POST FESTIVAL COMEDOWN CURES – PART 2: SATURDAY’S LINE UP

SATURDAY
DESMADRADOS SOLDADOS DE VENTURA
The Manchester noise rock orchestra who started things off have a new slab of vinyl out on Golden Lab Records: http://goldenlabrecords.com/

ISNAJ DUI
Katie’s new album “Dioptrics” was a big seller at the merch stall but if you missed out you can still buy the handmade CDR or the download from:

If you already grabbed one at the event and are now hungry for more already then I’d suggest “After The Flood” a 20 minute piece made in response to the 2012 Hebden Bridge floods. Very apt as Todmorden came a couple of inches from flooding on the Friday of the festival. CDR long gone but only £3 for a download

DANIEL VOIGT
Daniel has only just started to use his actual name so I’m going to have to point you to a favourite of mine recorded under his previous alias of Hering und seine sieben Sachen. Name your price

GUTTERSNIPES

Guttersnipes are a brand new band with only this debut EP to offer to you. However, download only is name your price and the handmade CDRs are only £2!

AMBROSIA(@)

You can download Ambrosia(@)’s newest release “Neacute Veacute” from http://www.bombshop.org/projects/ambrosia-neacute-veacute/ and also play the retro computer game created to celebrate its release

BIRD PEOPLE
Bird People have built up a formidable and extensive discography but I’m gonna be totally corrupt and point you to their newest release which I’ve put out on cassette: http://wasistdas.co.uk/label/bird-people-constellations/

KEMPER NORTON

Kemper Norton’s bandcamp has this rare EP for a nice price:

and also a series of Unrequited EPs for free

CHICALOYOH

Most of Chicaloyoh’s set came from her new EP “Les Sept Salons”. If you forgot to pick up a vinyl on the night it can still be bought from the label:

Got that but want to know where to go next? Her 2013 album “Folie Sacrée” made our end of year list

ANDREW LILES, MANIAC and CARL STOKES
Tor Ist Das! was the first time these fine fellows ever played together as a trio – literally. So there is nothing of them as a trio but Liles has a very limited EP which features a track with Maniac and a remix of Cancer, Carl’s band. You can get it from: http://www.andrewliles.com/discography/fckwit-e-p/

new announcements for Tor Ist Das! Festival line-up

The Tor Ist Das? Festival (August 14th to 16th) is ready to tease you with another set of new announcements for our line up. You may recall we told you we had Nurse With Wound’s Andrew Liles playing the festival with Maniac from Mayhem? Yeah, that Mayhem – the Norwegian black metal pioneers! Well now they have expanded into a trio with the addition of Carl Stokes on drums. That’s Carl Stokes of seminal UK thrash band Cancer (also played with Assert, Unseen Terror and Current 93). How you like that?

More? How about some tape experiments, drone soundscapes and field recordings from Daniel Voigt? You might know him better by his previous recording name Hering und seine sieben Sachen which he has just retired or for his label Sic Sic which has managed a mighty output since 2009 of quality releases.

Or how about the mind-pummelling sonic assault of Girl Sweat? A one man onslaught somewhere between The Cramps, Cabaret Voltaire, early Swans and John Spencer Blues Explosion. BANG!

Considering there’s still early bird tickets left at £17 for the whole weekend, you’d be a chump to miss this one. Early birds can be bought from http://wasistdas.co.uk/toristdas/tickets

So, they join a line-up that already includes Ashtray Navigations, Chicaloyoh, Bird People, Lutine, Laura Cannell, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura and Isnaj Dui. Two full days of folk, drone, experimental music and noise in the beautiful setting of Todmorden Unitarian Church. Plus a warm up party on the Friday and after parties at the superb Golden Lion pub. All for £10 less than it costs to go see UB40 in Halifax. Can’t say fairer than that?
