PULSE

PULSE at The Old Fruitmarket in Glasgow, October 3rd 2014.

PULSE

A great evenings entertainment, with FOUR artists/bands for a mere 10 quid! Sadly under-attended though (what’s wrong with you people?) maybe it was the miserable weather.

First up was Matthew Collings, who did a solid and noisy set

Next to go was a fabulous set by Gazelle Twin, who looked really spooky in her hoodie and mask like some sort of “inner city kid” Dr Who monster! Kinda creepy but cool with it! ;)

Closely followed with an amazing set by Scanner aka Robin Rimbaud which was loud, noisy and beatsy (I was expecting something in a more ambient vein!)

Headlining the night were the brilliant Wrangler , headed by ex-Cabaret Voltaire’s Stephen Mallinder, also a great big beat driven and noisy set – and lots of flashing images and green  LASERS!

Fuck Buttons

ticket

Just remembered in time to get a ticket for this – on the same day as the gig!!!

The support band were fucking awful – three people playing in a different key, tempo/beat and badly mixed to boot don’t know what they were called – don’t want to! But…

Fuck Buttons were amazing & very, VERY LOUD!!!

Unfortunately I snapped my video camera charger cable so had to use my stills camera instead, but it’s not too bad if a little dodgy on the sound 8-/

Only slightly late ….

Hello again!

I’m back after some hideous technical woes over the past couple of months, so ***should*** be posting more regularly again – huzzah!

… anyways I haven’t told you about the brilliaint gig by The Psychogeographical Commission, SECURITY and aistob on 8th February 2014 at The Old Hairdressers, GLASGOW, UK.

First up were aistob, who were a machinist/computer operator (Gordon?) & chanteuse (?) who did a rather excellent version of Bauhaus‘s Bela Lugosi’s Dead

Next up were the wonderful SECURITY (Joe Ahmed & P6) with their DEBUT gig!!!

and very wonderful it was too – as you can see below (only one slight technical hitch all night as well!)

 

(this track and more wonderfulness from their Bandcamp page – click on image or link above)

Hopefully more gigs in more places soon – watch this and other spaces!

Headlining the night were The Psychogeographical Commision performing the rather scary “Jack The Ripper” live for the last time. A sort of live soundtrack to imagery from 3(?) “Ripper” films.

Andy (with weird electronic thing) and Stuart (guitar/effects) of Psychomm

Unfortunately the projection/lighting wasn’t too great so no video – ***BUT*** you can get a DVD from them sometime soon from their website (click the images/link above)

more soon….. ;)

Carter Tutti – Harmonic Coaction 6

Carter Tutti performed Harmonic Coaction 6 the latest in the series of their site specific performances including field recordings and footage pertaining to the location of the performance. This gig was part of the University of Salford‘s Sonic Fusion 2013 festival.

 

The evening started with a screening of Mark Leckey‘s – Fiorucci made me Hardcore which I hadn’t realised is actually part of the University of Salford’s collection, full video below.

Holly Herndon fresh from San Fransisco, USA was the support act, I highly recommend you check her out live or indeed on vinyl, digital – whatever! Short clip from the show below.

And finally Carter Tutti performed Harmonic Coaction 6 – the UK premier for their Harmonic Coaction series of performances, a unique set inspired by the Salford location but with heavily manipulated audio and visual (projected onto a massive screen behind them). Two short clips below.
