PRE-SUNDAY LUNCH IMPROV AT KETTLES YARD W/ PETE UM & PALS

Meanwhile, in The Other Cambridge, you can listen to some Improv Electronic Music before you pop off and have yr traditional sunday roast. What a great idea! Music for Hangovers.

Tomorrow, 12pm, (FREE!) at Kettles Yard:

Improvisation and inventions from local artists working with sound, noise and mixing instrumentation with environmental and mechnical sound sources.

C Joynes (Bo' Weavil Records): Innovative Cambridge guitarist now getting deservedly wider attention. Presenting new work using tapes/soundtrack techniques.

Cambridge Free Improvisation Society: Cambridge improv collective formed a few years ago and now putting out their first releases. Previously seen at Crushing Death supporting Eric Chenaux at The Shop, as well as elsewhere in Cambridge.

Babygrand: Norwich duo who use field recordings, musical saws, bowed metal, music boxes, mechanical birds, endless loops to create beautiful sound and music for close listening.

Pete Um: tapes and processing.

Local Radio: Cambridge-based sound and drone project using localised radio transmissions and exploring lo-fi sounds and spaces which began with a temporary installation at Kettle's Yard in 2008.

Pete says: "Going to do a short set of not-singing-over-tapes at this, but rather some live manipulation of archive experimental non-genre-lized free sound. TEAC A-3340S + filters and FX."

JOKER: "TRON"

Looove the sweater!



Forthcoming Joker tune (from a set by Headhunter? Mixed into a Pinch track...??)

THE CARRIE NATIONS

The Carrie Nations = The Kelly Affair.

I love imaginary Pop/Rock groups.

Just been watching Russ Meyer's bonkers-but-excellent "Beyond The Valley of The Dolls"; thought I'd share this with ya. It's a great song! The film also features a (rather tame, I think) Strawberry Alarm-Clock. Didn't The Adult Net cover their song?



The pop svengali guy ("Z-Man") looks like Tim Goldworthy's imaginary flashback younger brother. Wonder if this is how DFA used to sign their acts?

The music's by the great Stu Philips. Coincidentally, I bought a job-lot of Monkees' LPs yesterday.
