RAMMEL CLUB #76 - Chicaloyoh + Cheval Scintillantes + Annwn.

Rammel Club presents:

►CHICALOYOH

'Chicaloyoh is Alice Dourlen’s solo project. Creating music between soundscape exploration and intimate contemplation, Chicaloyoh is a mix of guitar, keyboards and percussions from distant and various horizons. Chicaloyoh is a one woman band that will attract those who like the priestess singings of Inca Ore or Nico. Together with High Wolf she plays as Woodoo Mount Sister, who toured Europe and the USA last summer. Chicaloyoh has already released tapes on Bumtapes, Dial square tapes, Clay Ruby’s (from Burial Hex and Second Family Band) label Brave Mysteries, and more recently, full-length LP's on the french label Faunasabbatha and Shelter Press.'

►CHEVAL SCINTILLANTES
'Cheval scintillantes is the solo project of Sophie Bernadou, She plays cello in very personal ways, she uses some delays and plays also pizzicato. If you like the tragic atmosphere in the movie of Roman Polanski "La jeune fille et la mort" you will like it for sure! drama vibes and Chills assured! She released her first tape on the english label "Was ist das" few month ago'

RAMMEL CLUB #74
SUNDAY 13TH MARCH
HARBINGER SOUND AND RAMMEL CLUB PRESENT
► MARK WYNN  ► LEFT HAND CUTS OFF THE RIGHT ► YOL

► MARK WYNN
"After having the NME announce him as "one to watch for 2015" Mark Wynn promptly quit music. Harbinger Sound spent the summer coaxing him out from early retirement and the result is "The Singles" album. A compilation of 18 tracks culled from two years worth of limited self-released CDs. Wynn's scattershot avant-skank acoustic gobshitting blends despair, bleakness and humour. It then pulls apart any worthless comparisions to The Fall, Wreckless Eric, Patrik Fitzgerald, etc with his irreverent, awkward but smart lo-fi songs. After spending the autumn touring with the Sleaford Mods , Wynn is now back in the game as one to watch for 2016"

https://markwynn.bandcamp.com/

► LEFT HAND CUTS OFF THE RIGHT
"Left Hand Cuts off the Right is the moniker for sound artist and experimental musician, Robbie Judkins. The project is an outlet for exploratory methods and composition most often found in music concrete, minimalism, noise and improvisation. His work has been featured in the Wire Magazine, NTS Radio, Resonance FM and at the University of Central Lancashire."
https://lefthandcutsofftheright.bandcamp.com/

► YOL
"Yol’s live deliveries appear to be born from a dysfunctional ability to express rage at planet Fuck Up. Part Tourettes sufferers spastic squawks, part scraped fork tine on rusty pipe, part mop bucket clatter. To see him live is to see his neck tendons stretch to Deirdre Barlow proportions whilst screaming seemingly stream of consciousness words at a 90 degree angle to the floor. Bent double he attacks bits of tin and kitchen utensils with a rabid intensity that makes you wonder if he is indeed in the midst of a convulsive fit. "

RAMMEL CLUB #75
SATURDAY 26TH MARCH
HARBINGER SOUND AND RAMMEL CLUB PRESENT
► CONSUMER ELECTRONICS ► CIRCUIT BREAKER ► GUTTERSNIPE

► CONSUMER ELECTRONICS
"Punk/electro/techno-noise trio Consumer Electronics return with an album of all-new studio material, following on from last year's acclaimed "Estuary English" LP and this year's "Repetition Reinforcement" 12" on Diagonal.
Housed in a sleeve featuring stunning cover artwork by Tokyo-based artist Trevor Brown, "Dollhouse Songs" further chronicles frontman Philip Best's trawl through the seedy thoroughfares of crumbling Tory Britain.
"Learn Your Fucking Place" sneers Best in trademark-style, aping the austerity mongers of Britain's current right wing junta. Ably assisted on dark cracked electronics by Sarah Froelich and stunningly produced by noise/beat guru Russell Haswell, this latest instalment in CE's state-of-the-nation polemics is sure to be keenly anticipated.
Featuring seven new studio tracks, 'History Of Sleepwalking', 'Knives Cut', 'Condition Of A Hole', 'Nothing Natural', 'The Push', 'Colour Climax' and 'Murder Your Masters' (the last track previously surfacing briefly as an ultra-rare gig only 7"), CE now features a twin vocal attack from the Best/Froelich husband-and-wife team, a furious tide of words spat out over a chaotic spew of mangled beats, bracing synths and state-of-the-art noise generation."
https://soundcloud.com/consumer_electronics


► CIRCUIT BREAKER
"Terrifying honed to a tee – this London duo dip between the fall, suicide and the pop group for an aural assault full of post punk gall. Cold drum machines meet whirling, near psychedelic synths in a way that martin rev or even silver apples would be proud of before flicking to brutal synthetic attacks all under sociopolitical (yet never pandering) barked and sung lyrics. this is the fevered nightmare of the psychedelic revival – completely inorganic and overwhelmingly powerful and loud mutated post punk."

Rammel Club #73 - Thursday 28th January 2015 - ANLA COURTIS►PIERCY/HALLATT►NEGATIVE MIDAS TOUCH


Rammel Club presents:

►ANLA COURTIS
https://invisiblecityrecords.bandcamp.com/album/microtonal-drifts
Rammel Club are thrilled to announce the fairly imminent descent of Anla Courtis to an ice bitten Nottingham this coming January. Hailing from Argentina, Courtis has created a prolific catalogue of recordings and performed in every corner of the world, bringing his own unrelenting talents for sound experimentation to every scenario, object and instrument that he can get his hands on.
We have absolutely no idea at the present time what to expect from Anla on his upcoming tour, but we are excited and totally backed up to the eyeballs with hot quotations, audio links and tantalising videos to share with you over the coming weeks.
“…one of the most active musical minds around” THE WIRE (UK)
“ a composer with an insatiable thirst for experimentation and different forms of expression” TOKAFI ( Germany )
“a true mastermind of noisescapes and sonic abstractions” IEM Magazine ( Russia )

►PIERCY/HALLATT
www.waspswasps.blogspot.co.uk
A second time live collaboration between Leeds based Kieron Piercy (Spoils and Relics / Harbinger Sound / Second Sleep) and Nottingham based Benjamin Hallatt (KIKSGFR / Murder Cult / Strange Rules).
The first collaboration between this pair focussed on stripped to the bone minimal modular synth glitches, subsonic bass and bent out of shape frequency interference and we are expecting to hear further explorations into the same terrain.

►NEGATIVE MIDAS TOUCH
One-woman Sheffield-based power electronics/industrial sounds, for your listening pleasure/displeasure.

Rammel Club #71 -- Weds 12th August 2015 -- Flamingo Creatures + Daniel Voigt + Yerba Mansa w/ Was Ist Das? Djs

Poster by Larry Crywater

Playfully improvised outer zones from Germany... like a sonification of the bit from Aguirre where Klaus Kinski is delirious and on a raft over-run by monkeys.

► FLAMINGO CREATURES (Free Improv, Electro-Acoustics - Berlin/Cologne)

Ruth-Maria Adam and Ronnie Oliveras have been around as part of the Datashock collective for quite a few years now, but their adventures as a duo are mostly undiscovered. Flamingo Creatures combining fearless experimentalism with a great sense of humour and an intoxicating playfulness in their approach to music making. With the help of electronics, bells, a violin and various percussion instruments the couple develops musical dialogues that speak to you in the most handsome way one can think of. Like Hans-Joachim Roedelius waltzing with Joan La Barbara while Smegma play (quietly) in the back.

https://flamingocreatures.bandcamp.com/
https://flamingosandothercreatures.wordpress.com/flamingo-creatures/

► DANIEL VOIGT (Tape Experiments, Drone Soundscapes, Fieldrecordings - Frankfurt).

Augmented by effect pedals & mixer treatments Daniel Voigt blends a Musique Concrète approach (cutting up tapes and looping sounds with the help of several walkmen) with the cosmic aesthetics of Krautrock to make his music sound like the love child of Delia Derbyshire and Klaus Schulze. His music was released on various international tape labels, such as Digitalis, Hobo Cult, Skell LLC & Cosmic Winnetou.

Voigt is also the man behind the SicSic Tape label, a home port for a lot of outer limits travellers that are sharing the vision for deep zoned-out music & DIY culture.

► YERBA MANSA (Free Rock/Improv Drums/Gtr Duo - Manchester)

"Edwin Stevens (Irma Vep, Sex Hands, Klaus Kinski etc) and Andrew Cheetham (ABC trio, Birchall/Cheetham duo etc) are two of Manchester's most prolific purveyors of raging, outer-limits rock-ism. Both members of free-rock army Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura as well as countless other projects, they take a similar blueprint for their head-to-head skyscraping duo, only with a singularity of heavy chord chug that aligns them with Gown or even Michael Flower & Chris Corsano. Truly mind blowing." - Nick Mitchell, Golden Lab Records, 2015

Was Ist Das? will also be joining us to play some records and turn it into a real party!

Rammel Club #70 -- Tue 21st July 2015 -- C Joynes + Nick Jonah Davis + Surfacing

Poster by Greg Dyke

► C JOYNES

“His epigrammatic re-castings and re-readings of widely-travelled folk melodies and rhythms from a variety of traditions suggest shared memories that might be intensely universal while seeming strangely out of reach." KEVIN MACNEIL BROWN, DUSTED MAGAZINE

“As much Conlon Nancarrow and Ali Farka Toure as Blind Lemon Jefferson, the compositional mind at work here can take apparently disparate threads of modernism and ethnic tradition and treat them as though they were all archaic blues styles learnt from dusty 78s.” BRUCE RUSSELL, THE WIRE

Drawing on source materials from field recordings and local cassettes gathered from around the world, and weaving this together with his Anglicised take on Primitivism, Joynes has released 6 albums to date, including, most recently, ‘The Wild Wild Berry’, a collaboration with singer Stephanie Hladowski (fROOTS Editor's Choice Album Of The Year 2012, MOJO Top 5 Folk Albums 2012). He has played extensively across the UK and Europe, sharing bills with performers including: Shirley Collins, Alasdair Roberts, A Hawk And A Hacksaw, Martin Carthy, Richard Dawson, Alvarius B, Jack Rose, Josephine Foster, Sir Richard Bishop and Steffan Basho-Junghans.

https://cjoynes.tumblr.com/
https://cjoynes.bandcamp.com/

► NICK JONAH DAVIS

Local favourite who's music draws on the modal tunings and free wheeling spirit of British trailblazers Bert Jansch and Nick Drake, as well as pre-war blues and the ever deepening post-Takoma tradition. 

Nick has released two albums, House of Dragons on Lanchashire and Somerset (2015), and Of Time and Tides on the seminal American label Tompkins Square (2011). He was featured on the fourth volume of the latter's ongoing guitar compilation, Imaginational Anthem, and their tribute album to Michael Chapman, Oh Michael, Look What You've Done.

https://nickjonahdavis.com/

►  SURFACING

Drawing upon a range of electronic and avant-garde music practices (especially spaces where these distinctions become less clear cut such as techno, industrial and dub). There's a strong, and unapologetic, intellectual and political dimension tackling surveillance, cultural hierarchies and sinuous forms of oppression. In this sense it is also a folk music, though a contemporary rendering, allowing for more than a few comparisons to projects such as Einstürzende Neubauten. An uncertain music for uncertain times.

MESA OF THE LOST WOMEN ft. JUNKO / SIMON RAVEN / THIN RAFT / THE SONS OF REST

Poster/flyer by Line Vangrunderbeeck
► MESA OF THE LOST WOMEN (FR) featuring JUNKO (JP - HIJOKAIDAN)
*Finally!* Japanese noise screamo queen JUNKO has always been high on the Rammel wishlist and after numerous failed attempts we finally managed to drag her to Nottingham with MESA OF THE LOST WOMEN from France. This is the first UK tour of this trio and the only gig in the UK outside London, wahey! :-)

JUNKO's legendary status dates back to the ear shredding performances with improv-noise group HIJOKAIDAN and over the years she recorded with Kylie Minoise, Sachiko, Sutcliffe Jugend, Masayoshi Urabe, Michel Henritzi and somehow she hasn't lost her voice ...

MESA OF THE LOST WOMEN is the free-core duet of Yves Botz (DUSTBREEDERS) on noise guitar and Christophe Sorro on free drumming.
From 2004, in successive spiritual unities with Masayoshi Urabe, Jac Berrocal, Cathy Heyden or our favorite scream-queen JUNKO (from legendary Japanese noise-unit Hijokaidan), we never stop to "remember how free we were" ...

► SIMON RAVEN
http://www.nevarnomis.com/
Simon Raven, born 1978, Gotham, Nottingham. Currently based at Primary, Nottingham. Simon works in performance and film. He has recently applied to do PhD in Disability Arts Criticism at Northumbria University. To prepare for JUNKO, Simon will amplify and play with the sounds of various objects, including a silver egg pregnancy charm, a touch lamp, a roll of cellotape, an old violin...

► THIN RAFT
http://www.thinraft.co.uk/
Skeletal solo electric guitar from Lincolnshire exile, Charlie Ulyatt. Stripped down melody, drone, disintegration and discord.

► THE SONS OF REST
The Sons of Rest, two thirds of the Molten Gods forged anew. Electric improvisations of oscillating guitars, pyroclastic effects and retirement drone.

WOVEN SKULL / CORE OF THE COALMAN / SOPHIE COOPER / FRIEND OF A FRIEND


 WOVEN SKULL
http://wovenskull.tumblr.com/
http://wovenskull.bandcamp.com/

"In 2008, Woven Skull first began playing together in a house owned by two of the members and located at the foot of Sheemore (a hill where two factions of fairies clash in an annual battle) in the empty sparse countryside of northwest Ireland. These atmospheric surroundings helped to forge their music which has been described as “minimal, repetitive, distorted, ugly and beautiful in one”. The trio spent several years experimenting with combinations of instrumentation, household objects, kitchen utensils, seashells, footsteps, chimes, recordings of cats purring and frogs mating while developing a sound that after a recent set was described as “a Turkish Velvet Underground.”
Woven Skull have recorded in dark haunted woods, beside bottomless lakes, and in the attics of abandoned houses. Their upcoming LP, “Lair of the Glowing Bantling,” is their first studio album and captures a sound that's more in line with their live performance than past releases which have been a mix of lo-fi practice tapes, outdoor recordings and segments from collaborative sets"

 CORE OF THE COALMAN
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Core-of-the-Coalman/44330470886
https://featheredcoyoterecords.bandcamp.com/album/new-chords

"The solo project of sound artist Jorge Boehringer, consists of continuity and discontinuity for viola, voice and circuits on the border between order and chaos.
Sonically diverse and at times explosive in texture, Core of the Coalman emphasizes the physicality of sound in its synesthetic relationships between ear, mind, and environment.
Performances including feedback-driven yodel triggers, descending tympanic pressures implying sexual interface, and extended upwardly-mobile Carnasitic arrays, with ornaments, have been featured on all kinds of concert programs."

 SOPHIE COOPER
http://sophiecoopermusic.com/
https://sophiecooper.bandcamp.com/

“I hear Cooper slipping off the edge, detaching from the original premise and then losing it via the distraction of side roads and epiphanic tangents. Delicate shapes spiral out of control like music box ballerinas set spinning too fast, and despite the aquamarine gleam that covers the folken flutter of “Klias Wetlands” in its opening few minutes, an inky distortion still manages to find a gap in the seams through which to spill, turning the music into a beautifully bad origami of wrong folds and symmetry offset. I am thoroughly enlivened by the freedom of her music. Every equilibrium disturbance is an invitation; an opportunity to reconsider and repurpose, free to be indulged until the song bloats to the point of bursting. Excesses of warmth and echo are to be trusted as friends – they are beauty enhancers, coaxing melodies out of restraint until they cover themselves in wild frocks of found sound, accordion ribbons and sung notes that rise and fall like the very breaths that bore them. I shut my eyes and slacken myself, permitting Our Aquarius to lead me forth without hesitation or question.”

 FRIEND OF A FRIEND
https://soundcloud.com/friendofafriend

“Friend of a Friend is the solo project of Alastair D. Smith, who also plays in Nottingham band Blunt Mountains. Friend of a Friend’s music assembles elements of the organic and the artificial – analogue synth drones meet stringed instruments, found sounds, and digital pulses. These sources coalesce to form an end result that feels like the past and the future bleeding into the present."

FATHER MURPHY ⁞ RAINBOW GRAVE ⁞ NADIR

Poster/flyer by Kathryn Cooper

The Music Exchange and Rammel Club presents:

► FATHER MURPHY (Italy)
http://fathermurphy.org/

A truly unique band, around since the late nineties they have kept developing with each record they create. Genre? Ehhh... let's say Psychedelic occult slow tempo Italian prog-rock doom... read on:

Stripped down to just two after deciding they’d done as much with drums as they could, they create music that sounds like it could never be made by a two piece. A couple constantly touring, as well as being dedicated to reinventing and developing their sound; they are equal part industrial, soundtrack and prog and very Italian. So bold and inventive. Recommended by stellar record shop The Music Exchange as well as a wide range of artists including Michael Gira, Julian Cope and Deerhoof. They’ve toured the US twice recently with Deerhoof and XIu Xiu.

► RAINBOW GRAVE
https://soundcloud.com/rainbow-grave

Rainbow Grave from Birmingham (ex Backwards). Not seen them yet but they are playing loads and we keep hearing about them. Backwards were amazing when they played Supersonic.
(I've seen them and they are great J.B)

► NADIR
https://nadirmurk.bandcamp.com/

Nadir brings heavy murk for sludgy and spacey times. If you haven’t seen them before you should definitely check them out – Psychedelic and experimental doom with a theremin. Features members of Endless Grinning Skulls, Moloch, Beast as God and Bismuth who are all amazing so you know what to expect.
