Claire Potter
Is an artist addressing modes of reading, speaking and writing, with a focus on when these actions run into difficulty. Audio has been documented on Chocolate Monk, and with Bridget Hayden (Vibracathedral Orchestra) in 2015 on Fort Evil Fruit. Claire recently completed the Polyphonic residency at the Wysing Arts Centre, and their latest book, Round that way, was published by Ma Bibliotheque, London.

Polly Hardy
Is a solo musician making simple, eerie and fragile dark folk. At times reminiscent of Marrisa Nadler or Sibylle Baier - with haunting vocals and elegant guitar she makes music that, despite its minimal and often quiet content reaches heights of mesmerising volume.

RAMMEL CLUB# 84 - BROOD MA, BEN GWILLIAM, CXLO, Friday 25th August @ Chameleon, Nottingham.



Rammel Club #084
---------------------------
Brood Ma
One of the key architects of the Quantum Natives media collective. Coming to The Chameleon off the back of events at Issue Project Room in New York, and the ICA in London. His latest record 'Daze' on Tri Angle Records was described as "a collection of perverted smash hits in overdrive, a keyed up, obsessively concerned, hyperbolic exaggeration" Tinymixtapes. "Rarely does any singular genre tag capture the uncanniness, or uncategorizable Brood Ma-ness, of the producer's industrial synths, grime-oriented beats, and ominous sub-bass" Pitchfork. 
https://soundcloud.com/broodma
http://quantumnatives.com/

Ben Gwilliam
'is an artist whose work spans sound, film, installation & performance. His work explores how the mechanics of sound media reflect & distort human perception, often manipulating the space(s) & moment of experience. His fascination drives a curiosity that forms as durational performances and installations, film & video works and writing.'
Gwilliam's performance at a Hideous Porter event a couple of years ago was spellbinding, leaving spectators at a loss to the means and the wonder of a freezer box and few portable tape recorders. For this performance all we know is it will incorporate light.
http://www.thosesoundsbetween.co.uk/

CXLO
Hails from Cornwall and now resides in London, her idiosyncratic style of electronic music with it's basis in glossy synthesis and stuttering rhythms would perhaps not sound out of place on the likes of Hemlock Recordings or Opal Tapes. Earlier in August she will be performing at the EAVI event at the ICA.

BRB>VOICECOIL
"Kev Wilkinson is something of a local legend, having pursued his BRB project in various guises on and off for the past quarter century. Starting out as Big Road Breaker and also being the brains behind the Muza Muza label (that released the first Jazzfinger output all those years ago, plus Ashtray Navigations and many more), his identities have gradually evolved over time though his predilections have remained the subsonic, the garagantuan (sonically) and the indefinably disturbing." -Tusk Festival.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwbX_-iSJt8&ab_channel=kevinwilkinson
https://muzamuza.bandcamp.com/

ALI ROBERTSON
"One half of Edinburgh’s absurdist sputter and clink duo Usurper and head honcho of Giant Tank – Ali will be performing solo on the night. Having dabbled and drooled his way through improvised collaborations with the likes of Blood Stereo, Phil Minton and Adam Bohman – his combination of avant sound poetry, scuttled performance art and garbled Scots vernacular will provide a fine lubricant." - Braw Gigs.

https://duffandrobertson.bandcamp.com/


SPOILS & RELICS
"... the enigmatic Spoils & Relics; lay out their wares for all to see. These include all manner of hard to identify sounds that could have been made inside a deep sea divers helmet at 20,000 fathoms. Here we have shortwave trawls picking up single, impossible to translate words, slight squeaks, wheezes and heaves, sounds of budgie cages being shaken in empty houses, lo-fi electronic squawk, bottles being kicked around a stone floor, parps culled from small boxes with switches on them, electro-acoustic dub, dried peas rattling around a Quality Street tin, a mass beetle exodus ... or none of the above." - Harbinger Sound.

RAMMEL CLUB #82.5 - Gnod, Mai Mai Mai, Bismuth @ The Maze, Nottingham. Friday 9th June.


Damn You!, The 593 Collective and Rammel Club come together to present a post-election blow-out with:


GNOD

Truly the most inspiring group/collective/unit to emerge from the planet in recent memory. 10 minutes in their company will convince you that you have the power to do anything. Mentioning 'work ethic' brings to mind worthy-but-dull bands churning it out - GNOD work harder than anyone but the results are anything but dull. They are constant creators, constant agitators, constant developers and their output has such stylistic variation that the idea of musical genres is rightfully condemned to the bin where it always belonged.
The internet describes them as a 'krautrock collective from Manchester' but fuck the internet: this is music with exceptional power and community that shifts and changes before you. It is overwhelming and bewildering but always completely inclusive and inspiring. It is 'post punk' in the true sense of the term.

Plus

MAI MAI MAI (IT)

"Born on a little island of the Aegean Sea around 30 years ago.
Since childhood, he followed his parents around Europe and the Near East, assimilating the different cultures, atmospheres and sonorities of the places he was involuntarily taken to. Short periods of time which were intense enough to leave indelible traces. This project is the transposition of those experiences into music and sounds: a mix of drone and ambient, steamy rhythmics, field recordings and sound-scapes which lead us to ancient and arcane ages, on the border between east and west.
After wandering for so long, he's now living in a little village on the Ionic Coast, in the South of Italy"

BISMUTH

Bismuth is the duo of Tanya Byrne and Joe Rawlings and is an exploration of amplified sound designed to rattle the onlooker into submission.

"For convenience sake, think if instead of loving weed and Jesus, OM had taken some kind of acid laced Ketamine, and then asked a banshee to provide vocals."

RAMMEL CLUB #80

►HARBINGER SOUND + RAMMEL CLUB PRESENT

NEGATIVE SCANNER (US)
Negative Scanner have been destroying rooms in Chicago’s vibrant DIY since 2012, earning well-deserved accolades as one of the cities best live bands. Their electrifying debut album finds the band taking on all comers; guitarist/vocalist Rebecca Valeriano-Flores’ gutteral howl & lyrics have gained confidence over the course of the band‘s previous two singles in 2014 (their debut on Trouble In Mind & it’s follow-up on Tall Pat Records). The band (guitarist Matt Revers, bassist Nick Beaudoin & drummer Tom Cassling) have evolved into a lurching, post-punk tornado furiously spinning into near-chaos but never leaving the band’s capable control. The album’s opener “Ivy League Asshole” sets the tone - feral & ragged guitars chug over the rhythm section & Flores’ manic yelp spits out lyrics borne out of confusion, agression, domination & submission to life, living, lovers & beyond. The album‘s eleven tracks in 28 minutes fly by the listener, threatening whiplash but begging to be replayed. Negative Scanner’s s/t debut was recorded by the band themselves in their practice space, mixed by Mike Lust’s Phantom Mobile Unit & mastered by Australian legend Mikey Young (Total Control/Eddy Current Suppression Ring).

►MICRODEFORM (UK)
Microdeform creates exploratory, ambient transmissions, building hypnotic, looped layers of improvised instrumental passages, tape treatments and live turntable sampling from old records, creating a mood that is alternately blissful, meditative, cacophonous and intense. The result is a heady trip of cosmic oscillations and mesmeric dark sorcery shrouded in mist, drifting slowly into the ether.

► GUTTERSNIPE
One of the best things to come out of Leeds in years, had to pull out of the Consumer Electronics gig a few months ago due to injury. Disrupted rock compositions on electric guitar, prepared drum kit, electronics and dual vocals. New-Wave-Of-British-Hysterical-Mania.
“Queer absurdist no wave noise rock abstract freak out. This is hard bop right here!” – Maximumrocknroll
https://guttersnipe.bandcamp.com/releases

► COLOSSLOTH
From the wild hedgerows and deep dark rivers of the Midlands, Leicestershire’s Colossloth makes psychogeographic maladies and invocations to warm the heart of the discerning and intrepid psychonaut. Phonic seeds planted in Blackened soil fertilised by visceral imagination. A fugitive ambience for those seeking solace in the unexpected.
From supporting the likes of Tim Hecker and Wrangler, Colossloth’s music alternates between the brooding and abrasive to the transcendental and enchanted. With nods to a multitude of genres – from industrial and ethnic tribalism to caustic electronica, it’s spirit can be found crucified in between the anode and cathode of occult circuitry, transmitting across modern England whispered messages from the lips of the old gods of Albion.
