in late capitalist society, they are at once laments but also outpourings of confusion and dissillusioment at life in an accelerated culture paradoxically locked in stasis.

Fictions of Every Kind - Hearts

One of our early words of encouragement cards read, "If you write - you're a writer." We believe fictionsheartthis just as much now as we did then - that it's the act of writing, not our relative 'success', that defines us as writers. In honour of St Valentine, welcome to our February event: Hearts, hosted by Jenna, Claire and Sarah. We have two great invited speakers at this event, and as usual, there'll be a writers' open mic. Anybody is welcome to come along, even if they only want to sit & listen. Our invited speakers at this event will be:

NASSER HUSSAIN A poet whose work has been variously described as "Hip hop without the beats & rhymes," "Slam chutzpah, smarts and experimental brio with a healthy dash of disbelieving rage" will be with us to read from his recently published collection, BOLDFACE, published now on Burning Eye Press. 

 

SUZANNAH EVANS A poet from Sheffield whose work has appeared in Magma, The Rialto, and The North magazine. Her pamphlet Confusion Species was a winner in the 2011 Poetry Business Book competition, and she has been poet in residence at Bank Street Arts.

 

+ WRITERS' OPEN MIC at which short stories, true stories, flash fiction, poetry, and excerpts of larger work are all welcome. Please keep your contributions at 5 minutes or under, to give everybody the chance to read.

 

+ Music from RED TREES.

Otchestre Tout Puissant Marcel Duchamp

OTPMD are an impossibly crazy endeavour. They took a classical marimba player, a dadaistotpmd bern 20140921 2 302861 clown and violinist, free jazz double bass and trombone, a punk guitarist, and Dog Faced Hermans' old drummer Wilf Plum, and turned them into an afrobeat band. Sort of. Their gigs are beautiful, suave, dancing affairs, equal parts Swiss art-punk and West African rhythmic drive. Joy is the point. 

 

Howie Reeve, ex of Glasgow marvels Tattie Toes, is on the road as a solo act these days. Super stripped down, it's just him and his weirdly tuned acoustic bass guitar, playing beautifully crafted songs influenced by De Kift, The Ex and Mike Watt. It's that end of things, but very much his own conception, He released his second album, We are in repair, in September. 

 

Nut Club are a trio from Leeds, born out of a love for, and disillusionment with Jazz, as much of it is practised in the U.K. They feature members of Shatners Bassoon and Solanki, and they pretty much sound like a cross between those two bands - the minutemen, New Orleans funk, and free jazz are the three points holding them up.

Ark Noise Presents

Ark Noise Bookings proudly presents a night of ambient, atmospheric music from...arknoise

Ten 

Ten is the name given to the musical recordings made by Dominic Deane. Ten is a mixture of ambient, instrumental, and electronica sounds. His sound combines electronic keys, shoegaze noise and percussion to create a beautiful sound-scape that moves from slow, eery and melancholic to pulsating and optimistic. Ten have supported Tim Hecker, Stuart Braithwaite (Mogwai), Esmerine (GY!BE/A Silver Mt. Zion,), and Lucky Dragons. 



GLOTTALSTOP (Petrels) 


Glottalstop is Oli Barrett (Petrels) who released debut album 'Woodsmoke' on Tartaruga Records earlier this year. Sourced almost entirely from a collection of tape recordings dating back 20 years, the two long-form tracks that make up this LP are an exercise in slowbuild tension, unsettling claustrophobia, and dense textural collage. This distorted tape assemblage is tied together with additional improvised cello and electronics, never standing still, but letting each sound explore its full potential before moving on.

"Insanely awesome debut release from Glottalstop aka the Petrels dude, basking in an unsettling tape manipulated tension. Woodsmoke is fucking fantastic, two side long pieces that are dark as hell, the A side is super minimal and the B side cranks the horror volume to 11, the whole thing sounds like a haunted mansion coming to life to chill yer bones." - Anti-Gravity Bunny

 

MAX BONDI


Max Bondi is an electronic musician and owner/founder of Tartaruga Records. His second album - 'Convolution' - was an album of the week on Boomkat and Fluid Audio and picked up further praise from Experimedia ("my personal favourite new listen this week - can't stop listening!").

"A record this fucking good only come around once in a long while" - Anti-Gravity Bunny
