Topping the bill we are very excited to have a live set from ICR Records don Colin Potter. Colin’s early work managed to draw lines from the electronic side of krautrock, Throbbing Gristle and Brian Eno and marched forward into the future. After racking up an impressive solo discography and many production credits throughout the 80s, Colin joined Nurse With Wound in 1992.
However, despite recording and gigging all over the world with Nurse With Wound, Colin still finds time to not only maintain a high quality solo output, he also collaborates with the likes of Fovea Hex, Human Greed, The Hafler Trio, Bass Communion and many more. He’s a busy man who rarely plays solo but he’s kindly made some time for you because you’re going to be in Hebden Bridge that day.
Who else could support Colin but semi-local drone monsters Slomo? They previously played on the same bill together in London last year at the behest of Mr.Sunn O))) himself Stephen O’Malley. Slomo are a duo consisting of local lad Howard Marsden and, from Julian Cope’s band, Holy McGrail. They’ve done two albums for prestigious American label Important Records and recently did a sneakily self-released third album, “The Grain”.
If you’ve not been before, Inkfolk is a temporary pop-up bar that takes over the basement of Hebden Bridge landmark Machpelah Works for weekend long events.
Because of the train times, we are starting a bit early, so the plan is:
Colin Potter 9pm
Last train to Manchester 10.34pm [venue right by train station, so you’ll have plenty of time]
Last train to Leeds 11.04pm
Tickets are £10 on the door but you can buy advance tickets here for £7 and you will receive a free mix CD on arrival. This time it’s “Live At Midgehole WMC”, a heavy krautrock DJ set recorded live.
