"...(the Rude Mechanicals) play with a commitment and ability that results in favourable comparisons to their admitted influences Frank Zappa and Captain Beefheart. Their live set simultaneously leaves new converts petrified, quizzical, musically refreshed and convulsed at the bizarre outrageousness of it all..." Lee McFadden, The Morning Star
" ...my latest discovery, Rude Mechanicals, ...a head-on collision between James Brown, The Cramps & Japanese Noh Theatre, that had everyone on the dance floor."..
MC Rebbe, the Rapping Rabbi
JOWE HEAD AND THE DEMI-MONDE
"Jowe Head has continued to push the creative envelope to the very limits of its conception since joining Swell Maps in the late 70s. He & his cohorts have subsequently been blamed for the whole shebang/movement we lovingly refer to as DIY/Lo-Fi." www.trakmarx.com
"Jowe Head is backed by a new band called The Demi-Monde ...The sound has a psychedelic feel with a blend of electronic and acoustic sounds, as well as a pan-european folk influence and Indian and Moorish elements." www.televisionpersonalities.co.uk
"Then it was time for Poltergroom, the definite highlight of the evening for me. It was a hell of a lot of fun. Fast... original, with lively guitar playing and an interesting drummer. They looked like they were having fun as well." counterfnord.wordpress.com
"Poltergroom are fire and brimstone, Waynes World limited edition stratocastor, creating creepy, scratchy classic rock witchcraftery..."
"Bare chested and with witch’s hats pulled down firmly below the eye line Poltergroom are a trio from London featuring members of Cleckhuddersfax and Man Aubergine. They are pioneers of the cleanest guitar sound and primal ululation." www.bigwowbadges.com
SOUND OF THE SUN
(formerly known as SUPERSTRINGS) with IAN WATSON
“Glorying in the destruction of improvised rock” The Wire Magazine
" this improvising trio have already collaborated with Fred Frith, Geoff Leigh, Karl Blake and Hand of Glory amongst many others ...and seem intent on ripping the guts out of any conventional notion of genre. Over Simon King's effect-laden sound-scapes and Paul May's clattering percussive deconstruction, Atsuko Kamura's intensely emotion vocalisation takes the audience somewhere they have never been - whether they like it or not!"
