Rammel Club & Harbinger Sound present:
JOOKLO DUO (it) meets THURSTON MOORE (us)
SPOILS & RELICS
Virginia Genta (saxophones) and David Vanzan (drums) have been bringing their intense and mesmerizing music all over the world since 2003 (about five-hundred concerts in Europe, USA and Russia - last passing in Nottingham goes back to 2011 @ Rammel Club) and captivating any kind of audience. The duo's work is a totally personal research that has been described as the most powerful expression in “free music” nowadays, transcending every kind of definition and going straight to the source of energy.
Tonight JOOKLO DUO are joined by Ecstatic Peace! label boss THURSTON MOORE on guitar. This is the first live collaboration of this trio and one of the 2 only scheduled dates.
► SPOILS & RELICS
"a mutating web of feedback, choral echoes and lo-fi loops of various squeaking, rattling found sounds, settling gently into certain texture combinations before teasing the stasis through jolts of pitch bend or slow fades into somewhere else. It’s a real nightmare collage: one minute it’s a blast of screaming electronics, like someone tampering with the cockpit controls, and the next it’s tornado of factory noise and alien sex. Musique concrete for the mind’s darker, more paranoid recesses, with a gorgeously sparse latter half of noise squeals fed through some sort of astronaut intercom." -- Jack Chuter / ATTN magazine
► GELBA (it)
GELBA is an improv project founded in 2011 by Michele Mazzani (tape loops, guitar, keyboards) and Matteo Poggi (guitar, fx, tapes). The duo performs an intense set based on visionary field recordings caught on high mountain ridges, complex guitar solutions, and arcane tape loops reprocessed to infinity, creating a wall of sounds that alternate with more evocative and dreamy parts. Pure magma for your ears.
► DAVE JACKSON
DAVE JACKSON has been breathing in and out through his alto saxophone for 2 decades and during this time collaborated with plenty of fellow high spirits in the experimental/free improv/noise music scene (including Eddie Prevost, Chris Corsano, Rhodri Davies, John Edwards, Dave Birchall, Kelley Jones, but the list is muuuuuch longer!). He's also one of the forces behind Solar Fire Trio.
"Dave Jackson free-squeeks the alto sax into Patty Waters/Yoko Ono’s attic..." -- Julian Cope
"classic squee-pileage in the post-ESP tradition..... loose sonic collisions and interwoven blather in ripely extended fire-form. Solid, savage blurt." -- Thurston Moore / Arthur Magazine
Notts powerpsychkraut supergroup featuring DNA from Prize Pets/Sisterland. No online presence, the HANG virus is spreading via oral transmission (…in a “word of mouth” sense...) and the buzz from their past sweltering gigs with Larsen from Italy and Kagoule has not died out. We want more!
► DJ NAIL
Underground house producer and admired cult DJ with an incredibly wide/eclectic music taste. Every genre goes (as proven during his kittiwake radio sessions) which means he's your worst potential opponent during a pub music quiz - you'll lose! But tonight we're all winners :-)
