POST FESTIVAL COMEDOWN CURES – PART 3: SUNDAY’S LINE UP

SUNDAY, 16th August -Todmorden Unitarian Church.
RAISING HOLY SPARKS

Well, you really can’t go wrong with the most Raising Holy Sparks album:

Already picked it up at the festival? Then get this epic double album:

TERRINE:
For a quick fix of more Terrine noise you really can’t go wrong with this name your price EP called “Mes seins plutôt que français” which seems to translate as “My breasts are rather French” but don’t quote me on that as I can barely manage my own language never mind that of our neighbours.

SAM MCLOUGHLIN

Mr.Mcloughlin’s set was, as usual, very new sounding. Its closest to the work he has put out under the name N.Racker but good luck finding any of that stuff, it sold out pretty fast. You can listen to some on the website http://www.nracker.co.uk/

GIRL SWEAT
FUCK YEAH! You know you need more. I hugely endorse “Live! The Drunk Clairvoyancy”, so much so that I put it out on tape last year but all copies of that went RIGHT FUCKING AWAY. But you can get a pay what you like download straight from the man himself:

WOVEN SKULL WITH CORE OF THE COALMAN

Woven Skull have a new album out on vinyl and download from:

When it comes to Core Of The Coalman I’m very partial to this release:

As for collaborative releases, there’s just been a self-titled tape for Feathered Coyote. Its been a regular staple of my DJ sets ever since but while the tape is long sold out, the download is pay what you can:

FLAMINGO CREATURES:

Ruth-Maria & Ronnie have put out a lot of split releases but this pay what you can download is for a long sold out album from Cosmic Winnetou:

LAURA CANNELL
Laura’s set at the festival drew heavily on her imminent new album “Beneath Swooping Talons”, which you can preview and preorder from

HELLVETE
If you missed out on the LPs on the merch table, Blackest Rainbow still have 12 copies left of this deep classic:

RICHARD DAWSON
Richard’s not on Bandcamp, but you can get his most recent album “Nothing Important” in all good record stores.

Oh and my DJ set at after-party? It’s now on mixcloud, celebrating 10 years of wasistdas.co.uk

10 by Was Ist Das? on Mixcloud

And the final line-up announcements are

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we ask you to sit down, put your feet up and light up a nice pipe of your favourite shag because we are about to do our final festival line-up announcements.

Let us begin with Richard Dawson, the man who has been having something of a break out year with sold out shows leaving delighted audiences. If you only know him for his records then you don’t really know him yet because he has mesmerising stage presence.

Kemper Norton’s sound is produced through employment of acoustic instrumentation and vocals but don’t be fooled, Kemper is not just about the folk music. With dance rhythms he’ll transform pastoral scenes into electronic dreams.

Terrine is the solo project of Claire Gapenne from French noise band Headwar. Her output so far as Terrine has leant heavily towards wild, noisy no wave rock assaults but with some way-out distorted experimental edges. She may as well be a band of five for the sonic riots she creates.

Hellvete is the solo project of Glen Steenkiste from Belgian cosmonauts Sylvester Anfang II. He explores deep, ornate dronespaces and has released for labels like Blackest Rainbow, Sloow Tapes, Eiderdown and (K-RAA-K)³. The architecture of the Church will serve as the perfect acoustics for a set like this. Prepare yourself to see through the roof.

Finally, we are very excited to be hosting a collaboration between ecstastic Irish drone trio Woven Skull and New York composer and string scraper Core Of The Coalman. This fantastic four previously collaborated on a blazing album on Feathered Coyote Records.

They join Andrew Liles/Maniac/Carl Stokes Trio, Ashtray Navigations, Chicaloyoh, Sam McLoughlin, Bird People, Lutine, Laura Cannell, Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, Girl Sweat, Daniel Voight, Flamingo Creatures, Ambrosia(@)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 with The Family Elan & The Bongoleeros at the superb Golden Lion pub, also the venue for our afterparties.
