Huzzah - time again for some more Subcity Psychedelic Lunacy!
will be finishing off their UK tour with a potentially
head-spinning home-coming performance in the Glasgow University Union on
21st March 2007. After a slew of high-profile gigs with the likes of
Alexander Tucker, Josephine Foster, Jazzfinger
, this heavily
intoxicated aural spine-melt is sure to be a proper knees up! Expect
skittery, densely polyphonic free rhythms (courtesy of Scatter / Bonnie
drummer), wailing post-Ayler
sax and the most physical
double-bass playing you've ever seen from a man in his 60s.
had to cancel his last appearance with Subcity due to
illness, but this time it's a sure thing. Performing a vocal and electric
guitar set, this one's going to be pure molten psych. As a lynchpin in the
90s British underground folk/improv scene, Richard Youngs has quietly built
himself a massive reputation for twisting archaic, rustic folk forms into
fresh, liberated mediums without sacrificing any of the magic that
characterised the best 60s/70s shamanism. Glasgow performances from this
man are beyond rare - miss this at your peril.
spine-tingling vocals are still haunting the recesses of
everyone's brain matter after her last Subcity appearance with Matthew Bower
and Chris Corsano
. Switching from a gentle, innocent melancholia to a
full-on paint-stripping banshee wail at the drop of a hat, this former
member is an true underground jewel. And you will never have
heard a pedal-steel guitar played like this in your life!
So come on down to the GUU on 21st March at 9pm for an evening of beautiful,
unique and exhilarating live music. BLACK STATIC TRANSMISSION
some suitably chilling audio entertainment between bands as an extra bonus.
