Paddy Steer blows all other one-man-bands out the water into the eccentricities of outer space. In rejection of the notion of ‘immaculate reproduction’, live performances from Paddy’s own project err more daringly and admirably on the frontier of chaotic abstraction, expression and focussed blunder, dice rolling down the hill in case of duende, as from behind his stacked array of instruments, the anarchically intrepid punk gargles through a vocoder with his xylophone, all a-clatter under disco lights and doilies.
The Nature Centre plays music that has been adulterated by all sorts of strange, nice things. It has been described as “the kind of fololoppy pop that Syd Barrett might make if he headed up a harmony girl group under the influence” Unorthodox Paradox. You heard Bethany Kay play solo at our last CIMB, this is a great opportunity to hear her in one of our favourite bands!
Musician, composer and singer-songwriter, Germa Adan aims to use music to inspire and share stories. Born in Haiti, she lived in the USA and now lived in Birmingham. She writes and performs material that draws inspiration from Haitian, American & British folk music.
Richard Sanderson plays the amplified melodeon (diatonic button accordion), pushing this quintessential 'folk' instrument into new areas. He runs the Linear Obessional record label, and dances with Blackheath Morris Men. " some ancient Radiophonic soundtrack to a long-lost children’s TV series. Its bare, metallic tones were simultaneously ancient and modern, analogue computer music composed by Viking scientists, perhaps. Past and not-quite future superimposed on a faulty VHS tape" (Paul Margree- We Need No Swords).
Excellent poster by Naomi Oppenheim.
