Hot upcoming gigs

May Kasahara

Amazing wasn't it! Thanks to whoever put me onto them.
The fact that you could hear a pin drop when they did the acapella songs was very special. And I love the venue as it's so small!;):oldthumbsup:
;)
ETA it was at Electric Brixton
It was very special. Great sound quality in the venue as well.

They created such a big sound, and her voice is stellar.

Quite hungover this morning though :D :facepalm:

Just booked tickets for Reverend Horton Heat at the Garage in May! So chuffed, I've been waiting ages for him to play here again.

Sheer Mag are pretty "hot" at the moment, so I guess they are the main pull for this gig at DIY space in Peckham... Chubby And The Gang are who I am looking forward to most tho, their single is killller:

littleseb you may be interested in this, Atomic Suplex have just been offered a support slot for Guitar Wolf this Monday at Moth Club (ie tomorrow!)... this tour doesn't seem to have been publicised very much, I didn't know they were playing! good chance to see them in a nice venue.... also we were just discussing recording (finally), maybe we can all have a chat

I'm glad it's not just me that vicariously sends you to gigs at Oto I wish I could go to...
I mean he will actually be there... (you would be more than welcome if you are ever down and fancy something that's happening at OTO... generally happy to take a punt on stuff there...)

what was the verdict?
Rimarimba was excellent. Old dude in a pink shirt and a fishing hat. :cool:

Came on quite relaxed and said "Well I've been doing this for about 50 years but not really "live"" - and then played short bursts of 16 different elements and explained what they were (field recordings, bird song, treated guitar etc). Then played a live mix of them with a slide show of rural landsapces and stuff. It was great. :)

Michele Mercure was good as well but maybe a bit too polished in comparison - arch synth songs which sounded very 80s and projections of footage from 50s America. It was fun. :cool:

Minimum Waste / Maximum Joy
I've never gone as far as listening to Smell & Quim, though I approve of their chops and know several current & former members.

In 2007, Smell & Quim notoriously led to the cancellation of the entire Deaf Forever Festival in Leeds, after they started mutilating a pig's head on stage and attempted to set it on fire.

:cool:

I won't be able to come, but how about AMM doing a performance of a section of Cornelius Cardew's Treatise in a few weeks?

Cafe OTO → AMM / FORMANEX, Tuesday 26 November 2019, 7.30pm

Treatise is one of Cardew's graphic scores, which is worth having a look through - pages look like this...



(you can find a pdf of the entire score here)

I saw Sink Ya Teeth and a band called Big Joanie last night. Both amazing in their own way.

Also I am going to see Ben Watts in the spring. Will he be crap? Jeopardy!!! :D

I've seen Big Joanie and enjoyed them and tried to see them at simple things festival in Bristol but the venue they were playing in was too packed and they were only letting one in one out.....

The sound wasn't great last night but they really made me think which is pretty rare in a gig.

Actually I take that back about the sound. It was a sound I'm not used to and it probably also goes back to that thing about black women having to be twice as good to get anywhere, I'll admit if it was 3 white women I'd probably have been raving.
