Woven Skull & Yerba Mansa

— The Stag And Hounds
Outer-limits improvised trance rock from rural Ireland & Manchster
price: Headfirst Tickets


Cacophonous Sarcophagus presents an evening of live improv/psych/trance music in the ancient Court of Pie Poudre.

~Woven Skull~

Aonghus - Densely propulsive guitar
Natalia - Distorted mandola
Willie - Endless circular rhythms

Since 2008, the trio have forged music to reflect their habitat. Based in the empty sparse Irish countryside at the foot of Sheemore, 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.

“Cyclical rhythms, drone-based mantras the eerie creaks and haunted cries of the natural realm that surround them converge to form a dark and beguiling ritual magick.” – SUPERNORMAL

RIYL: Trad, Gras Och Stenar, Parson Sound, early Gnod, Sunburnt Hand of The Man, Vibracathedral Orchestra.

~Yerba Mansa~

Andrew Cheetham - Drums/Percussion
Edwin Stevens - Guitar/Vocals

Improv duo whom you may have seen playing with Irma Vep, Sex Hands, Klaus Kinski, ABC trio, Birchall/Cheetham duo etc.
Two of Manchester's most prolific purveyors of raging, outer-limits rock-ism. Both members of free-rock army Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, they take a similar blueprint for their head-to-head skyscraping duo, only with a singularity of heavy chord chug."

RIYL: Flower/Corsano, Gunslingers, Horse Lords, 75 Dollar Bill, Rangda

+++ Schwet DJs playing hard trance all night.
More TBC...maybe
