The Rammel Club and Wandrin' Tsar present a night of guitar wrangling

Steffen Basho-Junghans (Berlin in Germany)

The blurb says he’s a master of the six and twelve string guitar and I’m in no way going to dispute that, the last time I saw him play was at an Instal fest in Glasgow a few years ago and he had the audience eating out of his hand. When he stopped playing it was one of those rapt could-hear-a-pin-drop moments, which he duly then defused by telling us about going to see Tangerine Dream when he was a kid. This fellow has absorbed the usual Takoma influences and come out the other side with a personal style that manages to beguile and challenge in equal measures. We’re really looking forward to seeing this guy.

Plum Slate (Liverpool)

" Reverberant open-string/no-string improvisation for acoustic guitar." Hell, I’m not even quite sure what that means but it’s got my mid-section a-tingle already. You may recognise Stuart from such bands as Smear Campaign, Stuckometer, Barbarians and his label Total Vermin.

Bonsai Projects (Nottingham)

When I first met Ali, I knew him firstly to be an extraordinary illustrator. When he popped round for a cup of tea and informed us he was going to do some music I didn’t think much of it but then he turned out to be brilliant as that as well. What a cunt eh? They say “somnambulist folk, guttural blues and comedic ramblings” and I’d probably agree.
