time:19:30
price: Headfirst Tickets

Information:

Cacophonous Sarcophagus and Bison Records are excited to bring experimental three piece Still House Plants to Bristol again (previously supported Richard Dawson at Fiddlers about 18 months back) in support of the release of their first LP, appropriately titled 'Long Play'. You can stream the entire thing here:

https://bison-records.bandcamp.com/releases

Combining visual strategies, free improvisation, UK garage and punk, Still House Plants build melodic hierarchies scaffolded around ambiguities and intimacy. Experimental songwriting is rarely so forthcoming, emotive, or approachable.
________

O YAMA O explores a certain domestic and democratic quality of everyday life, born through associations to folk music of Japan and a folding of myth, tradition, and routine; the non-spectacular and the sublime. Stream their debut album here:
https://manarecs.bandcamp.com/album/o-yama-o

Formed of musician and artist Rie Nakajima and Café OTO co-founder Keiko Yamamoto, the group has performed since 2014 at venues and festivals such as noshowspace, Ikon Gallery, Wysing Arts Centre, Supernormal, Borealis Festival, Mayhem, and allEars Festival.
Nakajima’s performance often focuses on the use of found and kinetic objects, using modest items such as rice bowls, toys, clockwork, balloons and small motors as instruments to create a “micro orchestra”. Elements are layered into impressive and immersive atmospheres. Yamamoto alternatively floats and charges through this with body and voice; chanting, incanting, thundering, whispering, stamping on the floor."

Support comes from Bristol's own EP/64 - live subtle wild improvisation with variable geometry. Formed by raw vocalist Dali de Saint Paul. Once Dali dreamt of a band that played 64 gigs and then stopped, "Ephemeral Project 64"... and so far, that is the only plan they adopt, the rest is spontaneous and free.

Tickets available from Headfirst Bristol at £5.

+++ Schwet DJs filling in the gaps.
